The property

This comfortable and traditionally-decorated, semi-detached cottage sits just a few minutes’ stroll from the heart of Ballaghaderreen, County Roscommon. Found within 15 minutes’ drive of Knock Airport, and offering homely holiday accommodation, Deodonne provides a very well-located base for discovering the beautiful north west of Ireland. With a warm and welcoming atmosphere supplied by the thoughtful, comfortable décor, this delightful cottage is a great choice for friends and families to get together in this popular area. There are four bedrooms offering a range of sleeping accommodation to suit almost any party, including a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite shower room, accessed via the kitchen, along with three further rooms on the first floor sharing a family bathroom. The kitchen is suitably equipped and comes with all the mod cons, making it a wonderful place to create culinary delights! Share stories over dinner in the small dining area in the kitchen or head to the separate dining room for a more formal affair. The sitting room offers a cosy place to curl up at the close of a long day, and has wide sliding door accessing the spacious patio and garden. On sunny occasions, why not take a step outside, make the most of the country views and relax log into the evening whilst preparing tomorrow’s escapades? The busy cathedral town of Ballaghaderreen lies just a few miles from the border with County Mayo, making it an excellent base for those looking to tour this wonderful area, and is home to an array of amenities. Surrounded by loughs, the Lung River and sweeping countryside, this is an outdoor-adventurer’s paradise, whether you’re seeking scenic walks, bike rides, fishing, golf or more. There are lots of wonderful things to see and do nearby, with Ballaghaderreen providing a central base to many of the Northwest’s attractions. Take day trips to the Foxford Woollen Mills, Lough Key Forest Park, Strokestown House and Gardens, The Irish Famine Museum, or even the pretty town of Westport, which sits in the stunning Clew Bay. The National Museum of Country Life, Castlebar and Achill Island are all within easy touring distance and worthy of a day trip. The popular Wild Atlantic Way can also be enjoyed for a day trip, with its sweeping coastal scenery offering majestic, craggy cliffs, roaring waves, hidden beaches, coves and much more. There’s beautiful seafood to enjoy on the coast, ancient islands to uncover and many miles of coastal roads, with something new to spot at every turn. For a rich and varied break, with a comfortable and homely cottage to welcome you home, Deodonne is an excellent choice.
