The property

A great country cottage located in the County Sligo countryside, just outside the village of Monasteraden.

Next to the Roscommon and Mayo borders, this cottage makes a great touring base for you and the family to pack as much into your Irish trip as possible.

The well-equipped kitchen offers a great opportunity for you to put together a tasty meal for you to enjoy in the dining area.

Alternatively, with the sun out, why not take the plates outside and sit on the patio as you enjoy the cool summer's breeze?

After dinner you can make your way into the sitting room and curl up on the sofa in front of the oil stove with a good book or something on the telly and after planning tomorrow's happenings you can retreat to one of the three comfortable bedrooms.

Down the road, Monasteraden will tend to your basic needs but why not go further afield and check out Lough Gara Riding Stables where you can go horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, try your hand at some falconry and fishing?

Go for day trips to Sligo town and Westport and sample the great range of shops, restaurants, pubs with good live Irish music and absorb the local culture.

A great cottage that will get your holiday off to the best start.
