The property

Ballymote 4 miles.

This wonderful, detached farmhouse is situated at the foot of Keshcorran near Ballymote in County Sligo, boasting spectacular views towards the Caves of Keash, which are set into the hills above.

Nestled in the quiet village of Keash and superbly renovated to an excellent standard, this traditional farmhouse boasts a bright, stylish and luxurious interior.

The spacious fitted kitchen and dining area offer the perfect space to relax, unwind and enjoy some quality time with loved ones over a delicious home-cooked meal.

The cosy sitting room invites you to put your feet up and relax with a good book, with the woodburning stove adding a comforting and warming atmosphere.

There are four well-presented bedrooms, one of which has large windows and French doors to a balcony, where you can step outside in the morning to enjoy the glorious rural views.

The village of Keash has a Roman Catholic Church and a local pub within walking distance of the farmhouse, though the village is mainly recognised as home to its ancient caves, which are one of Sligo’s most undiscovered delights.

These haunting hollows open up the side of the mountain and can be spotted from many miles away.

From the cottage, it is a short walk leading up to the caverns, where the view from inside Cormac Cave stretches across the surrounding countryside.

The town of Ballymote is just a few miles away; with a friendly, thriving community and a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, it's enclosed in rich, green countryside, perfect for walking and cycling.

The town is home to the ruins of Ballymote Castle, which was built around 1300.

Game and coarse fishing is also available locally on Lough na Leibe, which has a wonderful stock of Trout, run by the local Ballymote angling club.

Ballymote Golf Club is a gem of a course hidden between the Curlew Mountains and Ballymote town.

It has become one of Connaught's premier golf experiences.

The Lake hole 7th is the signature hole set into Ballinascarrow Lake and will match the 17th at Druids Glenn as a beautiful spectacle.

The cultural city of Sligo is just a 20-minute drive away, resting on Ireland’s majestic Wild Atlantic Way and nestled in Sligo Bay, set to the backdrop of Benbulben, Sligo’s iconic Table Top Mountain.

Home to endless sandy beaches, traditional pubs, craft shops and gourmet cafes, Sligo offers a spectacular place to spend your holiday.

A fantastic choice for your adventure in the wonderful west of Ireland!
