“Stunning house and location”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I have just returned from a week stay in this amazing house and it was so much better than I had expected the house itself was spotless and it was very well equipped for large groups of people, the garden was used a lot as the view was stunning, sitting on the jetty in the sun was a favourite as was playing pool and games in the games room. The house was also in a great location it was close enough to town to walk to and there were plenty of towns to see if you wanted to go further afield. We hired a boat as a surprise as it was my mum and dads 50th wedding anniversary and it picked us up at the house thanks to John and Tom for the very entertaining cruise.,we had hired the chef who had a lovely 3 course meal ready for us when we got back-it made it a really special night for everybody all in all I couldn't say enough about this place it was perfect and I loved it and hope I'm lucky enough to get back sometime

“A wonderful and enchanting house on the Shannon river.”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stayed with my wife and family and friends in march 2014 for a weekend. The weather was very kind and we got about quiet a lot, seeing nearby towns and scenery. The town of Banagher which is only minutes away is a very interesting place and has a few Pubs/Restaurants within its environs. Being on the world famous River Shannon ensures lots of beautiful scenery and many interesting photo opportunities with lots of boats lazily passing by. Don't forget if you fish that this is a great place to be to fish and I understand that the property has a boat which may be hired but we fished from the private jetty at the end of the garden. Watch out for the bar that is frequented by horses!! another photo opportunity bet you get a kick out of that.
