4 bedroom house in the north west of Ireland. Our little home is in Boyle, Co. Roscommon, 2 hours drive from Dublin and 35 minutes from the Atlantic Coast. The house is 1500 square feet, and while each room is small, it's a warm and comfortable house full of charm. Our garden is 1.5 acres, bordered by gorgeous green woodlands, home to red squirrels, cuckoos - occasionally we're visited by a family of deer! For winding down, you can relax in the living room with a glass of wine in front of the wood burning stove, or watch a movie on our cable TV (with Netflix). The man of the house is a bit of a nerd, so there is great WiFi, surround sound in the TV room and Amazon Alexa with Spotify in many of the rooms. Central heating is oil fired and easily controlled by a Nest controller (or just ask Alexa to do it for you!). A gardener takes care of the garden, so you don't have to worry about that - although feel free to dig in if you want! The kitchen is small, but fully functional with refrigerator, freezer, 2 ovens, grill, hob, microwave, dishwasher and sink. Adjoining the kitchen is a dining room with 8 seat table. Washing machine and drier are in the garage, adjoining the house. We also have 2 mountain bikes you're free to use. The main bedroom has a double bed, wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with shower. The secondary bedroom also has an en-suite with shower. 3rd bedroom has bunk beds, and the 4th has a day bed, which opens into a full double. There is also a separate nursery with a cot than can transform into a toddler's bed. There's also a multigym and free weights in the garage.
