Welcome to Dún Beag Haven, a quirky cottage in the heart of the Irish countryside, a few miles outside the boating village of Roosky, Roscommon. Surrounded by wildlife and 14 acres of meadowland for kids and pets (and grown-ups!) to explore, with a secluded green harbour just a few minutes stroll from the back of the garden. This peaceful property is perfect for families, couples or groups of friends looking to escape the city for a relaxing holiday in the countryside.

The space
Dún Beag means "little fort" in Irish, and a few nights in this Haven will certainly fortify your heart and soul. The beautiful peaceful holiday home includes 3 bedrooms, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, large living/dining room, and a comfortable parlour with DVDs, books and games, and a working fireplace for extra comfort (natural turf and firewood is provided). With a large patio space and garden, and 14 acres of wild meadowland to explore, the property is also ideal for kids and pets. There is also a private harbour just a few minutes stroll down the field, a lovely quiet spot to relax by the water.

In these times, the health and safety of our guests is our top priority. Please be assured that we will be taking extra steps to clean and sanitise all frequently-touched surfaces before and after each guest. We will also be blocking 48 hours before and after each reservation as an extra precaution to clean and ventilate the space and allow any airborne particles to dissipate.

Guest access
You will have the entire 3 bedroom cottage to yourself, as well as access to the large garden and patio space (featuring sun loungers, table and chairs and a chimenea fireplace to keep you warm in the evenings), with the rest of the meadowland on your doorstep to explore at your leisure. Please note that I live on-site (in a self-contained extension with separate entrance and windows facing the other direction). Access to the garden and land will be shared with me so you may see me coming and going from time to time, otherwise the property is yours to enjoy privately.

Other things to note
PETS are very welcome, but are not permitted on the indoor furniture, and must be well trained and supervised at all times. There is plenty of space for them to run around in the back, but please note that the property is only secured by wide-barred gates and a low wall so a pet could easily access the main road in front if left unsupervised.

There is NO WIFI provided. Mobile data reception generally works well on Meteor/eir, Vodafone and Tesco Mobile networks. Phones on the Three network have limited connectivity.

The TV is DVD-ONLY. There is a selection of DVDs available for you to watch, or you can bring your own. The DVD player has a USB port if you'd like to bring some movies or TV shows on a USB stick. There are also lots of books and games for you to enjoy, when you're not out exploring the natural surroundings or relaxing in the garden.

WELLIES (Wellington boots) are needed to access the private harbour. You will need to walk through a field which can be quite wet and marshy. Hiking boots may be suitable in periods of dry weather but bring your wellies just in case. There is a small selection available in the house for you to borrow if needed.

Location

Roosky, County Roscommon, Ireland

The property is located in a very quiet rural area, surrounded by fields and wildlife. The nearest village is Roosky, about a 10 minute drive away. There you will find a few bustling riverside pubs, and a well-stocked Centra store for essentials. We are also within just a half hour drive from other neighbouring towns such as Strokestown, Roscommon, Longford and Carrick-on-Shannon.
