El alojamiento
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.

Acceso para huéspedes
There is a very large garden surrounding the house, with swings and a football goal for the kids, and woods to explore. The fields to the rear of the house have sheep and cattle in them who entertain us daily as we watch from the Kitchen table, and there are horses kept in the field next to us also who occasionally pop their head over the fence. We often have rabbits, pheasant or even a fox in the garden too, and a huge variety of birds. A short walk down the country lane from the house is Lough Derravaragh which is a large, well-stocked lake, renowned for excellent fishing and boating. Here you can see all sorts of fascinating wildlife. There are regularly fishermen gearing up to head out on the lake, and it's great for skimming stones! There is a picnic area with swings there also.

Otros aspectos destacables
No Parties Allowed - please discuss in advance if you have any queries on this.

We have prepared a detailed 'House Manual' which will be available to you in advance and during your stay. In this are all the practical directions for staying in the house, how to operate some of the equipment in the house, particularly for overseas travelers who may not be familiar with our appliances.

We also include contact details for local taxi/babysitter/take away/emergency numbers/minibus/supermarket that delivers to the house etc. so they are close to hand. Guests often use the online ordering service of one of the larger supermarkets to have groceries delivered to them when they arrive.

We are conscious that many of our visitors are families or groups who take the house for a longer period to use as a base to explore. We have spent years adventuring and exploring with our kids and visitors who have stayed with us, so we have maps and lots of helpful information for you on local walks from the house and in the surrounding area, historic castles and sites for you to visit; good places for picnics, a swim or a day trip fishing, information on amenities like golf clubs & sports facilities, as well as a list of restaurants and more importantly pubs to visit!

Generally information to make it easy for you to plan your trip and get the most out of your stay at Fionn Radharc if you want to venture further afield. And we are more than happy to help you in the direction of information for planning your trip before you get here.

We have contacts with taxi and minibus drivers, babysitters known to us, a fishing Gilly and even a Tour Guide with countrywide and local historical knowledge in the area who can all help make more of your stay. A number of overseas groups have used out house as a base to explore Ireland for a longer trip, basing themselves at the house but taking day trips to Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Distilleries etc. using a local minibus driver to do all the driving for them.

Although you will have sole access to the entire property for the duration of your stay, there will be help on hand in close vicinity at all times when you stay at our home.

We have built this house ourselves as a project over the last number of years for use by our family. As with every building project we have some little jobs here and there left to do so we would not want to advertise it as pristine, but it is a superbly relaxing house that has comfortably hosted many a large family gathering for us to date, in all seasons.

The master bedroom has a large apex window opening onto the balcony. Because this is completely private, with only sheep looking back at us, we do not have any curtains fitted in this room as it would ruin the view. We do keep eye masks in the bedside locker for visitors who would prefer to block the light out, but these are rarely used as it is lovely to wake up to the morning sunshine and a view across acres of countryside and lake beyond.

A car is essential to access this house as it is a rural location, but as stated before we have local taxi and minibus drivers on hand to help with nights out to sample the local pubs if needed.

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!
