Valentines Weekend

Treat yourself and your loved one to a special Valentines break!

If you are wondering where to bring your special loved one, we have a suggestion for you!  We can supply the cosy cottage, with some treats from Artisan Chocolate maker Lough Derg Chocolates and you can also book a table in the Derg Inn or Paddys Bar and enjoy wonderful food.

Take some time to ramble the country lanes and see how Spring has already begun with the snowdrops and daffodils popping their heads out.  After your refreshing walk then a sojourn in the sauna will ease those muscles and set you up for a really relaxing evening.

Call us or email and we will make it all possible for you!

Midweek Breaks

Midweek Breaks – Self Catering Cottage

September is our favourite time of year to enjoy a Midweek Break.  Being the optimists that we are, we expect a glorious ‘Indian Summer’ and what better place to take a midweek break is there than the Lough Derg village of Terryglass and the area of Tipperary, East Clare and East Galway.

Here at Fuchsia Lane Farm Holiday Cottages we can offer a midweek break for a couple in one of our cosy cottages for two at the special rate of €180 for three nights. This rate is available for dates between Mon and Thurs during the months of Sept and Oct and subject to availabilty .  We supply all linens, towels etc. You have use of the bikes, walks, woodland meditation space and of course the local pubs, restaurants and lovely lakeside villages.

If you wish to explore outside of the village, Nenagh is the largest town in the locality. Nenagh Castle and Heritage Centre are well worth a visit. You can sample local artisan food produce at the Country Market on Friday mornings and the Farmers Market on Saturdays. Local award-winning eateries and delicatessens during your day’ s sightseeing or shopping include, Cinnamon Alley, Country Choice, and The Pantry Café. The town also has a new public leisure centre with swimming pool, gym and town park with playground. You can enjoy other amenities such as an 18 hole golf club, tennis club, river walks and public library.

The Silvermines mountains and Upperchurch provide some wonderful walking trails and the Lough Derg Way and Hymany Way long distance routes are close to Fuchsia Lane Farm.

Hanly Tweeds is a long established family woollen mills producing quality fabrics and woollen cloths. It is a great place to pick up a unique article of clothing as the perfect gift!

Birr Castle and Gardens will entrance and entertain you for hours! See what was once the largest telescope in the world, view majestic gardens with plant species from all around the globe and let the child in you delight in the tree house. Birr town is a heritage town with magnificent architecture and great cafés and restaurants.

We recommend that you visit Portumna Castle and Gardens, The Irish Famine Workhouse and the wonderful tracks and trails in the Forest Park. Children will also love the playground in the centre of town. The tennis club also welcomes visitors.

Portumna 18 hole Golf Course is located on the edge of the town and there are also opportunities for horse riding and pitch and putt in the area. Pallas Karting is home to Europe’s largest Karting course and also offers the latest craze of Zorbing and other activities.

If you are tempted by the prospect of some retail therapy, Ladies Day boutique, owned by former Rose of Tralee, Muirne Goode, is the place to visit.

Horse riding and pony trekking are available in a number of centres. Agrimhill Horse Farm will bring you along quiet country lanes and along the banks of the picturesque Kylecrow River. Birr Equestrian Centre hold children’s summer camps and regular Sunday treks in the Slieve Bloom mountains.

The recent reintroduction of the White Tailed Eagles and their successful breeding on the islands off Mountshannon makes this lovely lakeside town a must see. While there, why not take the opportunity to visit Holy Island with local historian and guide, Ger Madden? We can give him a call for you!

If you are a lover of chocolate (who isn’t!), a visit to Wilde Irish Chocolates factory in Tuamgraney just outside Scarrif is a treat. Sample the delicious handmade chocolates and experience for yourself this award-winning confectionery.

Tuamgraney also offers the East Clare Heritage centre. This community-run centre is based in the 10th Century St Cronan’s Church, and provides a great insight into Ireland’s monastic past.

The sister towns of Killaloe and Ballina are an ideal place to spend some time. Lovers of good food, scones, coffee and all things nice will have to find some time to linger in The Wooden Spoon. Here Laura Kilkenny’s produce will demonstrate what happens when you put all your love for fine ingredients into your work.

Also in Killaloe James Whelan provides cruises on Lough Derg on his boat, the Spirit of Killaloe, and is a great way to experience the river and lake.

Heading north from Killaloe – Ballina, the Graves of The Leinster Men (signposted from Ballina) affords a panoramic view of the Lough Derg area. Alternatively, follow the Lough Derg Drive along the lake and stop at the viewing point, The Lookout, where you can take in the splendour of the majestic Shannon River.

The lakeside village of Garrykennedy is well known for Larkin’s Pub, another award-winning eatery! Local traditional musicians also favour this spot so you might be in time for a ‘Seisiún’, in addition to the weekly Sunday evening session from 7 to 9pm.

And of course, you can bring your doggie with you!
