The lake Lough Derg - described as Ireland's Pleasure Lake - is 5 minutes by foot and the local Kilgarvan Quay harbour area is a scenic, peaceful and idyllic small quay which is used for fishing, boating or just a stroll around by locals and tourists alike in the summer time.
Portumna (15 minute drive away - also the nearest bait shop) is a prime coarse angling centre renowned for its quality angling. This area offers good fishing waters which have a good track record. There are several prime angling hotspots, a number which are official match stretches located on the river Shannon itself and the Northern Shores of Lough Derg. For anglers there is an additional fridge/freezer in the garage which can be used as bait fridge and there is plenty of space in the garage for wet gear and tackle storage.
Lake Boats can be rented locally in the area and there is a fishing lake nearby stocked with trout where fishing on an hourly basis can be arranged.(www.northtipperaryanglingcentre.ie).

A perfect week.
The House is everything you expect from visiting the webpage. It's even better in reality.
The interior is complete, you will have complete autonomy in the house and after a short visit in a local supermarket you can enjoy the kitchen and again the complete setting.
Connie and Mike are perfect hosts. The day you arrive, the house is prepared and the introduction is comprehensive.
Both take really care and make the stay a real pleasure.
Staying one week is actually not enough, you will like to stay a much longer period.
I will be back!

Our home away from home!
We instantly felt right at home & the only thing that could have made our experience better was if we never had to leave! The four of us enjoyed every aspect ShannonView had to offer. We were all more than comfortable & enjoyed using the spacious kitchen/dining area together that was equipped with everything we needed & more! The views from the gorgeous conservatory were ever changing daily & the crackling sounds from the wood burning fireplace helped enhance the already existing peacefulness surrounding us! Not to mention you will not want to get up after sitting on those oversized comfy chairs & couch! Although it's totally private we were only a short drive from grocery stores, our favorite pub-Paddy's & daytrip adventures. Added bonus: our gracious hosts Connie & Mike! They really did think of everything! They took great care of us & we were thrilled about the pre-paid mobile phone! From our first point of contact to our farewell! We couldn't have hoped for anything more! The whole experience by far exceeded our expectations! We can't wait to come back to our home away from home!!!
This place has everything!! Truly a memory creator!
My girlfriend and I traveled here with my parents who are both in their 60s as a home-base to explore Ireland. The entire process was so easy from start to finish, and far exceeded our expectations. Anything, and everything you could think of could be found within the home, including wi-fi which was very useful in planning our day trips. Washer/Dryer was a huge plus, and so was the dishwasher. There is plenty of space for a large family, and plenty to keep kids entertained with. Very private, and secluded. We immediately felt right at home with Connie's help, and would recommend this home to anyone. Plenty of off street parking (we had 2 cars), and there was room for more. There is a large grocery store (Tesco) about 20-30 minutes away to stock up on food and beer. We all had tesco mobile phones, and reception was great from this location. All Pro's and no Con's. Thanks Connie for a wonderful stay!!

Best rental home we ever stayed in!
Perfect place for our family to spend our Ireland vacation.The house is beautiful and the view is fabulous especially from the conservatory. The house has all the amenities and our hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating, we very much enjoyed their company. The rates are reasonable and the location is convenient. We felt very much at home there and there is no doubt we will stay there again on our next Ireland vacation.
