Where is it?
Our house is located on a quiet road in a prime amenity area. Surrounding us are many forest and riverside walks. Wildlife abound which includes deers,badgers sometimes we see rabbits. A short distance further (perhaps 3 kilometers) you can walk or cycles on the tow paths of the Royal Canal which goes all the way to Dublin. The local town, Ballymahon is about the same distance away and includes a fine supermarket. Further away (about 8 kilometers) is Lough Ree, a lake on the river Shannon, popular for boating and fishing. On the road to Athlone which is a fine provincial town with all the amenities one would expect (about 18 kilometers)away is the village of Glasson with a number of fine restaurants and an excellent golf course and marina.
A little bit further down the Shannon is the early monastic settlement of Clonmacnoise with its defensive round towers.
Ballymahon is centrally located with Dublin just over an hour and Galway about an hour and a half away.
We are blessed with good neighbours and they are more than happy to facilitate the settling in of our guests.
For those of a literary bent, the writer, Oliver Goldsmith, was born in Pallas, a small village about 3 kilometers away.
