On this week’s Property Watch we take a look at homes currently for sale in Abbeyleix and Ballyroan.
So whether from the area, currently living away and want to move back or fancy a change, it’s a part of the county that has plenty to offer.
Based in the same parish, there are two primary schools in Abbeyleix and one in Ballyroan (in a new building that only re-opened in 2017). There is also a secondary school nearby in Heywood.
It’s a parish well served by sporting facilities too with two vibrant GAA clubs (hurling in Abbeyleix; football in Ballyroan), golf, tennis and hockey clubs in Abbeyleix, soccer and athletics clubs.
Between the two there is a selection of fine pubs as well as a number of restaurants and coffee shops in the heritage town of Abbeyleix.
The glorious Abbeyleix Bog Walk, which can be accessed from the car park of the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel, is also a real charm.
