Himself and I were the first to arrive at Rossharbour (Fermanagh, Northern Ireland), so we were given the tour and then decided to explore a bit ourselves
Our party opted for the holiday homes, three houses side by side which are identical on the inside. But there are also huts and glamping pods to choose from if those are more your style!
We were in Rose Cottage, the middle house which is also the only one that faces into the other holiday homes across the square
Each house has a double bedroom ensuite downstairs, along with the kitchen and living room and upstairs, another double bedroom ensuite and a twin bedroom, also ensuite. I loved our room – yes it was the same as the others on most things but
Look at the pretty pink chair!! Loved it 🙂
These vanity units were a dream, very spacious with lots of drawers, sure to be made good use of if you were staying for more than a few days like us
We threw on some warmer gear and headed out for a stroll
Himself immediately started to skip stones – which I have never been able to do – so politely asked him to teach me (…I whined that I couldn’t do it), it’s actually not that hard at all and whilst I didn’t manage to accomplish it every time, I was above average on successful attempts so I’m happy with that!
In the complex they have a sauna and two hot tubs up by the holiday homes with a larger hot tub near the bar and one more (which is the best as it’s wood fired) on a floating platform on the lake. This is the one we rented on one of our days there and it was awesome!
One of Rossharbours owners, Darren, arranged for the fire to be started at 11am and we were allowed access from 3pm because it would be warm at that stage
It was quite amazing to sit there bobbing on the platform with these incredible views. Of course, we had to get into the freezing lake and then back into the hot tub for that hot/cold/hot experience – oh my goodness it was freezey!
^ I could not stop laughing…because it was so cold…not really sure about that reaction but sure there we go!! Himself faired far better than I and had a good splash around when the absolute downpour of rain arrived (meanwhile I was cozy and warm in the hot tub taking photos)
The skies cleared and we enjoyed our last little bit of time in the tub before heading up to get showered, dressed and ready for supper
We had a totally yum and very moreish BBQ (the bbqs are available for anyone staying in Rossharbour to use which was really cool!), so all that had to be done was purchase some charcoal, the food and cook! Afterwards, we headed down to check out the bar, we had brought some drinks ourselves, but were keen to try some of the local offerings
On a couple of the evenings away we played this game, don’t get me wrong, the nieces and nephews were all in bed as it’s totally irreverent but hilarious nonetheless!! It’s an Irish, “Cards Against Humanity” and we had a blast playing it!
Before we knew it our few days were at an end and although we were sad to leave – everyone’s shoulders were a little bit lower and everyone’s smiles were a lot bit larger, so all in all, a very successful weekend!
Rossharbour is fantastic if you’re looking for a real disconnect from the rest of the word (there is WIFI everywhere don’t panic, but it’s just the ethos of the place that makes you want to put the phones down!) and they also cater weddings! The views are incredible and we had such a brilliant time, I couldn’t recommend it more!
