About Sheila McDermott

We are a family of 4, living on a working farm in Sligo.

We have been happily involved in the Self Catering business since 2006 with our very popular Beach House in Aughris. In 2012 we bought and renovated another property The Snug in Dunkineely, South Donegal, for our own use and also as a Holiday Let.

In 2017 we added The Landmark ( also in Aughris, 1km from Beach House) to our Holiday Let offerings. This has two separate units ( 3bed and 1bed), is also of a very high standard and is also advertised on this site.

Both properties are in wonderful locations on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Sheila McDermott purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sheila McDermott chose Sligo

We purpose-built the house with separate annex for self-catering in 2006 because we know that it is situated in a fantastic location, beside the sea with lovely sandy beaches as well as the ever-popular Beach Bar.This is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The location is truly a walkers paradise. Many of our guests are families that bring their pets and spend their days on the many sandy beaches around. Aughris is ideally located for people wanting to explore the North West of Ireland. Some guests do day trips, maybe Donegal one day, Achill the next with some R&R in between. Others spent their time walking, fishing, surfing or golfing in the different hotspots around (Enniscrone, Strandhill, Rosses Point).

What makes this apartment unique

The house is just two minutes walk to 2 miles of sandy beaches. A five minute walk takes you to the very popular Beach Bar so you don't have to worry about transport. The Restaurant at the Beach Bar is open at weekends and nightly in High Season and is very popular with our guests.

The pub is open all year around with entertainment in high season.

This is an authentic old-world thatched pub and we are very fortunate to have such a popular establishment so close the the Beach House.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Extracts from TripAdvisor reviews...

It was great. We had such a wunderful time. We will come back next year in September for ten days. One of th loveliest places we ever been.

Amazing Waves! Beautiful beaches!


Had a lovely time at the beach house the accommodation was great, this was our second visit. Shelia the owner was very helpful during our stay. The house is very spacious with great coal fires for the cold nights and beautiful views. The beach is a two minute walk from the house, there is also a little pub the beach bar which sells great food & also has entertainment.

Beautiful house in a fantastic place.

  • 5 of 5

Our third visit to this beautiful house and annex in a lovely place. A short walk to the beach, the local pub / restaurant is 10mins away and serves really nice meals and the seaweed baths at Strandhill are fantastic. We've stayed in both the house and annex and both are well equipped, very clean and tidy and so peaceful. Thank you Sheila for this fabulous place and a superb visit. Stuart and Margaret.

A peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

A lovely comfortable cottage in a great location. Facilities were fine, no sea view unless you went outside that is but a short walk brought to a lovely beach. Would highly recommend frio couples wanting a "get away from it all" break. A short walk took you to a great beach front pub serving excellent meals.

Well appointed, clean and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Sheila, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. The 'cottage' is bright, clean and has everything you need. The bathroom is big and well appointed. It was great to say hello to the cows and calves who came near the fence every day! The morning walk to the beach (5 min away) with our dog was so great, I really miss it!

This is such a peacefull and great location you can really relax, enjoy the views and have a great holiday!

Special interest holidays:

Couples or groups of 4 or less might like an opportunity to explore both Sligo and Donegal during your holiday. If so then ( subject to availability ) you can split your holiday between the "Beach House" at Aughris and "The Snug" at Dunkineely.

The 2-bed house at Dunkineely sleeps 4, it is also a coastal property. For more details on The Snug, see Owners Direct property ref IR616.


2 minutes walk to the nearest sandy beach. Most families with young children stay there. For walkers you can continue your walk from there to beautiful Dunmoran beach or to the scenic fenced in walkway at Aughris Head.

For surfers, it is 10 miles to Easkey, although many surf at Aughris or at nearby Trawee beach


Knock Airport - 30 miles. Ryanair continue to add more routes from Knock to UK, France, Germany and Spain.

Dublin Airport - 120 miles.

A car is essential here - for going to the shop etc.

All guests walk to the Beach Bar as its just a short stroll across the beach or laneway.


Shop with groceries/petrol - 3 miles.

Templeboy village with Church. Shop/post office - 4 miles.

Dromore West Village - Shops, ATM, Butcher, Chinese takeaway, pharmacy - 5 miles.

Sligo/Ballina towns both 15 miles in opposite directions.

Further Details:

This is an ideal location of people who want a quiet, scenic, coastal location with a good range of activities. There are great shoreline or hill walks nearby.

Surfing at Easkey is highly recommended. Many guests do the 30 minute walk to the top of Knocknarea mountain for panoramic views. Fishing for Mackerel at Augrhis Head or go deep Sea fishing from Enniscrone. Boat trips to Inismurray Island. Visit caves, tombs, megalithic sites. Sligo-Way walkways.

Enjoy an evening in by an open fire or stroll across to the Beach Bar and sample some excellent Guinness!
