About Miriam Carnegie
I am married with five children, aged between 4 and 14. I have recently moved home and currently live on the family farm with my husband and family. I work on the farm where we milk a herd of Holstein Dairy cows and also are tillage and potato farmers.

Why Miriam Carnegie chose Sligo
We built our property and moved in 2000. We lived here for 10 years until we moved to the family farm. We built the house with a view to having a rental property when this time came. The house is located on a site that is not part of the farmland.

Cornerstones is a comfortable one storey property which is floored throughout with pitch pine floorboards. The kitchen cum livingroom is at the centre of the house which has a stone inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. Off the kitchen there is a separate sitting room and dining room. There are sofa beds here for additional accommodation .There are three bedrooms. The main bedroom has an en suite which has a power shower. Bedroom two and three share a large oom. This also has a direct from the mains shower and bath.Bedroom two has twin beds and bedroom three has a double bed. There is a large hot press with ample towels and bedding. We are a family of 7 that acknowledge the needs of families. The house is built on 3/4 acre with mature garden and enclosed patio.

Four of us were traveling in this part of Ireland for the first time. It was a very nice rural location. A car is a necessity. Miriam was very hospitable and helped us out with all our requests.
Thankyou for your lovely review. We are glad to have met you and it was very nice having you to stay.
Lovely house in beautiful grounds
We recently stayed in Cornerstone as a group of 6 Anglers. The house is close to Easkey village and perfect for fishing Easkey river if conditions suit. Miriam was an excellent host and very helpful..we will definitely book again
Roomy, beautiful country home!
Andrew and Miriam have a wonderful home! We are two couples from the US traveling around Ireland and this was a wonderful place to treat as our first "home base" of the trip! The area around Easkey/Sligo is beautiful and really gave us a nice opportunity to see the Irish countryside. The house has great character! We loved it!
Brilliant property and super friendly hosts
Miriam was very helpful and accommodating for our needs. Nothing was too much trouble.
The house was beautifull.
A Lovely Stay in Ireland
Really lovely property with very helpful owners prior, during and after our trip. The house is clean, cosy, very well provisioned and is in a perfect location for all this wonderful region has to offer. Ideal for a large family with plenty of living and outside space.
