  • A range of approved accommodation choices are also provided from bed and breakfast to self catering. .
  • A Great value holiday starting from as little as 650€ for a self catering cottage based on 5 people sharing for 6 nights. 
  • All equipment bikes, kayaks and safety gear provided.
  • No hidden costs, no surcharges, no local payments except the drink! Free Airport / Rail / Bus Transfers.
  • Evening entertainment, traditional Irish music, dancing and craic in one of our local pubs.

A true taste of real rural Ireland based in East Clare, within easy reach of Shannon Airport and Limerick City, on the shores of the River Shannon’s largest lake, Lough Derg, with the glorious background of the Slieve Aughty mountains. 

You get yourself to Shannon Airport or Limerick rail and bus terminus and we’ll collect and return you free.  

There comes a time in one’s life’s quest when the sharing of a place, its light, its ancient stillness yet echoes, its heartfelt warmth and craic offers the pulses and space for an epiphany.
