After a 30 hour flight from Sydney Australia and then a 3 hour drive from Dublin I was pleased to stop and have a great place like this to stay. I was made yo feel very welcome, given local info and a great breakfast after a long sleep. The breakfast room is sunny and my room was great. Thanks.

We stayed at Philmar House for two nights in April. The room and host exceeded expectations. Great room, great shower, nothing was too much trouble for Mary. Breakfast was massive and there was a great choice. Can't recommend this place enough.

Our host gave us a sheet where we could decide what we're going to eat in the morning. Our host gave us some good... More

We found this a good, quiet (well back from the not-busy main road), and very clean B&B, reasonably-priced and no money was taken in advance. It was easy to find and ideal for visiting Sligo whilst not being in the busy town. Bedrooms on the ground floor were good for disabled access and for looking-out onto lovely gardens. En-suite facilities... More

I stayed here in July from Friday to Monday! The hotel is right in the middle between rosses point and Sligo city centre! 5 min drive each way! So for me that was great! Mary the host couldn't be nicer! And as she's a local she gives you great advice about places to go or things to see! The place... More

Four of us stayed in two double rooms recently. As I'm a wheelchair user it can be difficult finding a suitable room, but Mary gave us our choice and we stayed in a lovely double with ensuite. Mary was a perfect host - she welcomed us , gave us tea and lovely cake and then left us in peace to... More
