Places of Interest & Things to Do in the Area

Westmeath is not normally considered an end destination and a lot of our guests tend to be on their way West. But almost without exception they tell us that if they had only known, they would have stayed for longer.

Guests staying at Lough Bishop House are ideally placed for visiting a wide choice of scenic and historic visitor attractions in Westmeath and neighbouring counties. The area abounds with pre-historic sites, monastic ruins, ancient castles and magnificent gardens that are perfect for a day out and about … and what better end to a busy day’s sight-seeing than to return to the peace and tranquility of Lough Bishop House, a delicious meal perhaps and a truly restful night’s sleep.
