There are golf courses, excellent fishing rivers, quiet country roads for cycling and peaceful walking tracks in this area. Benbulben, Truskmore and Knocknarea offer challenging mountain climbs. Horse riding can also be enjoyed nearby.
Water-based activities and boat trips can be arranged locally for fishing or to include trips to the deserted monastic settlement on the island of Innismurray. Glencar Waterfall is just across the border in County Leitrim (15km away).
Sligo is famous for surfing. People travel from around the globe for a chance to test the waters around the Atlantic Coast. What makes Sligo so popular for surfing is that it has the most consistent swell of anywhere in Europe. Strandhill and Streedagh beaches are famous for surfing.
There are lively pubs with traditional Irish music and excellent restaurants and cafes nearby.
Sligo is home to the famous Hawk's Well Treatre, as well as the Model Art Centre and Niland Gallery, which contains one of the largest collections of Jack B. Yeats paintings.
You will have full access to the apartment and the garden. The driveway is shared with my parents house.
Interaction with guests
I will try to meet with all my guests. However, if I am unavailable my mum or dad will be there to greet you. I will be available by phone if you have any queries and as they live next door they are available to give their insights into the local area, where to go and what to do. Any questions just ask :)
- No smoking permitted in the building but you can smoke outside.
- No unauthorised access to the farm.
- I do not charge a cleaning fee but ask all guests to leave the property in the same clean and tidy condition at the end of their stay.
- Any damage or breakage must be reported to me or to a member of my family immediately.
