  • "I am very happy with the stay in Rose Cottage but there is a problem regards information given on booking."

    Com. When I was making a booking it said that it`s going to be set “1.1 km from The Cathedral Church of St Mel Longford in Longford” and 700m for Centre, but that’s not true. The true location is Ballinamuck 17km from the actual location that I was not willing to stay. It leaded to a situation that I needed to bear the cost of renting a car for 240€. I demand a refund for 240€ for renting the car.

    If you wish to discuss or elaborate more on the issues raised, please feel free to contact the Sykes office on the details below, quoting your booking reference number and any other information that may assist us in providing the best possible outcome and customer service. 01244 345 700 Lines are open 7 days a week from 9am until 7pm Property Owner

  • "We spent a week in the two bedroom, two bathroom Rose cottage in October of 2018."

    Overall the place was what we expected. My wife found the beds too hard. The heat is controlled by a central timer and as we kept odd hours the place was chilly at times. The kitchen was well equipped and suited our needs well. The owner was very nice and helpful.

About the location


Aughnacliffe 6 miles; Newtownforbes 9.5 miles; Longford 12 miles; Cavan 16 miles; Carrick-on-Shannon 25.5 miles.

The historic village of Ballinamuck is situated in the north of County Longford, close to the borders of Leitrim and Cavan. Literally translated to ‘mouth of the ford of the pig’, Ballinamuck is a wonderful area to discover the mass of farmland, lakes, low lying hills and pristine boglands of North Longford. Ballinamuck was once the site of the Battle of Ballinamuck and there is a local heritage centre which houses an interesting exhibition of the events of the battle. The centre also offers guidance on local walks, which retrace the steps of those who fought during the battle. Fishing, cycling and walking are very popular in this region, with endless miles of unspoilt countryside to discover and explore. The local pub is an old thatch pub with another large pub where you can have a nice evening meal also. The village has a large play area for kids and a basketball court also. Just a short drive away is the vibrant town of Longford and the impressive St Mel’s Cathedral, offering a superbly central base for touring the heart of the country, with Dublin, Galway, Sligo, Enniskillen and Mayo, at most, two hours away!
