Traditional Cosy Stone Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Rathosey Cottage is a rustic secluded traditional Irish stone cottage over 200 years old, located in the foothills of the Ox Mountains. The Cottage is beside an ancient trackway origionally giving access to Osey’s Rath (fort). There are three renovated Cottages in the tiny clochan(traditional Irish village) two of which we let for holiday use. Otherwise the cottage is surrounded by trees, stone walls and several acres for wildlife, including Deer, red squirrels, fox’s, pheasants etc.

Our little traditional cottage has been renovated so as to preserve its original features such as exposed beams and stone walls. It is a perfect place to get away from it all, to return to a more relaxed down-to-earth way of living (but with all mod cons!) and an open fire , for that extra bit of cosy!

Rathosey Cottage has three bedrooms and one bathroom, living/dining room and open fire.

Located beside the lovely Village of Coolaney, at the end of a long private driveway, Rathosey Cottage is only 20 minutes drive to Sligo Town, shopping centre of the North-West & is the perfect location to explore the Wild Atlantic Way.

Please be aware that that our cottage has low doorways, steps and a slightly steep staircase, and it may not be suitable for someone with limited mobility.

We are happy to offer a 15% discount for stays of seven nights or more, this discount will apply when you select your dates.

Guest access

Guests have full use of the cottage and the attached garden. A picnic table is beside the cottage for your use. There is a private car park.

Interaction with guests

The cottage is for the private use of guests.

Although we do not live beside the cottage we are available by phone should you have any problems.

The neighbourhood

The village of Coolaney is aprox 1 km away, with a general store, petrol pump, pubs and a take away. There are many excellent eatery’s within a short drive.

There are many great beaches within easy reach, including Dunmoran Strand only 10 minutes drive away. A country market is held every Saturday morning close by in Beltra village.

The cottage is situated beside the famous Ladie's Brae scenic route which makes it ideal for beautiful walks. The nearby “Wild Atlantic Way” is easily accessible by car.

Other things to note

You will need a car to get to this cottage.

The need to preserve the traditional character of the cottage makes it unsuitable for wheelchair access and for persons of limited mobility as there are steps, low doorways and a fairly steep stair case.

About The Owner

I grew up here in Sligo and although I spent many enjoyable years studying in Galway and working in Cornwall, my family and I returned home to live because we love it here.

I'm very interested in Art, always baking and I love the wildlife and beautiful scenery in Sligo.

It is really enjoyable and interesting to meet people from other places and make them at home while they discover or revisit Sligo.

Neat cottage, nicely appointed, but remote

  • 4 of 5

Old cottage, nicely remodeled, in rustic location. 8 k to nearest market. Good location if you are writing a novel or are into biking or treking.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and for your review, it is worth noting however that there is a village ten minutes walk away or 2 minutes drive with a small shop selling milk bread and other groceries to tide you over, also petrol and fuels for a fire and there is a butcher a little down the road along with a couple of pubs and a hairdresser. There is a larger supermarket in Ballisodare, and even more choice in Sligo. The cottages are enclosed in their own green space so do feel secluded at the same time.
