The property

This comfortable, detached cottage sits a stone’s throw from the sea, on the Wild Atlantic Way, in the townland of Templeboy, four miles from Dromore West in County Sligo. Boasting its own private access to the beach, and encircled by beautiful countryside with the backdrop of the Atlantic, this Dromore West cottage occupies an enviable position, offering a relaxing retreat for friends and families searching for a seaside hideaway in the west of Ireland. With traditional features throughout, including the flagged flooring, exposed stone walls and multi-fuel stove, this cottage near Dromore West offers a welcoming, homely atmosphere. The accommodation is set entirely across the ground floor, with three bedrooms offering flexible sleeping arrangements, a country-style kitchen and a cosy sitting room where you can settle beside its warming stove after blustery days on the coast. Outside is a garden with patio furniture where you can relax together in the evening sun, and be treated to the shady views towards Knocknarea and sweeping seascapes across the lawn. Amble along the private pathway to access the beach, perfect for quiet strolls hand-in-hand. Just two miles from this cottage in County Sligo is a traditional, welcoming thatched pub, while Drumore West offers a handful of other convenient amenities. For golf enthusiasts, courses at Strandhill and Rosses Point are well worth the visit as they overlook the mesmerising Atlantic, so you can practice your swing whilst enjoying the breathtaking views. Further afield, but still within easy reach and worth the journey, are Enniscrone with its long sandy beach, and Ballina, known for its salmon fishing on the River Moy. This lovely Dromore West cottage is in a serene location, ideal for creating memories in this beautiful area of Sligo.
