The space
Extremely spacious and full of light, the house has a contemporary design to the interior with very tall, vaulted white timber ceilings.

The main living areas are very large & interconnecting, with windows on all sides and large bi-fold doors opening to a patio that looks out across beautiful farmlands & countryside.

Geothermal underfloor heating and an open fire heat the house.

The kitchen is perfect for cooking for a large group, set up with all the utensils and cooking equipment you could possibly need, and the large dining table that seats all opens up to the suntrap patio, perfect for BBQ's and spending time outside.

This house is fantastic on warm, sunny days with the doors fully open out onto the patio, looking out to wild flowers and animals beyond the large private garden which wraps around the house. Equally so in Autumn or Winter when it might be howling a gale outside, but you are toasty inside with a fire lit in the Living Room. Plenty of room for everyone to relax and hang out, even if the weather keeps you inside!

The natural light in this house is great for your soul and wonderfully relaxing. We regularly use this ourselves to host large family gatherings or celebrations.

We have a great book collection available for you, with many books for both children and adults, and a selection of board games and toys also. There is a large TV with Apple TV available, together with a DVD player and a selection of DVD's available.

In addition to the main living room is a large play room area upstairs on the mezzanine. This has a Foosball table, Dart board, DVD player and seating for little (and big!) kids to hang out.

The house is also fantastic for pilates and yoga - super relaxing! We have had groups rent the house purely for this purpose.

The village of Castlepollard is 10 mins drive away where there are a selection of pubs, fruit/vegetable shop, butcher, hardware store, takeaways and a supermarket among others.

Within a couple of kilometres of the the house is the estate of Tullynally Castle, the seat of the Earl of Longford which you can visit. There are beautiful grounds, woods and gardens available to walk through with regular events held here, and a Tea House too. There are even Alpacas to visit in the walled gardens!

The ancient village of Fore is 15 minutes drive from the house. Located in a magical valley with the ruins of many monastic buildings dotted around this is one of our absolute favourite spots. As well as the ruins to visit, there is a lovely 2.5km loop woodland walk called the Nelly-Nancy walk, as well as tiny but extremely friendly pubs in the small village which date back over 200 years!

The village of Multyfarnham is 15 minutes drive around the lake. This is a lovely village with another access point to the lakeshore of Lough Derravaragh, and also the 6th Century beautiful Franciscan Friary and grounds which are lovely to visit.

There are many, many lakes within 15 minutes drive of our house, and the area is known for excellent fishing. As well as the lake beside us, in particular Lough Owel and The White Lake are regular fisherman haunts, with the possibility to rent boats on all of them.

There is also Lough Lene which also has a designated swimming area and wooden jetty where we swim in the summer with our kids.

Mullingar is a much larger town 25 minutes drive from the house, and there you will find a much wider selection of shops and services.

Hello, We designed and built this house ourselves to allow us to host gatherings for our extended families, and also to allow our kids bring friends away with us down to our escape in the countryside at weekends. It is a fantastic, spacious home (if we do say so ourselves!), and we have hosted many a happy and memorable family gathering here, in all seasons. We look forward to having you to stay!
