The North West Ireland region

The rugged landscape is steeped in history. Many of the caves and passage tombs in the surrounding hills are linked with Irish myth and legend. This is ideal country for the outdoor enthusiast.Enjoy hillwalking in the nearby hills and closer to home feel free to ramble the stone walled fields of the farm.

The Oranmore river forms a picturesque backdrop to the land which is dotted with many mature chestnut and beech trees. Lough Gara with its Crannogs (lake dwellings) dating back to 1000bc is close by.The town of Boyle with its impressive ruined Abbey and weekly farmers market is 16km away Ballymote with its ruined Norman castle is a major centre for angling and also has a golf course.

There are megalithic tombs at Carrowkeel in the Bricklieve mountains close to the caves of Kesh which has wonderful views from its summit. Wonderful beaches at Strandhill Rosses point and Mullaghmore.

Gurteen

Gurteen is a Mecca for traditional Irish music. The Coleman centre in the village hosts weekly events and a music festival every summer. The friendly local pubs also have regular music sessions. Two of the pubs also serve food. The villagers and visitors are well catered for with a supermarket, post office, petrol station,a hotel.and a pharmacy.

The neighbouring towns host numerous festivals throughout the summer months while Boyle has an Arts festival in July. Close by visit the Irish Raptor centre and watch these marvellous eagles in action. Gilligans world is a great day out for the young ones.

See Yeats " lake Isle of Innisfree",visit historic Lissadel house and King house or take scenic drives through the curlew mountains and marvel at Wynnes view.

"What a gem!"

Stayed for four nights, wished we could have stayed longer. Amazing cottage, very welcoming and one of the best equipped cottages we have stayed in. Lots of lovely treats and stunning log burner to we… More

It was a great pleasure meeting you all and I am very happy that the cottage was all that you hoped it would be. After you left such wonderful comments in my guest book at the cottage I didn't expect that you would go to all the extra trouble of writing a review on Trip Advisor. It was a very pleasant surprise to be told you had done just that. With many thanks for your generous comments may I say I look forward to meeting you back at the cottage again in the not too distant future.
best wishes,


Kieran Ruane.

I am delighted you both had an enjoyable experience at the cottage particularly as it was your first visit to Ireland.Thank you for your kind comments on the comfortable beds, the selection of books and the peat fires. Really pleased you took advantage of the walks on the land. It is certainly lovely and peaceful along by the river. I look forward to seeing you both back at the cottage again sometime in the future.

"Warm, welcoming cottage in central location"

We arrived on a cool, rainy day to be greeted warmly by Kieran who had the turf fires burning in the stove and fireplace, making us feel immediately at home. Kieran showed us around the property, whi… More

I am really grateful to you for reviewing my cottage so positively. I am pleased you found it to be so central for exploring the surrounding counties. As you said you are within an hour of most attractions and I whole heartly agree with you abour visiting the Raptor centre which is just a few miles from the cottage. It is a real pleasure to observe those rare birds and the care they receive. Perhaps you will return sometime in the future to James Tymon cottage and you can be assured of a very warm welcome.

"Home away from home"

When we booked the cottage on the internet, we already thougth, how beautiful and cosy the house looked like, and when we came, it absolutely exceeded our expectations. What a sweet cottage! You`ll have everything you need for holidays. The house is well equipped with everything, that makes a holiday feel good. Nice books to read, brochures and information about sights in the surrounding, board games and DVD`s . And: turf! We were not experienced to use turf bricks for fire: it`s wonderful!The house is very tidy and the garden overwhelming. It`s settled between meadows, a river and woods. Peaceful.
But it is the good maintaining and caretaking of the owner, which makes the cottage unique and special. For example: We were welcomed with delicious things like applecake, wine, juice and so, and tea was ready for us. Kieran also gave us ideas of what to do and to see, and was very helpful in organising our further trip. We hope, to come back

Thank you for such a generous and thoughtful review. I am really pleased you found the cottage matched your expectations especially as you had travelled so far to get here. I try to provide all that is needed to make a stay at the cottage both enjoyable and relaxing. Your enthusism and interest in the history of the cottage was very welcome.
It was wonderful meeting you and your family and I am sure you will have fond memories of your visit to Ireland for a long time to come. Until the next time - auf widersehen.

Thank you for taking the time to review James Tymon cottage. It was a great pleasure meeting you and your family. I am very pleased you all enjoyed the cottage and grounds so much. You can really get away from it all on the paths and trails through the fields and by the river with only the sound of bird life to accompany you. As you said it's ideal for all age groups and especially for those with children and pets with lots to explore. With the peace and quiet it can be difficult to believe the village is only 1km away.
I am looking forward to having you return to the cottage in 2014. Best wishes until then.

"James Tymon Cottage, a gem in self-catering lodging."

Every aspect of renting this cottage was first rate: from contact to payment to directions and arrival. Our gracious host and owner, Kieran Ruane, met us and provided an excellent tour of the property… More

Your thoughtful and generous comments are very much appreciated and I am delighted the cottage added to the enjoyment of your holiday particularly that it was well stocked with all the utensils etc that you needed.I try to provide everything one needs for a stay in the cottage not just the bare necessities.

It was a great pleasure having you and your family stay at the cottage. I am very pleased you found it such a good base from which to discover this part of Ireland.

"Search no further !"

I expect that anyone who gets as far as reading this review is considering renting the cottage. Well, save yourself a lot of further eye strain and book it.

There's no point in me repeating what others have already written, which is all true and which I wholeheartedly endorse. What I will add to the previous reviews is that the course fishing in the area is equal to the superb accommodation .
Whether you fish on Lough Gara or the Lung river, they're both full of fish !
So what more could anyone wish for? The very best appointed cottage and arguably, the fishing of a lifetime. A rare and valuable combination !

Finally. If you run short of anything the Supermarket, which is only a 5 minute drive away, stocks just about everything you'll need.

Thank you for your warm endorsement. I am delighted your holiday was all you hoped it would be and that the cottage added to that enjoyment. You have discovered like other guests that some of the best coarse fishing in Ireland is all close at hand. looking forward to having you back at the cottage in the near future.

I am delighted you and your family had such a good stay at James Tymon cottage. It was a real pleasure meeting you all.
The walks through the land and by the river are a particular favourite of most guests. Forest park in Boyle is a real gem with its beautiful lake, lots of walks a nice cafe and only a few miles from the cottage.
Thank you for your very positive review and I hope to see you all back at the cottage in the not too distant future.
