Guests can just sit back, and enjoy the countryside views while relaxing warmly in front of an open fire with locally cut turf. Three-bedroomed cottages have 2 double and 3 single beds, the two-bedroomed have 1 double and 3 single beds. Carmel and Aidon Cassidy. Pets are welcome.


The Fishing – Shannon-Erne Waterway and lots of exciting lakes
From the cottages there is a new road to the banks of Cuillaghan Lake and fishing stands where the bream, roach and hybrid fishing can be excellent. The Woodford River cuts through Ballyconnell Town and while there are plenty of fish to be caught there, local lakes such as Derrycarn and Killywilly are bursting with bream, roach and hybrids and give superior catch returns. Ballyconnell is at the heart of an enormous warren of lakes and rivers containing everything from tench to monster pike.
