    • “We stayed for one week at perfect Cloonagh Cottage...60 feet from your own little bit of the Atlantic feel like your so remote and away from it all but in a 10 minuite drive your where its all happening!...The cottage is so clean and well equiped...and you are only a drive away from the most amazing scenery...mountains and beaches.Recomend Streedagh beach...and Strandhill..visit the mountains and the Megalithic cemetary nearby..we went for The Fleadh and would highly recommend Barrys pub in Grange...especially thursday nights!...we will definitely be going to Cloonagh Cottage again..Bliss!”

    • “Stayed for one week recently in this absolutely gorgeous cottage set off the beaten track. The cottage is well equipped and very modern inside with top facilities. The weather we had was good and the views from the cottage were excellent. Well recommended and will certainly recommend to anyone.”

    • “Myself and my new husband spent our honeymoon here, as we wanted somewhere to "escape" to after all the wedding excitement. We couldn't have chosen a better place to relax. The area is quite beautiful and yet unlike previous places we have stayed in, there are some lovely villages a few miles away, offering all you need in terms of shops, good food etc. As mentioned, you will need a car, as it is quite remote, but this adds to the charm. The cottage itself is wonderful, and after exploring the area during the day, it was perfect to come back, light a peat fire, cook a nice meal and relax. You can look over the Atlantic from the garden and feel like you're a million miles away from civilisation, and yet, you have the advantage of all the mod cons we are used to in this day and age, so your holiday is practically work free! Cannot recommend this place enough, and the repeat names in the visitor book speaks volumes. Thanks for a very memorable honeymoon.”

    • “Excellent in every way!”

    • “Cloonagh Cottage was excellent in all respects. We spent a lovely week and the cottage is well equipped, having been refurbished tastefully with a very good kitchen, dining area and bathroom. Four of us had a very relaxing holiday in this traditional cottage with modern comforts. The oil fire central heating along with the open fire made it a cosy cottage. The large back garden would be ideal for children to play in, or just to have a seat, enjoying the scenery. Being beside the sea, we were able to go for nice walks and car journeys to Sligo and nearby Drumcliffe. It is advisable to have transport of some description as the cottage is a bit isolated. Mobile phone signal was not good, but this slight drawback will not stop me from booking the cottage again in 2013! Overall, a great experience and the owner was more than helpful.”

    • “Highly recommended accommodation. The cottage was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The owner was very friendly and welcoming. We had an open fire prepared and ready for us to light on arrival, plus enough fuel for a couple of nights. Coal, compressed peat briquettes and kindling wood are readily available locally to buy. The cottage has a large modern kitchen, bath and a nice shower with cubicle. The bed was comfortable. The water is adequately heated by the back boiler in the fire, or by a coin operated immersion heater if necessary - but we didn't need to use this. Central heating was also on a meter - 2 euros switched it on for 2 hours - we used it first thing in the morning then again when we returned after the day out - so spent 4 euros per day for this. Coal was 8.50 euros for a 20kg sack - enough to last 3 or 4 nights and give enough heat to keep the place warm and cosy. There is a local shop for basic provisions a mile and a half away, and a great supermarket in the town of Grange six miles away. Food prices were similar to those in the UK, with the exception of alcohol which was more expensive in Ireland - about 8 or 9 euros for a bottle of wine that would cost 5 pounds in the UK. There are nice views of the sea from the kitchen and garden, and the coast is just a few metres away. County Sligo has beautiful mountains and coastline - a recommended drive is around the Gleniff Horseshoe for fabulous views. The roads were so quiet - often we were the only car in sight. It was a great location and cottage for those who like a peaceful and rural place to stay.”

    • “Amazing cottage and location !”

    • “We travelled with our 2 boys, Tom, 3 and Archie, 2. The house was perfectly suited for family breaks, with the kitchen particularly well stocked with pots and pans etc. The entire property was spotlessly clean, a real credit to the owners! The fire was made and ready to light, just 1 match needed ! In fact it would have been lit prior to arrival normally, but as we were travelling with toddlers the decision was thoughtfully left to us ! Our trip was in early March, and Sligo wouldn't be noted for it's sunny weather in winter, being Irish ourselves we were fully aware of this, and expected lots of rain! The rough weather of the Atlantic coast and the dramatic seascapes are part of the areas' charm. You will find yourself just stopping the car to enjoy the waves and the sight of hardy surfers enjoying the fun. However, we were pleasantly surprised and had some days with beautiful spring sunshine. The proximity to some of the best beaches in Europe,( 2 within 3 miles !!! ), meant that we were able to get the boys to the beach with a bucket and spade in minutes. There are loads of things to to do and some amazing views to enjoy, (all within a 20 mile radius), and the cottage is perfectly located to allow convenient exploration. It's also remote enough to enjoy the solitude, clear starry skies, the roar of the breakers on the beach and rugged rocky shore that the cottage perches on. A genuinely authentic seaside experience ! We hope to return soon and wholeheartedly recommend the cottage to all !”

