THE SETTING: White Cottage is one of three guest cottages that are set in an idyllic rural setting just 1.5 miles from pretty, award-winning Terryglass village in northern County Tipperary the very center of Ireland. Surrounding the cottages are 140 acres of organic farmland and pastures with horses, newborn lambs in the spring, and with blackberry picking and jam making among the harvest activities of autumn.
          Nearby Terryglass village traces its beginnings to a monastery founded by St. Columba in 549AD. Terryglass is frequently visited for its harbor on Lough Derg, Central Ireland’s largest lake, which makes the village a mecca for sailors and fishermen. Despite its small size, Terryglass offers two excellent eating establishments, the award winning Paddy’s Bar pub/restaurant (with traditional Irish music several times weekly), and the seafood specializing Derg Inn family-run pub/restaurant (music performances often). Less than ten minutes south

 

of Terryglass at Kilgarvin Quay is the gourmet restaurant

Brocka on the Water (great food, no music).
         
Importantly, the nearest store is 5 minutes south of Terryglass at Ballinderry village, or 10 minutes north in Lorrha town. The nearest principal towns with large markets and numerous shops are Portumna (15 minutes north), and Borrisokane (15 minutes south).

 

THE LOCATION: At the northeastern end of Lough Derg, Terryglass is in the very center of the Republic of Ireland. It is perfectly located as a touring base for exploration of most of Ireland, and especially the nearby counties of Tipperary, Offaly, Galway (& the Connemara), Clare, Limerick, Laoise, and Kerry. Principal cities and towns within easy day-trip reach of Terryglass include Dublin, Limerick, Ennis, Galway, Nenagh, Tralee, and Birr. Shannon International Airport is only 1.5 hours from Terryglass. Dublin International Airport is less than 3 hours away. Major attractions within

The owners and their family live on the property and are enthusiastic, knowledgeable hosts, eager to help their guests discover Ireland from a comfortable, central, rural base in County Tipperary.
