Lake Lodge luxurious units
Owner, Jacintha O Brien has converted stables and repurposed buildings into self-catering luxurious units. “People love having their own space” she says. Inspired by spending many short breaks in hotel rooms with her family, she realised that she wasn’t getting that “space” she was seeking. “The kind of space where you can ‘switch off’, look up at the stars and allow your kids to run around safely and freely”. She says it is perfect for families who want to get away from it all, take over the place and “just enjoy the outdoors and their own space”.
Westmeath as a central location
She believes Westmeath is an ideal launch pad for visitors. “It is perfect to stay in the lodges and just drive to multiple areas for daytrips because it is so central to everything”. Or if you just want to relax, kayak, fish or even swim, “Lough Owel is only stones throw away”. Jacintha says there is decking near the lake which allows people to use their kayaks or boats and she can hire a boat for people for the day. Nearby, there are Coillte forest walks, access to safe roads for walking and cycling, there’s a barbecue per house or if they want to enjoy Mullingar for it’s restaurants and night-life, it is only 6kms away.
