Irondale

While Ontario’s premier cottage country is known for boasting a laid back lifestyle, a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Toronto’s city life, the unincorporated community of Irondale takes leisurely living to the next level.


As a small town with limited amenities, once you arrive in Irondale, prepare to be swept away by stunning landscapes, where few distractions can interrupt you as you soak in your surroundings.
