Our cottage is a perfect base from which to explore the west of Ireland. Close by are the lake dwellings on Lough Gara.The ancient burial site at Carrowkeel with its passage tombs is a short drive away.A visit to the Eagle centre outside Ballymote is a must to expierence these macnificent birds in action.

The old market towns of Ballymote and Boyle with their castle and Abbey ruin are within 10 miles. Boyle has a beautiful forest park with lots of great walks and swimming on lough Kee.The Arts festival runs here for a week in July.

Golf courses are plentiful with one of the best in Ballymote which is about 7 miles away. Othere are at Tubbercurry,and Sligo. Try your hand at fishing.You won't have far to go.
