The property

Located in Doonalton, just outside of Dromore West, County Sligo is this magnificent, architecturally designed six-bedroom holiday home, Doonalton House.

Boasting six splendid double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, off-road parking and incredible views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Doonalton House welcomes up to twelve guests, ideal for families or groups of friends seeking to enjoy a memorable escape on the Wild Atlantic Way in the beautiful West Coast of Ireland.

After unloading your personal belongings and having taken in the stunning views, take the weight off your feet by kicking back in the homely living/dining room as a member of the group rustles up a feast in the open plan, well-equipped kitchen.

Settle down at one of two dining tables, ready to tuck in as the wine is poured and conversation flows before stepping out onto the private patio, if the weather permits, to delight in a toast over a cold beverage, basking in your lovely surroundings as dusk sets in; the views of the Wild Atlantic Way from Doonalton House are simply breathtaking.

Take advantage of two generous relaxation spaces including a first-floor games/reading room and a further first-floor sitting room with balcony, perfect for getting lost in a book, a game of chess or admiring magnificent views of the coastline, before treating yourself to a warm shower or bath in your respective en-suite.

The bedrooms all consist of doubles and offer plenty of storage to house your belongings, with some residing on the ground floor which may be more suited for the older members of your group.

If you’re ready to leave the sumptuous surroundings of Doonalton House, there is so much to explore nearby.

A short drive away, you will find the beautiful Blue Flag accredited Enniscrone Beach, stretching for an amazing 5km and surrounded by a lively little seaside town, it offers a range of activities from surfing, golfing, walking, horse riding, amusements, sand dunes, fishing, swimming to a variety of summer camps that are held throughout the summer months.

You should also find time to relax in the world-famous seaweed baths, renowned for their health benefits.

In nearby Easkey, discover the historic remains of Easkey Castle, stroll along Easkey Pier or follow the famous Wild Atlantic Way, known as one of the longest, defined coastal routes in the world with stunning cliff top and sea views, in addition to a surfing school.

The local shop, ‘Bernie’s’, can provide everything you need to ensure your self-catering holiday is fully stocked or you can refuel with a hearty pub lunch.

Guests can also enjoy a day trip to the UNESCO World Heritage site at the Ceide Fields, visit Achill Island and Westport Town and House, climb Croagh Patrick or enjoy a tour through the world-famous Foxford Woollen Mills.

For those that enjoy fishing, the River Moy is the greatest asset here in the region, and with the nearby Ballina known as the Salmon Capital of Ireland, there are lots of opportunities to enjoy the river; there is also a wealth of lake and sea fishing available throughout the region.

Keen walkers will be delighted with their close proximity to a range of scenic coastal paths, where you can soak up the best views and scenery in the area.

For keen golfers, Enniscrone has the finest and most challenging traditional Irish links golf courses and offers 27 holes on 400 acres of magnificent land.

It also features the par 73 Dunes Championship Links Course, one of Ireland’s top-ranked championship links courses, a “must play” as described by American golf novelist Tom Coyne.

For something less challenging, there is also a wonderful pitch and putt in Enniscrone, perfect for the whole family to get involved in some friendly competition.

For your next trip to Ireland, make Doonalton House your home-from-home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €500.

About the location


Easky 5 miles; Enniscrone 13 miles; Ballina 15.5 miles.

The village of Dromore West in County Sligo is situated half way between Sligo City and Ballina town, and is home to 3 pubs, a Post Office, butcher, supermarket and a pharmacy. One of Sligo's many wonderful museums is located in Dromore West; Culkin's Emigration Museum sits on the site of Daniel Culkin's original Shipping and Emigration Agency, but today, features a host of fascinating artefacts, and also the Agency itself, which is housed inside the museum. The seaside village of Easky lies just up the coast from Dromore West and is a well-known surfing resort, while the long sandy beach at Enniscrone is great for family fun. A great year-round location.
