House in Ballymahon, Co Longford, Ireland

 
 The House
The house is cosy, well appointed and maintained with private parking.The house is located in a quiet rural setting within 3k of the small market town of Ballymahon https://ballymahontown.com/ in the centre of Ireland and is surrounded by Newcastle Woods popular for walking and cycling. Wildlife includes deer, badgers, pine martin, several species of bats and on the odd occasion a Kingfisher can be seen exploring the river. The vegetation in the forest includes a wide variety of fungi.

Ballymahon is well serviced with Restaurants, Supermarkets, Pharmacies, Butchers Hairdressers and other necessities. The larger towns of Athlone, Longford and Mullingar, can be reached in less than half an hour.
The cities of Dublin and Galway are just over an hour away.
Center Parcs, a premier holiday destination chose to locate one of their operations in the Ballymahon area. http://www.centerparcs.co.uk/en-ie/villages/longford-forest. The Leinster Fleadh Cheoil (Provincial Irish Music Festival) will be held in Ballymahon from 14th July 2017 to 16th July 2017 It is a wonderful opportunity to be part of the celebration of Irish music and culture. http://www.longfordleader.ie/search?q=Leinster%20Fleadh
It is an excellent location for cycling with multiple designated cycle tracks on quiet country roads but the real “Gem” is the Royal Canal with its excellent, newly surfaced tow path, which in the easterly direction will take you all the way to Dublin and in the opposite direction to the River Shannon which is the longest river in the British Isles, running through peaceful rural countryside with interesting bridges, wild flowers etc.
The river Inny flows within 200m of our house and is widely regarded as a popular grade 2 – 3 kayaking river. http://iww.ie/river_guide/river.php?id=309
A wide range of fishing activities are available from bank fishing on the river Inny (which is nearby), to the river Shannon, also lake fishing on Lough Ree, less than 10k from this location .
Close by, for the keen fly fisherman, there is a well stocked private lake with boat supplied for a surprisingly low fee.
Just a few kilometres beyond Athlone is Clonmacnoise - an early Christian Monastic Settlement.

For those with a literary interest, Goldsmith, the Irish novelist, playwright and poet, best known for his novel The Vicar of Wakefield (1766). His birthplace is at Pallas. The house is now in ruins and about 3k from our home.

A little further along this road is Abbeyshrule, a picturesque village located on the banks of the Royal Canal. It has won a gold medal winner for the National Tidy Towns Awards. The village also has an airfield which is a popular location for light aircraft enthusiasts and also offers flying tuition.
On occasions, our neighbours at Newcastle House Hotel, host vintage car, hot air balloons etc
