  • "The house was in a lovely location with great views."

    The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. Overall we had a great time and the only big negative was the cleanliness of the property when we arrived. One of the bedrooms was smelling badly of urine. We spent our first two days cleaning the whole property which isn't what we signed up for and paid for as our holiday.

  • "Just back from a week before Easter Property is very good."

    And a good base for day trips further afield Boyle itself has a few nice pubs and take aways if one prefers not to cook. Or drive further afield to a restaurant. Internet is good as is phone signal, a bonus as was standard of accommodation Looking forward to getting back for another relaxing week. Stephen

    thank you for your informative comments and we look forward to your return visit. Property Owner

About the location


Carrick-on-Shannon 10 miles; Ballymote 13 miles.

The small and lively town of Boyle sits on the border between County Roscommon and County Sligo. Steeped in history, Boyle has had a varied past and features a beautifully preserved 12th century abbey, as well as the grand King House, a restored Georgian mansion in the centre of the town. Lough Key lies just outside Boyle with a superb wooded adventure centre, as well as pretty footpaths around the lakes, which take in the ruins of Rockingham House. Nearby Carrick-on-Shannon, a lovely riverside town, is internationally regarded as an angler's paradise and offers no less than four large fishing lakes within a 6 mile radius. With a wide variety of shops, pubs and restaurants in the town, this is an excellent choice for an Irish holiday.
