  • "A beautiful cottage in a stunning lakeside setting."

    It was very well equipped and the owners were ever so kind and helpful to us. It was unusual weather ie hot and sunny everyday and so we were swimming daily in the warm clean water - just 600 metres from the cottage to an easy access point

  • "This traditional Irish cottage has been lovingly renovated to provide every modern convenience, with beautiful views over Cavetown Lake and within a short driving distance of either Carrick or Boyle."

    The big lake is beautiful, but fishing it is hard going in the extreme. Try the smaller lake nearby or the Boyle River.

  • "Everything about this property has the feeling of being well considered, which makes it feel like a home from home."

    Perhaps even better! The host, Irene, had left a little welcome hamper, which was greatly appreciated and unexpected. There was also tea, coffee, some spices etc in the cupboard, so lovely. There was plenty of wood available for the stoves, which was again, so welcome, as the weather when we stayed was dreadful. However, the cottage was so comfortable that we only noticed the terrible weather when we looked out the windows. During our stay we discovered lots of attractions which were a delight to visit. We have NO hesitation in recommending this property and when time allows, we hope to return.

  • "Irene is a superb host."

    Her attention to detail combined with some beautiful touches makes Lakeside Cottage a true home a way from home. The hamper we received was so generous and thoughtful for our arrival and there was plenty of wood there to keep the fires going. The house is so comfortable and inviting and the chrome cast available meant we could watch Netflix and our favourite movies. The cottage is located in a very peaceful and tranquil place with lovely views at sunrise and sunset. If you want some quality rest and recuperation I couldn’t recommend anywhere more suitable. A lovely 6km walk around the lake was so invigorating and many more walks to do. Roscommon was never on our list of places to go but after this visit it’s now one of the hidden gems especially with the beautiful surroundings and sense of serenity and solitude. Carrick on Shannon is 20 mins drive and we had a very friendly taxi driver who was inexpensive. Boyle is also nearby with some nice places to visit. Everyone we met on our walks were so friendly and we can’t wait to return sometime soon. Ed and Callum

  • "Amazing property in a stunning location Could not fault anything."

    All furnishings are excellent quality and suit the property perfectly with all decor tastefully done with nice touches without over doing it. Comfortable beds and sofas. Beautiful isolation just 5 minutes from everything you need, perfect. The lake with the wild life is a stunning view and we had bad weather I am sure it would be off the scale on sunny days. Irene was excellent and always checking if all was alright. Would definitely stay again. Kevin

  • "Lakeside cottage is a gem, quiet and relatively remote yet within easy reach by car of amenities."

    Immediately it has a home from home feel, and no wonder, as the owners do indeed use it themselves at times. Thus they generously entrust many little personal extras to their guests which adds that extra special touch. The lake views - complete with swans gliding by - are beautiful even in the rain! Altogether a class offering.

    Firstly, it is spotless and there is absolutely everything you need. Irene had also left us the most generous welcome basket with wine, crackers, crisps etc. Our week here was ideal, totally relaxed and cosy evenings reading by the warmth of a log burning stove. We will definitely be back. Thank you Irene. Davy and Debbie

Inside the cottage was extremely comfortable and immaculately clean , everything had been thought of and we needed for nothing. A fabulous break , just wish we had longer. We will definitely return very soon and stay longer. We would highly recommend the cottage.

  • "A beautifully equipped and comfortable cottage in a superb location overlooking the Lake."

    Every assistance, facility and provision you can think of is provided along with that special sense of local hospitality and welcome which makes a holiday in Ireland so delightful. The coast and beaches at Sligo are in easy reach and the sights and features of the Shannon River and its towns most interesting. Good and relatively easy coarse fishing on the Shannon, more challenging on the lakes. We enjoyed the splendid variety of the Waterfront restaurant at Cootehall and the different kind of charm of the local pub! Wonderful holiday with many thanks to Irene for her kindness and hospitality.
