About Mark Kennedy
I Live in Dublin with my wife and children. We have owned and used the house as a holiday home since we refurbished it in 2006.
Mark Kennedy purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Mark Kennedy chose Keshcarrigan
When we were looking for a holiday home, we looked at lots of properties. This house had the perfect combination for us of private and country while close to the vibrant village of Keshcarrigan. Leitrim is the secret County of Ireland with only 25 thousand inhabitants, but only two hours drive from Dublin and an excellent location to visit the north and west. It was a single story traditional long house built in C.1800s. It retains all the charm of the original cottage while the upstairs, added in 2006, has a bright modern feel. The kitchen is well stocked and has a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and expresso coffee maker. The bathroom has a power shower.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a very cozy Cottage in a very peaceful and relaxing setting while not feeling isolated. There is lots to do in the general area but we like to stay about the garden and cottage and just relax.

Escape to an Irish country cottage for some peace, quiet and relaxation.
Facing east the rising sun shines into all bedroom windows, the evenings are cool in the cottage even in July, so we put on the turf fire. Fully equipped kitchen, toilet & shower. Limited internet access which is not unusual in rural Ireland, enough to use your mobile. Comfortable and tasteful furnishings that augmented the character of the cottage. We hope to return to the cottage again for a break as we enjoyed it so much.
Serene, beautiful, peaceful get-away in the gorgeous rural country.
Annagaderg was a quiet and peaceful change of pace. You feel so remote and away from it all, yet you are only 10 min away from villages and 20 min from a big town that has everything you'd need. Waking up to cows across the road and wandering down berry laden paths lowered all our blood pressures. I'm am certain that fairies still frequent here. A perfect place for an old school vacation in the country.
Thanks Amy, hope you come visit again sometime.
Comfortable and more than what was expected..!
Perfect base to explore the surrounding areas. People are so nuce you feel like you beling in the community. Perfect for families to stay.x
Beautiful unique home in a peaceful setting.
We stayed here for 3 days in July and had a really lovely time. The cottage is really quaint and pretty and makes for a relaxing holiday. There was everything that we needed and more provided including fresh bread, milk and butter to get us started. We have 3 girls aged between 7 and 12 who loved the stay also and the park close by was handy. Would stay another time and would happily recommend it to anyone.
Peace and quiet in a beautiful and tranquil Leitrim setting.
We arrived to flowers and fresh fruit on the table and immediately felt at home! We were cozy and comfortable all week as we explored Leitrim and encountered wonderfully gracious and helpful friends. Thank you Mark for helping us enjoy our week and this journey thru this grand country.
Excellent base for a full immersion holiday in the Irish countryside
Tucked in a cul-de-sac off one of the many Leitrim country roads, the cottage is tastefully furnished and full of old charm, yet equipped with all modern conveniences. The area is dotted with lots of picturesque lakes with picnic facilities and fishing points. For some of them a rod licence is required, which is purchasable in a town nearby. The cosy village of Keshcarrigan is a 5 mins drive away. The county town of Carrick-on-Shannon with its shops, restaurants, water activities and busy nightlife is just 20 mins drive. And if the weather is not clement, you can always decide to stay in, sip a cup of tea by the stove and admire the wonderful Irish countryside around you! We loved our stay and will definitely return soon.
