About Sheila McDermott
We are a family of 4, living on a working farm in Sligo. We have been happily involved in the Self Catering business since 2006 with our very popular Beach House in Aughris. In 2012 we bought and renovated another property The Snug in Dunkineely, South Donegal, for our own use and also as a Holiday Let. In 2017 we added The Landmark ( also in Aughris, 1km from Beach House) to our Holiday Let offerings. This has three separate units ( 3bed and this 1bed Upside Down House, and Cosy Cottage), All of these are advertised on this site. All of our properties are in wonderful locations on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Sheila McDermott purchased this House in 2016
Why Sheila McDermott chose Aughris
We bought this house and undertook a large rennovation project in 2016/2017 because of both its location and character. We are in the business since 2016 and know that is really all about location and this spot is simply unbeatable as the reviews from previous guests will attest to. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The location is truly a walkers paradise. Many of our guests are families that bring their pets and spend their days on the many sandy beaches around. Aughris is ideally located for people wanting to explore the North West of Ireland. Some guests do day trips, maybe Donegal one day, Achill the next with some R&R in between. Others spent their time walking, fishing, surfing or golfing in the different hotspots around (Enniscrone, Strandhill, Rosses Point).
What makes this House unique
As well as the location, this house just oozes charm . Apart from the wonderful location, the kitchen cum living room is spacious and bright with wonderful views. The bedroom is especially spacious. The house is just 15 minutes walk to 2 miles of sandy beaches. A 10 minute walk takes you to the very popular Beach Bar so you don't have to worry about transport. The Restaurant at the Beach Bar is open at weekends and nightly in High Season and is very popular with our guests. The pub is open all year around with entertainment in high season. This is an authentic old-world thatched pub and we are very fortunate to have such a popular establishment so close to our Holiday Lets.

Very pleasant stay
Great location and comfortable spacious property. Sheila is a fantastic host who was keen to make our stay a pleasant one. Should we return to the area we will most certainly book to stay here again.
We had a really lovely time at this cosy property. It was great for kids too. The only issue we had was one night there was such a loud noise from the attic (heating I think?) that we could not sleep in the room with the 4 post bed. We mentioned it to Sheila and to be honest it was pretty much dismissed. Other than that it was a lovely stay
As well as the proximity to the Beach Bar (1.5kms), it is just 2kms to the local village cafe. 10kms to Easkey, home of the cafe "Pudding Row", a winner of multiple awards including "Best Small Cafe in Ireland"
The Upside Down House is part of The Landmark Holiday Lets. For larger groups there is also the option of staying in the Cosy Cottage or the 3Bedroom Main Residence.
