Ardtermon near Drumcliffe, County Sligo
This delightful, detached, traditional Sligo cottage has been the family home of the owner for many generations. Fully renovated but maintaining many traditional features, and delightfully decorated in the Irish country style, the cottage is situated on a working livestock farm with cows in the fields, in the quiet townland of Ardtermon on the Raghley Peninsula, and offers awe-inspiring views from the farmyard across Sligo Bay to Benbulben, and views from the front of the cottage to Knocklane and the beautiful Donegal Mountains. Set in spacious grounds and with direct access to the beach across the owner's land, this Sligo cottage is a short walk from the town land of Maugherow, and offers a real 'get away' location without being too isolated. There are many things to see and do from the cottage, such as numerous walks, horse riding, fishing and the area is well known for its flora and fauna. There are plenty of great golf courses, some beside the ocean, including Rosses Point, Strandhill, Enniscrone and Bundoran. In the evenings, why not take a short walk down to the Raghley dock and watch the local fishing fleet land its catch, then sample one of the village pubs and enjoy an evening of true Irish hospitality, music and dancing? Alternatively, why not take a romantic evening stroll to the beach and watch the sun set over the impressive Benbulben Mountain?
