You and your family can enjoy carting in nearby Tynagh, pony trekking in Flower Hill Equestrian Centre or horse riding in Slieve Aughty Riding Centre or Lough Hill Pony Trekking Centre.
Trigger your children’s imagination with the famous telescope in Birr Castle and the extensive monastic settlement on Holy Island. Portumna and Bunratty Castle also await you. Let your own inner child run riot.
For those wishing to trace family roots, Woodford Genealogy centre is a five minute drive.
Woodford also boasts of a beautiful playground. Derrycrag Wood and the Millennium Oaks Park also await you.
You will not have experienced rural Ireland ambience and welcome unless you pop over to the local pubcumshop where the Guinness is always served to perfection. The Cornerstone pub and shop is a throwback to a bygone Ireland. The smell of the freshly baked brown bread and scones will have you keep going back for more. In case you decide to imbibe one or more, there is no need to worry about the short journey home as a taxi is sourced in order to ensure your safe return. Your every need has been catered for.
Portumna is literally just a stone’s throw away where you can enjoy a stroll in the lake fringed forest park and wildlife sanctuary, visit the castle or enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants.
Mountshannon is just a short spin in the other direction where you can enjoy all the amenities that the river Shannon is deservedly famed for. For a different type of walk go for a game of golf in one of the 4 golf courses within a 15 mile radius.
Lakeview House is an ideal location for touring the West of Ireland, Connemara and the Shannon region. You are just 40 minutes from Galway, Ennis and Limerick.
