I think it was fate that brought my husband
and I to Roosky Cottage. Paul is from Ireland, I am from the U.S. Paul always longed to
move back to Ireland, so we made plans to retire there. We traveled back to the area where
he spent most of his summers as a child fishing for trout, the village of Rossinver
and Lough (lake) Melvin. While strolling in Bundoran, we saw a photo of Roosky Cottage in a real estate office. It
drew us in. It reminded us of what my great grandfather's cottage near Sligo may have
We took off to view the cottage for ourselves, walked down the country laneway, saw the
lake and the beautifully restored dwelling, and knew it was meant for us. As if to confirm
our decision, the day we moved in to the house a soaring double rainbow emerged out of the
waters of Lough Melvin and rose to the opposite shore. I think our ancestors approved! We
think you will too! Now we invite you to partake in the Roosky Cottage experience as well.
Roosky Cottage is ideal for vacationers, honeymooners, golfers,
fishermen, writers and artists who enjoy the tranquility of country and lakeside living.
It offers more privacy, independence and comfortable living space than a hotel room or B
& B. Roosky Cottage is a two bedroom, two bathroom dwelling that is perfect for 1- 4
persons. It is centrally heated, yet offers authentic hearths for true Irish atmosphere.
Renting your own home affords you the option to prepare your own meals anytime and stretch out in our comfy living areas.
The cottage is also an ideal base for exploring all the attractions of our
neighboring counties of Donegal, Fermanagh and Sligo.
