A weekend in Roscommon? You better move fast!

Those planning a weekend break in Roscommon this July need to move fast as, according to a number of well-known booking sites, rooms in the county’s hotels are at a premium.

While average prices per two-night stay (€317.20) compare favourably to those in cities such as Dublin and Galway, only a handful of rooms remain over the next five weekends.

This coming weekend (July 1st) sees the Roscommon Harriers hugely popular 10-Mile race taking place in the county town so it should come as no surprise that there was just one room still advertised on booking.com this week (The Roscommon People recommends checking availability with providers).

There is, however, a similar trend from July 8th to 10th and while there is slightly more availability from July 15th to 17th, supply is fast running out.

Visitors will find there is a slight increase in availability towards the end of next month, but many online booking sites are warning that over 80 per cent of places to stay are already unavailable.

So, if you are planning a weekend break in Roscommon in July, avoid disappointment and book now. It’s always worth a quick phone call to the hotel/guesthouse too when checking availability and rates.
