The lack of light pollution mean the stars from the back lawn can be spectacular. Many decks and places to stop and enjoy the view. Fire pits and a barbeque for cook outs herbs are planted around the house . We have recently added a bbq hut to the garden by the stream which can sit eight. We have been letting our home out for five years and have had some very positive feedback in our guest book with visitors from every continent. We are in the heart of theSlieve Bloom Mountains in the Environment Park.. You can see deer, falcons, pine martens which are exclusive to the area, toads, badgers, endangered pipistrel bats and field mice. One guest says he saw a kingfisher by our stream. We keep the house well and it has been known for a bat to fly in through an open window and field mice are curious. We have never had house visits from peegrine falcon or deer. The Slieve Blooms make a great base for touring as they are literally in the hear of the counrty. We have many maps and local walks for you to explore this unspoilt and relatively undiscovered part of Ireland.More

About the neighbourhood
The Slieve Bloom Environment Park is designated as an area of natural beauty and conservation and is one of only a few in Ireland. It is around 90 minutes fron Dublin airport/ sea port and under two hours from the fery terminal in Rosslare. We are close to two radial train lines starting in Dublin - the train from Tullamore heads west to Galway and from Portlaoise head south to Cork - these make for alternative days out. Two miles from the local village of Clonaslee - we detail a lovely walk, taxis will bring you home from a night out ( we have names of them in the house) Tullamore takes just twenty minutes from there you have the motorway network heading across the country. From Emo you can head south on the M7.
Getting around
We are very central and make a great base. A car is essential.
