    “The cottage is very well equipped (kitchen, washing machine).”

    The generous welcome basket was a great help. The cottage is very well placed for visiting numerous megalithic sites, beaches, Ben Bulbin, etc. Check out SligoWalks.ie for ideas.

The closest town is just a few minutes away by car, and has a good supermarket and chemist. Deer sometimes appear in the evenings in the field below the cottage, so bring your binoculars. The owners have donkeys, poultry and friendly dogs which children will love.

The property

Ballysadare 1 mile.

Situated close to the small town of Ballysadare in County Sligo is this cosy semi-detached cottage, attached to the owners’ home and small livestock farm where you can enjoy a true slice of rural life.

This lovely cottage has been lovingly furnished and decorated to offer guests a home away from home, whilst exploring the wonders of County Sligo.

This delightful cottage comprises two comfortable bedrooms, a welcoming sitting room and a fitted kitchen with a dining area, where you can enjoy home-cooked meals with your loved ones.

Outside, you can feed the owners’ resident donkeys and chickens, whilst enjoying glorious views of Sligo’s two iconic mountains, Benbulben and Knocknarea.

The small but vibrant town of Ballysadare straddles the Owenmore River providing superb fishing opportunities for both experienced and amateur anglers and is home to a few shops and pubs.

Just over four miles away is the bustling town of Sligo, home to gourmet eateries, traditional pubs and laid back coffee houses.

Sligo lies on Ireland’s stunning Wild Atlantic Way and is famed for its sandy beaches that are set against the backdrop of Benbulben and Knocknarea Mountains.

With plenty of activities and attractions for all ages, Sligo is the perfect choice for a getaway in the north west of Ireland.

Why not take a hike along Queen Maeve's Trail, which takes you to the top of Knocknarea where the queen is buried with what can only be described as spectacular views along the ascent followed by a spot of lunch in Strandhill?

Other attractions include seaweed baths, surfing, Model Arts Centre, Carrowkeel Megalithic Tombs, and boat cruises on Lough Gill.

From Sligo the wonders and delights of County Mayo and Donegal are within easy reach and certainly worth a visit!

A wonderful place to begin your Irish adventures.

About the location


Sligo Town 5 miles.

The name Ballysadare means ‘The settlement of the oak by the waterfall’ and the impressive cascading falls are no doubt the main feature of this lively village. The small town is served by boutique shops and local pubs many of which showcase traditional music. Ballysadare lies on the rail link between Dublin and Sligo and it is just a few minutes’ drive into Sligo town itself. The coastline surrounding Ballysadare is beautiful with expansive beaches at Culleenamore and Strandhill with the latter being a top destination for watersports enthusiasts, and the rounded peak of Knocknarea, with Queen Maeve’s tomb atop, overlooks the village creating an impressive backdrop.
