We all need a quiet getaway once in a while, and Roscommon is the perfect place to book a hotel break situated in the glorious rural countryside of County Roscommon. This small, historic Irish town has a mixture of delightful shops, delicious food and outdoor activities that ensure a comfortable and unforgettable tranquil stay.
You will find accommodation in Roscommon to suit any budget. Book a hotel or bed and breakfast close to the centre and familiarise yourself with the local history. Buildings from all eras watch over the quiet square, whether it’s the 17th century Harrison Hall (now home to the bank of Ireland, but still accessible to the public) or even the Tourism Office, which is housed in a converted 19th century limestone church.
The only hotel in Roscommon town itself is the four-star Abbey Hotel. This graceful 18th century manor house is set in private land just on the outskirts of town, close to the old Roscommon Abbey. With an illustrious history, as well as a luxurious spa and 20-metre pool, this is the perfect place to spoil yourself.
There is a choice of other luxury hotels just a short drive away, some of which boast views of the region’s magnificent lakes.
If a luxury hotel isn’t for you, there are also a number of fantastic townhouses and bed and breakfasts located in Roscommon town. As the town is so small, everywhere is central and each guesthouse has something unique to offer, whether it’s gourmet cuisine or grand views of the romantic ruins of Roscommon Castle perched on a nearby hilltop. There are also inns and restaurants nearby, serving hearty pub grub and tasty local delicacies.
You might be surprised how affordable the hotels in the area are, but if you’re really looking for a budget break, Expedia can help you find an affordable self-catering cottage. Dotted about town and also in the local countryside, the cottages and apartments all offer picturesque views. If the country and lake air is what you’re after, why not book a spot in County Roscommon’s Gailey Bay Caravan and Camping Park? Located on the Lough Ree just east of Roscommon town, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors and take in the stars on a clear, moonlit night.
A local saying is that ‘There’s no lamb like Roscommon lamb’, and if you visit in summer you can discover this for yourself. The Roscommon Lamb Festival takes place annually on the first weekend of May. Experience the quality of Roscommon’s local produce and peruse the district’s local arts and crafts scene. It’s sure to make for a memorable weekend, but be sure to book your hotel or accommodation early to avoid disappointment.
With flora and fauna on the doorstep, and so much else on offer, Roscommon is breathtaking at any time of year, so don’t wait – book your hotel through Expedia today.
