A stay at beautiful Georgian St John’s House is the perfect place to relax and re-charge the batteries.
Commanding sweeping views of Lough Ree, St John’s House is set in the rural countryside of County Roscommon in an area of historic interest, only 90 minutes drive from Dublin or Knock airports and 15 minutes from Athlone.
St John’s House is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing break, whether you want to spend your time reading books beside the open fire or exploring the Rinn Duin peninsula with its Anglo Norman Castle and many other historic monuments only a stone’s throw from the house.
There is a scenic national trail looped walk around Rinn Duin which starts and finishes at our main gate. New for 2014 is a daily boat trip on Lough Ree starting from Lecarrow Harbour.
Coffey’s Bar, which regularly has live traditional music during the summer months, and the Yew Tree Restaurant are a five minute drive away.
There is superb wild brown trout fishing in May and September. The largest trout caught here weighed 9lbs 5 ounces in 2010.
We are also an ideal base for day trips to Galway, Sligo and the Burren, which are all just over an hour’s drive.
