The property

Sligo Town 2 miles.

Down a quiet country lane off a main road in County Sligo lies this lovely converted coach house, lying next to the owner's own home and outbuildings, The Old Byre is a pretty retreat with rural views.

Suited to a family of four or a couple wanting a romantic break, the interior has been thoughtfully decorated with light airy colours and charming pieces of furniture.

Step inside to be greeted by the centre-piece of the open-plan living space, the beautiful iron spiral staircase that draws you in, leading up to the mezzanine bedroom above.

Make yourself at home within the sitting area, where a woodburning stove can provide warmth on a cold evening, as the arched coach-style windows let in the last of the sun's light, you can settle into one of the sofas with a good book or glass of wine in hand.

As you relax, your loved one can be preparing a delicious meal in the kitchen area across the way, chopping up ingredients on the timber worktop, before serving it up when it's ready at the pretty country-style dining table.

Steal a quiet moment within the snug reading room at the end of the property, accessed through a stable door from the kitchen, where a quirky brick and wooden table feature holds several books and windows offer views out of three sides of this little corner, creating a sun-room effect.

Catch your rest at the other end, where you can find the bunk bed room with lovely touches throughout and a warming antique radiator.

Ascend up the spiral staircase and relax within the beautiful double bedroom, where a white-washed bed frame and bedside tables create a lovely decor underneath the slanted timber ceiling, all in all offering an idyllic place to rest your head.

Freshen up in the shower room on the ground floor, where a gorgeous ornate mirror rests over the exposed red brick above the basin, a lovely spot to get ready in.

Enjoy breakfast in the warmer months sat out at the patio furniture, and in the evening when the temperature drops, light the chimenea to offer some heat.

Explore your wonderful surroundings and head into Sligo Town where there is an abundance of things to do.

Visit the beaches of Strandhill, Rosses Point, and Streedagh Beach for walks and waves, with a surfing school at Strandhill so you can experience the famous West Coast surf!

Play a round on the Strandhill Golf Club before heading back to Sligo for a refreshing Guinness and getting to know the lively streets of this coastal Irish town.

The Old Byre will be a brilliant getaway for you and your loved ones in Ireland.

About the location


Strandhill 5.6 miles; Sligo Airport 6 miles; Ballaghaderreen 30.2 miles.

Sligo, one of Ireland’s largest towns is a great destination set among Benbulben Mountain, Knocknarea Hill, sandy beaches, and the green countryside of the Emerald Isle. The town itself offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants with great seafood and pubs playing traditional Irish music. You won’t be stuck for things to do while in the area; go to the races and pick out the winning horse, practice your swing with a few rounds of golf, go horse riding on the beach, or relax with a spot of fishing. Sample the local culture by visiting the Yeats Memorial Building, The Model Contemporary Centre and the Hawk’s Well Theatre, one of the oldest regional theatres in the country. Take the Queen Maeve Trail to the top of Knocknarea and be sure to bring your camera along to capture the breathtaking landscape that this county has to offer. Sligo is an excellent base for exploring this part of Ireland.
