Description of the Lecarrow vacation cottage rental
Are you ready to take a break from your hectic life and spend some relaxing time in a tranquil, quiet setting? Let the world pass you by? How about romantic, starry nights? No telephone and no interruptions? Not another house in sight. Then our Irish Country Cottage might be just the right place for you! Discover the real Ireland!

Our cottage is nestled in the heart of Ireland. It is cozy, and warm with 3 bedrooms and 1 ½ bathrooms. The house is one level and has a modern style and the smell of wood throughout. The three bedrooms and main bathroom are off the hall. The first bedroom has a double bed and the other two bedrooms each have single beds.

The kitchen boasts an open floor plan with a dining room table seating 6. It has a refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave, and all the cooking necessities to enjoy a meal with your family. Amenities include a toaster, blender, and filtered water.

The cozy living room contains two comfortable full-length leather couches, a small music, book, and video library, and gas fire for your enjoyment on a romantic or cooler night.

A washer and dryer are available on site for your convenience.

Flowers and plants are blooming in the garden and you may experience the occasional visit from foxes and hedgehogs. You may hear the sound of sheep bleating and cows mooing in the surrounding fields.

Area Info
The cottage sits on one half acre, a short distance from the towns of Athlone and Roscommon. Enjoy beautiful views of the Shannon River, which is a 5 minute walk from the house. Lough Ree is close by and the hub for all kinds of activities, including boating, fishing, swimming, jet skiing, and golfing at the 18 hole Athlone Golf Course at the Hodson Bay Hotel.

When you feel like exploring, dancing and music is in every pub, and you could visit Sean's Bar, the oldest pub in Ireland. St. John's Wood is a stone's throw away and an excellent place for an exhilarating hike. Visit Clonmacnoise, an early Christian site founded between 545-548, and enjoy a beautiful sunset overlooking the Shannon River with Celtic crosses in the background.

Kilbeggan is host to the Kilbeggan Horse Races and Locke's Distillery, home of Ireland's finest whiskey. Discover Birr, an Irish Heritage Town with Georgian architecture and Birr Castle, which features one of the world's largest telescopes, located on the castle grounds.

Our Irish cottage is centrally located, and an easy drive to either coast. Or, take a scenic bus or train ride from Athlone or Roscommon into Dublin or Galway. Experience the majestic Cliffs of Moher or take a trip to the Dingle Peninsula. All of these and more are within easy reach.

Guestbook

Lecarrow Cottage offers an atmosphere of total tranquility. The cottage is located mid-way between the towns of Athlone and Roscommon, about a 10 minute drive from each town, on the banks of the Lough Ree. The cottage offers home comforts, and is beautifully decorated inside. It is surrounded by its own country-cottage style garden. You can be on the banks of the Lough Ree within minutes. The Hudson Bay Hotel and golf course is just a five minute drive from the house. The town of Athlone is friendly and welcoming to all tourists. You can even visit the oldest bar in Ireland, Sean's Bar, close to Athlone Castle. For a holiday break in Ireland, I can recommend Lecarrow Cottage as a destination that will leave you with a holiday to remember. Chris Powell
