Join us to stay in this stunning hotel on the banks of the majestic River Shannon, with stunning views of the twin heritage towns of Ballina in Co. Tipperary and Killaloe in Co. Clare, and their award-winning gardens providing the ideal backdrop to the tranquil beauty of Lough Derg.
Steeped in history, Killaloe was once the capital of Ireland and home to King Brian Boru our greatest Viking slayer. The town is now famed for its charming narrow streets and the 12th century St. Flannan’s Cathedral. A rare thirteen-arch bridge links the medieval charms of Killaloe with the lakeside walks in Ballina.
Arrive at your leisure on Monday, October 30th and stay for three nights bed & breakfast. I have included two evening meals in your package, so you may decide to wander into the town and sample one of their many restaurant and pub menus for your third evening.
The hotel rooms are designed to maximise the views of the lake, so you can relax, unwind and drink in the stunning scenery.
For the water-babies in your family, there is a fantastic 18m deck-level swimming pool in the Leisure Centre for a start.Or you might decide to indulge in the Jacuzzi, while the more active among you sample in the unique 40metre, figure of 8 water slide.
A Kids Club onsite will cater for the children daily, providing supervised activities, scheduled events and some free time for the parents to relax and indulge themselves. Closer to the time I’ll be able to give you more details on the events and activities planned for the Halloween break.
