Autumn brings wonderful colours and an easier way of life here in the country. The hedgerows are overflowing with berries and fruit ready for the picking and the trees and woodlands are changing to their amazing hues of brown, gold, red and all variations that even the most skilled artist would find hard to capture.
Situated in the peaceful countryside of North Tipperary, our self catering cottages allow you to enjoy some peaceful and cosy time in your cottage and yet you are so close to the wonderfully welcoming community of Terryglass.
This time of year you can enjoy the forest walks in Portumna, Kayaking with Becky and Rueben on the Lough Derg Blueway, cycling the country lanes using our bikes and then finish your evening in the cosy surrounds of The Derg Inn or Paddys Pub.
We are delighted to see that Aqua Splash makes a return to Lough Derg for the 2018 season. This is a great place to allow children (of all ages!) to enjoy the water, burn off some energy and simply have a splash in the wonderful Lough Derg. It is another example of the great activities that can be found all around the lake area, all part of the Lough Derg Blueway Dromineer is one of the lovely villages found around the lake and while there you can enjoy coffee and treats in the Lake Cafe
Lough Derg is a haven for a range of local craft producers, artisan food makers and artists. Spending some time in this peaceful area allows you an opportunity to really engage in a journey of discovery into a rich vein of surprises in the neighbouring counties of Galway, Clare and Tipperary.
One can experience all this as part of a cycle or touring route along the lake shores and some examples that we can recommend are:
It’s official! The Lough Derg Blueway, a collaboration between Galway, Clare and Tipperary County Councils, designed to develop quality on and off water trails and activities all around the majestic Lough Derg, on the River Shannon is open for business.
The Blueway is a network of canoe trails, walks, cycle routes and tourism service with one aim in mind: ‘Get out and about’! This area is so accessible, unspoilt and peaceful with some many natural attractions on offer and we believe it is the ideal destination for your activity break. Just watch the video and see for yourself!
