Time Out with…Susan Smyth, owner of Computers For You and local radio presenter


What’s your idea of the perfect night in?

My idea of the perfect night in would have to involve no TV. It would involve the music of my choice, a bubble bath and a pampering session. Completely chilled out.

And the ideal night out?

It would be a night at the theatre for definite. If I had the choice it would actually be a night at the opera or even a good jazz club.

Ideal weekend away in Ireland?

It would involve a trip to Killarney and climbing Carrauntoohill before staying at the Lakeview Hotel – a really nice weekend!

What about a holiday abroad?

Ah that’s a tough one! There are so many great countries out there that it would be impossible for me to pick just one!

  It would have to be an adventure holiday and by that I mean not necessarily involving physical activity but certainly exploring the country and discovering how other people live.

Best movie/TV series you’ve seen recently?

I’m not really a big TV watcher or moviegoer if I’m being honest. Having said that, Dr Foster is one of the best TV series I’ve ever seen.

What do you do to relax?

I just chill out at home when I get the chance. Sometimes I do yoga and Pilates.

Your favourite place in Co. Roscommon?

Lisacul, where I live, because I have complete solitude. I live in a completely rural environment surrounded by trees. It’s complete heaven!
