Frank's Cottage is a traditionally styled cottage but modernised to make your stay comfortable and welcoming! The sitting room is the heart of this home with wood panelled high ceilings and the wood burning stove - heated with turf from our own bog! You enter the smaller of the two bedrooms from here - with its two single beds this room still maintains the traditional feel. From the sitting room you enter the modern country kitchen with seating for 6 and a fully equipped kitchen. While having your breakfast, you can look out into the fields and watch the donkeys playing!

While having your breakfast, you can look out into the fields and watch the donkeys playing! The Double bedroom is accessed through the kitchen and this is a large room with plenty of wardrobe space and room for an extra single bed or toddler bed (upon request). The utility room connects the kitchen with both the back door and the large shower room (with electric shower). There is a washer/dryer in the utility room as well as cleaning supplies. Heating is provided through oil fired central heating which is on a timer.This can be adjusted to suit your schedule. This is supplemented with the wood burning stove and turf is provided for your use. All heating and electricity is included in the price. We ask all guests to clean up after themselves and to leave the cottage in the same condition in which they found it. Starter supplies are provided in our welcome basket and in relevant areas which consist of toilet roll, paper kitchen towels, firelighterin the stove, turf, washing tab, dish wash detergent and cleaning cloth, cleaning supplies, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, scones, butter, jam!! The cottage is located in a quiet, rural area, 5 miles from the neighbouring towns of Charlestown and Ballaghaderreen. Sometimes the only noise is the sound of farm animals and birds chirping! There is no public transit within walking distance, so a car is a very good idea. One of the best loved aspects about Frank's Cottage are the two very friendly donkeys who are sure to give you a big, warm welcome DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE: *Families with young children staying more than 2 nights - please indicate the number of children and their ages to apply for this discount *Guests staying 3-5 nights will be given a discount off the nightly rate. A local shop/pub is just 2 miles away, while neighbouring towns 5 miles away in Charlestown Co. Mayo and Ballaghaderreen, Co Roscommon offer pubs, restaurants and shops. Further afield are the bigger towns of Castlebar (35 min), Sligo (55 min) and Carrick on Shannon (45 min) with a variety of activities, restaurants, and shops. Knock Shrine is a 25 minute drive and Galway City about 1 1/2 hours. This is a great property for families and couples alike! Knock Airport and car rental is 10 miles away. Local bus services available in nearby towns, 5 miles away, with transport to many destinations. Two train lines are available, each about a 25 minute drive away. If there is anything else we can do to make your stay more comfortable, please let us know :) We have two very friendly donkeys and a horse, who love nothing more than to be fed a carrot or given a pet!

How to get there
From Kerry/Limerick/Galway Direction: From the N17 follow this road past Knock Shrine and then Knock Airport.
