The property

This lovely holiday cottage is one of two properties, set amongst an acre of the owner’s very well-kept shared garden, on the outskirts of Ballinamuck, County Longford.

Situated close to the border with County Leitrim, this comfortable cottage offers well-equipped, sociable accommodation, ideal for a holiday with friends and family.

On the ground floor is a spacious open plan living area providing a welcoming place to gather together, discuss your day over dinner and share plans for tomorrow’s adventures.

Upstairs are three comfy bedrooms including an en-suite family room, as well as a family shower room.

The shared grounds provide a wonderful spot where you can enjoy the late afternoon sunshine, or set yourself up for the day with breakfast on the patio.

The owner is a keen angler, and with two boats at his disposal, is happy to take you out on a fishing trip to one of the many local lakes.

Ballinamuck has a small range of amenities and is just a short walk from your charming country cottage, whilst Ballinamuck Battle Heritage Centre tells the tale of this ancient village.

The whole area is full of attractive scenery dotted with tranquil lakes and low-lying hills, whilst the more active can discover plentiful walks and cycling routes that can be found practically from the front door.

Spend the day in Carrick on Shannon, just over half an hour’s drive away, with its vibrant music and arts scene and busy marina where you’ll find excellent restaurants.

This welcoming holiday cottage promises a perfect base for an active getaway, with plentiful activities and attractions to suit all ages within easy reach, including horse riding, golf, archery and a whole range of watersports to enjoy.

This is a fantastic choice for your Irish holiday, whether you’re seeking a fishing, walking or touring holiday in this excellent county, or simply a break away from the bustle of daily life.

About the location


Aughnacliffe 6 miles; Newtownforbes 9.5 miles; Longford 12 miles; Cavan 16 miles; Carrick-on-Shannon 25.5 miles.

The historic village of Ballinamuck is situated in the north of County Longford, close to the borders of Leitrim and Cavan. Literally translated to ‘mouth of the ford of the pig’, Ballinamuck is a wonderful area to discover the mass of farmland, lakes, low lying hills and pristine boglands of North Longford. Ballinamuck was once the site of the Battle of Ballinamuck and there is a local heritage centre which houses an interesting exhibition of the events of the battle. The centre also offers guidance on local walks, which retrace the steps of those who fought during the battle. Fishing, cycling and walking are very popular in this region, with endless miles of unspoilt countryside to discover and explore. The local pub is an old thatch pub with another large pub where you can have a nice evening meal also. The village has a large play area for kids and a basketball court also. Just a short drive away is the vibrant town of Longford and the impressive St Mel’s Cathedral, offering a superbly central base for touring the heart of the country, with Dublin, Galway, Sligo, Enniskillen and Mayo, at most, two hours away!
