“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.

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
