Where is it?
Our home is situated on the scenic drive which encircles the beautiful Lough Key Forest Park. We have beautiful views from our southfacing home and the lake view is just 5 minutes walk from our house. We are situated within walking distance of a small nature reserve and we have a beautiful woodland/lake walk on our doorstep. The Forest Park is just a few minutes car journey from our door and is a great tourist attraction. The Park offers opportunities for country and woodland walks, boat trips, board walks through the treetops and zip wiring. There are playgrounds and boda borg activities, so there is something for all age groups on offer.
We are situated just 20 minutes from Carrick on Shannon, 10 minutes from Boyle and 40 minutes from Sligo and the seaside. We are approx 2.5 hours away from Dublin. Dublin is accessible by train (2hours journey time). Carrick on Shannon, has something to offer for all age groups; There are several good restaurants, a cinema and theatre and art gallery. There is a vibrant nightlife and festivals, including the 'Carrick Water Music Festival' which takes place in July. As Carrick is situated on the Shannon Erne Waterway our area is popular with people who enjoy boating and fishing. There are daily boat trips on offer in town.
Carrick has it's own swimming pool, indoor bowling alley, tennis courts, library, and indoor and outdoor playgrounds for smaller children.
We are well situated for several beautiful golf courses including Carrick on Shannon, Rosses Point and Strandhill (Links) and Castle Dargan (Designed by Darren Clark). The latter also houses a spa and restaurant.
There is a farmers market in Boyle (Saturday) and Carrick (Thursday). There is also an organic garden centre within minutes drive of our home, and this is a great source for local salads and vegetables, for those who like to dine at home!
Sligo offers good shopping and restaurants as well as as summer arts and music festivals and the Yeats Festival. There are beaches at Strandhill, Rosses Point, and Enniscrone (all approximately 40 mins - 1 hour away and so easily within a day trip from our home). Surf lessons are available at Strandhill.
