Riverside Paradise is literally, just that! The house is in immaculate condition and the kitchen is extremely well equipped. The view of the lake from the garden is just stunning. We are a family of three generations and each of us enjoyed our stay immensely. The house and garden are both so child friendly. I will never forget the look...

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.
