Beautiful country home in stunning surroundings. Peace and quiet.

Kilbane is a quaint village that has easy access to many major towns and cities. It is an ideal example of rural Ireland with its stunning views and relaxed feel, perfect for those wishing to get away from their busy lifestyle.
There are many attractions in the immediate area and more further afield if you are feeling adventurous. Lough Derg, is renowned for fishing and has numerous restaurants and good pubs and villages around the lake where you can avail of fishing, sailing, and kayaking.
Also there are wonderful walks around the lake and mountains with mapped routes and plenty of scenic stops. Killaloe is a beautiful village and a wonderful bridge straddles the Shannon River. Killaloe is home to some great restaurants and Traditional Irish music.

East Clare Golf Club

East Clare Golf Club in Bodyke is the closest golf course to us. Bodyke is the only 18 hole golf course in East Clare and is open all year round. The club has an excellent clubhouse with bar and restaurant facilities.

Cyclists can experience many levels of difficulty on the numerous bike routes around Killaloe and Ballina including the most grueling Lough Derg Cycleway.

TJ’s angling centre, located in Ballina is run by TJ himself, a native of the area with extensive knowledge of Lough Derg, its tributaries and the surrounding countryside. Everything you need for your day’s fishing is available here, including a guide for those unfamiliar with the lake’s territory.

TJ's is open from March to September and caters for all, whether you’re a seasoned fisher or an enthusiastic beginner. If required one to one fishing trips can be booked.

For the courageous, one can always take a dip in Lough Derg at Two Mile Gate (Ballycuggaran Beach), which proudly flies the Blue Flag indicating that swimming is safely permitted.

Take the meadering Lough Derg Drive and see the picturesque villages through three different counties. Starting from Killaloe, County Clare and Ballina, County Tipperary, you will travel up the western side of Lough Derg through Ogonnelloe where you will come to the first of several lookout points. Here you can see Inis Cealtra (Holy Island) which is one of the most famous monastic sites in Ireland. Continuing on to Tuamgraney where the East Clare Heritage Centre is located in St. Cronan's Church, which is probably the oldest church still in use in Ireland. Continue on through Scarriff to Mountshannon where at the Mountshannon Harbour you can take a boat to Inis Cealtra (Holy Island).

Killaloe/Ballina has a plethora of picturesque loop walks, one of which is a "self guided" tour of the historical towns. Pick up a free map of Killaloe/Ballina at the Brian Boru Heritage Centre Tourist Office or many other locations and "Follow the Footsteps of Brian Boru." The map pinpoints historical places of interest and you will meander through the towns discovering all that is on offer.
