About the property

Self catering holiday home, sleeps up to 8 in 4 bedrooms

This stunning Riverside Holiday Home is located on the eastern banks of the beautiful River Shannon in the scenic town of Ballina, County Tipperary & looks across the river to historic Killaloe in County Clare and the mountains beyond making it the perfect vacation getaway location. Our beautiful comfortable modern architecturally designed home is finished to a five star level & is available for weekly rent throughout the year. It will appeal to couples and families seeking peace, tranquility, comfort set in beautiful safe location. It has been designed in an open plan style. We have used high ceilings, large skylights & lots of glass to allow in as much light as possible and bring the magnificent river & mountain views right into the home. It is fitted throughout with all the modern conveniences you could want including SKY satellite TV and also has hi-speed wireless Internet for those who feel the need to keep in touch with the modern world. The house sleeps up to 8 adults in comfort and but can sleep up to 10 if needed. We have cot/crib for babies as well as a high chair. The house is naturally warm and has gas central heating for those chilly mornings. The rate we quote includes all utilities, linens and taxes, we do not charge extra.

The mature secure gardens feature a Liscannor stone patio outside the kitchen and living rooms allowing the large doors to be opened out on sunny days bringing the gardens and views into the home. A stone path makes its ways through the grass to a large wooden deck looking down onto the river below where a large BBQ allows for outdoor cooking & dinning. The garden and decking have outdoor lighting and an outdoor power supply.

Local amenities and activities include shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, river cruising, fishing, sailing, canoing, walking, hiking, cycling, boat hire, golfing and much more. The purpose built tourist office is located on the historic 13 arch bridge that's links Ballina & Killaloe. It houses the tourist office, local library and the newly developed Brian Ború Centre. Every Sunday morning a local farmers market offering all sorts of local produce from food to gifts takes place 'between the waters' opposite the tourist office and should not be missed. Ballina has many good restaurants and pubs including the exceptional 'Cherrytree restaurant'. Killaloe has a network of charming narrow streets, flanked by old shops & houses, that climb up the steep hillside & look down over the 13th century cathedral. Water sports are the key to the popularity of Ballin & Killaloe. Boats of all kinds from rowing boats to Shannon cabin cruisers are available for hire and water-skiing has long been popular. Short tours of the River Shannon and Lough Derg are available from the Ballina side aboard the 50-seater passenger boat Spirit of Killaloe. During July the Brian Boru Festival brings traditional music and a variety of entertainment, inside and outside, to the towns for a week. Towards the end of July the Killaloe International Music Festival centered on the historic cathedral, concentrates on the classics and is growing in reputation around the world. Every September, Killaloe is the venue for the European Pike Angling Championships. The historic towns of Killaloe & Ballina offer an exceptionally beautiful riverside setting and access to Ireland’s greatest waterway. The River Shannon is a popular cruising, boating & angling destination extending from Donegal in the North, with canal extensions to Galway in the west, Dublin in the east and Waterford in the south extends to Limerick where it enters the Atlantic Ocean.

The property is located just 30 minutes from Shannon airport, 20 minutes from Limerick, 1 hour from Galway, 1 hour 45 minutes from Dublin Airport, it is an ideal base for exploring Ireland and it's Celtic heritage.

We look forward to welcoming you to this unique part of beautiful Ireland.

About David Gaughan

This our personal holiday home. We built this property in 2003 to a very high standard and visit it regularly from our main base in Dublin whenever time allows. It is our escape from city life. We feel that the home's unique location and design offer something special and different to the discerning traveller. We have rented property all over the world and know what we like. We have put our experiences into the property, such as the unique touches you find in a home as opposed to your standard generic holiday rental and we do not charge extra for utilities and linen, it's all included in your quote.

David Gaughan purchased this house in 2000

Why David Gaughan chose County Tipperary

This property is not just a holiday rental, it is a home. It is fitted out to a 5 star level with all modern conveniences and top quality bedding and linens. Every room has a view, which believe or not is even beautiful in the Irish rain! The property is uniquely positioned within walking distance to great shops, pubs and restaurants but the main attraction is its tranquil location overlooking the beautiful River Shannon.

