In its current configuration a completely self-contained part of the property is used for self-catering accommodation. It is very popular with anglers and family groups from Ireland, Mainland Europe, and North America.
The entrance hall leads to 6 ensuite ground floor bedrooms and a staircase rising to the first floor landing. On this floor is the guest kitchen and dining room with panoramic views over the lake and surrounding countryside. Also on this floor is the games room with ample space for table tennis, fussball and other family games. A separate large TV lounge is situated on the second floor.
The hall also provides access via a door to the rest of the accommodation which includes a comfortable sitting room with solid fuel fire and a well equipped kitchen / diner on the ground floor. While on the first floor are 2 large double ensuite bedrooms.
Outside is a new block shed divided into separate utility room and general storage areas, all complimented by the compact but beautifully appointed garden.
