Beautiful Cottage in West of Ireland

Offered for summer rent or exchange is a beautiful nineteenth-century, 2-bed cottage in South County Sligo, 2km from the heritage town of Tubbercurry. The traditional farmhouse cottage has been recently and lovingly refurbished, with all new appliances and a new oil-fired central heating system. Downstairs: kitchen / dining room; sitting room; utility room and bathroom with gorgeous vintage tub. Upstairs: two bedrooms, both double (one currently configured as a single with writing desk).

The house is fresh, bright, quiet, warm, dry and cosy.

The Farmhouse is one of three independent houses on the property: the other two are occupied by myself and my family. Behind the houses are three fields and a pretty stream. We're within 5km of the spectacular Ox Mountains (great for hiking!), and Lough Talt, popular for fishing. We're 35 mins from both Sligo (with its Yeats connections, Lissadell House and Hawks Well Theatre) and Ballina (home of the wonderful Jackie Clarke Historical Museum). A range of Atlantic beaches (some with extraordinary fossils) is within a half hour drive, as are the world-famous Ceide Fields Historic Site and the neolithic cemeteries of Carrowmore and Carrowkeel.

South Sligo is an exceptionally beautiful part of Ireland, not as well-known, perhaps as its Connemara neighbour, but equal to it for scenery and natural amenities.

Twenty mins to Ireland West (Knock) Airport. Ninety mins to Galway; twenty to the train station at Ballymote (with connections to Sligo and Dublin).

It's a perfect base for exploring the spectacular West of Ireland and its history and culture; fishing, surfing, swimming and hiking. Also its many fine restaurants and pubs. Or, if you prefer, it's a lovely place to sit by the stove and listen to Irish weather and read quietly for the night. But you don't even have to choose - in this house, you can have it all!

About Me
I'm an Irish poet with eleven books published, and I've been teaching Creative Writing at the University of Manchester for the past eleven years. I spend my year between Manchester in the U.K. and in South County Sligo in the west of Ireland, a relatively undiscovered part of the country that is breathtakingly beautiful.
