A cozy 2 bedroom rural cottage with modern conveniences like Wifi.
An ideal place to ‘get away from it all’, where the only call is that of nature beckoning you to explore it. It is an ideal retreat for nature lovers, artists, or a romantic break.

The space

Are you looking for a quiet, relaxing break in the countryside in the West of Ireland? Rustic, but with all modern conveniences? Then look no further!!

The space is a traditionally styled cottage bakery but modernised to make your stay comfortable and welcoming! The sitting room is the heart of this home with wood panelled ceilings and the open fire - heated with turf from our own bog!

There is a large garden with mature trees and lake views in the Garden.

The apartment is next door to local pub, restaurant and shop. Comfortably sleeps 5, master room has double and single bed second room has double bed. Two lakes just a short walk great for fishing or just looking at.

We have broadband but it's more basic than broadband available in the city. There may be animal noises from time to time as the garden backs out onto cattle farm land and its also where our beef in the pub comes from (our next door neighbour is the local butcher).

We have a play are for kids, a bouncy castle, pool table and a table tennis table on site.

Guest access

Full access to the house and garden with private parking. The house is a full separate house. The results is full access to the garden which is fully enclosed and private.

The table tennis, pool table and bouncy castle are in a shared area with the pub next door.

Interaction with guests

James and Eilis (my parents) will be available next door in the Pub or the Shop which opens at 9.00am every morning and closes at pub closing hours between 12 and 1am at night. So you can have as much or as little interaction as you like!

Other things to note

There are two small dogs living in the back garden but they have their own run and are kept in the run when guests stay.

Nice two bedroom house next to a pub and small shop. We didn't get to meet Shane but his mother Eilis was a great host with a lot of tips on things to do in the surrounding area (which has a lot more to offer than the guidebooks would lead you to believe), and we had a great night in the pub next door with the regular guests. The downstairs room smelled a bit of cigarette smoke however, so that's something to take into account if that's a problem for you

Travelled with two kids 4yr & 8 yrs and two adults. Secluded little two bed house beside a shop and pub. Perfect for the kids, swings outside and no bother with them in the pub in the evening even had a bouncy castle, ping pong & pool table in pub to keep them occupied. It was perfect for what we wanted just somewhere to sleep as we were away all day.

Nice quiet rural location, yet Carrick on Shannon only 10/15 minutes drive away. Swing and slide in back garden was great for the children. Very comfortable stay.

The place is homely with everything you need in place. Not modern but we'll taken care of. Dogs were friendly and we were lucky to have a little live music on Saturday night.

Running the cottage is a family affair. I am currently in the USA working so between my Mom Eilis, my Dad James and my Sister Caitriona all chip to in keep the holiday home running!!

This cottage is an old Bakery which is attached to my families home place which has been a Pub and Shop for well over 200 years!! We decided to use it as a holiday home to generate income to put my sister through college.

We've added a few things to the cottage that we couldn't live without - WiFi, Books, warm fire and Tv/Dvd!!
