rural retreat for rest and renewal

House - Private room · Sligo, Sligo, Ireland

The Space

My house is a beautiful renovated cottage set in unspoilt rural North West Ireland one hour's drive from Knock Airport (Ryanair). It is 5 mins (by car) or half and hour's walk from the nearest town of Manorhamilton which boasts a thriving arts scene and has an Arts Centre, an international Sculpture centre and an Organic centre as well as restaurants, cafes and pubs. It is only 35 kms from lots of spectacular beaches, mountains, lakes and the vibrant town of Sligo.

Guests can expect a warm welcome and cosy atmosphere in a peaceful setting. Food is sourced locally where possible and is mostly organic.

I speak French well (from living there for four years) and I am also available for teaching English during your stay!

This area has many musicians, artists and writers who have created an eclectic and interesting community.

There are buses nearby for Sligo, Galway and Belfast.

  • A peaceful setting in the Irish countryside. Manorhamilton is just minutes away and the road to Sligo is as beautiful a drive as you'll have in Erie. Bernie is a very conscientious host; she matches the environment perfectly. The room was clean and quiet, with a good, filling breakfast.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Bernie's house. Beautiful surroundings, and very quiet. She is a splendid host, and I would love to return someday. If you are looking for a unique experience with a true country feel this is the place.

About
I work as a lecturer in voice and theatre and am very interested in personal and spiritual development, singing in groups and living as simply as possible. Also interested in preserving or enhancing environments and in supporting natural health. I have lots of books, (broad range - literary masterpieces, poetry, spiritual, ecological, fairy tales etc., ) I have a piano and occassionally play a bit of piano and piano accordeon and Irish music ) My small organic garden needs a bit of a facelift but keeps me with fresh greens! Love books and films that are heart felt and challenge accepted "paradigms". I enjoy hosting, meeting new people, speaking French (if needed!), I have also travelled extensively. My life motto: you can only change yourself so don't try to change others!
