* Note that the M8 motorway joins with the M7 (Dublin to Limerick road) just west of Portlaoise and goes on to Dublin as the M7.

The N24 road runs from Waterford City to Limerick City. The route from Rosslare to Waterford is the N25 and from Limerick to Galway the N18.

Note also that the M8 is quite new and not all maps have this road shown on them. The M8 follows the route of the old N8 road which, in this area, has been renumbered to the R639 with the exception of a short stretch between junction 10 of the M8 and the Cahir to Tipperary Town road (N24) which has been renumbered to N24. Due to a new by-pass on the eastern side of Cahir the N24 no longer passes through the town.

Directions to Ballyboy House

The house is located down a long drive on the south side of the R665 Clogheen to Ardfinnan/Clonmel road. The GPS location and the Ordnance Survey of Ireland grid reference are provided below the menu to the left.

From Cahir take the R668 road in the direction of Clogheen. Turn left where this road meets the R665 at a point just outside Clogheen. You will be travelling in the direction of Ardfinnan and Clonmel. After about 1.4km turn right at a crossroads (there is a sign for the house at this point). This right turn is actually the drive to the house—it is not a through road.

From Clonmel take the R665 towards Ardfinnan and Clogheen. Pass through Ardfinnan and after 5 to 6km turn left at a crossroads (there is a sign for the house at this point). This left turn is actually the drive to the house—it is not a through road.

From Mitchelstown and Ballyporeen follow the R665 in an easterly direction towards Clogheen. Pass through the town in the direction of Ardfinnan and Clonmel. Just outside Clogheen ignore a turning on the left towards Cahir (the R668) and continue along the R665 towards Ardfinnan for 1.4km from the Cahir junction and turn right at a crossroads (there is a sign for the house at this point). This right turn is actually the drive to the house—it is not a through road.

From Lismore follow the R668 road over the 'Vee' pass to Clogheen—a lovely drive. In Clogheen turn right at a 'T' junction onto the R665 road towards Ardfinnan and Clonmel. Just outside Clogheen ignore a turning on the left towards Cahir (the R668).

Main Roads, Railways, Airports and Ferry Ports

Clogheen is just a few miles from Cahir which sits at the junction of the main road routes between Dublin and Cork (the M8* motorway) and Rosslare/Waterford and Limerick/Galway (the N24*) so has excellent communication with other parts of the country.

There are railway stations in Tipperary Town, Cahir and Clonmel. Just outside Tipperary Town the Limerick Junction station (actually in Tipperary—despite its name) is a major junction of the main railway lines.
