These spacious self catering apartments are located in the village of Portumna, Co. Galway on the shores of Lough Derg. Portumna is located just over 2 hours from Dublin and 1 hour from Galway & Limerick so it is an ideal location for a long stay or short break. The area offers many activities such as cruising, fishing & angling, equestrian centres, karting, golfing and many other visitor attractions.
There are apartments on the gournd floor and on the first floor (up a flight of stairs). All apartments are designed to the highest specifications and each has two bedrooms (one of which is ensuite), and a family bathroom meaning they can accommodate up to 4 people very comfortably.
The kitchens are equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice box, kettle and toaster and washing machine. There is a dining table to seat 4 people and the sitting room has comfy couches and a TV.
All bed linen and towels are provided and there is plenty of onsite parking.
These apartments used to form a part of the Shannon Oaks Hotel & Country Club which unfortunately closed a number of years ago due to an extensive fire at the Hotel. The damaged area of the site has been entirely cordoned off with sturdy hoarding to keep it safe.
A certain number of Apartments are designated “pet-friendly” so all the family can go away together! No need to leave the dog behind this summer. There is an additional charge of €30 per pet payable onsite and you must mention at the time of booking that you will be bringing your dog.
