Walk from this quiet residential area adjacent to the Garavogue River, into Sligo town in less than 10 minutes. We are just 20 mins walk from bus and train station. Stay a while if you love traditional Irish music or poetry, or just beautiful landscapes. We can arrange pick-up at the river, 2 mins walk away, so you can travel by canoe or boat to travel to Lake Isle of Innisfree.

The space

Recently modernised 4-bedroom house with two bathrooms and stove in living area. Central heating throughout. The house is spacious and the room available is a very large bedroom with private bathroom.

The house is 2 minute walking distance to the lovely Garavogue River, a children's park and 'Outdoor Gym'. Also within 8 minute (literally!) of the town.

Sligo is a great base for getting to the sea (Rosses Point and Strandhill about ten minute drive, buses to both); and of course close to Yeat's most loved and written about locations. Great music in the local pubs.

Walking distance (about 20 mins) to train and bus station; local bus at bottom of street. We are cyclists and there is a locked shed if you want to store you bike at night.

Guest access

Breakfast served in the morning - nothing fancy, from porridge to scrambled egg, toast or just juice!

Interaction with guests

We enjoy having guests and have hosted guests from France, Germany, Italy, Australia and Oman! It's rare that we have guests that we don't have a cup of tea with, or a glass of wine with in the evening. Some even timed their visit to be able to enjoy our home-grown salad! For guests that arrive by bus or train, we usually drive you to local spots you might want to enjoy, like our local mountain for a spot of hill walking or Yeat's grave out at Drumcliffe.

Other things to note

We have a visiting cat (known as Berbi) who spends time in our living room and we recently added Teddy, a cute, little mutt of a rescue dog, to the family.

There's a great canoeing company (adventu(URL HIDDEN) that will bring the canoes to the Garavogue River just 5 mins walk from us - and are wonderful guides!

We loved staying at Patricias. She and her daughter are very welcoming and we had a lot of very nice and funny conversations. The room and bathroom was very cozy and clean. Patricia made sure we had everything we needed. We highly recommend her place and would love to come back one day.

My stay at Patricia's couldn't have been nicer. Her place is on a quiet street a few minutes walk from the center of town and Patricia is as welcoming and entertaining host as one could wish for. She was extremely helpful with local information and even offered to drive me to a local trail head when the weather got too wet for pleasant cycling. If you are visiting Sligo a stay at Patricia's is highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at Patricia's place. Patricia was not there, but her sister welcomed us and made us feel at home. The place is in a great location within walking distance to town. The house is clean, cosy and the room is very spacious. We would highly recommend staying if you are visiting Sligo.

Patricia's house is walking distance from city centre. We parked the car close to the house walking into town. Patricia's house is nicely renovated. Bedroom was perfect for our stay in Sligo.

We had a warm welcome by Patricia's sister. She put on the stove and showed us the beautiful big house. We spend two nights and cooked in once. Towels available and city center lies within walking distance while having the lake (and other nature / activities / hiking and so one!) so close to the home.

Great stay at Patricia's lovely house in Sligo. Patrica was out of town, but arranged for her sister to be our host, letting us in the house and getting us set up for our stay. Beautiful short walk into town along the river with with loads of restaurants and pubs in easy walking distance. Sligo was a great choice for 2 first time visitors to Ireland.

Patricia was a very kind and friendly host. I didn't have so much information of travelling Sligo. But she gave me many infomations and good plans. So I enjoyed my staying Sligo. Her house was really comfortable and close to centre of Sligo.

Patricia User ProfilePatricia is a superhost.

I am a somewhat travelled woman, having living in the US for 10 years, Britain and now back home in Ireland. I've worked in a number of different areas, some interesting like wind energy development, and some not...;-) I am now teaching.

I used to love travelling by myself to places like Central America and the Middle East, but now I travel with my Mother (the kind of 82 year old that everyone loves, not the crotchety kind!), and my daughter (who plays the fiddle and tin whistle, but not on holidays...), so I'm a little more conventional in my choice of holidays now.
