Several other beaches, including Rosses Point and Streedagh, are only minutes away by car. Yeats's grave is located 1 mile away and this apartment is located right in the centre of the Yeats country. There are golf courses, excellent fishing rivers, quiet country roads for cycling and peaceful walking tracks in this area. Benbulben, Truskmore and Knocknarea offer challenging mountain climbs. Horse riding can be enjoyed nearby. Strandhill and Streedagh beaches are famed for surfing...This small self contained apartment is located in Drumcliffe, in the shadow of the majestic Benbulben mountain in an idyllic country setting with mature gardens and just off the Wild Atlantic Way route.

Horse riding can be enjoyed nearby. Strandhill and Streedagh beaches are famed for surfing. Glencar Waterfall is just across the border in County Leitrim (4 miles (6 km) away). There are excellent rivers close by for fishing. There are lively pubs with traditional Irish music and excellent restaurants and cafes in the area, some of which are within walking distance. Given our proximity to the coast, this is an excellent base for water-based activities and boat trips can be arranged locally, to include trips to the deserted monastic settlement on the island of Innismurray. There is a public swimming pool in Sligo town and local hotels can be accessed for leisure facilities. On the cultural side, Sligo has a multiplex cinema and is home to the famous Hawk's Well Treatre, as well as the Model Art Centre and Niland Gallery, which is an interesting and progressive gallery. Sligo museum and county library are worth a visit, as are the twin cathedrals in Sligo town. The apartment is located adjacent to a family home and has its own entrance. It was recently refurbished. There are two double rooms, both of which are ensuites with power showers. There is a small kitchen/living room with TV, oven, microwave and washing machine. Fresh bedlinen and towels are provided. Highchair and travel cot available. Babysitters can be arranged. A small welcome pack, including the owner's homemade brown bread and jam, is provided on arrival! There are board games and books to read. For longer stays, a cleaner is available. We have a 'no shoes' policy in the apartment and provide indoor footwear. The apartment is equipped with everything a guest will need, but it is a small space and is ideal as a base from which exploring of the local area is undertaken.

Wonderful hosts, very comfortable accomodations
Family of 4, we enjoyed our stay here very much. Efficient, private space for cooking, sit-down eating, relaxing, and sleeping. The brown bread that was waiting for us when we first arrived is an indication of the kind of care they put into making your stay memorable and enjoyable. Hosts were always responsive, never intrusive. Thank you!

Genau das was ich suchte
Wir wollten eine saubere Unterkunft als Basis für unsere Fototouren und genau das hatten wir. Die Küche war gut ausgestattet aber eher für 2 Personen (was wir waren) ausgestattet. Falls ich wieder in der Gegend eine Unterkunft benötige buche ich sie gerne wieder

Stunning area
Very welcoming and the apartment is well set up. Loved sitting outside, enjoying the garden and views if Ben Bulben. Problem with the tv which couldn't be fixed as the owner was away. Also be careful of the taps...the cold side is in fact the very hot side . Also a book of information on the apartment would have been handy.

Lovely view and location, but tight even for two
Una, our hostess, thoughtfully laid in home-bbaked brown bread, jam, butter, milk and two eggs to welcome us. The windows of this little cottage next to her home looked out dramatically on Benbulben, and poet W. B. Yeats' grave was just a few kilometers away. The only drawback was that although the cottage offered two bedrooms, each with its own small bathroom, the central living/dining/kitchen room was a tad tight even for two people.

Wonderful stay
We spent two wonderful weeks in Drumcliffe. The apartment was well-equipped and nothing was missing. The area around Drumcliffe has so much to offer it was never boring. Hiking near Ben Bulben, playing golf at Strandhill GC, shopping in Sligo, and eating at Davis’s Restaurant were just a few highlights of our vacation. Let’s not forget the friendly and helpful hosts, Una and Frank! Thank you for everything. We hope that we will be back one day!

Peaceful retreat
We spent a week at this granny flat and although the owners were away when we arrived there was a welcome pack that included brown bread and home made jam awaiting us. The birds woke us every morning, no need for an alarm clock, and only left when the kitchen window was opened. It was a central place from which to explore Sligo, Donegal and Roscommon. The weather was lovely and it only rained during the night. The only downside was non existent internet connection although it was advertised, and phone calls dropping out. I answered no to value for price paid when compared to holiday rentals we have stayed at in the last year as it was so small.

Dear Stephanie, We are so sorry that your stay with us didn't live up to expectations, particularly with regard to the internet not working. Unfortunately, this is a problem in rural Ireland generally, where we have extremely patchy broadband and wifi, posing a difficulty for both local business and visiting tourists. This is equally the case with some phone carriers, and although not directly our fault, it is obvious that these would affect one's enjoyment of the venue. We're also disappointed that you were unhappy with the directions. As it's almost a year since you stayed, I reviewed our email traffic in advance of your visit and felt that we had been pretty good with providing information on directions. We have just had a system of postcodes introduced into Ireland and hopefully in the future, giving directions by reference to the postcode will make finding a property easier. We are pleased that you did find the place peaceful, notwithstanding the problems referred to above and that you would recommend it to a friend. We do our best to offer a first rate service for our little place and we will take your comments onboard and do our best to ensure that some of the glitches experienced by you will be avoided in the future. Although it's a year since you were with us, we remember you well and how lovely you were. Una

What a wonderful holiday!
The apartment is in a beautiful and convenient location just under Benbulben and just a short drive away from Sligo town and surrounding wonderful beaches. We were made to feel extremely welcome even before we arrived as Una's son sent us a list of recommended local restaurants, (Eithne's in Mullaghmore was our favourite), beaches, walks, galleries and other lovely things to do during our stay. Una and Frank were wonderful hosts and the apartment was the perfect place to stay, beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean with very comfy beds and lots of hot water. Our sons had a great time and loved playing football in the field behind the apartment. Thank you so much for the delicious brown bread and for making us so welcome!

Perfect
Ce fût un séjour génial car l'endroit est idéalement situé, facile d'accès pour toutes les activités à faire autour, les virées nocturnes aux Pubs à Sligo qui est une petite ville trés agréable. Una & Franck sont charmants, serviables, ils savent recevoir sans être envahissants et en étant française avec forcement un penchant pour "la table" j'ai apprécié avoir de quoi petit- déjeuner le lendemain avec oeufs pondus par leurs poules, beurre, lait, confiture et pain "maison" dont j'attends la recette avec impatience! En clair, c'est une bonne adresse !!!!
