The apartment which was designed and decorated by Gael, has a wonderfully eclectic and cosy ambience that is unique to this B and B. The apt is open plan, bright and airy with one very comfortable 5ft bed. There is also a camp bed that can be pulled out to accommodate 1 more. The kitchenette is fully kitted out for self catering. There is ample storage space.
My inspiration for our BnB harks back to the B&Bs of old....when you stayed with the family, in their home. Here you can have the best of both worlds....your own space to sleep and eat or our dining room table for meals and company !
Our house is right beside the apt, so we are close by for all your needs or any information that you might require. If you need some sugar.....whatever it is, we will endeavour to help.
If you would like to joins us for breakfast ( €10pp) or dinner (€15pp ) just let us know and we will set some extra places for whatever is in the pot !
Our garden is wonderful for relaxing in and we would love you to enjoy it too. There is a also a lovely al fresco dining area and we have swings and a slide for the kids to enjoy as well.
Mt Temple is a beautiful little well kept village with a bar, restaurant, shop, church, an impressive 18 hole golf course & a driving range. (We have golf sticks, in all sizes if needed) Our home is 10min walk to all of these.
5 mins drive away, there is a lovely 30min walk along the bog and through the woods where i bring my dogs everyday.
The Old Rail Trail ..Mulingar to Athlone Greenway
This is a ‘must’ cycle for anyone who likes getting out on their bike. Start at one of the many entry points (the nearest is 3kms) and for the next 40km you’re in biking heaven. This is a dedicated cycle path that follows the old rail track under arched bridges, through a tunnel and past beautiful countryside all the way to Athlone. With lots of entry and exit points, you can hop on and off to explore the villages and attractions along the way.
Athlone is a picturesque town on the banks of the River Shannon .. Athlone castle is 900yrs old and has a great interactive museum which is definitely worth a visit, as is the free art Gallery. Luan Gallery opened up in 2013 overlooking the river and showcases some great Irish and local art.
The charming left bank area has some great restaurant ( many of which we can recommend) and pubs with lots of live traditional Irish music and Ireland's oldest bar, Seans.
