Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Last week I thought I saw one of the lamas running down the field only to discover it was a deer from the nearby Great Wood planted about 150 years ago. Our house is 1.5 miles from the nearest crossroads which has a pub, mini-market and petrol station that opens eight to late. The town where we all work and study is 6 miles away and has a rail link to Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway. All of those are two hours drive except Cork which is 3.5 to 4 hours. The midlands is a place of bogs and solitude with monastic sites at Durrow, Rahan and Clonmacnoise all 10-30 mins by car but there is vibrant night life and good food in Tulllamore with Athlone and Mullingar 30-40 minutes away. Mountain walks in the Slieve Bloom are less than thirty mins away and there are two golf course within ten minute drive. Being in the middle of Ireland would give you an ideal base to see most of the country.
