Description

This small self contained apartment is located in Drumcliffe, in the shadow of the majestic Benbulben mountain in an idyllic country setting with mature gardens and just off the Wild Atlantic Way route. The apartment is 5 miles (8km) north of Sligo town and 2 miles (3 km) away from the beautiful Lissadell beach. Several other beaches, including Rosses Point and Streedagh, are only minutes away by car. Yeats's grave is located 1 mile away and this apartment is located right in the centre of the Yeats country. There are golf courses, excellent fishing rivers, quiet country roads for cycling and peaceful walking tracks in this area. Benbulben, Truskmore and Knocknarea offer challenging mountain climbs. Horse riding can be enjoyed nearby. Strandhill and Streedagh beaches are famed for surfing. Glencar Waterfall is just across the border in County Leitrim (4 miles (6 km) away). There are excellent rivers close by for fishing.

There are lively pubs with traditional Irish music

There are excellent rivers close by for fishing.

There are lively pubs with traditional Irish music and excellent restaurants and cafes in the area, some of which are within walking distance. Given our proximity to the coast, this is an excellent base for water-based activities and boat trips can be arranged locally, to include trips to the deserted monastic settlement on the island of Innismurray. There is a public swimming pool in Sligo town and local hotels can be accessed for leisure facilities.

On the cultural side, Sligo has a multiplex cinema and is home to the famous Hawk's Well Treatre, as well as the Model Art Centre and Niland Gallery, which is an interesting and progressive gallery. Sligo museum and county library are worth a visit, as are the twin cathedrals in Sligo town.

The apartment is located adjacent to a family home and has its own entrance. It was recently refurbished. There are two double rooms, both of which are ensuites with power showers. There is a small kitchen/living room with TV, oven, microwave and washing machine. Fresh bedlinen and towels are provided. Highchair and travel cot available. Babysitters can be arranged.

A small welcome pack, including the owner's homemade brown bread and jam, is provided on arrival! There are board games and books to read. For longer stays, a cleaner is available. We have a "no shoes" policy in the apartment and provide indoor footwear.

The apartment is equipped with everything a guest will need, but it is a small space and is ideal as a base from which exploring of the local area is undertaken.

“a comfortable home well situated to visit Sligo and its beautiful surroundings”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2014

We spent 4 very pleasant days in this cosy little house. Our hostess was very friendly, helpful but discreet and greeted us with all we needed to start off in the kitchen including home-made bread. The area has a lot to offer in all directions: wonderful sea scapes, lonely peat-bogsas well as interesting ancient sculpted crosses. We found many interesting walks to do and would recommend staying here.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for you review. It was lovely to have you to stay with us and we're very glad you enjoyed both our property and the wonderful Yeats Country. Una
