The property

Carrigallen 4 miles.

his charming, detached cottage sits in a lovely, elevated position, boasting inviting views of the surrounding greenery, located near the village of Carrigallen, Co.


This delightful cottage near Carrigallen, dating from 1890, offers friends and families a traditional holiday base, retaining many character features of its original build as a village schoolhouse, with the high windows adding to the light and bright atmosphere.

Set across the ground and first floors, guests will find four comfortable bedrooms at this Carrigallen cottage, with two boasting en-suite shower rooms, along with a separate family bathroom featuring a charming roll top bath.

A wonderful open fire warms the spacious sitting room, and the sociable, well-equipped kitchen with dining area is made cosy with the help of a woodburner.

The garden, with large lawn and raised decking, provides the perfect place to relax, enjoy a home-cooked alfresco meal together and delight in the beautiful, far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside.

Take a walk or a bike ride or enjoy a pleasant drive along the winding lanes to reach the village of Carrigallen, where you will find a selection of traditional pubs and shops.

The wonderful Corn Mill Theatre and arts centre offers both professional and amateur productions and entertaining performances for a delightful evening.

Alternatively, the scenic town of Arvagh can be easily reached too.

A little further afield the Arigna Mining experience is well worth a visit or perhaps step back in time to experience life in a World War One trench at the Cavan County Museum.

The hundreds of loughs scattered across this stunning region are brimming with stock, meaning fishing enthusiasts need not venture far, and the renowned River Shannon offers excellent course and game fishing, along with some wonderful boat trips.

Venture north to discover the beautiful Dartry Mountains or enjoy a day trip in Cavan, Longford or Belturbet.

Book this quirky Carrigallen cottage for your next holiday in County Leitrim and you won't be disappointed.
