    “This Cottage is located in Rural Ireland at its best.”

    A complete break from normal life. Although its in an isolated area, its only a short drive to the nearest towns of Ballygar and Mountpellew (about 15mins) And an easy 40 min drive to Roscommon town. ...

    A complete break from normal life. Although its in an isolated area, its only a short drive to the nearest towns of Ballygar and Mountpellew (about 15mins) And an easy 40 min drive to Roscommon town. The Cottage its self exceeds expectations. Extremely well restored traditional building and decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. You have everything you need in the cottage for a comfortable, luxury break away. The quality of this accommodation would match any luxury hotel room. The Hosts were very welcoming, friendly and were willing to help if anything was required. We had such a lovely time here , we will be back for another stay.
