Eight bedrooms and your own private pier on the shores of Lough Derg

For the €1.5m price tag you’ll also get three cottages, a fountain and a custom-made bar.

SITTING RIGHT ON the water’s edge at Lough Derg is Bunglasha Lodge, a contemporary family home with a sweeping driveway, a limestone pillared entrance and eight bedrooms inside.

But the lodge is one small element of what the €1.5m price tag will get you. As well as an unmatched lakefront location, the three-acre site includes mature woodlands, a private dock and pier, paddocks and a fountain.

If eight bedrooms and four bathrooms aren’t enough, the site also includes three stone-cut fisherman-style cottages.

They’re currently unused, but planning permission extends to 2023, should you wish to convert them into guest accommodation or rent them as holiday homes.

While the site itself is mature, Bunglasha Lodge was built in 2006, meaning it enjoys plenty of the features you’d associate with a modern build – zoned heating, oak and marble flooring and solid oak internal doors.

You’ll also find a few luxury touches throughout, like the double garage with plumbing for a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, a custom bar in the living room for entertaining, and a dressing room off the master bedroom.

Of the eight bedrooms, three are on the ground level, including the master with patio access.

Upstairs are five more bedrooms, two of which are interconnected, perfect for young kids who want the comfort of a shared space.

One of the eight bedrooms is a lengthy wooden-floored space that could easily be converted into a playroom, games room or study, should you find yourself with too many sleeping areas on your hands.

Location-wise, the three-acre site offers endless privacy, but if you feel the need to connect with the outside world, you’re ten minutes from Killaloe and Ballina, 40 minutes from Ennis, and 45 from Limerick City. Access to Shannon Airport is a handy 50-minute drive, while Cork Airport is just over two hours away.

Bunglasha Lodge is on sale for €1,500,000 from Sherry FitzGerald Country Homes via Daft.ie.
