It faces West onto a large secluded garden and is furnished with antiques. It is off a separate landing and has a bathroom next door, which is next to the spare bedroom.
Excursions and Local Attractions
Day trip to Dublin with the host to see tourist attractions that the student is interested in. We live in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Southern part of the Lakelands of Ireland. There is swimming in some lakes in the summer as well as fishing. The great Megalithic temple complex at Loughcrew is nearby (more important than Newgrange). The gardens at Tullynally Castle is on our doorstep and the Abbey at Fore is close as well.
There is a tennis court in the village and we can arrange for horse riding lessons too. We are well situated in the middle of Ireland for trips to the West, North or South.
