Green Rushes has an accessible location off the N4 Dublin to Sligo road. It is situated between Carrickon-Shannon (4 km) in County Leitrim and the historic town of Boyle (11 km) in County Roscommon. Carrick-on-Shannon is the largest town in County Leitrim and the main shopping hub for the surrounding area. The town provides a good range of services, amenities and education.
This area is renowned for boating, sailing and fishing, with Carrick-on-Shannon being known as the gateway to the Shannon-Erne Waterway. Surrounded by unspoiled scenery, it has long been renowned as an angler's paradise with many species of game and coarse fish available nearby. Anglers will enjoy a good stock of brown trout on Lough Eidin. There is direct access to the lake at the rear of the property.
The situation of Green Rushes with its own jetty on Lough Eidin (also known as Lough Drumharlow) will highly appeal, as it is a tributary off the River Shannon. Carrick-on-Shannon is easily accessible for day trips by boat.
Golfers are also well catered for with the Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club (4.5 km), Boyle Golf Club (12.5 km) and Strokestown Golf Club (31 km) all easily accessible. The luxurious hotels of Kilronan Castle (18 km) and Lough Rynn Castle (25 km) are both within a short drive.
There are excellent transport links including Carrick-on-Shannon railway station, 4.5 km distant, in addition to the nearby N4 (1.3 km), all combining to craft a very accessible location.
