  • Ms Walsh

    “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.

This delightful stone-built cottage is in a quiet position two miles from Ballintogher in County Sligo.

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.
