Overview

About the property

A secluded comfy 2 bedrooms cottage with enclosed garden awaits you in the heart of the West Ireland - only 20 minutes from Knock Airport. Nestled under the Ox Mountains and a 5 min drive from Tubbercurry, you will find a peaceful bolt hole with 2 bedrooms (1 double bed and 1 bunk bed & 1+1 guest bed). The living room has a traditional stone fire place and there is a very large fully furnished kitchen leading into the garden. There is a small shower room and WC and utility area.

The location is perfect for a relaxing break and is in easy reach of the River Moy for fishing, Ballina, surfer beaches of Easkey and Inishcrone. The Wild Atlantic way is on your doorstep which is perfect for cyclists. It's a 20 minute drive into Sligo town which has a theatre, cinema and historical sites of interest. Beyond that you are in wonderful Yeates country and it's breathtaking scenery!

About Sara

My family are from Co Sligo and we can trace our lineage for over 510 years!

I am the last of the family and maintaining a link to this area and sharing the magic of the West is something I want to ensure is passed on to my children - hence why we bought this cottage

Why Sara chose Tobercurry

It's in a perfect spot! Far enough from the town for privacy and in easy reach of everything you need

What makes this cottage unique

It is a traditional cottage and the type of dwelling my grandfather and his parents were raised in. The fireplace is magnificent and I bet there were many yarns told by the light of the fire. Irish fairies are known in these areas and if you take a photo and see a bluish/green light, you might just have caught one!

Cosy, homely and peaceful cottage with character

  • 5 of 5

5 stars to Sara for ease of booking, speed of response and her helpful and detailed information and tips before we even arrived at the cottage. On arrival, everything was exactly as described. My husband and I plus our 4 children have just spent 3 nights at the cottage. We have had a super break, instantly felt at home and enjoyed being in the rural surroundings but still not too far from the town. It was a great value break - thanks so much and good luck with this new venture.

Comfortable and quaint cottage

  • 3 of 5

It was a very quiet and relaxing stay for the 4 of us. There was enough space for everyone to spread out during the week, even though the bathroom was rather tight. Basic cooking tools along with coffee/tea are provided. The cottage has character and is at the end of the road. The charge for electricity is minimal. We had initially planned to spend more time at the cottage but because driving around took so much time we were pretty much there for dinner, until the next morning. Also I appreciated the fact that the guests are responsible for cleaning as we always make sure we clean up before we leave any lodging. It is remotely located so you need a car. A small car.

A couple of things I did not know until later:

1. the owner lives in UK. And since the cell signal is rather poor at the cottage, I used my sometimes-working-wifi to contact her most of the time, but that meant it took some time to get answers as well. Also only one set of keys--we almost got locked out, because the door swings shut sometimes. I believe this type of door is common in Europe. But those from North America would find it difficult to get used to for a while.

2. you have to take the garbage with you at the end. This was not a big issue except for the fact that the dump is about 30 minutes away in Sligo. Unfortunately for us, we were not going that way when we left, so we ended up driving over 45 minutes with a stinky bag of garbage in the back seat (since the trunk was full with our luggages)! Also it is 8 Euro per bag for garbage.

I recommend this cottage to a family with small children or up to 4 adults. And only if you can swing by a garbage collecting site after you check out.

A peaceful and relaxing haven

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, our experience has been wonderful. Excellent service via the website and emails including thorough directions and introduction to the house. Fantastic location and properly equipped with everything necessary for a straightforward self-catering break. The whole family had a brilliant holiday in Sligo and we look forward to a return visit in the future.

Cozy little cottage with beautiful flower gardens!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great stay in this off the beaten track cottage! The cottage has a nice homey feel with the nice kitchen area with wide open windows to the wonderful backyard. The location of this cottage made it quite easy for us to do a day trip off to Sligo area and a surprisingly interesting trip to "Flying Eagles" a bird sanctuary no more than 25 minutes away. We had great communication with Sara about getting to the cottage and setting up for our few days. Would definitely come back for another visit!

it was so nice to feel like you were truely home, even though you wereust a guest

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and peat "turf" fire was a delight. Then to have a location that truly was in the country with birds singing, cows mooing, and sheep baaing really helped embedded that Ireland i

s more than just a beautiful country, but gave insight into what influenced the character of the place.
