Would definitely recommend this adorable cottage and will hopefully have a reason to stay again some day.

About the location

BALLYFARNON, COUNTY ROSCOMMON

Sligo 20 miles; Carrick-on-Shannon 13 miles; Roscommon 37 miles.

Ballyfarnon is a small village located in the northern part of County Roscommon. Lying close to the border of County Sligo and County Leitrim, it has good links into both counties. The village is situated on the River Feorish at the foot of Arigna Mountain and has many popular lakes nearby for the keen fishermen amongst you. The old Arigna coal mines that overlook the village are now home to the Arigna Mining Experience which is well worth a visit. Kilronan Castle, dating from the 19th century, is nearby and is now a luxury 5* hotel and a popular wedding venue. Lough Allen situated on the River Shannon is a short drive away and for the more adventurous visit Lough Key with its forest park adventure centre. A short drive will take you on to the Wild Atlantic Way where this amazing scenic coastal drive with its dramatic coastal scenery awaits. For those looking for a slightly livelier scene a day trip to Sligo makes a great day out were you can sample the many shops, pubs and restaurants or discover the coast and beaches of this area (Strandhill and Rosses Point). Ballfarnon is an ideal location for an enjoyable trip to Ireland at any time.
