The owner has specifically not connected a TV in the property because it encouraged her family to spend time together during their stay there. Board games and books are available. The kitchen is very well equipped especially with a fantastic Brittania cooker to encourage home baking. The grounds are a varied mix of garden with lawn and shrubs, courtyard, flowering raised beds, woodland and wild meadow with young fruit trees. There is a trampoline and a BBQ available. There is plenty of private ground space for use of bikes,scooters, exploring or playing of basketball. A full-size table-tennis table is set up in the stone-shed. More

About the neighbourhood
Ballinamore has numerous festivals interspersed throughout the year, including a fishing festival, family festival, and a Cowboys and Heros Country Music festival. This part of Ireland is very peaceful and tranquil. I love the wonderful sense of stillness as soon as I open the car door, smell the trees and hear nothing but the birds and the gentle breeze. Boat hire is ideal to explore the area along the Shannon waterways.
How to get there
From Dublin Airport (2 hours) > M50 southbound to junction 7 (5 km) > N4 to Longford (120 km) > R198 to Drumlish (10 km) > L1013 to Cloone (13 km) > In Cloone turn right towards Ballinamore > The farmhouse is on the left after 4.5km
