Cottage
This is an artists cottage built around the 1900's set low on one and a half acres in Co. Sligo, just outside the village of Grange. It is a perfect place to really relax and feel cut away from the world. If you are looking for something more unusual and special then this is a place to consider. . There are the most amazing beaches within 10 minutes drive for swimming and surfing, There is stunning scenery with mountain walking and the local village of Grange has all that one needs, supermarket, laundrette and two lovely pubs all 15 minutes walking distance from the cottage. The downsides for those who need to be in touch, are erratic or extremely limited phone reception and no internet,, but that is balanced by calm..You can walk to the top of the lane and make those calls from there...This is an artists cottage built around the 1900's set low on one and a half acres in Co.

The two bedrooms at the back are really adjoining rooms separated by a wall and door, these are the rooms with the 2 single beds and the 2 sets of bunks, The other bedroom with the double bed is larger with its own fireplace and is off the main kitchen/dining area that you see in the photograph.

Just a super vacation!
Two years ago I and my friend booked the marsh cottage and it was just fantastic and romantic! In fact it was so romantic that she became (short after that) my girlfriend and (short after that) my wife :-)! Therefore we decided to book the marsh cottage again and we made the same fantastic experience! Ireland’s landscape is awesome and sometimes even breathtaking and the people are super nice and always willing to help! The marsh cottage is exactly the place where you want to spend a calm, romantic, recovering and “no-mobile phone is bothering me” vacation and Catherine`s support is just lovely! She did send all needed information pro-active (no need to ask), she again gave us tips of where to go and what to see and was again always making sure that we have everything we need. Just super! So given that we have had the pleasure to experience the marsh cottage and Catherine’s hospitality twice (and certainly not the last time) we can definite recommend that you spend your vacation there!!

Christmas week in a lovely cottage near Grange, County Sligo, Ireland.
After a last minute change of plans, a frantic Internet search left us with few options in our chosen area. Taking a leap in the dark we contacted Catherine to enquire about availability. We are so glad we did. In short, the photos of the outside of this wonderful "away from it all" cottage don't do it the justice it deserves. Even though it's only a few hundred yards from the main Sligo road it may as well have been in the middle of no-where. The communications, directions, advice and guidance provided beforehand were more than we could have hoped for and helped us choose what we needed to bring along. On arrival we found the cottage had been fully aired, the living area stove had been set ready for use (with a starter fuel supply), the storage heaters had been turned on, there was clean linen on the beds (new in the master bedroom) and the whole place had been cleaned from top to bottom. Essentially the cottage was as described. We made it our home and base for a week and it served us very nicely. Leaving the stove ticking over whilst out kept the place warm and cosy given we were subjected to two back to back storms (Barbara and Connor). This is a lovely retreat, its not an ultra modern house, indeed the lack of phone signal indoors meant our older tennage children were forced to talk to each other, play board games and even "read" when we weren't out walking, horse riding, at the local surfers beach or visiting family in Sligo and the surrounding area... this was a welcome change and helped us enjoy a traditional family Christmas. We can't Catherine enough, it ticked all the boxes for us and we look forward to staying there again, assuming it's available :-)

Dear Andrew and Maureen, I smiled when I read about older teenagers being forced to talk to each other. Marsh Cottage does that and we have found the same with our family. Thank you for your kind words, yo were lovely people to have to stay.

Very special holiday house
We had the most perfect weeks holidays at Marsh Cottage. The house is just beautiful - it was a privilege to stay there, surrounded by the owner's beautiful artwork and furnishings. With no television or wifi, it was great to get away from screens for a week. Apart from horse riding lessons in Bundoran, the kids spent their time exploring the field (great excitement at finding an Irish hare hiding in the grass), climbing trees, finding fossils at Streedagh Beach and doing a bit of reading and crafts in the evenings. The house was really warm and cosy and very comfortable, and the kids loved the bunk beds in their bedroom. We spent many a blissful moment sitting on the bench at the front of the house listening to the birds singing - pure relaxation. The house was perfect for exploring the region, with stunning views of Benbulben on the drive to the main road. Highly recommended if you need a break from busy, modern life. From initial booking to leaving, the owner was very helpful and welcoming.

quaint little cottage in a remote rural setting
The service I received from both tripadvisor and the owner were' second to none', in fact I was greeted on arrival by the lovely owners who showed me about the cottage and advised me on the things to do and see in the surrounding area. Although the cottage may not be to everyone's taste it certainly catered to mine. We spent days lying at the beach, nights around the barbecue and rounded this off with a few hot whiskies in front of the open fire. The cottage is quite central to beaches etc and a short drive to Grange will take you to shops, pubs, restaurants etc I loved the relaxed atmosphere about this little place and although some may not be able to live without their phone, I could. Loved it!!

*beautiful original cottage*
I stayed with two of my friends in this lovely old cottage and we had a great time. The Character of this old cottage is amazing, it brings you back into a different time with the low doors (ceiling is very high) the stone fire place and other character features. The views to the back are stunning, rolling hills and lovely countryside. The perfect place for a quiet and relaxed break, no noise, no direct neighbours, we just loved it. Also it is just a stroll away from the water, where you have amazing views to Mullaghmore castle. Strandhill is just a 25 min drive away and Bundoran even closer, about 15min drive, which is perfect for surfing. Big Thanks to Catherine for everything.

About the neighbourhood
Grange where Marsh cottage lies, is for the sea lover, it is for the hill and beach walking lover. Although you have to drive 5 minutes to Streedagh beach to have your evening or early morning swim and jump back into the car for a shower and hot whiskey in marsh cottage , you can actually walk down to the shore which is the inlet and back side of Streedagh (see ordinance survey map) for a short walk and there is always something to catch the eye. Nearby 15 minutes drive is the magnificent 'horseshoe' which is the interior side of famous Benbulbin which is a wonderful mountain to climb. Mullaghmore is a super picaresque fishing village 15 minutes away where there is nught and day life. Day trips can be organised to the stunning island if Innismurray or indeed hired angling for thre day also. If you like surfing there are endless possibilities, Streedagh, Mullaghmore, and 25 minutes away is Bundoran where you can get surf lessons, hire boards and have great fun.. In the evening there are pubs and restaurants in Mullaghmore and there is one in grange itself called Langs
