The Forge at Roundwood House - Mountrath Co. Laois

Pet Friendly | Private Cottage


The Forge is an original 17th Century stone building set in the grounds of Roundwood House. Recently restored and comfortably converted is comes with all amenities of a modern holiday home.

It is a single split level apartment. There is one double bed with a small settee bed in the sitting room. Its design is an unusual and interesting use of wonderful architectural space. It is filled with books and paintings and has beautiful views of the gardens. For children there are games to play, woods to explore and animals to feed.

The forge is ideally situated in the heart of Ireland nestling at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains - the most unspoilt range in Ireland and are perfect bases for touring the rest of the midlands.
