John and Marian invite you to rent this 300 year old farmhouse 'Chestnut Cottage' property which is located on the McDonald Farm in Lusmagh, Banagher, Co. Offaly only 1 km from the Shannon River. This property is Bord Failte (Irish Tourism Board) approved. It has been home to the McDonald family for generations. The Chestnut Cottage has been carefully restored, keeping as much as possible of the 'Old World' character of the house while adding all the modern comforts. It is located near the main farm, in a beautiful farm garden with an orchard.
The Chestnut Cottage is in the Galway / Offaly area, three miles from the popular river town of Banagher in Co. Offaly. The large bridge that crosses the Shannon County Galway River opens the way to visit the west of Ireland. Banagher is famous for its Irish music pubs, river cruises, Bog walks and rail hikes, great fishing, (pike fishing is particularly rewarding), excellent super markets and shops, restaurants and hotels. Most pubs serve really good food too.
