This is an artists cottage built around the 1900's set low on one and a half acres in Co. Sligo, just outside the village of Grange.

It is a perfect place to really relax and feel cut away from the world. If you are looking for something more unusual and special then this is a place to consider. . There are the most amazing beaches within 10 minutes drive for swimming and surfing, There is stunning scenery with mountain walking and the local village of Grange has all that one needs, supermarket, laundrette and two lovely pubs all 15 minutes walking distance from the cottage.

Although it is not a luxurious cottage it is very cosy and comfortable with good cooking facilities.It is very much an artists holiday home and is not a generic style. The downsides for those who need to be in touch, are erratic or extremely limited phone reception and no internet,, but that is balanced by calm..You can walk to the top of the lane and make those calls from there...

The two bedrooms at the back are really adjoining rooms separated by a wall and door, these are the rooms with the 2 single beds and the 2 sets of bunks, The other bedroom with the double bed is larger with its own fireplace and is off the main kitchen/dining area that you see in the photograph.

The North West Ireland region

County Sligo is one of the most interesting and non tourist regions in the west of Ireland.The county is very beautiful and there are a myriad of things to do there on holidays.Beginning with the town of Sligo itself there is theatre art and live music in the town although it has suffered terribly from the economic downturn.

Near Sligo there are megalithic tombs on stunning walks and so many secret valleys to discover. Sligo is surrounded by beaches and golf links, great pubs and a couple of good food restaurants.


Grange where Marsh cottage lies, is for the sea lover, it is for the hill and beach walking lover.

Although you have to drive 5 minutes to Streedagh beach to have your evening or early morning swim and jump back into the car for a shower and hot whiskey in marsh cottage , you can actually walk down to the shore which is the inlet and back side of Streedagh (see ordinance survey map) for a short walk and there is always something to catch the eye.

Nearby 15 minutes drive is the magnificent 'horseshoe' which is the interior side of famous Benbulbin which is a wonderful mountain to climb.

Mullaghmore is a super picaresque fishing village 15 minutes away where there is nught and day life. Day trips can be organised to the stunning island if Innismurray or indeed hired angling for thre day also. If you like surfing there are endless possibilities, Streedagh, Mullaghmore, and 25 minutes away is Bundoran where you can get surf lessons, hire boards and have great fun..

In the evening there are pubs and restaurants in Mullaghmore and there is one in grange itself called Langs
