Newly refurbished lakeside holiday home in Ballykeeran, 5 minutes drive from Athlone. Ideal for nature lover's and fishing or boating enthusiasts. Also, near many local hotels for wedding groups. Stunning setting with two acres of landscaped garden and woodland available to roam. Enjoy private access to Lough Ree and the river Shannon. Close to many award winning restaurants in Glasson. The perfect retreat only 1 hour from Dublin. Boat available for hire at the house. Sleeps up to 8 adults.

The space

One of the few houses with access to Lough Ree available to rent. Ideal to use as a base for tourism or water activities. Would also suit family breaks or people who want to be close to Athlone for weddings, business or conferences. Would particularly suit those who plan to cruise the lakes or the Shannon but want the security of a house to stay in case of bad weather. Three large bedrooms and fully equipped house with all appliances provided.

Guest access

The whole house can be let.

Interaction with guests

Available to give guests a tour of the property and grounds. Will offer plenty of advice on local sights, restaurants and places to go rain or shine. Can advise on boat hire options available.

Other things to note

Given proximity to lake (100m from house) supervision of young children would be essential.

Just a beautiful home set up against the lake. Kit was awesome! He made the entire process so easy. The home/town is centrally located making it easy to get anywhere north, south, east or west. Athlone was beautiful with the worlds oldest pub and the best sea food chowder anywhere.

Cheap place to stay in the area. We needed somewhere to stay between the Cliffs of Moher and Dublin and this was a great midpoint. Tons of space and bedrooms if needed. We were only there for the night so we didn't utilize much of the house. One thing to note was that the fridge was very small. If you're planning on staying there long and cooking meals, keep that into consideration. One downfall were the beds- they weren't very comfortable and the pillows were extremely flat. And only 2 were provided per bed. I had to go into one of the spare bedrooms and take pillows from that rooms. Besides that it was good. Check-in was easy and Kit was easy to reach.

Response from Kit:
I am disappointed you did not enjoy your stay more. Your complaints are not issues that have been raised by other guests as other reviews will attest. On the night you stayed there were 10 pillows for 3 guests which does not seem an unreasonable number. On inspection some of the pillows were a little flat and I have replaced these so that this issue does not occur for other guests.

Originally from Cork City now living in Athlone, Ireland. I have spent the last 10 years working in the pharmaceutical industry in R&D and product development. Busy dad to young two sons so not as much time to travel as I once had. These days I mostly travel for long weekends away for rest and relaxation with my wife. We have a thing for out door hot tubs and Korean restaurants.
