Formerly used as a hay loft, it's charm is reflected in the pine floors, ceiling and period features. On the ground floor, of this self-catering apartment there is a large sitting-room and dining-room, a separate fully fitted kitchen, a large double bedroom and bathroom. A spiral staircase leads up to the mezzanine loft, where you find an open plan twin bedroom. Full of charm yet with all modern amenities to help you enjoy your holiday in the centre of Ireland. A great place to 'chill out' and unwind, yet with plenty of places to tempt you to visit while on holiday in Ireland.
