    “Our family of 5 had a fab time at Ard Cuillean (two adults, 8, 12 and 18 year olds).”

    We were truly gobsmacked when we pulled in and realised we were literally waterfront. We knew we had a slip on the property, but didn't realise the waterfront was literally on our doorstep. The house itself looked smaller than expected from the exterior but we needn't have worried. It is huge inside thanks to generous high ceilings! And all of the bedrooms were amply sized. The beds were supremely comfy, and the house was stocked with far more than anywhere else we've ever stayed: enough pots, ...

    We were truly gobsmacked when we pulled in and realised we were literally waterfront. We knew we had a slip on the property, but didn't realise the waterfront was literally on our doorstep. The house itself looked smaller than expected from the exterior but we needn't have worried. It is huge inside thanks to generous high ceilings! And all of the bedrooms were amply sized. The beds were supremely comfy, and the house was stocked with far more than anywhere else we've ever stayed: enough pots, pans, and baking dishes to make meals for a large group easily; enough plates, glasses, cups, bowls and cutlery to host a banquet; electric kettle and washer and tumble dryer; and tons of DVDs and games for the kids. They loved the foosball/pool tables upstairs, too, in the family room. Even 24 hours without power thanks to a huge regional storm didn't dampen the stay. We loved it, enjoyed multiple outings on our canoe we brought, and will definitely be back. Just be prepared for a relaxed, remote experience or roadtrips to activities, because Drumshambo is a very small village with bare necessities, but not much going on. Can highly recommend the guided kayaking and paddleboarding on offer from the Drumshambo activity centre. Super affordable, and the leaders did a great job engaging with a group of about 20 participants and keeping an eye on everyone, entertaining, encouraging the little ones, and keeping everyone safe. And there's a great canal-side bike trail nearby that leads from Drumbshambo to a great wee pub in Battlebridge (about 9 miles roundtrip).

The property

Ballinagleragh 2 miles.

Situated on the shores of the sprawling Lough Allen, near the small village of Ballinagleragh in County Leitrim, is this family-friendly log cabin.

This delightful wooden holiday property has been lovingly decorated and furnished to offer guests a home away from home, ideal for groups seeking a peaceful getaway in one of Ireland’s most scenic and undiscovered counties.

Boasting a charming fitted kitchen, which comes well equipped for all your culinary needs, you’ll also find a dining area where you can gather together for plenty of sociable evenings with your loved ones.

After a day spent on the lake, why not relax and unwind in the spacious sitting room, perfect for all the family with its air hockey table and pool table?

Three comfortable bedrooms complete the accommodation including an en-suite master bedroom and a family room with two sets of bunk beds to cater for a variety of groups.

To the front of the cottage, guests can enjoy private and direct access to Lough Allen, and the property has its own slipway into the lake.

This vast stretch of water is not only a paradise for anglers, both professional and amateur, but is a wonderful location to sample the variety of watersports available nearby at the local outdoor pursuits centre.

The small village of Ballinagleara is home to two shops and pubs and is surrounded by luscious green countryside with plenty of quiet lanes and rural roads to explore either by bike or on foot.

If you fancy the night off from cooking then head to Gables restaurant nearby.

Moorlands Horse Riding centre is just a short drive away, as are the Marble Arch Caves for sublime scenery.

Further afield is the bustling town of Carrick-on-Shannon, home to a plethora of delicious eateries, relaxing coffee shops and traditional pubs.

Often referred to as Ireland’s ‘cruising capital’, it would be a shame to miss a boat trip along the Shannon to soak up the stunning scenery.

Other popular attractions include Boyle Abbey, Lough Key Forest and Activity Park for zip-wiring, high forest adventure and lovely walks, along with the stunning sandy beaches that stretch along the coast of County Sligo.

A truly welcoming holiday cottage, perfect for all the family.

About the location

BALLINAGLERA, COUNTY LEITRIM

Drumshanbo 8 miles; Carrick-on-Shannon 16 miles; Sligo 28 miles.

The small village of Ballinaglera lies on the shores of Lough Allen in County Leitrim. The village is served by two shops and two pubs but the main attraction has to be the Lough, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which boasts a plentiful supply of fish year all year round and hosts many annual fishing contests. Ballinaglera has its own outdoor adventure centre with activities such as canoeing, kayaking and wind-surfing available. There are also numerous opportunities for mountain biking and walking in this scenic part of Ireland. Leitrim has a rich mining history with the last mine closing in 1990. The countryside was also inspiration for the poet William Butler Yeats with the beautiful Glencar waterfall mentioned in his poem, The Stolen Child. Further afield, you will find the town of Drumshanbo, which hosts regular music festivals and has a plethora of shops and pubs. The towns of Sligo, Enniskillen and Carrick-on-Shannon are within easy reach as well making Ballinaglera a perfect location for all the family.

Note: Property sleeps max. 8 adults as single top bunks are suitable for teenagers/children only.
