  • “Wonderful stay in a beautiful part of Ireland.”

    Lorrha has many hidden charms and is rural yet close enough to nearby towns of Portumna and Nenagh.

    Lorrha has many hidden charms and is rural yet close enough to nearby towns of Portumna and Nenagh. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottages were clean and cosy - we especially enjoyed the fires in the dark, winter months. The donkeys also were an added bonus and gave a taste of the real Ireland. We will be back! Thank you to Roland and Pauline who made us very welcome and checked in to see that everything was to our satisfaction.

About the location


Portumna 5.5 miles; Galway City 50.5 miles.

The historical, pretty village of Lorrha is situated in the north of County Tipperary and is set on an ancient 6th century monastic site. Lorrha offers two pubs and a playground and is steeped in history with its famous monastery and its high crosses dating back to its founder St Ruadhan's time. Visitors to Lorrha love getting lost in time while at this lovely village, which includes an 11th century church, the Dominican Priory, a 15th century Augustinian Abbey, and The Friars Lough, famed for its legend of the monster beneath the water. Just five minutes’ drive away is the busy town of Portumna with a good selection of shops and pubs, along with Portumna Castle and Gardens. Watersports can be enjoyed at any of the stops along the Lough Derg drive, including Terryglass, Portumna, Scariff and Mountshannon, fishing is in abundance on the River Shannon and visitors also have the choice of four great golf courses close by. The larger towns of Nenagh and Birr are within 30 minutes drive, the latter being home to the famed Birr Castle and people come from all over the country to Birr Vintage Week during the summer. The famous Rock of Cashel Castle and Galway City are both only an hours’ drive away. Galway City is famed worldwide for its charming cobbled streets, fantastic shopping and nightlife, traditional Irish Music and, of course, the Salthill Promenade. An excellent location for exploring all that this wonderful region has to offer.
