The Lakeside hotel and Leisure Centre is the ideal base for your autumn or winter getaway. The twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina span the River Shannon at the southern point of Lough Derg. With a vast array of activities on land and water, historic sites and a bustling nightlife, Killaloe has long been Ireland's secret vacation destination. And being only one and a half hours drive from Galway city it is closer than you think
Killaloe, on the Clare side of the river, is made up of charming narrow streets, flanked by old shops along the steep hill looking down over the 13th century cathedral.
Ballina on the Tipperary side, offers a newly rejuvenated tree lined park along the riverbank on what was once a railway line. With plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from in the area, you will be spoilt for choice.
The Lakeside has a fantastic special offer available from October called “Winter Warmers” from €85 per person sharing*. This includes two nights accommodation with breakfast on both mornings and dinner on one night of your choice. It also includes a relaxing afternoon tea for two in O Hara’s Bar in the hotel. The perfect getaway. Check out its website on www.lakesidehotel.ie for full details of all offers available and to book or call 061 376122.
