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.

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
