Getting around
The house's location makes it ideal for day-tripping by car to pretty much all of the island.
The house is only 10 minutes from Portlaoise and Portarlington train stations. A reliable and reasonable cab service can be recommended.
From Portarlington, Dublin is under an hour. Portarlington also gives you direct rail access to Galway and Westport.
From Portlaoise, there are direct services to Cork and Killarney. Train travel is a great way to see the country.
