The Coach House is a separate spacious two bedroom unit with optional annexe next door to the main Georgian house, set in a stunning location on 231 acres in the middle of the Irish countryside.

This is an ideal base for a walking holiday starting with glorious walks up Knockeyon, fishing trip with Lough Ennel, Lough Owel, Lough Sheelin nearby or visiting the places of historical interest in the area such as Fore Abbey, Tullynally Castle, Belvedere, Celtic burial grounds (Loughcrew, Newgrange), large Period houses.

Well presented, very comfortable in a quiet rural location, close to Mullingar. We enjoyed our walk to the loch.

Stunning location and main house is picture perfect as if you were back in the early 1800's but a host that is gracious and provides all of today's amenities. Sunsets over the lawn sloping to the lakeside and colors galore behind the hills on the other side. Not to mention the sheep and friendly dogs to add to the gentile county feel.

We had a great stay, the place is stunning. John and Clarissa were very accommodating, especially considering that we were a group of eight people with young children. Thank you!

This is a gem of a place. the location is idyllic both as a natural spot and a character country home. The peace is indescribable. The lake is so beautiful, the home so clean and tasteful. The hosts are welcoming, accommodating and warm. I vastly recommend this home.

We loved our stay at Johns place. We didn't get much time to enjoy the place or the surrounding area and would love to go back again and explore. Would highly recommend this cottage to people who are visiting Ireland.
