The North West Ireland region

Described as the "Land of Heart's Desire" in his early poems, the county of Sligo is depicted by the well known Irish poet, W B Yeats as wild and romantic. It is full of beauty, archaeology and folklore.

County Sligo's beautiful scenery was an inspiration for Yeats, who is buried at Drumcliffe Churchyard, under loaf-shaped Benbulben Mountain. A beautiful drive, running north from the town of Sligo, brings the visitor deep in Yeats country.

Sligo is an ideal destination for the outdoor enthusiast.


Sligo's unique landscape offers a huge range of activities including championship golf courses, surfing and horseracing. Lissadell House, once home to countess Markievicz, is a good family attraction, with a lovely beach nearby. The mountains of Benbulben and Knocknarea are a spectacular backdrop for hiking enthusiasts and the immediate area also offers a variety of easy by awe-inspiring coastal cliff top and peninsula hill walkways.

"Quaint, peaceful and full of character"

"Sligo Gem"

This is a lovely old school house that was wonderfully restored by Irish Landmark Trust. It is very comfortable and it was well stocked for our self catering needs. We know this part of south Sligo very well and found the location great for walking in the Ox mountains and drives over "Ladies Brae" to the coast at Templeboy and Easkey. The river outside the gates is so pretty - think it's called the Owenbeg - makes you think you are so far away from everything - when in fact you are only a 20 minute drive away from Sligo town. We couldn't fault this house and it's lovely gardens, one morning we woke up to see a deer on the lawn! Sligo is a county that doesn't seem to get the interest of tourists - well I can't see why - it has everything - but most of all lovely people! The woman who manages this house is really lovely and the house is immaculate - you can eat your dinner off the floor (if that's your thing!)

Thank you for this lovely review. Sarah is indeed one of Irish Landmark's wonderful House Managers. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay at the Schoolhouse.
