Interaction with Guests
If guests desire it they can be met and given advice about the local area. Otherwise we are at the other end of the phone.
The cottage is located in a beautiful, secluded part of the West of Ireland but we are lucky to have some local amenities. The front garden runs down to a clean and safe beach suitable for swimming, water sports and walking. The Beach Bar is a 3 min walk from the house and you will find food, traditional music and a great atmosphere. There is also a tiny campsite beside the house that caters mostly to small groups and families. Very nearby are some great surfing spots, Easkey and Stranhill being the most famous. We are also close to the Ox Mountains, a stunning location for cycling and walking.
Sligo town is about a 30 min drive from the house and guests will find a wide variety of activities and places to eat there.
A little further in North Sligo guests can visit Yeats grave and see the stunning landscape that inspired much of Yeats' work.
Unfortunately there is no public transport so guests would have to have/rent a car. Walkers or cyclist are also welcome.
Other Things to Note
Guests should note some things -
The road leading to the house is quite rough and requires careful driving if guests wish to drive right up to the house. Otherwise guests can park in the local pub and walk to the house (3 min walk)
The water in the house is not suitable for drinking, but is perfectly safe to cook and wash with.
