About the property

John and Marian invite you to rent this 300 year old farmhouse 'Chestnut Cottage' property which is located on the McDonald Farm in Lusmagh, Banagher, Co. Offaly only 1 km from the Shannon River. This property is Bord Failte (Irish Tourism Board) approved. It has been home to the McDonald family for generations. The Chestnut Cottage has been carefully restored, keeping as much as possible of the 'Old World' character of the house while adding all the modern comforts. It is located near the main farm, in a beautiful farm garden with an orchard.

Dogs accepted!

The Chestnut Cottage is in the Galway / Offaly area, three miles from the popular river town of Banagher in Co. Offaly. The large bridge that crosses the Shannon County Galway River opens the way to visit the west of Ireland. Banagher is famous for its Irish music pubs, river cruises, Bog walks and rail hikes, great fishing, (pike fishing is particularly rewarding), excellent super markets and shops, restaurants and hotels. Most pubs serve really good food too.

Natur und Ruhe mit historischem Charme

  • 2 of 5

Sehr freundliches Gastgeberpaar; kleines altes Hinterhaus; kleine gemütlich ausgestattete Zimmer mit altem Mobilar (z.T. antik); tiefe Türen-Achtung mit dem Kopf! Wir haben einige Male "getroffen". Die Ausstattung von Küche und Bad sind ausreichend. Wenn man über diverse Abnutzungs- und Abwohnspuren in allen Bereichen hinweg sieht kann man sich wohlfühlen. Es war alles halt schon ein bißchen älter, aber zum Großteil sauber. Der Haushund ist anhänglich, läuft immer frei und jagt Kühe und Autos! Hübsches Anwesen mitten einer Weidelandschaft!

Wer das Einfache und Ruhe sucht ist gut aufgehoben. Zum Einkaufen hat man es mit dem Auto nicht weit( ca 3km) Da in der Mitte der Insel gelegen, bot unser Aufenthalt dort die Möglichkeit das zu erkunden und zu erleben was wir wollten. Der Besuch von einzelnen Städten, Wanderungen im Gebirge und Erkundungen der Umgebung waren unproblematisch möglich . Wir hatten 12 Tage sehr gutes Wetter und waren dadurch fast immer den ganzen Tag unterwegs.
