Situated in the spectacular Dartry mountains, Glenade, County Leitrim, this cottage is a perfect quiet retreat for hill-walkers and sightseers alike. As local Irish owners, we provide a unique guide to the area that will allow you to make the most of every moment of your vacation.
The cottage is spacious and charming comprising of an original stone building with a modern extension. It has a living room; fully fitted kitchen/diner with all amenities and a dining table that easily seats eight; three double bedrooms (one en-suite); two bathrooms - a shower in each; and oil central heating with a cosy solid fuel stove to supplement.
From the cottage itself are beautiful mountain views that change hourly as sun, mist and moonlight shift across the valley. You can choose from a short stroll down the lane to tougher hikes up the mountain, and anything between. The mountain peaks to challenge you are Benbulbin, Benwhiskin, and Trusk More each with pathways of varying ease and difficulty and all with spectacular summit views.
This is the heart of ‘Yeats Country’ with easy access via car to Sligo, Yeats grave, and Lissadel House. Nearby attractions also include Glencar lake and valley; Queenmaebh burial site (Knocknarae, Sligo); Manorhamilton village (with traditional music); Bundoran coastal town (with beautiful cliff walks and beach); Sligo town; and Donegal Town & castle.
Other attractions, within day-trip range, include Slieve League Cliffs (Donegal - highest cliffs in Europe and utterly spectacular, 80min ); historic City of Derry (Northern Ireland, 90min); Marble Arch Caves (Enniskillen, 50min); and The Giant’s Causeway (Bushmills, 130min).
This area of Ireland is unspoilt countryside with considerably fewer tourists than Kerry/Killarney. Historically, because of the (now ended) ‘troubles’ in Northern Ireland, areas north of Galway and Dublin have not been promoted by the Irish Tourist Board. This area is EQUALLY if not MORE beautiful than its southern counterparts and much more economical! In Leitrim, Donegal, Sligo and their neighboring counties you’ll have a vacation to remember without cleaning out your bank account.
We use the cottage as our family cabin most of the year and our children love it. They love the stream in the garden, climbing trees and getting (very) muddy and wet as they explore the countryside. The cabin is equipped with books, games, and movies. Within three miles is the coastal town of Bundoran with a beach, cliff diving board, and various water sport camps for adults and children. Bundoran also has a Fun Fair and an indoor water park (for rainy days).
