The property

This lovely detached cottage in Kilmore is just six miles from Carrick-on-Shannon in County Roscommon. Set in the Irish countryside, with beautiful views and plenty of charm, this cottage is ideal for those who love the outdoors and like walking in the countryside with perhaps a spot of fishing thrown in. Set all on the ground floor, on entering the cottage you will find a well-equipped kitchen with a solid fuel stove to your right, where you can prepare sumptuous meals to be enjoyed in the dining room. Adjourn to the cosy sitting room, which has another stove, perfect for warming up after a long day exploring and planning activities for the following day. There are three lovely bedrooms, one of which is a family room with an en-suite shower. The external door in the kitchen opens up to the patio area at the rear of the property, where you will find a barbecue and a picnic bench waiting to be used. On long summer evenings sit on the picnic bench in the garden, an excellent spot to enjoy a drink and reminisce about the day’s activities, whilst the children run around and enjoy themselves. Carrick-on-Shannon is just a short drive from the cottage, where you can appreciate the history of the town including the ruins of Carrick Castle. If you are feeling energetic, enjoy a round at the Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club, or enjoy a leisurely cruise on Moon River. Visit the lively Carrick Water Music Festival which is held every July, with plenty to do to keep everybody occupied. For a great day out, head to Lough Key Forest Park and try out the Zipit treetop ropes adventure course, or visit the Georgian manor house of King House, full of life-size historical figures and family activities. Further afield, you can explore the counties of Leitrim and Sligo with their many attractions, making the cottage a fantastic base for exploring the charm of Ireland's countryside and stunning lakes and mountains, which are waiting to be explored. A great cottage for all the family to enjoy.
