Overview

County Westmeath House Rental Photos and Description

4 double bedrooms, 3 ensuite shower rooms & 1 full bathroom. Sleeps 8

From the moment you enter this house, you will feel 'at home'. The mid-century property has been fully refurbished in a classic contemporary style with your total comfort in mind. Facilities are excellent both in the house itself and on the outside space with a paved terrace & private secluded garden. Enjoy a barbecue at your leisure while sitting at our outside fire pit and enjoying the atmosphere of rural village life. Later, you can take a gentle stroll to one (or all) of the 3 traditional Irish Pubs, meet and join in with a 'session' with the locals!

With all amenities within easy reach, it is an ideal base for your holiday in the heart of Ireland.

Set in the heart of Ireland, in the historic village of Castletown Geoghegan this beautifully refurbished bungalow will make an excellent base for your exploration of the Irish Midlands. Located midway between Dublin and Galway this country getaway is ideally situated between the towns of Athlone, Mullingar, Tullamore and Longford. Within walking distance, the village has a church, a well stocked grocery shop, post office and three cozy country pubs.

With Lough Ennel less then a five minute drive away you are within easy striking distance of a pitch and putt course, fishing, boating, water sports at the Jonathon Swift Park and Lilliput Adventure Centre. For lovers of golf the area has numerous top quality golf courses including Mullingar Golf Club, New Forest in Tyrrellspass, Moate and Glasson .

The nearby town of Kilbeggan is the home of the oldest Irish whiskey distillery with its own visitors centre & museum. Kilbeggan race meetings are held throughout the summer season.

There are plenty of modern amenities in the major towns in the area, cinemas, swimming pools, leisure centers, bowling and horse riding. For those with an interest in local history, the house is situated across the road from one of Ireland’s finest examples of a Motte and Bailey dating from Norman times. The village is named after the McGeoghegan family, extensive landowners disposed in Cromwellian times. Their coat of arms can be seen on a headstone in the old R.C. graveyard. The Church of Ireland graveyard is the burial place of Arthur Boyd Rochfort recipient of the Victoria Cross, Medal of Honour for Valour during the First World War. His family were the original owners of Middleton Park House which is now an exclusive wedding venue & fine dining restaurant. For those interested in more recent history it was in the local village hall that Joe Dolan performed at his first dance for the local hurling club. Joe went on to worldwide fame & his life-size statue can be seen in Mullingar.

The house consists of four double bedrooms (sleeps 8), three of which are en-suites, main bathroom, kitchen and a separate living/dining room with glazed doors to a private terrace with a seating area and a private enclosed garden. This is strictly a non-smoking house.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful house, so clean and plenty of space. 9 of us stayed here for the weekend as we were attending a wedding and it was perfect. Anything we needed was in the house down to plasters for our sore feet at the wedding :) The fridge was full and the stove lit when we arrived which was much appreciated. I met Ita on the Friday and she was so friendly and welcoming. Thank you Ita. I would highly recommend this property!!!

I echo all the wonderful reviews. We just spent a highly comfortable and peaceful weekend here while visiting for a wedding! At first the lack of wifi was unexpected but really enjoyable and cherished. The owner was so helpful and the provisions were very generous!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
I really cannot rate this holiday home highly enough! We were a party of 9 staying here for a wedding; the house is 5 mins walking from the church, and 5 mins drive from the reception so ideally located for our needs. Being a party of 9 we were worried that we would feel cramped in the house; definitely not the case, the house is so spacious and welcoming, we had such a comfortable stay. Ita really has thought of everything, from the lit stove on arrival to providing shampoo & more than enough towels, snacks and the fridge stocked with the makings of a full Irish really was the cherry on top! Very reasonably priced too, would definitely stay here again, and not just for a wedding!

Brilliant Stay

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Ita & Joe's house and what a pleasant time we had. There was 7 adults & 1 child and the house was huge inside - it is very deceiving from the outside. The house is tastefully decorated and very clean with everything you could need - its a home away from home. Ita also had the kitchen stocked up with food - this I think is beyond the call of duty, but a very welcome surprise. The house is very warm & comfortable, we recommend it very highly and Ita is a delight to deal with.
