House in Sligo, coastal family home in the west of Ireland
We would love to travel anytime in the summer of 2019!
Our’s is a large, yet cosy family home, set on an acre overlooking the Atlantic. It would be the perfect home for a family or group of friends who are looking to explore this area along the "The Wild Atlantic Way". This rural location is a friendly neighbourhood, and everyone within our local farming community are very welcoming and helpful.
Our home has recently been rebuilt and discreetly extended and has all modern necessities. The Glass House has double doors opening onto the patio and back garden. We have an organic vegetable patch and fruit bushes in the garden, as well as many exciting swings and in the trees and plenty of exciting adventures awaiting all children, young and old! We’ve a friendly outdoor cat whom our neighbours will feed.
As a very keen "Waterfamily" we regularly surf, swim, kayak, collect seaweed for cooking and enjoy long walks along our safe sandy strands & rocky shorelines. The beaches are closeby, there is a village a few miles away and a wonderful thatched Beach Bar serving delicious food and hosting live traditional music in the evenings.
In addition to her association with the playwright and poet WB Yeats, great Megalithic sites at Carrowmore Tombs and her well-loved mountains Ben Bulben and Knocknarae, Sligo is fast becoming "The Adventure Capital of Ireland", so there’s bound to be something here for all tastes and desires! Sligo will host The Fleadh Cheoil in August 2015, a wonderful festival of traditional irish music, dance and more, it really is a particularly exciting time to be in Sligo in the summertime.
We’re a 25minute drive from Sligo City, 45minute drive from Knock Airport and 2.5 hours from Dublin.
We look forward to exchanging adventures with you !

About Our Family
We have a little boy and are really excited about bringing him to on holiday this summer. We looking forward to a change of pace from our norm, that is, emmersing ourselves in a vibrant European city! We enjoy the good life, spending as much time in the great outdoors as we can. We are both creative and enjoy adventures in familiar and far off places. Friends and family are special to us and we love meeting new people as we travel.
