Tipperary Lakeshore House

Epitome of Lakeshore Opulence

Book This Home

County Tipperary

This extremely elegant historic mansion overlooks Lough Derg, and is one of the finest houses on the lake.

Approached by a winding avenue which travels through mature parkland and woodlands, it affords spectacular views and the utmost privacy being set well back from the road, and invisible except from the lake.

The 734 square metre Victorian main house, with some forty rooms, was extensively refurbished yet retains the integrity of the original period features – ornate cornicing, broad wooden floors, antique marble fireplaces, panelled mahogany doors and decorative architraves.

Well-proportioned classic interiors

The formal entrance is from an expansive west facing terrace that overlooks an immaculate stretch of lawn descends running down to the lake.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

The glazed and tiled porch opens through double doors into an entrance hall, currently furnished with an antique games table, piano, a black marble fireplace, and an eclectic mix of pictures and art that set the tone for the home.

​Leading off the drawing room, via a hallway that spans the ground floor, is yet another classic reception room, a vibrant and atmospheric library, busy with books.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Much used for television, the elaborate white marble fireplace is fitted with a more practical wood-burning stove.​

A back staircase to first floor accommodation, fitted with a chair lift, is accessed from a doorway in the library, as is the store of logs for the stove.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Beyond the library, in the same wing, is an alternative and more intimate television sitting room, decorated in luminous lemon yellow.

This room has a generous if unexpected bathroom adjacent – a legacy from a former layout.

To the southern side of the entrance hall, there is a formal dining room.

Extravagantly draped windows, with a large open Adams fireplace and Chippendale chairs, was there ever a more charismatic setting for a celebratory dinner?

Adjoining the Dining room there is a short corridor leading past a cloakroom and small office to the Kitchen and Breakfast room.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

A purposeful blend of country style and professional catering, the kitchen is well appointed for feeding such a large household – with three separate cookers.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Additional contiguous rooms include a Butlers pantry and a larder. Those quirky ceiling hooks would have been intended for hanging hams and the like…

The cosy breakfast room situated just beyond the kitchen has a woodburning stove, and a door to the cobbled courtyard, which is at the centre of this home.

Bedrooms

An impressive return staircase leads from behind the entrance hall to a bright sky-lit landing.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

There are four magnificent and individual bedrooms off the main landing on the first floor.

Three have glorious westerly views to the lake – one with an awesome balcony – while the fourth has views over the central courtyard.

Two of them enjoy en-suite bathrooms, with separate shower rooms just across the hall for the other two.;

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

A dog-leg corridor brings you to the elegant master bedroom with its stunning mahogany four poster bed, dual aspect views, and black & white tiled en-suite bathroom.

Out & About

 

The Shannon and its lakes dominate the midlands, and with that there comes fishing and food.

Just jump right in…

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7Portumna Golf Club

Here are some of our favourites…

And call by Nenagh Farmers Market on Saturdays if you’re around

For those keen on hunting there are a choice of local packs within easy reach, namely The Ormond Hunt, The North Tipperary Foxhounds and The Galway Blazers. The property is also the perfect terrain for a private shoot with good woodland coverage.

 

The Locality

 

 

The pretty village of Terryglass is just 10 minutes away, and has a long and distinguished history with a monastery being founded there by St. Columba in 549 A.D. The famous Book of Leinster was produced at the Monastery and can now be seen in Trinity College Dublin.

The village has a strong reputation for food and has two award-winning bar and restaurants — Paddy’s Bar and The Derg Inn — that are well worth a visit or two.

Portumna, 20 minutes away, is the nearest sizable town, home to the Workhouse Museum, a chilling example of this much hated alternative to starvation. The bridge here is the nearest Shannon crossing point and the link to Galway and the West.
You may also like to visit the gardens of popular Portumna Castle – more of a fortified house, with renaissance influences unusual for the period in Ireland.

YH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7

Nenagh is a little further away in the opposite direction, but is considerably better served with shops and restaurants.
While you’re there, you might like to check out the medieval Nenagh castle, and climb its 101-step spiral staircase. Access to the tower is through a passageway within the base of the wall.

Cycling is best done in the 1,500 acres Portumna Forest Park at the top end of the lake, which is also home to the annual Forest Marathon and 100k Ultra Marathon.

Lough Derg at 118k sq in area and 39k long is the third largest lake in Ireland, and the last lake on the Shannon system before it meets the Atlantic Ocean.
The river Shannon itself is the longest river in the British Isles, and more importantly, the most navigable…
The best way to explore the lake is by boat, as it is deeply indented with no handy shoreline cycle route.

Fishing is one of the main attractions to the region, and the Pike which is the largest of the freshwater predators, is a prime target. There is no close season for pike in Ireland and anglers may fish for pike all year round.

The heritage town of Killaloe at the southern tip of the lough is the birthplace of Brian Boru, high King of Ireland at the dawn of the second millennium. It is also home to Limerick University Sports Adventure Centre – which provides a wide range of activities.

 

How to get there – Car advised…

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Belfast or Shannon airports.
Shannon Airport – less than 1 and a half hours from the house.
Dublin Airport – less than 2 and a half hours from the house.
Cork Airport – is also less than 2 and a half hours from the house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is approx 2 and a half hours away
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is approx 3 hours from the house.
