More about us

  1. We are busy parents of a 14 year old girl and 18 year old boy. As we both work full time vacation is very important to us. We are all active and love the outdoors enjoying in particular walking and cycling the quiet country roads and river and canal banks on our doorstep. We generally vacation in Ireland and spend as much time as possible on the west coast in stunning Connemara where we have a small caravan in a family-friendly park on a beautiful beach where we swim, kayak,mountain trek, pier jump,and cycle. This can be available also, if needed. Equipment - wetsuits, surfboards, bikes, kayak available for use.

Where is it?


Our house is located in a beautiful rural setting in the heart of Ireland close to the River Shannon and several picturesque country villages and within 20 minute drive of several mid-sized country towns e.g. Athlone, Co. Westmeath, Tullamore and the heritage town of Birr, Co. Offaly and Ballinasloe, Co. Galway. Situated in the centre of the country (and only 15 mins from the M6 Dublin-Galway motorway) means that no location is too far away - Dublin 1hr. 30mins, Galway 1hr, Cork 3hrs, Belfast 3hrs. 30mins. Therefore, if you wish to visit the Burren or Cliffs of Moher on the west coast or see the megalithic tombs of Newgrange or the Book of Kells on the east coast you can be in any of these locations in 1hr. 30mins. Depending on your interests there are plenty of locations within easy reach on which we will be glad to advise. However, should you decide to relax and stay local there is plenty to see and do, from the historic 5th century monastic settlement of Clonmacnoise to the wildlife havens of Lough Boora Parklands and the Slieve Bloom Mountains, to the numerous castles (only some haunted!!) of Birr, Kinnity, Cloghan and Clonony. The area is ideal for walking, cycling (we can provide bikes), fishing, golf and the local towns provide historical tours, fun river cruises, shopping, great restaurants and traditional pubs.
