A Gaelic Jaunt

Abbey Hotel

Highlights: Carrick-on-Shannon, Connemara National Park, Westport, Galway, Dublin

Visiting Ireland is an unforgettable experience. Here the lush rolling emerald landscape with its enchanting towns and villages reveals a country rich in ancient myths and legends; a place where the wit and charm of its people is as precious as the land itself. The lesser-known county of Roscommon is often described as ‘the heart of undiscovered Ireland’. It is landlocked between Dublin and Galway, with the Irish Lakelands to the north, and is perfectly placed for touring the Emerald Isle. The county town of Roscommon, our holiday base, was once an important farming centre and is home to a 13th century castle and abbey which is situated next to our hotel.
