Portumna, County Galway, Western Ireland
Tucked away in east Galway, Lakeview House is nestled in the foothills of the Slieve Aughty Mountains with the lake literally on its doorstep. This family run enterprise has the highest star rating that Failte Ireland can award. Bicycles are available for those who wish to racket up the tempo and for the adrenaline junkies kayaks are provided, all free of charge.

About the neighbourhood
Portumna is literally just a stone’s throw away where you can enjoy a stroll in the lake fringed forest park and wildlife sanctuary, visit the castle or enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants.
Mountshannon is just a short spin in the other direction where you can enjoy all the amenities that the river Shannon is deservedly famed for.

Lakeview House is an ideal location for touring the West of Ireland, Connemara and the Shannon region. You are just 40 minutes from Galway, Ennis and Limerick.
big excitement in our area as white tailed eagles, very rare are now awaiting their chicks to hatch, 6 miles from our house in mountshannon.
You and your family can enjoy carting in nearby Tynagh, pony trekking in Flower Hill Equestrian Centre or horse riding in Slieve Aughty Riding Centre...
