The property

A really lovely stone cottage, situated just 10 minutes’ walk from the village of Cootehall, on the banks of County Roscommon’s pretty Boyle River.

Ideal for couples in need of a peaceful break, or a family looking to spend some quality time together, this all ground floor cottage is a perfect touring base for an Irish adventure.

Comfortably-furnished and tastefully-decorated, this homely property comes complete with a kitchen with a dining area, a great space to enjoy a delicious meal with your loved ones, before retiring to the cosy sitting room with a solid fuel stove.

When bedtime beckons, there are three bedrooms, all boasting en-suite shower rooms, whilst a convenient cloakroom and a handy utility complete your holiday home.

When it’s lovely and sunny outside, head out into the lawned garden, stretching round the front and rear of the property and enjoy idyllic countryside views whilst planning tomorrow’s discoveries and relaxing with a cool drink.

There’s also off road parking for three cars and the pretty village of Cootehall boasts a beautiful marina.

For those with an interest in angling, test your skills or enjoy exhilarating water-based activities such as kayaking and windsurfing on the many fantastic lakes and rivers in the surrounding area.

Hop in the car and a short journey will take you to the excellent Lough Key Forest and Activity Park with a beautiful harbour and open parkland.

You can also pay a visit to Carrick-on-Shannon for a leisurely cruise on the river before perusing the plentiful selection shops, pubs and cafes.

An unmissable day out can be had at the Arigna Mining Experience, where you can really appreciate the toils and tribulations of past generations.

Alternatively, head west for 20 minutes to the busy town of Sligo on the ever-popular Wild Atlantic Way, a thriving place made famous by its association with the poet W B Yeats.

For a wonderful adventure spent exploring the excellent north west of Ireland, you couldn’t ask for a better base than this delightful cottage.
