My family are from Co Sligo and we can trace our lineage for over 510 years! I am the last of the family and maintaining a link to this area and sharing the magic of the West is something I want to ensure is passed on to my children - hence why we bought this cottage
Why Sara chose Tobercurry
It's in a perfect spot! Far enough from the town for privacy and in easy reach of everything you need
What makes this Cottage unique
It is a traditional cottage and the type of dwelling my grandfather and his parents were raised in. The fireplace is magnificent and I bet there were many yarns told by the light of the fire. Irish fairies are known in these areas and if you take a photo and see a bluish/green light, you might just have caught one!

Pleasant cottage in a quiet rural location
My sister and I had an enjoyable few days in this pleasant cottage. The kitchen diner was light and bright and overlooked the large garden. The bedrooms were both a good size and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was small but adequate and the shower worked well. Overall, the cottage was warm and comfortable and suited us well. The owner was helpful and friendly and responded quickly when contacted.
Lovely little cottage
Directions were comprehensive and made the cottage easy to find. The accommodation was generally well equipped and it was lovely to have the opportunity to experience one of those cottages we often pass and wonder what they are like inside!
Information from Sara was very useful including letting us know of the local fair whilst we were staying.
Overall an excellent stay in cosy accommodation.
Great cottage close to many places in Sligo and Mayo.
We had a fantastic time Sara was from start to finish really accommodating and In communication throughout our stay. The cottage is a beautiful little hideaway. The garden is beautiful and backs off onto fields. Beautiful views. The house has sky tv a DVD player games and books and all amenities! We will definitely be back Sara. Love the raumer’s !! X
It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay
Thank you and hope.to have you guys back
Cozy country home in Ireland
We enjoyed our 3 day stay at Slyvie’s Cottage. It is located in a lovely farming area south of Sligo Town and a good location to explore the surrounding Counties Sligo and Mayo. The Muir family has added many lovely touches which made our stay warm and welcoming. Directions, property details, and local activities are well provided.
Thank you Mike and Chris for staying! We were pleased you enjoyed your break away in Sligo. We would be delighted to have you stay again if you ever come back to Sligo
Authentic Irish Country Cottage updated nicely
We were a little concerned if we would have trouble finding the cottage, but it was actually pretty easy. Just follow google maps for the more major roads and when you get on the smaller country road it is simply at the end. Very private in the middle of the country with cows all around. Tubbercurry is a little limited on food choices but charlestown just down the road had several good and reasonable restaurants. Even a grocery store(spar) that sold individual entries to heat up at the house all in metal tins so no clean up. We were busy running around seeing all the sights so we didnt spend a large amount of time at the cottage, but my children enjoyed the dvd/tv with all the kids movies after our long days. It is a great place to be for an easy day driving distance of lots of touristy things to do. They have a book with lots of local recommendations and of the course the famous ones are easy to find. The back of the house opens up to a farmers field and gives you a very private/country feel. However the neighbors are just up the road that seemed friendly and you are just about 10 minutes driving time from Tubbercurry if you need anything. Kitchen was remodeled and looked great. While the rooms were a little small(typical of cottages that age) they were very functional and we certainly did not have a space issue with my 3 kids and my wife and I. No problems getting into the cottage and figuring out the typical how do I use this house. The literature provided was very helpful and I can tell has been simplified over time. If you are interested in a authentic irish country experience, a private get away or simply like the value for this cabin then it is for you.
Thank you David for your invaluable review! It was a delight to host you and your family! With kind regards
