 Testimonial provided by Alex, Jonathan and Emil of Bury, Lancashire:

“We have been staying at Island House with Ivor and Eva now for 15 years ever since we discovered this little gem of a self-catering property. Having travelled around Counties, Leitrim, Roscommon and Cavan for around 10 years prior to settling on Island House, we finally found the paradise we were looking for. With plenty of good fishing, both lake and river, in Cavan’s Lakeland within easy reach and Lough Oughter literally at the bottom of the drive, it was ideal for our needs with excellent fishing right on the doorstep in case one of us wanted to lie in, the weather really turned bad or if there was a football match we wanted to watch…”
