The property

Situated directly on the lake shore at Cavetown, just a short drive from the town of Boyle in the County Roscommon is this charming Country Cottage.

A welcoming home, Lakeside Cottage enjoys a tranquil location perfect for a couples break to explore this scenic part of Ireland.

Internally, the property boasts a real character feel with slate flooring, exposed stone walls and original sash windows, make you feel right at home.

Allow the chef of the group to get cooking in the kitchen/diner, equipped with all the necessities for a short break, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a washing machine, so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe.

Sit down for a hearty meal at the dining table, toasting to a quaint Irish getaway as you pop open a bottle of fizz, before retiring the lounge where the TV and woodburning stove calls for a relaxing evening.

The two bedrooms both with neutral furnishings and soft fabrics consists of one double bed with ample fitted wardrobe space, and one small 4ft double bed with a locker.

If you are lucky with the weather, step outside and enjoy a drink on the front porch or take a drink down to the green area and relax as you marvel at the lakeside views.

Five miles away lies the Irish town of Boyle, famous for its annual arts festival which runs for a week in July, while there is also a host of shops, pubs and restaurants to try.

Boyle is also home to the old Boyle Abbey, a 12th century monastery built by the Cistercian order, as well as King House, which was once the home to the King family who amassed tens of thousands of acres of land.

Explore the beauty of the local area by foot, with plenty of scenic spots to enjoy a picnic amidst the company of your loved ones, while a short drive away is the county town of Carrick-on-Shannon, steeped in history with many Irish landmarks including the unusual Costello Chapel, which is believed to be the smallest chapel in Europe.

Those seeking activity can go to the Lough Key Forest and Activity Park, where you can experience the zip-lines in the sky, ride segways, take on a woodland safari and much more.

Lakeside Cottage is a wonderful retreat to this exciting part of Ireland.

About the location


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.
