Rustle this up in the ampley-equipped kitchen where there is an oven, a hob, and a microwave at your disposal.

After dinner unwind in the sitting room, flick on your family’s favourite film and discuss your plans for the trip.

When sleep calls, you can retreat to any of the three bedrooms.

The first two bedrooms are furnished with a spacious double bed, while the third bedroom is an endearing family room, which has a double bed and a fun bunk bed that children are sure to love.

Dromahair is a picturesque town located in County Leitrim and Guard Sweeney’s Cottage is at its heart.

It is home to Parke's Castle, a 17th-century fortified house, and Creevelea Friary, a 15th-century Franciscan monastery.

Keen ramblers will be sure to enjoy scenic walks along the Shannon-Erne Waterway, which runs through the town, or families can take a boat trip on Lough Gill.

There are also several pubs and restaurants in Dromahair, including the award winning Riverbank Restaurant and quirky Village Tea Rooms overlooking the river at Stanford's Bar, making it the perfect place to relax and soak up the Irish atmosphere.

Venture a little further afield and visit Silgo, a vibrant and creative town, full of history and culture.

The Abbey is a beautiful old structure that is well worth a visit, as is the Model, which is home of the Niland Collection.

The Yeats Society Sligo is also a great place to learn more about the famous poet, and the Famine Memorial is a sobering reminder of the tragic events of the past.

There are plenty of great restaurants and bars in Sligo, like Fiddlers Creek Restaurant and Bar, Thomas Connolly Bar, and Jalan Jalan, where you can indulge in a tasty meal or celebratory drink, perfect for the nights you don’t fancy cooking.
