Where is it?
Our house is situated in the quiet residential neighbourhood of Cullenagh, which is a short 10 minute walk into the cafes, restaurants, bars and shops of the twin towns of Ballina-Killaloe.
Situated on the banks of the River Shannon, the twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina are amongst Ireland's most picturesque attractions and are linked by a 13 arch bridge, which links not only the two towns, but also the counties of Clare and Tipperary.
Killaloe/Ballina has a wide range of amenities with a number of boutiques, gift stores, art galleries, health and wellness centres, historical sites, and a choice of superb bars, cafes and restaurants.
Shannon Airport is only a 30 minute drive whilst Dublin and Cork airports are less than 2 hours. Galway (European Capital of Culture for 2020) is an hour away by car also.
Limerick City, standing on the River Shannon, with its medieval-era St. Mary’s Cathedral, St. John’s square and one of Ireland's oldest food markets - the Milk Market - is just a short 20 minute drive away. The city’s university was also listed as the Sunday Times University of the Year last year and hosts a large number of summer camps in July and August each year.
We also live close to some of the finest golf courses in the world. Adare Manor and golf club, home to the next Ryder cup, is just a 30 minute drive away.
Want to ditch the car? Then hire a boat and cruise along the many lakeside towns and villages nearby. Our personal favourites are:
- Garrykennedy: home to Larkins - the award winning lakeside pub and restaurant.
- Dromineer: one of the oldest villages on the lake, Dromineer offers a range of visitor facilities and services including accommodation, a pub, sailing club and places to eat.
- Mountshannon :an ideal point to set out for Holy Island and boat trips can be arranged.
We are keen triathletes and can also offer advice to anyone interested in running, swimming and cycling options- of which there are numerous - in the area. The nearby Ballycuggaran has amazing running, hiking and mountain biking options whilst road cyclists are also spoilt for choice. For some amazing drone footage of our beautiful village and surrounding areas, see the highlights of the Quest Lough Derg Adventure Race from 2019 (Ross even makes a cameo appearance!) https://www.facebook.com/QuestIrelandAR/videos/582569162516463/
