Welcome to Dún Beag Haven, an authentic but quirky cottage in the heart of the Irish countryside, a few miles outside the boating village of Roosky, Roscommon. Surrounded by wildlife and meadowland, with a private green harbour on the bank of the River Shannon just a few minutes stroll down the field. Private, peaceful and safe, this property is perfect for families, couples or groups of friends looking to escape the city for a relaxing break in the countryside.

The space

Dún Beag means "little fort" in Irish, and a few nights in this Haven will certainly fortify your heart and soul. The beautiful quirky holiday home includes 3 bedrooms, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, large living/dining room, and a cosy parlour with a working fireplace (natural turf is provided).

Guest access

You will have the entire 3 bedroom cottage to yourself, as well as access to a large garden and patio space (featuring a hammock, sun loungers, table and chairs and a chimenea fireplace to keep you warm in the evenings). There are also several acres of wild meadowland for you to explore at your leisure. Please note that access to the garden and land is shared with me so you may see me coming and going from time to time. I may need to cross the patio space occasionally to get into the sheds attached, but otherwise this area is yours to enjoy privately.

Other things to note

Please note there is no wifi provided. Mobile data reception generally works well on Meteor/eir, Vodafone and Tesco Mobile networks. Phones on the Three network have very limited connectivity.

Please also note the TV is DVD-only. There is a selection of DVDs available for you to watch, or you can bring your own. There are also lots of books and games for you to enjoy, when you're not out exploring the natural surroundings or relaxing in the garden.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Rooskey! Such a lovely little town with fantastic people. We went fishing every day, our dogs had the run of the fields and private harbour and then curled up in front of the turf fire in the evenings. Our host Jessica was very pleasant and couldn't have done more to help! It was great having her in the house attached to the cottage as we locked ourselves out one night!

We spent a wonderful few days in Dún Beag Haven. The house was so lovely and the setting is amazing! Jessica was a great host and made us feel really welcome while giving us the space to feel alone! Apart from the beautiful walks around the area, the house was so well equipped that even the kids didn't miss wifi and the dog had a great time in the fields. Thanks for everything and we will definitely be back! Linda, Ciaran, Cara & Matteo

Really quirky little cottage full of character. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay here. We loved going for walks down to the jetty and through the meadowland. Loads of puddles and squelch for the kids to enjoy! Also loved sitting out on the patio in the evenings with the fire lit. We will definitely be back
