“This cottage was idyllic, set in a glade in the woods peaceful but not isolated as Sligo is only a 10 minute drive and had everything you'd need.”
Comfortable, warm and well equipped, the cottage was perfect.- Ms Walsh, October 2019
“Loved every minute of our 4 day holiday, did not want to leave”- Mr Mcguinness, June 2019
“I stayed at Rockwood for a week and the cottage is just fantastic, spotlessly clean and tidy, yet homely, cosy and charming.”
Mrs Jennings clearly takes as much care of the property as she does to welcome guests and ensure they have all they need, thank you Mary. The location of the cottage is fantastic also, with as much beautiful Ireland on the doorstep as you could want, yet it’s not too far from the wonderful Sligo, a beautiful, welcoming and interesting town.- Mr Northeast, May 2019
“From Queen Maeve to W B Yeats ( a lump of cheese to horseman pass by ) a trip to a coal mine and the not to be missed Marble Arch caves near Enniskillen are some of the things to look out for.”
Although I found it difficult to find ( just me ! ) once there I found a lovely peat fireburning, a cup of tea and some home made buns. The Cottage is well set in a wood. I had roe deer in the garden. It is central to everything and a nice quiet place to return to after a busy day out. I should imagine it is a nice place for walks, although it rained most of the time for me, very unusal I was told for ireland ! I would certainly recommend it. Thankyou for a nice stay David Suffolk England- Mr Bennett, March 2019
“The location was fine.”
The owners friendly and helpful. However the pillows left a lot to be desired, the towels not fit for purpose and the bathroom sink was the size of a teacup which made washing quite a challenge.- Mr Bishop, November 2018
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The towels and the pillows are excellent quality and they are checked before each stay to ensure our standards are maintained. Thank you for your comments Owner relations
“The owners, Mary and Vincent, made us feel very welcome.”
We felt quite at home immediately on arrival. Everything was as described or better, we really enjoyed the festive treats (nice surprise). We were booked in until January 2nd, on arrival at the terminal we found the ferries were cancelled, due to Storm Eleanor, until the 4th.. We rang Mary who kindly let us stay on until the sailings resumed. We would like to thank them wholeheartedly for their generosity. We would highly recommend Rockwood in it's tranquil location to anyone. Our holiday was PERFECT. Brenda and Dave.- Mr Evans, December 2017
“I had a restful stay.”
The owners were very helpful and went out of their way to assist when I needed some help.- Ms Clister, September 2017
“We had a great time the cottage was as described and the fresh made scones on arrival were lovely, thank you Mary for a lovely holiday.”- Mr Mulheron, June 2017
“Owners of this cottage could not have been more welcoming.”
A few minor problems were resolved immediatly. Loved the wood burn stove so easy to load fuel and empty ashes- Mr Sanderson, September 2016
“For me this cottage is located in the best part of Ireland.”
Forest, deers outside, fresh smell all day from the woods. We loved this place and we have plans to come back one day, eventually. The host was also very nice.- Mr Quintanilha, September 2016
“Very helpful owners.”
Lovely location. Up a country lane a few hundred yards from a busy road but totally quiet and relaxing, no traffic noise ..... Really quiet place .... So quiet young deer come out of the forest late in the evening to graze .... If your very quiet :)- Mr Quinn, August 2016
“The owners of the property were so kind and helpful.”
They dropped us to the village in the evenings and also collected us. They would not hear of us getting a taxi. We had some car trouble and they had no problem bringing us wherever we needed to go. They had a lovely welcome pack for us with scones crisps fruit etc. Cannot recommend the property and owners enough. The scenery and peaceful surroundings were amazing and our 2 dogs loved it as much as we did.- Mr Hogan, August 2016
This delightful stone-built cottage is in a quiet position two miles from Ballintogher in County Sligo.
Providing a fantastic romantic retreat for couples with surrounding woodland the cottage is near Lough Gill and the Isle of Innisfree, made famous in the poetry of W.B Yeats.
There is a comfortable double bedroom for a restful night’s sleep to prepare you for a busy day exploring the area and the rest of the accommodation is made up of the open plan living area.
The living area includes a kitchen with everything you will need to cook meals for an evening in together, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove which adds to the cosy, relaxed atmosphere.
The lawned garden is sheltered by the nearby trees which offers a chance to enjoy the tranquillity of this part of the country while you forget about the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
