The space

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.

(English/français) Our stay at Ray's was the most peaceful ever. The room is neat and clean, the bed confortable, the communal area spacious and relaxing. I'm very picky on street light and sound at night, and the room is perfect in that regard. Ray was very helpful throughout the stay and has the quality of the stay of his guests at heart, and I certainly would recommend his place for any traveler visiting the west coast of Ireland and looking for a couple of revitalising nights or looking to get some piece of mind. Ce centre de retraite est des plus paisibles. La chambre est propre, le lit confortable, l'espace commun chaleureux et tourné vers le calme intérieur. Pas de lumière de réverbère ni de bruit la nuit, ce qui en fait une adresse parfaite pour ceux et celles en quête de quiétude. Ray est par ailleurs adorable et plein de petites attentions qui font la différence.

Was made to feel very welcome. The room was big with a view of the local countryside. Returned on a damp evening to find a log fire had been lit for my comfort. Ray is very knowledgeable and made sure I had what I needed.
