Welcome to Our World 

Galway Southeast - The Easy Shannon Connection

This web site is brought to you by The Galway Southeast Tourism Company now trading as Portumna & District Tourism Online which covers Portumna & District. We are a group of people who provide advertised accommodation listings & booking facility, and info on local activities and entertainment for visitors to our region. Galway South East is a beautiful region located along the shores of Lough Derg and on the River Shannon. With lots to do and see and excellent standards of accommodation, South East Galway has a lot to offer the prospective tourist.

Ireland now enjoys a Tourism Industry which is enviable to our competitors. Some areas which are constantly promoted as the main tourist attractions now suffer from peak season pressure which can lead to frustration for our visitors. However gaining access to information for areas that are not on the traditional tourist trail can be difficult. This is why we invite you to take some time to tour our site and let us introduce you to this unique region of Galway and Lough Derg. All of the accommodation and activity providers are owner operated and are of a very high standard. They will do their best to ensure that you will experience the friendliness and warmth that has become synonymous with the Irish. 

In this wonderful region you can truly get away from it all and experience a different pace of life, and we promise you the only queue you might have to deal with will be the queue for the settling of pints of Guinness down at the local,  however if you want the hustle and bustle of our cities we are only 45 minutes drive from Galway City and are no more than a couple hours drive from many national attractions and large urban centres. We know what we have got to offer our visitors here in this region is special and we are very protective of our environment. We believe in protecting our core values, and sustaining the values that make us the people we are.

Accommodation & Specials
