Self Catering Holiday Homes in Mountshannon, Co. Clare
Mountshannon is situated on the western shores of Lough Derg, north of Killaloe in East Clare. It is a quaint village with a wonderful marina where leisure cruisers dock on their journey on the Shannon River, giving the village a lively ambiance. Visitors are catered for with a great selection of pubs, a local hotel and cafes and restaurants. For walkers there is the East Clare Way a system of well-marked trails to follow in the area. There is an abundance of woodland around Mountshannon with not only interesting flora and fauna but also wooden carvings and sculptures commissioned by local artists dotted throughout.
Around Lough Derg runs the Lough Derg Cycle way which incorporates 132kms of sign posted cycle paths. Golf is very popular in the region - Woodpark Golf Club which is 3km from the village offers both golf and pitch and putt. For the more ambitious golfer Dromoland, East Clare Golf Club or the famous Doonbeg golf course are all within an hour’s drive of the village.
Mountshannon can be much more than a lakeside holiday; it is an ideal location to tour the rest of Clare and Limerick. Visitor attractions like the Aillwee Caves, Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park as well as the Burren National Park are all a drive away.
