Welcome to the Barley Harbor Lodge.
We are a Swiss couple and have been living in Newtowncashel on Lough Ree for several years.
With the Barley Harbor Lodge we offer you the opportunity to get to know this original area in the heart of Ireland. There is much to discover. Here, the pub is still heated with locally pruned peat in the open fireplace and the locals are always open for a chat over a pint of Guinness or a glass of Irish whiskey.
The house is very quiet and is located 3 minutes walk from the picturesque Barley Harbor on Lough Ree. Fishing, walking, cycling (signposted paths off the main road), golfing or just relaxing in the 2500 m2 garden around the house is possible.
The lodge was built in 2003 in typical Irish style with stone facade and has high quality fittings.
In the living room, enjoy the cozy warmth of the blazing fire in the stove in the evening. Read a book comfortably or watch a movie in the 32 inch flatscreen TV. In addition to the Irish channels you also receive Swiss SF1, SF2 etc. as well as German channels like ARD, ZDF, Pro7, RTL, VOX, Sat1 and many more.
The house is also heated with central heating.
All 3 bedrooms have double beds. There are two bathrooms. The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge / freezer, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, filter coffee machine, ceramic hob / oven and washing machine. From the large oak table for 6 people they look directly onto the well-kept garden.
Due to its central location in the heart of Ireland, day trips to almost all of Ireland's famous attractions are possible. Be it the Cliffs of Moher, a stroll through Galway, a drive through the lovely landscape of Connemara National Park. Yes, even a trip to the famous Giants Causeway is possible. In one hour you can reach different beaches on the Atlantic Ocean.
We have known Ireland for over 30 years and are happy to share with you our insider tips for trips and sightseeing.
Dublin Airport is just 90 minutes away.
Of course, the region is also very well known among anglers. For example, the Lough Ree World Championships in pike fishing take place every spring. The chance for a meter of pike is probably nowhere as big as here. In addition, Lough Ree is no longer an insider tip for wild trout / brown trouts even among Irishmen. The May Flies lure attracts anglers from all over the world to Lough Ree every year in May and June to witness the unique spectacle and chance of a capitalized Brown Trout. Of course, the Egli / perch anglers are not too short here either. This predatory fish is almost unclaimed by the Irish and accordingly are the stocks in the lake or the tributaries.
Anyone who wants to experience something different, should make a trip with a fishing charter boat to deep sea fishing on the Atlantic Ocean. We have contacts to skippers in Westport and Clew Bay and are happy to help with the reservation.
Internet, bed linen, bath towels, electricity, oil heating and final cleaning are included in the price.
