Allow the chef of the group to get cooking in the kitchen/diner, equipped with all the necessities for a short break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a washing machine, so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe.

The two bedrooms both with neutral furnishings and soft fabrics consists of one double bed with ample fitted wardrobe space, and one small 4ft double bed with a locker.

If you are lucky with the weather, step outside and enjoy a drink on the front porch or take a drink down to the green area and relax as you marvel at the lakeside views.

Boyle is also home to the old Boyle Abbey, a 12th century monastery built by the Cistercian order, as well as King House, which was once the home to the King family who amassed tens of thousands of acres of land.

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.
