Grange Lodge is a modern stone-fronted luxury cottage, located on the Strokestown to Drumsna road in Roscommon, overlooking Grange lake which is part of the river Shannon and only 2 hours drive from Dublin. Strokestown is a heritage town in the Irish midlands – home to Strokestown Park House and Famine Museum and St John’s Genealogy Centre. In these modern times it's good to know that we are doing our best to provide ecofriendly renewable heat, and have installed solar panels to heat the water, this system guarantees hot water all year round.
It is a popular angling centre for course and pike fishing being surrounded by 65 lakes within a seven mile radius. This gorgeous stone-fronted house is located 4.5 miles from town, in a spacious garden adjacent to Grange lake and harbour which holds good stocks of Pike, Bream, Rudd and Hybrids. This is an ideal touring base boasting a variety of attractions from fishing to golf and horse riding and nearby a children’s playground and tennis court.
Grange Lodge is a perfect base for walking holidays in Roscommon. There are several looped, trail and hill walks to enjoy within a short drive of the accommodation. Grange Lodge itself boasts beautiful lakeside walks. The local park, Lough Key Forest Park also holds many varied scenic walks of varied lengths.
The following are some highly recommended local attractions…
There are 14 lakes collectively known as the Strokestown Lakes. Many of these lakes have very good access and facilities provided by the Shannon Regional Fisheries Board which includes fishing stands, disabled angling facilities, access roads and car parks etc. Some offer excellent fishing while others less known but worth exploring and experimenting. Neighbouring angling centres describe a myriad of other lake fisheries and hotspots on the River Shannon.

We all enjoyed our stay at Grange Lodge, comfortable quiet, and in a very pleasant countryside, great location for visiting walking and a family get together. Everyone we met proved to be friendly and very helpful. Many thanks to our great hosts and rural Ireland for being just what it is. Hope to come back soon…
