    “The house was in a lovely location with great views.”

    The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Overall we had a great time and the only big negative was the cleanliness of the property when we arrived. One of the bedrooms was smelling badly of urine. We spent our first two days cleaning the whole property which isn't what we signed up for and paid for as our holiday.

About the location

BOYLE, COUNTY ROSCOMMON

Carrick-on-Shannon 10 miles; Ballymote 13 miles.

The small and lively town of Boyle sits on the border between County Roscommon and County Sligo. Steeped in history, Boyle has had a varied past and features a beautifully preserved 12th century abbey, as well as the grand King House, a restored Georgian mansion in the centre of the town. Lough Key lies just outside Boyle with a superb wooded adventure centre, as well as pretty footpaths around the lakes, which take in the ruins of Rockingham House. Nearby Carrick-on-Shannon, a lovely riverside town, is internationally regarded as an angler's paradise and offers no less than four large fishing lakes within a 6 mile radius. With a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants in the town, this is an excellent choice for an Irish holiday.
