About Grainne Kirwan
The house has been my family home for many years. My late father was the Harbour Master.
Why Grainne Kirwan chose Clonony Beg
The Harbour Masters House was passed on to me by my late parents. The location of the property on the banks of the Grand Canal is really a Harbour of tranquility. Great place for fishing, to switch off or to use as a base for your holiday.
What makes this House unique
The view from the house (all except one room) is the Grand Canal. It changes every day with boat traffic, fishermen, walkers,cyclists etc. The walled garden is totally private and safe for children.