What makes this house unique

A great homely getaway with stunning views set in a quiet location guaranteed to relax you, yet only minutes walk from all the amenities you could require. The house is well positioned as a relaxing base to see all Ireland has to offer to the traveller.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We found it so easy to book this property. We arrived late in the evening and the directions given took us right to the door. Immediately felt at home, there was games and TV and videos for the kids plus a games room full of toys for the younger ones (4 Kids!). The house was Fabulous, spacious and welcoming. Great sized bedrooms with quality linens and loads of bathrooms. I loved the beautiful fully functioning kitchen and we relaxed outside and watched the sun set on the deck over a glass of wine.

The following days were spent visiting all the wonderful sights and attractions and we thought this property was such a perfect base from which to set off and return to. We had lunch most days on the road, but it was great to arrive home in the evening and prepare dinner as the kids played outside and my older teenagers walked to the local village for ice-cream. All very safe. Loved to sit and watch the boats move up and down the Shannon from the fabulous deck. Worst part was having to leave. We will be back…

It's Impossible to Fully Describe

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Ballina/Killaloe was incredibly amazing and impossible to fully describe in words!

This rental doesn't feel like a rental at all. We felt like we were staying at a friend's home-and a friend who has really great taste! The shared living area, newly remodeled kitchen, walls of windows looking over the River Shannon, five star hotel quality bedrooms, private back yard filled with spring blooms...and on and on, made this truly our home away from home. And it was all made more complete with the dear, dear property manager, Eamon! He was always just a phone call or text away, ready to support us in any way we needed.

We definitely plan to return!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you David for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a wonderful view every morning upon rising and when we stayed up far too late, a wonderful sunset. The location was perfect for us to take day trips to all the places we wanted to visit from a home base. We didn't have to pack and unpack every day like we would have if we had done the B&B route. The home was accessible and perfect for our needs. I would HIGHLY recommend the restaurant Tuscany on the Ballina side for excellent food and the Super Valu grocery market had all we needed to make our own full Irish breakfast every morning.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you as guests (finally!) and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Tuscany is great (We ate there last night) as is Goosers and the Cherrytree. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future. David & Roisin

One week stay at The Derg

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience in Ballina-Killaloe, June 2017. Eamon and Mariah met us at the Shannon Airport, and we followed them in our rental car to the house in Ballina. Easy drive. We were a party of four. With three master suites, space and privacy were no problem. The house was in excellent condition and is in a great location. With our base in the Ballina-Killaloe area, we were able to spend the week driving and visiting many locations within an hour to an hour and one half from the house; Adare, Bunratty (including Durty Nelly's), Cliffs of Moher (Lehinch to Doolan to Black Head then back to Ballina, a drive around Lough Derg) and many other sights! We would rent this house again in a heartbeat! Thanks to David and especially to Eamon!

Beautiful and spacious! Incredible view!!

  • 5 of 5

This home fit our family of 8 perfectly. Including sitting down for dinner together. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Enough sitting space in the family room for all of us to be together and the property managers were great. They even accommodated or early morning check in. We would definitely stay again. Great central location for day trips all over the south. Lovely town to explore in its own right. It had everything we needed.

The beautifully located self catering vacation holiday home rental is on the Ballina (Tipperary) side of the river Shannon where it joins beautiful Lough Derg, one of the largest river & lake waterways in northern Europe with over 350 miles of lakes & rivers you can cruise on. The historic bridge joins Ballina with it twin heritage town of Killaloe (Clare) on the opposite side of this mighty river Shannon. This house is an ideal base to explore the local area & the rest of Ireland from. The local area has many high quality restaurants & public houses (pub) to greet you after a hard days play on the water, hiking & climbing in the near by mountains that flank the twin towns from both sides, biking the many byways, fishing the river or golfing on the near by greens. Brian Boro's Fort, Dingle, Killarney, King John's Castle, Bunratty Castle, the Ring of Kerry, the Burren, Connameara, Ennis, Lahinch, Liscannor, Limerick, Galway are all near by.
