About the neighbourhood
The Slieve Bloom Environment Park is designated as an area of natural beauty and conservation and is one of only a few in Ireland. It is around 90 minutes fron Dublin airport/ sea port and under two hours from the fery terminal in Rosslare. We are close to two radial train lines starting in Dublin - the train from Tullamore heads west to Galway and from Portlaoise head south to Cork - these make for alternative days out.

Two miles from the local village of Clonaslee - we detail a lovely walk, taxis will bring you home from a night out ( we have names of them in the house) Tullamore takes just twenty minutes from there you have the motorway network heading across the country. From Emo you can head south on the M7.
Getting around
We are very central and make a great base. A car is essential.
