I recently cycled from Glasgow to Co.Leitrim in Southern Ireland and stayed over at the Ballycanal Guest House for one night on route. It has a really homely atmosphere and the staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed and spotlessly clean. After a hard day on the saddle, the superb bed in particular helped me to unwind and prepare me for the next leg of my journey. Similarly, the quality of the hearty full Irish Breakfast was excellent. Moira Village is only 10 mins walk away along a safe pavemented road, and is well worth taking a wander up to. The House itself is situated in fine countyside with lovely views and walks along the canal. Undoubtably, I will be back and would recomend it to anyone.
