LOCATION
Located approximately 5.5km from the roundabout at Drumbarragh, on the N3/M3 route, and 10.5km distant from the heritage town of Kells, this property is set on the Kells or Dublin Road on the fringe of the village of Crossakiel. Crossakiel being elevated, has views over several counties. Such views include that of the Dublin Mountains, and nearby Loughcrew, County Meath's highest point, decorated with passage graves dating to between 3500 and 3300 BC. Crossakiel, with a convenience store and public houses, is served by both national schools at nearby Kilskyre and Ballinlough. The locality and surrounding area is well served by a good range of local conveniences, necessities, and amenities are catered for including sporting facilities and recreational clubs; healthcare; local retail; hostelries, churches, hardware and agriculture provisioners and much more.

While the heritage town of Kells (Aldi and SuperValu present) at 10.5km is convenient, so too is the county town of Navan at 25km. Between them, they cater superbly for a wide spectrum of services including shopping and business.

Local attractions include: Clonmellon Farmer's Market; Castlekieran; Girley Bog Eco Walk; Hinterland - festival of literature; Tullynalley Castle and Gardens; the annual JFK 50-mile walk; Mullaghmeen Forest - Europe's largest planted Beech forest; Loughcrew Hills with cairns - a complex of passage tombs are one of Ireland's most magnificent and abounding archaeological landscapes; Fore Abbey; Loughcrew Estate Gardens and Adventure Centre; and the exclusive Richard Corrigan-owned Virginia Park Lodge. This is just a flavour of what is in the area. Add to that fishing, water sports, and other water-based activities considering that Lough Lene, the White Lake, Lough Ramor and the Boyne, Blackwater, and Inny rivers are all nearby. All that, along with excellent terrain for hunting and shooting make this an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. The Ballymacads hunt the area. Many sports are supported locally through various facilities including Ballinlough and Kilskyre GFCs along with Headfort Golf Club and North Meath Rugby at Kells.

Don't want to commute, neither do you want to work from home? Now there's a remote work solution available at Kilskyre Community Activity Centre.

10.5km Kells - 25km Navan – 5.5km M3/N3 at Drumbarragh.
