Whether it's a short stay or a time for you to relax and enjoy the delights of Sligo, our Cosy Cabin is the place for you. Close to Markree Castle, Coolaney for mountain biking, Strandhill for surfing, Benbulben for trekking and Sligo for culture, great restaurants, cafes and super traditional Irish pubs. We offer a comfortable and welcoming stay in a natural space with woodlands, meadows and a river to explore.
You have complete privacy but we are close by if you need us for anything.

The space
There is a fully working kitchen with hob, fridge with ice box. Electric power shower in the bathroom. Hot water in kitchen and bathroom taps. Table and chairs for dining and comfortable arm chairs for relaxing.

The bed is set up as a Super King size unless requested as two single beds.

There is an outside tap suitable for cleaning off surf gear and also mountain biking gear as well as a space to store and dry them.

We built the Cosy Cabin with an emphasis on sustainability but maintaining comfort and warmth, so we have endeavoured to source reclaimed materials, upcycling, repurposing and reusing as much as possible.
We have a rain water collecting butt for the loo which is plumbed directly to the cistern and we use "green energy" electricity. Recycling of rubbish and composting is part of how we live.

We grow our own vegetables in our garden and polytunnel surrounded by fruit bushes and trees. Our free roaming hens provide us with fresh eggs and our bees keep us in honey.

There is plenty of space around us but we are also so close to Sligo 20mins, Knock Airport 30mins, Markree Castle 7mins, Coolaney mountain bike trail 7mins, Strandhill 25mins that we can be anywhere really quickly. Its the best of both worlds!

There is plenty of nature around at different times of the year to observe, from the heron catching fish on the river while the ducks are floating past, to all the little, and big, garden birds that frequent our garden. During the summer months the skies are alive with colourful dragonflies and damson flies while butterflies flutter by too.
On clear nights you can star gaze, possibly able to see the Milky Way and the different constellations in the night sky.

Sligo, County Sligo, Ireland

we are surrounded by fields and a river so it is very quiet. We don't have any neighbours overlooking us although they are close by. Access is very easy just off the main road.
