About Miriam Carnegie
I am married with five children, aged between 4 and 14. I have recently moved home and currently live on the family farm with my husband and family. I work on the farm where we milk a herd of Holstein Dairy cows and also are tillage and potato farmers.
Miriam Carnegie purchased this house in 2000
Why Miriam Carnegie chose Ireland
We built our property and moved in 2000. We lived here for 10 years until we moved to the family farm. We built the house with a view to having a rental property when this time came. The house is located on a site that is not part of the farmland.

Cornerstones is a comfortable one storey property which is floored throughout with pitch pine floorboards.

There are sofa beds here for additional accommodation .There are three bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en suite which has a power shower. Bedroom two and three share a large oom. This also has a direct from the mains shower and bath.Bedroom two has twin beds and bedroom three has a double bed. There is a large hot press with ample towels and bedding. We are a family of 7 that acknowledge the needs of families. The house is built on 3/4 acre with mature garden and enclosed patio.

Wonderful rural holiday home - Ireland at its best!
Stunning large holiday home with many farmhouse style charms - 3 open fires and plenty of bedrooms for large fAmily get togethers. We'll be back!
Very cosy and comfortable
We had a great stay in this wonderful cottage. There is loads of space inside and out. The house has nice feeling and everything required for a very nice holiday. We were very warmly taken care of by the gracious owner
What a lovely house. Spacious, full of character and catered for all our needs. The kitchen in particular was a lovely family room and be warned the photos do not do it justice. Miriam, the owner, was a fantastic host. Nothing was too much trouble - however she wasn't any good at sorting requests for warm and sunny weather ;-)
Brilliant place to stay
We spent a week here with our son, his wife and two small children. We had plenty of space and found the large dining kitchen especially useful. The weather wasn't great but we still managed to eat out on the large patio several times. The children and the dog had plenty of space to run around and play. The children really enjoyed their visit to the farm to see the cows being milked. Miriam and her family are friendly and helpful and made us all feel very welcome. The children liked the beaches at Inniscrone (sandy with swimming pool and play areas close by), Aughris (sand and rockpools) and Strandhill (sand with a few beach pools). Plenty of walks close by and in Easky village. Sligo is a lovely place to wander and relax in the cafes by the river. The Fleadh Cheoil was on there during our holdiay and it was brilliant.
A beautiful house in beautiful Sligo! We spent a week here in this fantastic house with four children and we all had plenty of space. Everything you could need was provided and it was spotlessly clean and tastefully presented. Fishing was plentiful, playing was fun in the garden and dining in a spacious kitchen made every meal enjoyable. The owners are friendly and very hospitable. Great location to tour or walk......we will definitely return and have recommended it to friends and family. Thank you Miriam and Andrew.
