For laundry, there is a boot room containing washing machines, tumble dryers, heated drying racks, a sink, a hosing down area, and a long bench for changing out of your gear after a days adventure. Please note that no Electric is included in the price, it is charged by using meter readings . The accommodation has been awarded 4 stars by Failte Ireland, and is luxurious. It offers all that is required for active holiday. Close by there are many loop walks, biking trails, horse riding ,golf, swimming baths with a skate park, and a play area. Lough Derg, which is a 20 minute drive away, has some of the best fishing in Ireland, sailing, water skiing and all other water sports. Silvermines is a quiet and sleepy village, wrapped in a mountain back drop, and is also perfect for getting away from it all. You can relax in front of the log burner, read, paint or stroll along the river. There is a village pub and shop for groceries on your door step, yet Nenagh market town is only a 10 minute drive for all the pubs, coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets and boutiques. There is a farmers market. and country market for all your home made preserves and artisan breads , a Norman castle,genealogy and heritage center.More
