For a weekend getaway, a family break or to see for yourself just why Ireland is nicknamed ‘The Emerald Isle’, Roscommon offers you the perfect chance to slow things down and enjoy Irish rural tranquillity. Situated just west of the Lough Ree, a resplendent freshwater lake in the centre Ireland, Roscommon is a little slice of heaven in the Irish Republic. Why not book a flight today?
Roscommon has an almost mystical quality, and offers some fantastic rural activities, as well as boutique shopping, charming accommodation, and – as befitting of a land known for its farming – some of the best organic produce in Ireland. Just a short flight from the UK mainland and other destinations, a trip to Roscommon will make an unforgettable visit.
When booking a flight to Roscommon, there are a couple of options available. The first is to fly to Ireland West Airport Knock, located about forty miles away in County Mayo on the west coast (about an hour’s drive). While the airport at Knock is the closest, it serves a small number of airlines and has only a few scheduled flights. Consequently, when flying to Roscommon, you may wish to book a flight to Dublin Airport instead – it’s a little further afield, but offers much greater flexibility when it comes to flights.
UK destinations flying to Ireland West Airport Knock are London-Luton, Gatwick, Stansted, East Midlands, Liverpool, Nottingham and Manchester. Dublin Airport, just under two hour’s drive from Roscommon, is Ireland’s busiest. It serves daily flights from a plethora of UK locations, including Southampton, Edinburgh (International), Leeds-Bradford, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and more. Wherever you fly to, why not rent a car with Expedia so you can enjoy the glorious countryside as you head for your final destination?
Roscommon Arts Centre is a popular venue in this small but vibrant town. A purpose built arts space, it offers a lively list of events including dance, theatre, comedy, music and more interactive performances. It also promotes local culture through cinematic and literary events. Once your flight lands, why not get involved and soak up the local culture?
On a clear day, as your flight comes in to land, you’ll be treated an aerial view of Ireland’s timeless landscape. Once in Roscommon, you can experience it up close. The nearby River Suck offers beautiful riverside walks, as well as coarse fishing for the keen angler, with stretches of big pike, brown trout and bream. Wildlife lovers may also want to visit the Derrycanan Bog – a natural heritage site five miles northeast of Roscommon, the bog is home to the rarely spotted red grouse.
With so much on offer in County Roscommon, and the luxury of not one but two airports nearby, why not see if Expedia can help you get a great deal on your flights today?
