                      The perfect vacation location for touring, exploring and relaxing. Start your magical holiday looking out on Sligo bay, or walk to the nearby fairy forts for some amazing views. Several beaches are located within 1km. Lissadell House, woods, and beach are only 5km away. We are located in Ballymulderry, Ballinfull, North County Sligo, about 16km from Sligo town.

                      Tourist attractions include: W.B. Yeats' grave (12km), Streedagh Beach and Spanish Armada (8km), Glencar Lake and Waterfall (26km), Parke's Castle (28km), Mullaghmore (15km), Sligo Abbey (16km), Eagle's Flying Raptor Center (35km), and more.

                      While Strandhill (28km) and Bundoran (40km) are the more popular surfing locations, the waves in nearby Lislarry (5km) or Streedagh (10km) cannot be bet either. Mullaghmore and Rosses' Point provide additional water sporting activities.

                      Raghly Harbour is within 2km and local fishermen can provide you with fresh lobster and crab on request. There is an abundance of rock fishing areas within 2km as well. Or deep sea fishing may suit the fishing enthusiast and we can help arrange evening or day outings with Sligo Boat Charters (

                      The West of Ireland Championship Golf course in Rosses' Point is only 15-20 minute drive (20km).

                      The dynamic limestone Benbulben mountain provides visual appeal as well as appeal to walkers and hill climbers. And while you are at it climb Knocknarea to visit Queen Maeve's cairn.

                      Whatever your interests - boating, fishing, water sports, horse riding, arts and culture - we would be happy to help you.

                      The local shop and pubs are less than 3km from our holiday home. One of the pubs, Ellen’s Pub, has traditional music sessions on most Friday evenings (visiting musicians welcome). Larger shops and filling stations are available in Grange village, about 10km away.
