Pull on your walking boots and explore the enchanting valleys to the east of Ballintrillick, where you can gaze, awe-struck, at the beauty of Benbulben in the Darty Mountains. Travel west to the coast, and you will find stretches of beautiful sandy beaches; Mullaghmore, Rosses Point, and Streedagh, fantastic for playing in the surf, and building sandcastles. A half an hour’s drive from this Ballintrillick cottage, is the exciting town of Sligo. Here, you can allow yourself to be immersed in the vibrant heritage and culture of this region. Spend a day visiting Drumcliffe and its W.B.Yeats Visitors Centre, catch some waves at Strandhill or Bundoran, and for those who love horses, there are plenty of chances to jump in the saddle and see Sligo’s luscious landscape from a different perspective. Whether you’re seeking a relaxing country break, or a chance to really discover all the delights that Ireland has to offer, this Tieve Baun cottage is sure to be the perfect base for you.
