Property Features

A linear spread

This is a commodious cottage, just a single room deep, that spans one side of the walled garden.
From a south facing patio towards one end of the cottage, the entrance opens directly into an expansive living space.

Comfortable sofas and a wood-burning stove define the sitting room at one end. An eclectic country-cottage style kitchen features a large eight seater rustic table at its centre.

Curtained French doors to the gardens mimic the entrance.

A sizeable pantry off the living area doubles as a larder and utility room.
Rough stone whitewashed walls and unpolished timber flooring are testament to the original cottage.

Beyond the kitchen, a central vestibule comes as a hiatus to the remaining accommodation, with a liberal mix of furnishings that include a gilded Diwan day-bed which can be used as an additional single.

 

Opposing French doors open onto the walled garden terrace, and a generous sunroom complete with leather swivel armchairs to the front.

 

Along the corridor, the first bedroom is snug Queen sized double. It is wheelchair accessible with a spacious bathroom, complete with double ended Drummond bath and delightful Victorian fittings.
The bathroom also has a door to the corridor which can be used if the vestibule Diwan is utilised.

 

Facilities & Ameneties
The master bedroom reveals an impressive mahogany Queen sized bed and a wood-burning stove.

 

A step up, the substantial master ensuite has an elegant walk-in twin shower and ample wardrobe space.

There are crisp white 800 thread count linen and luxury towels throughout.

The Bar

At the west end of the cottage, with access from either the walled garden or the front, is an autonomous bar, which is a relaxing social nook to chill out in at the end of a day. The counter is fashioned from storm toppled trees on the estate. There is an exclusive WC adjoining the bar.

Outside

The cottage is obviously named for its spectacular private walled garden. Beautifully maintained and with a magnificent glasshouse spanning the northern facade which will delight the horticulturist.

There is a broad and fully furnished terrace here which is perfect for barbecues. In addition, guests have access to the two tennis courts, walks around the estate and of course the lake.

Out and About

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

Things to do

  • Go fishing with Mike Murray
  • If you love honey Brookfield’s your place
  • Get into a kayak and explore
  • And call by Nenagh Farmers Market on Saturdays if you’re around

The Locality

Terryglass, less than 15 minutes from the house – has a scenic harbor on the lake with Watersports and fine Gastropubs.
Portumna, 20 minutes away, is the nearest sizable town, home to the Workhouse Museum, an chilling example of this much hated alternative to starvation.

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.

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.

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.

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 cottage.
Dublin Airport – less than 2 and a half hours from the cottage.
Cork Airport – is also less than 2 and a half hours from the cottage.

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