  • "A real gem of a holiday home."

    The inspired landscaping enhances what Mother nature gave us. The cottage itself is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Thanks to Hazel and Michael for their warm Roscommon welcome.

  • "Waters Edge cottage was the most amazing base for our Ireland holiday."

    It is above and beyond what we expected and situated in a beautiful, pristine location with direct jetty to the lake. Ideal for anglers. Michael was very hospitable and friendly when we arrived, leaving goodies and fresh basic food in the fridge. Everything we needed was there. We can highly recommend this lovely place.

  • "Fantastic, comfortable cottage with beautiful lake views."

    Private jetty in front of house was great and I left my boat there all week, since the pike fishing was so good! Note: no petrol engines allowed on lake, so electric motor or oars only. The attached garage was good for storing fishing/boat gear.

  • "Absolutely gorgeous location, beautiful cottage, stunning views, Michael the owner met us and really nice guy."

    Place was immaculately clean, very well equipped and am so staying there again. If your into fishing there's a spot right outside the cottage. If your into views they are amazing and so well located to tour so many beautiful places in the West of Ireland, really cannot recommend this cottage enough.

  • "We were made very welcome by the owner (Michael) who left us some treats in the fridge, as well as basics like milk."

    We loved the sunny room at the front with views over the lough. The cottage was well located for places to visit. We would recommend Boyle Abbey and Kings House in Boyle (which had a nice cafe in the courtyard outside), plus Carrick-on-Shannon. If interested in heritage, visit Rathcroghan Museum and Archaeological Trail, plus Strokestown Park House and the National Famine Museum (also with a good cafe).

  • "Lovely place to stay with lots to do around the area."

    Cottage was very comfortable and even though the weather was not brilliant, we got out and about. the Great crested grebe on the lough were lovely to see as well as lots of mallard with ducklings. Michael was generous and helpful on our arrival. Also many thanks to Hazel who was so friendly and welcoming.

The property

Boyle 5.1 miles.

The Water's Edge is a whitewashed, detached cottage sitting next to Cavetown Lough in Glooria near Boyle, County Roscommon.

Ideal for a family of six looking for a relaxing break in this part of Ireland, the cottage not only enjoys views of the lough from the front rooms, but offers convenient, ground-floor accommodation throughout.

Upon arrival, you'll be pleased to find a gravelled driveway, where you can park up and easily unload your belongings into your new home-from-home.

Venture inside to be welcomed by the flickering flames of the woodburning stove and gas fire; especially ideal during the chillier months!

After a busy day, kick back and relax on the plush sofa and armchair in front of the TV with your favourite tipple in hand.

After unwinding for a bit, head to the kitchen, a well-equipped area with everything you need for a self-catering holiday, including a handy dishwasher; perfect for a quick post-dinner clean-up!

When the chef of the group has fixed up a tasty meal, enjoy it around the dining table whilst you marvel at those dreamy views of the lough.

As the day comes to an end, head to the back of the cottage to find three well-furnished bedrooms, two of which are doubles, with one of these enjoying lough views and access to an en-suite wet room, whilst the latter bedroom is a spacious twin room.

The family shower room is close-by, a contemporary space enjoying marble tiling throughout.

Try your hand at angling on Cavetown Lough, where the likes of perch, roach, pike and bream can be found, or simply embark on a leisurely stroll around the serene waters.

Travel a short distance into Boyle, a small but bustling town offering a range of fantastic amenities, alongside the renowned historic site of Boyle Abbey and the fascinating King House Historical & Cultural Centre; the town is also home to a regular farmers market, perfect for purchasing local produce!

Head to Carrick-on-Shannon, a riverside town which is home to Butler's Marina, where you can partake in watersports, along with the ancient landmark of the Costello Memorial Chapel and the quaint green of the River Front Amenity Park.

The area hosts plenty of other attractions to see, such as the breathtaking Strokestown Park House with its gardens, the intriguing Arigna Mining Experience and the Lough Key Forest & Activity Park; you'll rarely lack things to do here!

Choose The Water's Edge for an idyllic stay with those who mean most.
