A quick snap by a neighbor just after snowfall.  No special effects - just stars. The house name is written on both sides of the wall.

The house name is written on both sides of the wall.
The house is gated and located in a friendly, quiet, and very safe rural area just outside Athlone.
You can be assured of complete privacy.  (See rooftop of nearest neighbor!) The garden wraps around.

These are the signs that mark our lane, the L2008.

We recently installed a porch, which keeps the house cozy in winter and is a place for muddy shoes.
The living room is also  spacious.  It has two sofas and an armchair. Bring logs for log burner!

“Amazing country retreat just a few minutes from Athlone”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Wow - finally a home that has everything you need. If you're looking for a modern home in traditional Ireland, this is the place for you.

The kids loved 'running wild' in the HUGE garden and doing sports on Loch Ree at the nearby Bay Sports centre. We loved the SPACE both outside and in. So much room. You can relax in front of the log burner in the living room while the kids make noise in the large dining room across the hall! We loved this place and will definitely be coming back. A real home from home. Just lovely.
