The Holiday Homes
Guests staying at the family-friendly Douglas Lodge Holiday Homes can enjoy a myriad of local attractions at their fingertips. Active types can head to The Shannon Blueway, Carrick-on-Shannon and Boyle golf courses and The Moorlands Equestrian Centre, while those keen on tranquillity and views can explore Lough Key Forest & Activity Park with its picnic grounds and 12th-century abbey ruins.
Boasting a homey feel, the holiday homes feature three bedrooms, some with en suite facilities, kitchens and dining rooms, as well as sitting areas to wind down or socialise.
When not in the mood for cooking, travellers can venture a little further afield to discover the local food scene.
Groupon’s Guide to Co. Roscommon
With origins reaching back in history to the medieval period, the land-locked County Roscommon is a haven for history lovers. The region is peppered with numerous megalithic tombs, ancient monuments, and ring forts and houses some interesting museums such as the Irish National Famine Museum and Railway Museum & Railway Memorabilia.
The romance of the bygone era is not the only treat the region has to offer. While legs get some workout on the local walking trails, eyes get treated to the picture-like views of lakes and hills which generously dot the green region. Thrill seekers can also push their boundaries in a Boyle-based adventure park, and those hungry for extraordinary experiences can time their visit for springtime to attend a lamb festival, the only one in Ireland. After an eventful day, appetites and thirsts can be catered for in many traditional Irish pubs.
