    We stayed in Ivy House for Christmas, and we couldn’t ask for a better experience. This comfortable , spacious and well equipped house provided us with a “home from home” experience, and helped make our Christmas a special one. The house is well laid out , warm, and the log burner fire was well used! The Christmas tree and decorations made the house a lovely festive setting for our family.Everything we could possibly need was provided, and the house was spotless. The location was ideal, a few minutes drive from Ballinafad and Boyle, and we managed a few walks in the beautiful Forest Park and the Caves of Keash. Thank you to Liz and Bernard for being such gracious hosts, we look forward to a return visit!

About the location

BOYLE, COUNTY ROSCOMMON

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

The small and lively village 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.
