A most peaceful and tranquil location situated on the banks of The Grand Canal, which passes at the bottom of the garden to this property and links Dublin and the River Shannon. The nearest village is 5 minutes away (Daingean)and 20 minutes from the County town of Tullamore, Co Offaly. Centrally located to provide an excellent base for touring this wonderful countryside. A very comfortable and cosy bungalow with very large lawned gardens providing perfect accommodation for both families or couples.
We built this Villa in 2009 after spending time staying at a friends villa near by, we where so attracted to the landscape and the wonderful 360 degree views that we set about finding a plot. This plot for us and its location couldnt have been more perfect. We didnt want to be isolated but in the same token wanted to feel that when we stay here we can completely relax and get away from it all and this location makes us feel exactly that. It's so nice to spend time here during the day and then to venture to one of the many fabulous resteraunts near by, there are all genrarlly good value to and if you dont fancy that then spending the evening siiting outside the property watching the sun go down over spain and the algarve is very nice to.
Liam Chivers purchased this bungalow in 1996
We bought this site in 1996 so that we could have a holiday home near to my family and this is also the same area that I was born.
We very much love this area for its remoteness but it is close to a small town (5 mins Drive or 40 minute walk along Canal Line) which has two Grocery stores, Butchers, Chemist, Chinese takeaway, Hotel with Restaurant and five Pubs!
If you wish a 20 minute drive will bring you to the main town of Tullamore with its array of Fine Hotels and great Pubs and restaurants which provide for a great night out.
Home from home is perhaps the one we more often hear,
Such peaceful and comfortable surroundings, and we will definitely come back.
The property is approximately a 1 hour drive from Dublin Airports/Ferry Terminals and also approximately 1 1/2 hour drive to Galway and a 20 minute drive to Tullamore.
Nearest town with Grocers, Butchers, Chemist, Chinese Take Away, Hotel with restaurant and five pubs 5 minutes drive.
It has the feeling of seclusion but is well placed to tour the West of Ireland and is within easy distance of the River Shannon.
