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 Annaghaderg

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

i have just returned to Dublin after having a great relaxing time in your wonderful stone cottage. I loved meeting the "locals" in the nearby Gerties Pub. Also the donkeys and cows all seemed happy to be free like me. I can not wait for my return visit in September. You may share my comments with your enquirers. Hugh

Beautiful unique home in a peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely spacious well situated for area attractions

  • 5 of 5

Hi Mark, Thank you for the flowers and fruit basket, they were unexpected and appreciated by all. We enjoyed our stay in your warm & cozy home, it was central to the sites we planned to see (thanks for the brochures on the area & flower book -came in handy) and the area is lovely. The bunk bed was an adventure I haven't had in many years but quite comfy! Melanie
