Relax, Unwind and Explore
Nestled in the village of Terryglass – a short stroll from the banks of Lough Derg, where the River Shannon meets the mountains of Tipperary – you will find River Run House & Cottages.
A distinctive country house and three pretty cottages in one and a half acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, right in the centre of the village. The location couldn’t be better! If relaxation is on your mind or if water sports float your boat – you will find it right here.
Our accommodation has undergone an expansive, stylish refurbishment of the highest standard to create a unique rural destination offering our guests the perfect location for a weekend getaway or a week-long staycation.
Our 4/5* luxury self-catering accommodation is a location where small or large groups can gather to celebrate an occasion or hold an event. The three beautiful cottages can accommodate four guests each while our two spacious apartments can accommodate up to six guests.
The stunning main house incorporates the two apartments and can be configured to accommodate up to 18 guests.
The main kitchen will suit all your culinary needs and all guests can dine together in the Orangerie. There are three further reception rooms – the library has a large smart TV to occupy little ones and older ones too – particularly during the rugby season or on a chilly evening. Log burning stoves add a cosy glow adding to the ‘home from home’ atmosphere.
On warmer evenings – our large decking area to the rear of the main house is all ready for your arrival, overlooking our heritage apple trees – with a path to our new games room (The Hen House) where battles can commence over the foosball and pool tables. The Hen House is available to all guests staying at the River Run.

The Irish name for Terryglass is Tír Dhá Glas and means ‘land of the two streams’. The village is located on the R493 regional road on the north-eastern shore of Lough Derg near where the River Shannon enters the Lough. It is a civil parish in the historical barony of Ormond Lower. Terryglass won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition in 1983 and 1997, followed by Tipperary’s Tidiest Village in 2019. More recently, the village won the Pride of Place Award in 2020 – this award recognises improvements made by local communities to create civic pride in their area. This competition focuses on people coming together to shape, change and enjoy all that is good about their area.
There are two fabulous atmospheric pubs right across the road from the River Run (Paddy’s Bar and The Derg Inn) – both offering delicious food and everything from creamy pints of Guinness to the latest Gin infusions. It is only a five minute stroll to Terryglass Quay where you will find communal BBQ areas and a children’s playground as well as local and visiting boats. There is a small village store beside The Derg Inn for all daily essentials. The village of Portumna in a ten minute drive away and the village of Borrisokane is also ten minutes away.
