Geaglum Cottage/ Gypsy Caravan

about the property

Sweet thatched traditional Irish holiday cottage on the shores of a lake, it even has its own traditional gypsy caravan so sleeps 5 in total. One of the best preserved traditional cottages in Fermanagh or Northern Ireland.

'We felt as if we had, literally, stepped back in time into a chocolate box thatched cottage, with Romany caravan attached, all restored with attention to historical detail but infused with the on-trend fashion for all things vintage' Catherine Mack reviews for Irish Times. Read the full review here

'I don't see how anyone could fail to be charmed by Geaglum Cottage... pushing open the red door is like stepping between the pages of a country interiors magazine.' Sally Shalam, reviewing for the Guardian. Full review here.

'This is the ideal solution for the capricious: if you get tired of the pretty thatched cottage with its 1950s-style décor and open fire, outside is a Romany caravan with a double bed, quilts and a stove.' Chosen by the Independent in their 'Six Best Romantic Rentals'

See real holiday photos of this gorgeous Irish cottage. Two amazing places to stay for the price of one here at Geaglum Quay on beautiful Lough Erne in Fermanagh, Ireland. Enjoy this beautiful Irish gypsy caravan, or sleep in the cute traditional cottage next to it - you get both, and a third of an acre of private garden. Heaven for watersports fans, or just chilling out in a peaceful area. A great place for families, or, as it is such a romantic place we think it would make for a really special Honeymoon. Stay year round as the caravan has stove, and the cottage enjoys both open fire and under-floor heating. Easy walk (under half mile) to lovely, little used shingle beach. Aerial view of local area or extra photos, or video of local area. Actual guest photos here and more photos from Geaglum or a video. This really is the perfect Irish gypsy caravan holiday - and with your own traditional Irish thatched cottage! Extra photos of this adorable Irish thatch cottage.

Considering a two-centre holiday? You may want to stay at one of our other Irish cottages en-route - secluded Croaghacullion and eco-conversion An Teach Eile. Or if driving over from UK we have a number of beautiful properties near to Fishguard and Holyhead in Wales.

Beautiful cottage. Children loved the gypsy caravan and enjoyed cycling the quiet roads surrounding the cottage. Lots to do in the local area for children and adults.
