Garrykennedy Village

The village is both very beautiful and very accessible from anywhere and especially from Dublin and Cork, less than 2 hours journey on recently completed motorways. From Dublin or Cork, take junction 26 on the M7 Motorway, Nenagh South, head towards Nenagh on the N7, at the first roundabout take the first left onto the N52 Ring Road in the direction of Birr/Borrisokane, keep on the N52 until the next Portroe Roundabout, and take the left turn onto the R494 in the direction of Newtown and Portroe. Garrykennedy is reached by taking a right hand turn, approximately 8 km’s later, at the crossroads in Portroe Village, just past a Texaco Garage/Spar Gleesons’s Supermarket on your left. Nenagh is the closest town, with Limerick City 25kms away.



River Shannon & Lough Derg

Lough Derg is the third largest fresh water lake in Ireland, the lower and biggest lake (13,000 hectares) on the River Shannon and is bordered by 3 counties, Galway, Clare and Tipperary. The Shannon is itself the longest river in the UK and Ireland. Lough Dereg is about 40km in length, and 10km in width at its widest point, but normally about 2 to 3km wide, providing a varied race area, especially where GSC is located. Garrykennedy is 2/3rds of the way down its eastern Tipperary shore.
