About our home

Our home is a detached cottage with 3 bedrooms, 1 sitting room (open fire, TV), the heart of the house is our middle room with extendable dining table (sits 8) and the range. Then there is our office, a bathroom (incl. WC) and a kitchen (gas cooker).
The house has approx. 100m2, no stairs.

There is plenty of outdoor space, several lawns, gardens and sheds.

We have hens and ducks (in a separate field, not running around the garden), there are usually enough fresh eggs in the morning to go around for everyone.

Children are very welcome, we have a swing set and a slide in our garden for everybody to enjoy, and plenty of space to kick a ball around.

A small stream runs through the property. It is fenced off.

We also have a luxury French-style mobile home with 3 bedrooms (1 double, 2 single) that can be used. It features decking all around, including a covered area with a large table and chairs (great for BBQ on a not so sunny day). We also have a BBQ for you to use.

Where is it?


The Organic Centre in Rossinver is less than 20 minutes by car, Sligo is 25 minutes, and Enniskillen 40 minutes.

The area boasts plenty of lovely walks and many gems to discover (from waterfalls to neolithic remnants).

You can walk into the nearest town, Manorhamilton (it's only about 15 minutes walk), but for some of the way along the national road there is no footpath, not ideal for walking, especially with children - the drive into town takes only 2 minutes.
There is plenty of space for parking on our property.

Manorhamilton is home to the Glens Centre (a music/theatre/performance venue) and the Leitrim Sculpture Centre (hosting workshops and exhibitions).