    • “I am sure most people have gone into a fast food restaurant and saw those big posters with the juicy, sumptuous burgers staring down at you - only to discover that when you actually get what you ordered, it looked nothing like the picture! This can never be said of Cloonagh Cottage! We were visiting family in Northern Ireland and before leaving Canada we had done much searching on the internet before choosing Cloonagh Cottage. It was to be our base as we searched out some family history in Donegal [which we have visited many times] as well as a chance to experience the beauty, culture and history that Sligo has to offer. Our first glimpse of what our stay would be like was when we came down the last of our winding, country roads to the T-junction - WOW! - nothing but Atlantic Ocean to the left and to the right - MAGNIFICENT! [our first photo] A few minutes to the right and we were to meet our Irish home. The white painted exterior with the shock of red beckons you from amongst it's carpet of greenery that is Ireland's beautiful landscape. You can still imagine the Thatch roof in place as you take your first step inside. The interior is exceptional with a generous sized living room complete with open fireplace, which we made use of in the evenings - nothing like a roaring turf fire in the grate and the wind blowing off the Atlantic!! Heaven!! The huge kitchen and eating area is brilliant, as to anyone who is Irish or knows anything about the Irish no matter how many rooms there are in the house EVERYONE ends up in the kitchen! The finishes were excellent, the facilities brilliant! Whatever we needed it was there - towels, linens, dishes, cutlery, dishwasher, washer, dryer and of course fridge and stove. Modern bathroom with large shower and bathtub met everyone's needs. The beds were comfortable and warm and the crib for our wee grand 'dotter' - perfect. Everything was spotlessly clean and inviting. Home away from home. We were met upon arrival and given 'the tour' as well as invaluable information with respect to fishing, walking, shopping, attractions, etc. The owner was a 'darlin girl' who came by to see us before we left, only to make sure we were happy and that our stay was enjoyable. At all times she was only a phone call away. No shopping malls, plazas or amusements here. To anyone who wants a real taste of Ireland with all the comforts of home we would definitely recommend Cloonagh Cottage.”

    Mr Portman, BEDFORD, October 2015

    • “The location was amazing, very peaceful and beautiful, our two year old daughter loved the proximity to the ocean and the farms and seeing cows from the bedroom window.”

    Mrs Tierney, Naperville, October 2015

    • “This was our second year at Cloonagh Cottage and hopefully we will return next year. Its perfect with amazing views, a few yards from the sea and the owners are just lovely.”

    Mrs Jones, Barry, August 2015

    • “Cloonagh Cottage sits at the end of a cul de sac surrounded by stunning views of the Atlantic ocean. The modern extension of a spacious kitchen, bathroom with bath and a walk-in shower effortlessly combines the traditional cottage feel with modern comfort. Everything was spotlessly clean. The garden has wonderful views over the ocean and we watched some beautiful sunsets. Total silence apart from the sound of the waves, made for deep sleep! The cottage Visitor Book reveals the large number of returned guests; always the best recommendation. We will certainly be coming back.”

    Ms Campbell, Enniskillen, June 2015

    • “We really felt welcome and there was help from the whole family in case we needed something. We especially enjoyed the fireplace.”

    • “A beautiful, comfortable cottage in stunning location and a great place to get away from it all!”

    Miss Canty, Ballymena, August 2014

    • “It was our 5th time in a cottage in Ireland and this really was the best Cottage!”

    Mr Schmitteckert, Waghaeusel, August 2014

    • “The cottage has been renovated but retains its charm. It is large and comfortable, has a nice garden out back and is a short walk to the beach. The views of the water are breathtaking. Our hostess was very welcoming and helpful. My husband enjoyed building the fires and we both love the fragrance of the peat. The neighbours were nice (especially the gentleman up the street) and our host's father is charming and entertaining -- you must try to have a chat with him if you get the chance!”

About the location


Sligo 10 miles.

The village of Grange in County Sligo is the starting point for a spectacular drive through the Gleniff Horseshoe with its limestone cliffs in the valley between the Truskmore and Kings Mountains. Grange is at the foot of the Dartry Mountain range with its distinctively shaped Benbulben Mountain which is known worldwide as the symbol of County Sligo. Created by glaciers during the Ice Age, Benbulben Mountain is home to a fascinating range of flora and fauna including a number of species that in Ireland are only found on its slopes. The county town of Sligo is 10 miles away and contains an array of shops, bars and restaurants. Its name derives from the Gaelic word Sligeach, meaning Shelly River due to the abundance of shellfish in the waters around the town.
