The picturesque village of Clonmellon with wide tree-lined Main Street, provides for all the typical facilities that one would expect for a centre of its kind to include national school, health centre, post office, credit union, food outlets, various shops and public houses as well a number of sporting facilities and recreation clubs.

Golfing is superbly catered for in the area with golf courses at Headfort in Kells. There are several lakes nearby making the area ideal for those fond of fishing or water sports. Locally angling on the Stoneyford, Yellow Ford and Blackwater rivers is popular. The Ballymacads hunt the area. The nearby Loughcrew Hills which incorporate a complex of passage tombs are one of Irelands most magnificent and abounding archaeological landscapes, ideal for weekend exploration.

Importantly Clonmellon, on the N52 road (Dundalk / Limerick route), is only about ten minutes drive from the M3 motorway, Kells and Athboy.

Blanchardstown by car can be easily achieved in forty five minutes, similar to the connection to the M50. The towns of Athboy, Kells, Trim and Navan are 10km, 13km, 21km and 24km distant respectively with the Westmeath locations of Delvin and Mullingar being 8km and 28km distant respectively. Given its location close to arterial routes, some 350 metres from the N52, convenient to the M3 and with the M1, M2, M4 and M6 not too distance either, this property is likely ideal for those who transverse the country for a living.
