Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Ardtarmon House and Cottages, Co. Sligo, Ireland, sleeps 30 in 13 bedrooms.

The House and farm have been in the family for five generations since 1852 with the house being expanded over the years since the 1890s. The mature wooded grounds around the house encompass about 10 acres enclosing different sections giving a number of different aspects and many varied walks.

The house and cottages are set in a quiet location in beautiful rural coastal surroundings on the north shore of Sligo Bay, 11 miles north west of Sligo town in the Yeats Country.

The residence offers tranquil, spacious and comfortable accommodation with a nineteenth century ambience, much original furniture and four large en-suite bedrooms. There is a notable feeling of quietness and peace as the nearest minor road is a quarter mile away.

The five self-catering cottages in the original farm yard and grounds include a gate lodge, a thatched cottage and converted stone-built farm buildings. They range in size from one to three bedrooms and are pleasantly and comfortably furnished, three having open fires or stoves. Laundry facilities are available.

Amenities include television, a games room in a converted stable, an extensive garden and grounds with panoramic views of the sea and mountains. A five hundred yard path through the fields leads to the sea and a beach, which is safe for swimming and from which walks of many miles of seashore and country roads can be enjoyed.

Within 5 miles there is a small harbour, many beaches and rocky shorelines, country walks and Lissadell House, the childhood home of Countess Markievicz.

Within 15 miles there are many points of interest including Drumcliff and the Yeats Country, mountains, lakes, two seaside resorts and the large town of Sligo (20,000) with museum, art galleries and theatres. Many other activities include fishing, golf, surfing, bird watching, horse riding and archaeology.

We are happy to give advice and suggestions to our visitors.
