Cottage
James Tymons late19th century cottage with its cowbire and old stone out buildings is a haven of tranquillity yet only 1km from the bustling village of Gurteen. It nestles in 30 acres of stone walled fields. We have many prepared tracks leading from the house by the river and through the trees to the fields and meadows beyond, ideal for quiet walks and relaxation after returning from exploring the wonderful and varied landscape of Yeats country or attractions such as Eagles flying in the Raptor research centre and farmers market in Boyle. Check out our website tymons cottage west for special offers. In the evenings relax as we do with turf fires in the living room or stroll to the village to enjoy traditional Irish music in the local pubs (this is the heart of traditional Irish music)...James Tymons late19th century cottage with its cowbire and old stone out buildings is a haven of tranquillity yet only 1km from the bustling village of Gurteen.
