John and Marian invite you to rent this 300 year old farm homestead 'Chestnut Cottage' which is situated on the McDonald farm at Lusmagh, Banagher, Co. Offaly only 1 Km from the River Shannon. This property is Bord Failte (Irish Tourist Board) approved. It was the original home of the McDonald family for generations. The Chestnut Cottage has been lovingly restored, keeping as much as possible of the 'Old World' character of the cottage while adding all the modern comforts. It is located close to the main farmhouse, in a nice farm garden with an orchard.
The Chestnut Cottage is in the Galway/Offaly area, three miles from the popular riverside town of Banagher in Co. Offaly. The wide bridge which crosses the River Shannon to County Galway opens the way to tour the west of Ireland. Banagher is famous for its Irish music pubs, its river cruises, Bog walks and Rail tours, Great Fishing, (Pike fishing is particularly rewarding.), Excellent super markets and shops, Restaurants, and Hotels. Most of the pubs serve really good food also.
