I was aware of the remoteness of the cottage but the directions (in French) were not of great help. After driving around for some time Mary met us and guided us in to our delight.
The cottage is a country gem and the area has plenty for everyone. Apart from the cold (which can be resolved through a roaring open fire) we had an awesome week in a lovely setting. Everyone was so friendly and we were met by a bubbly host who started our week with some free range eggs and home made fruit jam, along with a nice posey of flowers. Mary also was happy to provide as much wood as we required for the fire.
There is plenty of help with activities etc from literature at the cottage. Many thanks for ensuring that our anniversary holiday (and first trip to Ireland) was an enjoyable one. We would definitely recommend this cottage.
So glad you enjoyed your stay it was a pleasure to be your host!
Alder cottage was wonderful! Mary was very welcoming and helpful as we arrived. We are a family of four, two adults, one teen and one 20 year old. We had many matches and great laughs with table tennis in the stone shed area. The surroundings are quiet, peaceful and lovely. While it rained the entire time we were here, there was still much to do around the area. Sligo and Lough Gill were our favorites. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this for a nice getaway. No wifi was a bit of an issue with the kids, but we adults were fine to unplug for a few days!
Thanks Mary, for your wonderful home and hospitality.
I am so glad you all enjoyed your stay in spite of the rain.!
As for wifi I am so sorry it was an issue, some travelers prefer to have a total escape from modern technology! however we can organise wifi if asked in advance.
Had a wonderful time, very clean, fires were beautiful, great value for money and Mary was very helpful throughout our stay. Leitrim is a gorgeous place to visit with beautiful views and a peaceful atmosphere. Would definitely stay again :-)
So glad you enjoyed your stay and lovely to meet you both
Alder Cottage is a spacious and luxurious holiday home in a beautiful and unspoilt environment. Host Mary gave us a warm welcome and provided us with tasteful organic meals. Our two children had a great time playing table tennis in the shed next to the cottage.
There is plenty to do in the North West of Ireland. North Leitrim offers great mountain walks and it is an ideal base from where to make trips to the Donegal and Mayo Coasts and Marble Arch Caves. Our children especially liked the Ulster American Folk Park in Northern Ireland. The recently opened Cavan Burren Park is also a recommandation.
Thank you so much,I am delighted you enjoyed your stay!
We had a lovely stay here - 2 adults and 2 kids (6mths and 3yrs).
The cottage is bright, clean, tastefully modernised, and very very quiet. Good blackout curtains in both rooms for difficult sleepers!
Location is great - very good supermarket 5-10 mins drive away, Sligo 20-25 minutes (I think!), Mullaghmore 35-40 mins with a nice beach and a great seafood lunch at Eithna's by the Sea.
Property owner lives locally and is very helpful (and makes beautiful Gooseberry and Elderflower jam on her farm :).
Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get away for some peace and quiet. (note: no WiFi / internet at the time of writing, but this suited us fine as we wanted to unplug for a week!)
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Alder Cottage.It was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family.
A lot of our clients prefer to get away completely from wifi etc however the library in Manorhamilton does provide access and I can always accommodate those urgent messages!
We stayed with our family at the cottage for a week in August. The house was simply wonderful and the location was perfect for taking advantage of all that this area of Ireland has to offer. Mary was an incredibly gracious host and provided us with great information about the area.
For a week we were able to relax, explore and make many day trips North of Sligo. This may have been the first time where we have stayed in a house where the pictures don't quite capture the house's beauty. Whether we were having dinner outside, enjoying a fire or having fun cooking in the beautiful kitchen, this house exceeded all of our expectations. We would return to this cottage in a heart beat.
Thank you so much it was a real pleasure to meetyou and your family
