What makes this house unique

This home provides level of space and quality of environment not commonly found in a holiday home, you will not need to compromise your level comfort in order to enjoy a stay in the heart of the West of Ireland. Some of the highlights that some of our guests have enjoyed:

- a lazy afternoon spent in the light filled and spacious first floor living room, alternately reading and enjoying panoramic views from sailing boats and fishing craft making their way up and down the estuary to the new spring lambs cavorting in the outer front garden.

- an evening catering for and entertaining a party of 14 extended family for a family reunion

- the father of a five year old reported spending an afternoon spent teaching his 5 year old son the basics of fishing at the river edge within 100 meters of the house. No fish were caught but a memorable evening was spent

- a lively family family barbeque dining al fresco in the sheltered L -shaped terrace

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is bright and airy was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our holiday. We had three great indulgences!



Eating! This is a great house for entertaining - a well equiped and spacious kitchen and a great dining area overlooking the garden. As we have connections in the area we cooked for and entertained our family and friends - all 12 of them on one occassion - we dined in style.



Our other indulgence was the Seaweed Baths at Inniscrone, soaking in hot seawater baths with seaweed fresh from the Atlantic, just sit back and soak up the goodness - rejuvenation par excellence! Highly recommended.



Our last indulgence was lots of time spent in the huge first floor living room - the ideal antidote to the showery Irish weather ..... a browse through the eclectic book collection provided, a day spent ensconced in an easi-chair looking out over the treetops at Bartragh Island and beyond, a little reading, a little day-dreaming and suddenly its time for dinner. Days well spent!



Thank you for everthing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already planning our return

Excellent house, very well appointed

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent house, very spacious, clean and in a nice secluded part of Ireland, lovely views out to the nearby river. The kitchen is well stocked with all mod cons and doesn't skimp on simple things like having plenty of crockery and utensils as I've seen in other houses. Gerard and Tao, the owners, are very responsive as is their housekeeper, so plenty of help close by if you need it.

We are a family of four. Our two kids enjoyed reading the plentiful children's books and playing with the board games and jigsaws. Shower has excellent pressure. We found the two large digital TVs with HDMI inputs handy for playing movies/TV programs we had with us on our laptop. They have wi-fi also, which is great as our phones couldn't get a decent data connection there.

In the area the highlight for the kids was the Irish School of Falconry in the grounds of the very impressive Ashford Castle (around 90 mins drive). They did the Hawk Walk, one hour of flying hawks, see http://falconry.ie

Beaches nearby: Ross Strand beyond Killala is closest. Further on Lacken Beach is worth a look. And across the river in Sligo, about 30 mins drive, Enniscrone Beach is great.

Further past Killala and Ballycastle, the Ceide Fields is worth investigating. By far the world's largest Stone Age site and world's oldest known field system at around 5,500 years old. Should be better known.

Many thanks for a great stay!!!

Outstanding Accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We had an outstanding stay at this gorgeous house. The place was well-equipped and modern, with a view of the sheep grazing and the river bed. The location was close enough to the town that we were able to buy fresh fish and produce each day. The kitchen has all the amenities to make for a comfortable stay. We are a family of 4, so it was nice to have the extra square footage. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable and modern accommodation. Our daughter loved feeding the horses next door too! I also want to personally thank Gerard, the owner, for extending an extra 3 nights to us without charge. We will always have fond memories of Ireland and of our stay in this house.

Excellent stay at Rosserk House

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have traveled to Ireland on several occasions and have stayed in Ballina twice. This was our first stay at the Rosserk house and it was a pleasure. The description and pictures of the property are accurate, a comfortable home with modern amenities in a quiet peaceful setting on the river. Spectacular views from the large windows. If you are looking for your own peaceful piece of Ireland but close to town an the area sights this, home is for you. You won't be disappointed staying here. Gerard was a pleasure to work with us coming from Arizona. Thank you Gerard. RJ and Ruth

Great relaxing time

  • 5 of 5
The house was fantastic and excelled its description. The facilities and equipment were new and everything was clean and tidy. Everything we needed was there, nothing was a problem for the owner and housekeeper alike. I have recommended the property to my friends. The grounds and view were absolutely stunning. I would thoroughly recommend this house for a relaxing holiday set in peaceful and tranquil surrounding yet within easy distance of Ballina and Killalla. Personally we hardly left the peaceful and rejuvenating surrounding. We are definitely returning next year.

Ideal as a luxurious get-away or a base for touring Ireland's north west with its beautiful coastline and many archaeological sites including local historic Abbeys at Moyne, Rosserk and Rathfran and the Ceide Fields Neolithic site. The local picturesque village of Killala with its 12th centuary Round Tower and small fishing quay (7 min) has several shops, a supermarket and several pubs, some with great food and music. Ballina (12 min drive) has more facilities including swimming pool, leisure centre and gym, cinema and many restaurants.

The area is a fisherman's paradise with both shore fishing and boat charter for deep sea fishing available locally. Shore fishing is possible at numerous recognized fishing spots along the sea cost, the river and lakes. Boat hire for deep sea fishing is available locally in Killala, there is local lake fishing at Lock Conn and and of course the famous Moy river, Ireland's richest salmon fishing territory.

There are several local quiet and unspoilt Blue Flag beaches, Ross, (15 mins) Lacken (30 mins & Enniscrone (30 mins); great cycling and walking on quiet country roads and mountain biking and hill-walking for the more adventurous. Horse riding, including tuition is available locally. Golf is big attraction in this part of Ireland with internationally known links courses at Enniscrone (30mins) and Carne (1 hour) as well a local course at Ballina and several others within easy driving distance.
