The property

This spacious and homely ground floor cottage is location on the edge of the village of Ballinamuck, close to the County Leitrim border in County Longford.

Set on the owner’s land, next to another welcoming holiday home, which is available to book to accommodate large groups, this is a lovely location where you can relax amongst some charming countryside and take a break away from the bustle of daily life.

Rose Cottage offers comfortable accommodation, including two homely bedrooms, both benefiting from an en-suite shower room for added comfort during your stay.

The spacious living area is bright and open plan with a cosy sitting area at one end, the kitchen at the other and the dining space set beside the big bay window, offering lovely country views across the surrounding scenery.

This means that everyone can come together and discuss their adventures, or prepare tomorrow’s plans whilst a tasty family meal is being put together.

To the front of the property is a large, well-kept lawned area, shared with the owners, where you can sit with a picnic on a sunny summer’s day.

The small village of Ballinamuck has everything you’ll need with its friendly local bar, convenience store and interesting history.

With beautiful countryside surrounding this welcoming holiday home, days out spent walking and cycling will not be a disappointment in this stunning location.

The owner is also a keen angler, and with two boats at your disposal, is happy to arrange a fishing trip for you to one of the many nearby loughs, a certain way to add a relaxing element to your break.

The bustling, riverside town of Carrick-on-Shannon is just over half an hour’s drive away, where you can take a cruise upon the River Shannon, relax in one of its excellent restaurants or enjoy the lively music and arts culture that the town enjoys.

With plenty of things to see and do within very each reach, including horse trekking, watersports and scenic drives, not to mention a trip to one of the surrounding golf courses, the whole family is sure to be delighted with this location.

Rose Cottage is a spacious and welcoming holiday home in a great position for seeing the many nearby sights.

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!
