We live in countryside, close to the biggest river of Ireland, the Shannon river. Carrick on Shannon, situated 10 km from our place, is famous for weekend parties and all types of events and boat rental. Trad music lovers will also be satisfied.
The Blue room has a double bed. We can also accommodate extra people on the floor if required. There is a bathroom just across the hall with an electric shower. There is also an option to pitch a tent on the garden. Access to kitchen facilities also available.

Other Things to Note
Breakfast can be obtained for a small fee.
Unfortunately, all our inside doors (except bathrooms) are without the possibility to lock them.
We try to live in harmony with nature. So please help us to save the planet. :)
Here is how we do it:
We recycle as much as we can so we have a few bins for segregating the rubbish.
Rinsing is especially important. It prevents a smelly bin.
If you have any food waste please leave it in a bowl next to the "bio-bin" and we will give it to our animals.
Egg shells will provide calcium for our hens. Leave them in a plastic box on the radiator to dry.
Conserve energy by turning lights off when not needed and preserve hot water.
You are welcome to use the kitchen with all its equipment. Use ONLY wooden or plastic utensils for all our pans to prevent scratches. Please leave the kitchen as you found it.
You are welcome to join us for evening movies.
I was staying here more than a month. Yika and Richie were awesome hosts! They were helpful and generous.
They provided everything I needed.
At the first day, they picked me up from carrick on shannon and went to shop.
Sometimes I joined them hiking, taking a walk with dogs, going to the pub and cinema as well. I had many good experiences here.
The house was very lovely and clean, tidy, well-heated, And the blue room was also much more nicer and bigger than I had expected. There were also a desk and a closet in the blue room.
Definitely would recommend staying with them !
이카와 리치의 집에서 한달동안 지냈는데. 정말 친절한 호스트이여서 한달동안 편하게 지낼수 있었습니다! 파란색 방과 주방 욕실, 모든 것이 사진보다 훨씬 더 좋았고 춥다고 소문난 아일랜드에서 난방을 항상 잘해줘서 따뜻하게 잘 지낼수 있었어요. 호스트들과 같이 산책도 하고 펍도 가고 시네마도 가면서 한달동안 심심하지 않게 지냀구 있었네요.
다시 아일랜드에 오게 된다면 또 머물고 싶어요. 이 에어비엔비를 완전 추천합니다 :)
Yika and Richie were wonderful hosts! They were welcoming from the get go helping us with our pick-up from Carrick, to our grocery runs, and even joining them on their weekend trip to the park! They treated us as if we were family guest, with free range on the household and surroundings. My girlfriend and I also had the privellage to join them and their friends for a traditional Czech Christmas eve dinner which turned out to be a wonderful evening! I cannot recommend this couple and location more than enough if you're looking for a quiet hospitable and warm country side home, with lovely animals to boot (Viggo needs more warm though :P). Hope to see these two again sometime soon and all the best!
Que puis-je dire! des gens formidables ici! Voilà l'endroit où aller si vous voulez voir Carrick-on-Shannon et parler de la vie réelle en Irlande.
In Yikas and Richies house you feel directly like at home. They are very kind and very helpful and known where you can make the best walking tours in the area. So they are game for anything. ;) In the house lives also a communicative cat and a cutie dog.
The peaceful place is far away (about 9 km) from any town so that you have a quiete place with many nature around. When you want to make tours in Leitrim it's better to rent a car. The house is very clean and tidy. Thank you Yika and Richie for that wonderful experience!
Bei Yika und Richie fühlt man sich direkt wie zu hause. Sie sind sehr nett und sehr hilfbereit und wissen, wo sich die besten Wanderstrecken in der Umgebung befinden. Mit den beiden kann man Pferde stehlen. ;) In dem Haus leben ebenfalls eine kommunikative Katze und ein süßer Hund.
Der friedliche Ort ist sehr weit weg (ca. 9 km) von der nächsten größeren Ort (Carrick-on-Shannon), so dass dich eine ruhige Umgebung mit sehr viel Natur erwartet. Wenn größere Touren geplant sind ist es vll. besser, wenn ein Auto vorhanden ist. Danke Yika und Richie für die wundervollen Erlebnisse!
We are Irish/Czech couple. We love backpacking, hiking, gardening, reading and music.
Apologies if I am not replying to you straight away, I can be out of reach of a phone reception or the internet for a few days ;)
