The property

Located at the base of Keshcorran Mountain, this spacious detached farmhouse enjoys splendid views of the Caves of Keash above. Tucked away in the peaceful village of Keash, 4 miles from the market town of Ballymote, with a superb mix of traditional and contemporary style, the farmhouse offers modern facilities and a tastefully decorated interior. Whip up delicious home-cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen and relax as a family in the comfortable dining area. After a day spent exploring this wonderful area, chilly evenings can be spent in the cosy sitting room in front of the warming woodburner while you plan your next days’ adventures. The four bedrooms are bright and welcoming and in one of the double bedrooms, step through the French doors onto the balcony where you can take a minute to just appreciate the idyllic views. In Keash village you can visit the Roman Catholic Church and stop for a drink or a spot of Sunday lunch in the friendly local pub. A short walk from the farmhouse takes you to the ancient Caves of Keash, where you can lose a day in the legends of the caves, where the views reach out for miles over the open countryside. Visit the local town of Ballymote, just a few miles from the farmhouse, where you will find a variety of shops, pubs and places to eat and the whole area is surrounded by beautiful countryside, a haven for walkers and cyclists. Lough na Leibe offers wonderful trout fishing oppurtunities run by the Ballymote Angling Club and any golfers in the party can while the day away at Ballymote Golf Course, one of the favourite courses in Connaught! The Wild Atlantic Way is within easy reach of the farmhouse, with the cultural city of Sligo, just a 20 minute drive away, promising miles of beautiful sandy beaches, traditional pubs and gourmet eateries. With the delights of this wonderful region on your doorstep, this farmhouse really is the perfect choice for family and friends alike.
