We had a fantastic time in this property over our 2 night stay. The owner was fantastic to work with, so pleasant and helpful. Amazed at how big the house was and the games room was an added bonus. We had great fun with the horses and donkeys. One of which did not like to be called 'Ned'. We will recommend this home highly to our family and friends. A great weekend was had. Many Thanks.

This is our 4th time back at this wonderful retreat. We love the lake and the fishing. Have been teaching my young son to fish and he , like myself is really enjoying it. Recommend a visit to Lough Gara Stables and Country Pursuits. We all had great fun out there and indeed have been back several times. The children especially enjoyed feeding the horses Tammy and Stanley. They walked with us to the lake every morning.

A spacious house, beautifully presented with all the facilities one would expect. The views were stunning, a gem for a rural relaxing break!

Beautiful house in a great location. The owner was friendly and welcoming. We loved our stay and will definitely be back. The children loved the games room and walking down to see the pony and donkeys.
Caroline, June 2017
Very spacious great for a big group and games room a bonus.
Liz, June 2017
It was lovely that the beds were all made up on arrival and a welcoming bottle of wine waiting for us, along with complementary tea, coffee, milk and chocolate. The house is really private, peaceful and spacious with great parking facilities, fabulous views and handy access to Boyle and the activities at Lough Key. 3 or 4 bedrooms are en-suite which is a really bonus for a mixed group. We were on a family trip rather than a tourist visit, so it was a perfect location for us visiting family and friends in Roscommon and Leitrim.
Inez, June 2017
Views, house is very spacious, on lake, very peaceful and quiet.
David Dineen, June 2017

Superb location with fabulous views. The area was quite remote but ideal for a quiet relaxing break. We enjoyed sightseeing and fishing. The lough key forrest walk was excellent. Moorings - the fool was very good but they only cooked Fri, Sat, Sun. Would recommend this because it was such a lovely location and very spacious.

The area was quite remote but ideal for a quiet and relaxing break. We enjoyed sightseeing and fishing. The Lough Key Forest walk was excellent.The nearest pub was the Moorings - the food was very good, but they only cooked Friday, Saturday, Sunday. We enjoyed some lovely food at McDermotts, which was about 4-5 miles away on the N4.
