Geraldine and Jim have lived a number of places-Jim having grown up in Minneapolis and Annapolis, MD and Geraldine in Ballymote, County Sligo . After college in Richmond, VA and New York, NY, Jim relocated to Roanoke, VA where he lived for 22 years, raising 3 sons. Geraldine arrived from Ireland in 1988 and spent time in New Jersey and South Florida, until she relocated to Roanoke where our paths crossed. We currently live in Boca Raton, Florida. (If you're planning a trip to sunny Florida, check out our other listing, 917719)
Jim purchased this House in 2011
Why Jim chose Castlebaldwin
Geraldine and I visit her Irish home frequently and were looking for a home to eventually spend part of the year when we retire-we came upon this home almost by accident, seeing a flyer in the window of a real estate office in Sligo. We got to see the property the day before we were returning home to the States, and committed to making it ours. We were captivated by the views from the home and the potential the home had with the renovations we knew we would do, and it was large enough to hold our family comfortably.
What makes this House unique
There really are no other properties that compare to this house. The combination of views, historic location, access to outdoor activities, and the feeling of complete relaxation afforded by the complete package is unbeatable.

Beautiful home, stunning views, wonderful people. Truly a slice of heaven!
This amazing house with spectacular views is a must place to stay
Wow! Amazing! Spectacular! I rarely write online reviews but I had to on this one. I have traveled to several countries in the past decade and have stayed at many other VRBO locations, and this was by far the BEST one ever. The house and the views were just out of this world. My brother, his wife, our cousin and I were just stunned when we drove up the hill to the house and equally amazed when we walked into the house. The house was very clean and ready for us and had so much space. The bedrooms were large. Two bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms (one walk-in shower didn't have a shower curtain, which was a problem with water getting into the bathroom; the other had a shower door). There was a very large bathroom with shower and a bathtub. The kitchen was big and awesome with the amazing views. The house also had good wifi and washer and a dryer (a bonus in Europe). The house caretaker even had bread, milk and butter awaiting our arrival. That was a very nice little touch. The only issue we had was getting to the house initially. We had used the VRBO app and clicked on directions and it took us to a completely different place. But the caretaker answered the phone immediately to help direct us to the house.
We wished we could have stayed there longer than the three nights. It is a great house for a longer period of time, particularly since there is so much to see in the Sligo area.
So glad you enjoyed your stay-I checked with homeaway on the direction snafu and apparently the information doesn’t transfer accurately to the vrbo site-made some adjustments so should be good going forward-thanks for the heads up.
Hope we can get together when we get to Richmond-would love to hear more about your Sligo adventures-
You won't be disappointed.
My only regret is that I didn't book this property for longer. Just completed a 10 day trip to Ireland and this home, by far, was the best living experience.
The view from the house alone is worth the trip up the road (which is not for the faint of heart!). The house was immaculate and the property manager was incredibly helpful. I would highly recommend this home and hope to return myself someday.
Thanks for the kind words Peggy-hope you can stay longer next time! No matter how long we stay it is never long enough
Super house in stunning surroundings!
Amazing views and lovely house
We very much enjoyed our stay. The sites and views wherever you go are simply amazing. The house was just perfect. Having the red guide book helped to plan our days of adventure. The house has everything you would need or want to make your stay enjoyable.
So glad you enjoyed your stay-we hope you can visit again to enjoy even more of all the west of Ireland has to offer
We came for a family reunion. Everyone was very impressed with the facilities and the views. Had a g
Lovely house. Very comfortable. Caroline was fabulous. My husband got sick and she arranged for him to see the doctor immediately. She was extremely helpful. Our group had a lovely time and kept exclaiming about what a great house it is.
Enjoy wonderful hiking, exploring ancient tombs just above the house, local markets and festivals, and just taking in the fabulous views afforded by the elevated site over Lough Arrow.
