There is a village pub and shop for groceries on your door step. Nenagh market town is 10 minutes drive for all the pubs,coffee shops,restaurants, supermarkets and boutiques. A cleaning, shopping service and chef are available for you to book if required. Personal help with any bookings and directions is always available.
