Ireland's Lakes & Midlands


Self Catering in the Midlands & Waterways


Ireland’s lakes and midlands cover a large part of the country comprised of the complex Shannon Erne river systems wending their way through the bog and wetlands of counties Cavan, Leitrim, Longford, Roscommon, Offaly, Laois and Westmeath.

Trident Holiday Homes offers a choice of self catering accommodation in Ireland’s lakelands from the spacious chalet style Riverrun Holiday Homes in Belturbet to holiday homes in Leitrim overlooking a private marina in Dromod.

The scenery in Ireland’s midlands and lakelands is really stunning and best enjoyed from the water. There is no shortage of places from which to hire a boat or take a boat trip along the waterways.
Moorings is available for visitors for their own vessels at Riverrun Holiday Homes in Belturbet however boat hire is also available locally.
A little removed from many of the busier tourist hotspots, this part of Ireland is ideal for those who want a slower pace of holiday. Simply enjoy peace and quiet in the unsoiled countryside. 

The rivers Shannon and Erne, which permeate Ireland’s midlands offer excellent course fishing and game angling having rich stocks of pike, roach and bream. There is also plenty of wild fowl.

The midlands of Ireland are home to a number of excellent golf courses including Cavan Golf Club, the Slieve Russell Golf Course, Glasson Golf Club and Carrick on Shannon Golf Club.

Visitor attractions in the area include:

  • Cavan & Leitrim Railway Museum
  • Swan Island Open Farm & Trekking Centre
  • Cochise Stud & SaddlerS
  • Lough Allen Adventure Centre
  • Drumlane Monastic Site
  • Kilmore Cathedral

Our self catering accommodation in Ireland’s midlands and lakelands is in locations which are ideal for simply getting away from it all while still having the advantage of being within easy reach of major towns and easily accessible.
