People travelled from far and wide by horseback and carriage to avail of the rest and stay over at the cottage as it was the midway stop between Belfast and Sligo. The cottage has now been beautifully restored to make an excellent holiday home decorated to the highest standards and is fully equipped for all your needs.

Whether you are planning a family holiday, a weekend break or a fishing vacation, Maggies Cottage is ideally located to experience all that Ireland has to offer.
