    “Lovely little cottage with wonderful views.”

    There were three horses in the stables and the kids could go to pet them, which they loved. It would have been good to know that there was no horse riding possible. Being advertised as a ranch and tuition centre, we thought there was a chance of some horse riding. Besides that Máire was lovely, welcoming and responsive to all our requests. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and Máire was clearly taking great care to adhere to COVID 19 guidelines. It is close enough to Carriick-on ...

It is close enough to Carriick-on Shannon, Lough Key, Boyle and other places of interest.

About the property

A country residence on a small family run farm, Kilronan Ranch is situated along a quiet lane-way surrounded by mountain views in the picturesque hamlet of Knockvicar.

This farm stay holiday offers cosy, compact accommodation, ideal for a peaceful break in the great outdoors where you will be only minutes from meandering rivers and lakes. With its fully-fitted kitchen and open plan dining and living area, this County Roscommon annexe will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Set within the grounds of the owners family home, with lawned gardens and adjoining stables where horses look out across the valley from their half-door boxes or graze the nearby paddocks, this farm stay is one to be remembered.

Travel 2km to Knockvicar, and its sister village Cootehall, both straddling the Boyle River, and savour the tranquillity. Enjoy woodland and lake walks at nearby Forest Park with its adventure trails and relaxing café on the shores of Lough Key.

Travel north to the Arigna Mining Experience and understand the trials and tribulations of past generations as they toiled underground.

Visit the neighbouring bustling town of Carrick-On-Shannon, take a boat trip on the renowned River Shannon and relax in the many coffee shops and restaurants.

Take a day trip to Sligo town, on the Wild Atlantic Way, the land of hearts' desire and home to the wonderful poet William B Yeats is a must while you languish at Kilronan Ranch.

Choose from the many stunning beaches at Strandhill, Rosses Point and Mullaghmore further north and feel the Atlantic breeze on your face.

Enjoy a relaxing spa day followed by afternoon tea in the nearby stunning Kilronan Castle.

Afterwards, enjoy a drink in Clancy’s Pub renowned for its Irish music, great hospitality and fine beer and wine.
