Nestled in the picturesque village of Fuerty/Castlecoote our newly renovated 1950s home & BBQ hut is the perfect rural retreat, plus the bonus of fishing in the River Suck & lakes, with a warm stove fire at the end of day.

Enjoy the great outdoors & cosy up to a BBQ no matter what the weather. Our BBQ hut is the perfect way to entertain friends/family or just to escape a wintry evening.

Please note BBQ hut is complimentary and I ask all guests to clean hut after use for next guests.

The space
This 1950s home is revamped with a mix of modern/mid 20th Century and
a nod to the past. The interior is spacious, homely and brightly lit with great views of unspoiled farmland.

The house is renovated with a modern kitchen, newly fitted out with all you need to cook up a storm. Its a fun space to cook in, just remember to crank up the radiogram.

For a relaxing night in wind down by a warm fire in the living room, which features an original old Irish crane and hanging cast iron teapot. We have supplied some board games to bring out your competitive side.

The house has a choice of three unique bedrooms (two Double and one
King size bed) and two spacious bathrooms.

Fuerty/Castlecoote is steeped in history and Irish folklore. Just 3.5 miles you can visit the prehistoric La Tène stone dating back to The Iron Age. Along the way, you will pass the resting place of Diarmuid and Gráinne (a famous Irish legend) and Fuerty cemetery with graves dating back to the 1700s.

During your stay why not get involved in the Suck Valley Walk, take in a round of golf, catch your dinner in the River Suck (and throw it back in) or try your luck at the Roscommon Races.

Where you’ll be

Roscommon, Ireland

It is hard to resist a walk in the country side which allows you to take in local historic sites with little effort. Here is a few just down the road;

La Tène Stone
Just 2.5 miles from The Green Cow you can visit the per historic La Tène Stone, Castlestrange (close to a fishing spot too). The stone stands on the grounds of the Castlestrange estate, long since turned to ruin.

This granite boulder, with carved detail in relief, is said to date back to the Iron Age and is amongst the finest examples of Celtic stones in Europe - see photo care of MzM Creative Services.

Fuerty Cemetery
Be sure to drop into Fuerty cemetery on your way to the La Tène Stone, Castlestrange.

You will find ruins of a Franciscan church, in which 100 priests were massacred in Cromwellian times by Colonel Ormsby, the local tyrant. Some of the gravestones date back to 1720 and there are graves and tombs you may find interesting.

Two headstones are of special interest – one, erected over the grave of a blacksmith, is carved to show anvil, bellows and smith’s tongs. The other, over the grave of a shepherd, shows a sheep and shepherd’s crook.

Diarmuid and Grainne’s Resting Place
One of the great romantic legends of Ireland is that of Diarmuid and Grainne. The story tells of the great hunt of the famous warrior Fionn Mac Cumhaill, seeking revenge for Grainne who deserts him at their wedding feast. She slips a sleeping potion into his drink and to the rest of the guests and encourages Diarmuid to run away with her. There were perused through Forests, over mountains, through bogs, never resting and eating in the same place. Some say one of Diarmuid and Grainne’s resting place was in Fuerty just a short walk from the house.

It really is just a small mound with a tree sheltering it. If however, you are passing by you may as well say you have seen one of the ‘Beds of Diarmuid and Grainne’.

Roscommon has some of the finest angling lakes in the country and the River Suck, which is a short distance of The Green Cow, is renowned for its trout and coarse fishing.

Don't forget to look up Lough Key Forest Park. It has activities for all ages such as Zipit Forest adventures, Electric bike trails, Woodland Segway to mention a few.

You can always take a day trip to Galway, Mayo or Sligo.

Hey there. I love mid 20c furniture....which you might see hints of in the house. I work in the animation industry in a cool studio in Dublin but I still have one foot firmly in country soil and frequent Roscommon as much as I can to check in on my pony, my pet sheep and the house. I hope you enjoy the rural experience of Fuerty as much as I do.
