The property

Set just 2.5 miles from the village of Ballysadare, on the owner’s working livestock farm, sits this homely semi-detached cottage in County Sligo. The impressive Raven’s Rock, part of the unique Ox Mountain Range, overlooks this quaint Ballysadare cottage and its rural setting offers guests various forest trails and walks. The perfect base for a relaxing break away, this welcoming Ballysadare cottage benefits from flexible sleeping arrangements in the two family bedrooms and the kitchen is well-equipped and the ideal place for preparing tasty meals. After enjoying your evening meal, why not retire to the inviting sitting room and sit in front of the warming open fire whilst you plan where the next place to discover is in this wonderful part of Ireland. Less than three miles away is Ballysadare where you’ll find a variety of pubs and shops to browse and just a little further is Sligo, a county town boasting many amenities, including many shops and restaurants, a theatre and a cinema. Those visiting Sligo can also enjoy a trip to Markievicz Park for the Gaelic games and then a relaxing stroll by the Garavogue River. Just a few miles away is the wild Atlantic coastline where stunning beaches can be found at Culleenamore, where there is also a pony race held every year, and at Strandhill, which is popular with those who enjoy watersports. Impressive mountain walks are available for those who head west to Dunmoran Strand and to the Enniscrone Dunes. If you head to the north you will reach the town of Bundoran and the villages of Rosses Point and Mullaghmore. Golfing fans will not be disappointed as there are a variety of golf courses around the area and the fantastic scenery of Benbulben, Dartry Mountains and Lough Gill should not be missed. A visit to this wonderful area will make it clear why the characteristic scenery of Sligo was special for the poet, W.B. Yeats. This lovely Ballysadore cottage is ideal for those wanting to discover all they can about this fantastic area.
