The Western Ireland region

Roscommon is situated in the middle of Ireland making it an ideal location as either a place to stay, as a base to visit other areas of Ireland or as a 'stop off' whilst touring Ireland.

Local attractions include: The Roscommon Arts Centre & Theatre, Roscommon Castle, Castlecoote House & Gardens, Strokestown Famine Museum, Tulsk Heritage Centre and lots more.

Athlone (where you can take a boat tour down the River Shannon) and Carrick-on-Shannon (with its Marina) are just two of the many destinations within easy reach from Roscomon.


OPAL is in the heart of a rural part of Ireland, a small village called Donamon, which is approximately 10km outside of Roscommon Town. This makes it a great location for a peaceful and relaxed stay, whilst enabling guests easy access to the town centre. We are also a short drive from a number of great places to visit.

Surrounded by countryside and scenic views, the area is steeped in history. Donamon Castle (only a short walk from OPAL) is one of the oldest inhabited castles in Europe, built in the 12th century and now home to the Divine Word Mission. You are welcome to wander around the grounds free of charge. The River Suck is also located nearby and is a great place to picnic or go fishing.
