Ashgrove Cottage is a 200 year old farmhouse which has been beautifully restored in recent years.
It has large mature lawns to the front and rear of the house and is situated at the end of a private tree lined avenue nearly one km long. The house is surrounded by lush green fields and rolling hills where beef cattle are reared on the farm. Its private setting is only a three minute drive from the M18 motorway that links the cities of Galway and Limerick. The bustling market town of Ennis with its narrow streets and large choice of shops, pubs and restaurants is only a short drive and taxis are on hand if one does not feel like driving.
Shannon International Airport is just 20 minutes . The house is centrally located for taking in the sights and scenery of Clare and the surrounding counties.From the west coast of Clare with its unspoilt beaches and countryside to the north of the county with its unique limestone landscape of the 'Burren National Park' and along the way taking in the famous 'Cliffs of Moher'and the magnificent drive along Galway Bay between the villages of Doolin and Ballyvaughan.
To the east of the county lies the river Shannon and its largest lake, Lough Derg where pleasure craft are a popular pastime. The lake is surrounded by small towns and villages with their inlets and harbours providing amenities for the mooring boats.
