Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Mountshannon is in the west of Ireland, on the banks of the beautiful Lough Derg, it is typical Irish village, the pace of life is slow and friendly. You can wander up the road to one of three pubs, to listen to some traditional Irish music, or just enjoy a pint with the locals. Further afield is the haunting burren region and then the stunning west coast. Ireland is small, so an hours drive will have you in the cities or Limerick or Galway, Dublin is just an hour and a half away, Ireland is full of history, stories and incredible scenery, there are many festivals up and down the country in the summertime. We also have a small terraced house in Athlone, build in approx 1840, this is in the centre of town and a short walk brings you to many restaurants, Athlone castle and boat trips on the river. The cottage in Athlone sleeps 4.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Our house is not ideal for young children as there are too many craft items, ornaments etc around. No smoking in the house please. We have an outside cat in Mountshannon who loves company and would be happy if you fed her, but she can be taken care of by neighbours. We want you to feel at home, we are keen cooks and would be happy for you to use whatever spices, ingredients you need if you are cooking.

A car is necessary if you are staying in our County Clare home, unfortunately our insurers will not cover drivers from the USA or Canada, however car hire is not expensive in Ireland. You can stay in our home in Athlone if it is not being used for AirBnB (google ' patchwork cottage, Athlone' on AirBnb) without a car.
