    “Loved it!”

    We booked a week away for 7 (2adults and 5 kids aged 13, 11, 9, 7 and 3. We were expecting a lovely homely house in a beautiful setting but what we got was so much more. The fire had been lit for us on arrival and the house was so warm. The delightful owners met us with warm smiles and kind hearts and made us feel so welcome. There are so many extras included that are not listed like dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, hand soaps, towels, toilet roll.... I know this sound so trivial but it ...

There are so many extras included that are not listed like dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, hand soaps, towels, toilet roll.... I know this sound so trivial but it makes such a difference when you’re travelling with kids that these things are already taken care of. The grounds are spectacular. It was autumn and the leaves were changing colour and beginning to fall. It was so picturesque. Looking out on the view everyday was a delight. My kids loved playing in the garden which is situated off from the main road so safe for young children. The house itself is so big and was so clean with linens which smelt beautifully. It was evident that the owners are meticulous when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness. The house was so central to all the places we wanted to visit. Arigna mining experience, Foxford Woollen mills, Lough Key Forest, Ballina, Carrowkeel Passage Graves, Carrick on Shannon etc. So many things to see and do. Everyday was a new family adventure. These moments were precious and made even more special knowing that we were returning to Ivy House each evening. Overall we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend it. We will most definitely return to this property to stay again.

BOYLE, COUNTY ROSCOMMON

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.
