    “What a great location, With a view to Mount Nephin to the left view from dinning room and a beautiful Lough from the front view from the cottage The owner kept in contact via text once a day to check everything was all ok, extremely helpful with directions.”


    One of my twins slept on the Sofa and he said it was extemely comforatable, also had an open fire in the lounge and a lovely snug room again with a open fire, the room also have radiators for those not fond of open fires. Make it your must to visit Laughardaun just a 5 minute drive to your left as you leave the cottage, pop in to Leonard's it really takes you back in time, so pretty and quaint, with a bar on one side and a grocery/shop on the right hand side, so beautiful. There is also another Pub called Murphys (which wasn't listed on Google maps), they allow you to bring food in from the Pizza/kebab shop next door, if Murphey's are not cooking food in the evening. There is also another convenient food store as well. Things to do, Rosscommon there is an adventure place for all ages and if you have kids from 7 upwards and all teenages and adults, this is a must Boff Boda, a great team building fun to do together to build a great bond with the family, also if you have little ones there is a waterfall with in footsteps of the car park, called Glencar just up from Sligo. If you a climber then a must to climb Croagh Patrick, this is a must, there is a path way all the way to the top and a lovely pub called Campbells at the bottom for a lovely rest, this pub is children friendly and serves food too. and also Nephin there is a pathway for Nephin, but make sure you are wearing the correct footwear and covered in moss on some parts. I cannot thank Sykes for all their help with adjustments, along the way and also the owner of the cottage 110% perfect. I will definately be booking with Sykes Cottage again. Enjoyable family get together.

About the location


Foxford 5 miles.

Well famed for its beautiful lakes and forestry, Pontoon is a widely popular angling destination attracting fishermen from all corners of the globe. Lough Conn and Lough Cullen are two of Pontoon’s famous limestone lakes, separated by a peninsula at Pontoon and overflowing out into the Moy River. Only a short drive from the charming town of Foxford, Pontoon maintains a great reputation as a fantastic base for touring the county of Mayo, and it also only an hour’s drive away from the well-known cities of Sligo and Galway. Following the Foxford Way is also a great way to see the region, where you can stretch your legs on the 86km walking route, part of which passes through Pontoon. Golfers will also appreciate this lovely village as it is only a short drive away from some of the top golf courses in the west such as Castlebar and Enniscrone.
