Eleven of us stayed for a weekend for my sister's hen. We couldn't rate it highly enough. The house had everything we needed. We spent most of our weekend on the terrace as we were blessed with nothing but sunshine for our stay. There was plenty to keep us occupied if the weather hadn't been on our side from the...

He has decked out the house so well with lots of lovely attention to detail. While we didn't get to use all of the facilities, the house...

Riverside Paradise is a lovely, modern house on the river. The house is spacious and has everything. We particularly enjoyed making dinners andbreakfasts with the 2 couples we travelled with to Esker. Clonmacnoise Monastery is nearby and a must see site. The house is in a very quiet, country setting and perfect for anyone looking for a calm Irish vacation!

Management response:

About the neighbourhood
Banagher is a scenic and charming Shannon-side village with an impressive history. As one of the few crossing points on the Shannon between the provinces of Leinster and Connaught, the village of Banagher held an important military strategic position. Any army that wanted to cross the river had few choices: Banagher, Athlone, Shannonbridge or Portumna. As a result numerous castles, forts and Martello towers dot the surrounding landscape.<BR><BR>Corrigans “The Corner House” Public House, located in the centre of the town, is a traditional Irish family-run pub. Flynns Bar & Lounge is a family-run pub serving food and drink and also has live music at weekends.<BR><BR>Birr Golf Club (18 hole golf course, Par 70) and Esker Hills Golf Club are both nearby.
