Ave Maria Farmhouse is a lovely bed and breakfast nestled into a rural part of Sligo. The room my husband and I stayed in was clean and comfortable, with a nice sized bathroom en suite. Breakfast was delicious. The hostess was very kind and welcoming. The home was beautiful. There is a restaurant within driving distance which offers ample potions... More

Could not recommend more highly, nothing was too much trouble. The friendliness and hospitality was superb (as was the breakfast). First time I have taken the time to review anything on Tripadvisor, it's that good!

We were the only guests on this cold night, and Mary made us feel very special indeed. At our request, Padraig allowed us to observe the early-morning routines of his working dairy and we definitely enjoyed the learning experience! Mary's friendly conversation and hospitality were the perfect complement to her home-cooked breakfast before we set out for Sligo. Would definitely... More

Our University group began their study in this elegant farmhouse of three generations and 700 cows. After two days, our students did not want to leave and in fact sent Mary a postcard to thank her. Mary's travel suggestions were very helpful, she arranged for our bus transportation, and the breakfasts were world class. She and her family took every... More

What a terrific farmhouse B&B. From the moment we arrived at the door until we said our good-bye 3 days later, we could not have asked for a better place to stay. Mrs. Mulligan and her daughters looked after us so well. The rooms are spacious, pretty, and sparkling clean. Breakfast is delicious. Mrs. Mulligan is very knowledgeable about the... More

This is a working dairy farm, the atmosphere may be something unfamiliar to the average person. Since my husband grew up on a dairy farm, this was the reason for this selection. The owner Mary was very gracious with sharing the workings of her family's large herd (700+) of dairy cows. She had an audience that was interested in some... More

Rooms were nice, breakfast was good. WiFi only accessible in the common room as our rooms were too far away from the router. Just put another one in and that problem would be solved. Only take cash. Working farm, so that was a nice change. Off the beaten path, so eat dinner before you get there! GPS we got was... More

I stayed here last summer with my family. Rooms were better than on the website, they had upgraded the bedding and the decor is actually quite spectacular. Breakfast was good, beds and comfy and hosts are friendly. I believe we stayed here on the way to Yeats grave (which is near a beautiful waterfall and river). The husband gave me... More

We spent two nights here and will spend more time when we return to the area. Yes, it is a little off the beaten path, but it is a working dairy farm. Mary went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, especially the porridge. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom... More

While the room was quite small, the hospitality of the host was excellent. Be prepared to be in a very rural setting on a working dairy farm. Excellent breakfast but dinner will require quite a bit of travel.
