    About this property

    Dromore West 4 miles. A traditional, detached cottage with private access to a sandy beach, situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, in the townland of Templeboy, four miles from the village of Dromore West in the glorious county of Sligo. Surrounded by rolling countryside and farmland and buffered by rounded hilltops and the roaring Atlantic, this Dromore West cottage is a tranquil haven, perfect for families and friends looking for a relaxing coastal holiday. With three bedrooms providing flexible sleeping arrangements, this single-storey cottage near Dromore West exudes a wonderful homely feel as soon as you walk through the door with quaint touches dotted throughout. The cosy sitting room is complemented by a delightful multi-fuel stove ready to soothe aching bones after a long walk. Head outside, stopping only to admire the view across to the characteristic peak of Knocknarea and take a short stroll along a private path to a truly spectacular beach. Ideal for late evening walks or even a spot of surfing, this idyllic spot is guaranteed to delight guests of all ages. Situated half way between Sligo and Ballina, the village of Dromore West has three friendly pubs where you can quench your thirst after a day of sightseeing, plus there is a traditional thatched pub overlooking a beautiful sandy beach just two miles away from this Sligo cottage. The county of Sligo is famed for its sandy beaches and stunning landscapes, with the stretch of beach at Strandhill making a perfect afternoon walk followed by a spot of lunch overlooking the crashing waves, and perhaps if you are feeling brave, a seaweed bath! For any golfing enthusiasts, the courses at Strandhill and Rosses Point overlook the majestic Atlantic, plus the town of Sligo has numerous welcoming pubs, charming cafes and restaurants. Also make sure you take a trip to Drumcliff, the resting place of W.B. Yeats, one of Sligo’s greatest poets. Whatever the weather and whatever your appetite, there is something for everyone here at this Dromore West cottage.

    The village of Dromore West in County Sligo is situated half way between Sligo City and Ballina town, and offers three pubs, a Post Office, butcher, supermarket and a pharmacy. The seaside village of Easky and the long sandy beach at Enniscrone are both close by.

    "Margaret(owner) was helpful and reacted quickly when we discovered the DVD player remote was unusable. It was nice to find that there were dishwasher tabs, salt and pepper etc. Freshly baked bread and butter was a great touch. We came for surf , and though it was a poor week from that point of view we had a good time, and made the most if the great location. The Aughris Head is further than it says in the details - probably 2.5-3 miles. Otherwise description of local amenities was accurate. I ..."

    "Directions were easy to follow, even in Ireland's narrow and winding roads once away from the highways. Contact with the owner was easy to arrange to collect the key and when we arrived the wonderful host had supplied tea, coffee and bread in the superb kitchen, so that we didn't have to rush out and find supplies. No hidden extras in cost and a lovely personal intro book to the area, plus a visit from the host to make sure we knew where everything was. While the cottage was actually a very old farm, the upkeep has been loving and the design and layout were ideal for a family, or simply a mixed group of friends. The scenery and location is wonderful, with cows peering over the fences and the beach truly only a two minute walk away on a private path. Wonderful! Well worth a stay for days or longer and with today's GPS equipment, getting out and about is super easy, although sometimes just taking 'the next turning' can offer some exciting journeys. Warm at night, despite the lateness of the year and so cosy that sometimes we had to force ourselves to go out rather than stay and enjoy the wood fire we learned to set for ourselves. A wonderful visit to green and leafy Ireland, with lovely, homelike accommodation to add to our wonderful visit. Well worth a stay. Georgina and family from Hong Kong"

    "Great location over looking the beach. Lovely welcome by owner, fire lit, and some homemade scones and bread to snack on until we got set up. Cottage well equipped with everything you need. Definitely recommend and will go back in the future."

    "Lovely clean cottage, plenty of equipment, washing machine and tumble dryer which was great as we took our Grandchildren. Plenty of room for seven of us. The owner was a really lovely lady, who even got our three year old a birthday cake, she was just so kind. The beach at the bottom of the garden isn't ideal for sitting on and we wouldn't have let the children go outside on their own as there was an electric fence to keep the cattle out and quite a drop onto the beach, but saying that the ..."

    "Green Fort Cottage was well maintained and very welcoming upon our arrival. It was centrally located for all our excursions and a fantastic property to return to after a long day. Green Fort will definitely be the first choice when we return to the North West of Ireland!"
    Mrs Carol Carter, Wellington, Somerset
    "We were very happy with our stay at Green Fort Cottage, I cannot fault it at all. It was very clean and tidy, and the owner was lovely and helpful. There was everything you could want to make your stay comfortable. I would certainly recommend this cottage to friends and family."
    Mr John Layng, Bedford, (please select)
    "Great location with superb views; an ideal base for touring this great and interesting area. Super beach for walks very close. Lovely homely feel to the cottage and we were made to feel very welcome by the owner. We would definitely recommend this cottage to others."

    "I recently stayed in Green Fort and it was a 'fab' property. The owner was very nice. She had nice touches like a bottle of milk in the fridge and a packet of biscuits for the kids and plenty of turf available for the fire. Anything you could possibly need was provided without having to go ask for it. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Good location for touring around. Brought kids and grandparents and everyone enjoyed it."
    Mr Dunne, Swords, Dublin
    "Green Fort Cottage is in a fantastic location, with access to one of Ireland's wildest, most unspoilt beaches. There are numerous places to explore within a thirty minute drive. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, and we had a very relaxing few days there."
