The property

A bright comfortable cottage near Aughnacliffe, a small village in County Longford, less than half an hour’s drive from the county town itself. The cottage is set solely over the ground floor, meaning those who struggle with steps can get around with ease. It also creates a nice social base for friends and families holidaying together in this beautiful part of the world! There are three welcoming bedrooms, two with twin beds and one master bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite wet room-style shower room. There is also a family bathroom. The open plan living area is light and spacious, offering somewhere for cooking, preparing a picnic whilst planning the day’s excursions, or relaxing with your feet up and enjoying the beautiful, luscious country views from large picture windows that encircle the seating area. The separate sitting room has an open fire so when the weather is dreary, you can stay cosy and warm after a long day out walking and exploring. There is a lawn to side of the cottage where the children can run around and play, and you can enjoy the sunshine and admire the wonderful Longford countryside and views which stretch to Lough Gowna. Surrounded by such picturesque scenery, the cottage is certainly a wonderful choice for a relaxing break in the Irish country! The village of Aughnacliffe has two pubs and a local shop where you can pick up your morning paper and essentials, and Leebeen Park offers a brilliant children’s playground! You can take a stroll around the lough or move on to Lough Gowna and enjoy fishing, where you will find good stocks of Pike. There are lots of walking opportunities nearby and Dublin is less than a two-hour drive away, a city that is definitely worth exploring for the day! Hilltop Bungalow is a fantastic holiday base for those visiting County Longford, and exploring the north of Southern Ireland.
