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.

Our family stayed here last week off the beaten path with only one mediocre restaurant near by...close to beach...it really is a working farm!! Didn't feel the warmth of hospitality that we felt at the other places we stayed....the breakfast was excellent!!!

Visited for a few days here! The rooms were very nice, clean and comfy! Mary was so nice and helpful giving great suggestions on things to do during our stay! Loved the entire family and the farm!!! Breakfast in the morning was awesome. I would totally stay here again and would suggest it to anyone.

We visited in October and I could not have been more pleased with this B & B. Waking up to a delicious breakfast with cows right outside of the window was amazing. The entire family was helpful and made my stay in Sligo spectacular. They knew what I had to see before leaving. I can not wait to visit again,... More

Unfortunately we were only able to stay at this B & B for one night (June 29th, 2013), but what a great experience it was. We hope to return to the Irish Isle in 2015, and when we do we will certainly stay at this B & B for more than one evening. Mary Mulligan and her husband Poragh (spelling?)... More

We came down for surfing and needed somewhere to stay at the last minute. We turned up at the farmhouse at about 10pm and they were very friendly and said it was no bother to have a room. The daughter was very helpful and gave us directions for where we could get food. Breakfast in the morning was excellent and... More
