Self-catering holiday homes in the Midlands and 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. Often passed through on the way to someplace more known along the coastline, the Midlands and waterways offer green landscapes and bogs, stately homes, archaeological treasures and little towns where you will be sure of a local welcome.

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. 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 and to simply enjoy peace and quiet in largely underdeveloped, unsoiled countryside.

Leitrim is defined by water, which influences both the county's character and the activities that take place in the county. The Shannon Erne Waterway, Europe’s longest inland navigable waterway, stretches through the county. Lovely Leitrim has haunting bog land landscapes with the majestic Shannon River flowing through - linger at the waterside pubs & restaurants, relax as if there was no tomorrow. In Carrick on Shannon, the county town, visit the Costello chapel, one of the smallest in Europe. In North Leitrim, visit Glencar waterfall which inspired the poet W. B. Yeats, or Parkes Castle near Dromahair. The rivers Shannon and Erne, which permeate Ireland’s midlands, offer excellent course fishing and game angling
