Creevy Cottage Beach Cottage description

Holiday home
Creevy Cottage is a detached single storey character property five minutes walk from the sandy beach at Cliffoney in County Sligo. There are three bedrooms – a double room, a second double and a twin. The cottage has a bathroom and a shower room. The well-equipped kitchen has a dining area, and there is also a sitting room with an open fire, and a snug with a small pool table. Outside is off road parking, a lawned garden area with small stream and football goal, and a south facing patio with furniture. With the beach and coast so close, and the rest of Sligo easily reached, this charming property makes a lovely family retreat, all year round.

The sleepy village of Cliffoney is situated in one of the most stunning parts of the North West Coast of Ireland. It sits at the foot of the Benbulben and Benwiskin Mountains and overlooks Mullaghmore Harbour and Donegal Bay, and this magnificent setting has delighted visitors to the area for many years. Eight miles away is Lisadell House and Gardens, which have been restored to their former glory and are a wonderful attraction. Nature lovers can enjoy Bunduff marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary or the Clooneroco Bogs, which stretch across the terrain of Cliffoney. This glorious area is home to many attractions and activities and makes a marvellous base for what is sure to be a memorable holiday for the whole family.

The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

We loved the spacious and well decorated cottage. Our highlight was the beautiful fireplace in the living room.

We opened the door and felt immediately at home: Lovely decorated rooms, really charming, and a great kitchen with everything you need to actually cook. Mini billard / table tennis was a nice alternative to internet access and brought the whole family together. We also loved the short distance to the beach for strolls at all times.

This is a great place to stay. All the creature comforts you need in a cottage with character in a beautiful setting, we definitely plan to go back. Cliffoney is a great place to stay, with easy access to Sligo and Mullaghmore on your doorstep. Do visit Harrison's in Cliffoney, wonderful food

Needs wi-fi, this is 2018! Also a few keys to the back patio door would save a lot of walking around the house - this is mentioned several times in the Visitors Book, does nobody read this? Plenty of bulbs not working, sitting room very dark, impossible to read at night. Otherwise pretty good

Lovely cottage in a lovely location and we would return,however there is some room for improvement, few tips to improve at very little cost . Bathrooms, no bath mats, only two towels per person one of which we had to use to stand for fear of slipping on wet tiles, no towel rails to hang towels especially in small bathroom, no shelf to put a tooth mug had to keep tooth brush in toilet bag all week. Bedrooms , in two bedrooms no wardrobes to hang clothes we ended up hanging clothes on curtain rail There was no emergency list doctor, fire, police etc

Creevy Cottage did not disappoint. It was perfect for me and my 4 buddies. We had come to Ireland to see the sights along the Northwest coast and to enjoy some golf. Aside from the terrible open shower arrangement which drenched the main bathroom each time it was used, the cottage was very comfortable. The address was well situated for our interests as it was not far from Sligo town and Donegal town and the many golf courses that are sited in the area. We particularly liked the country lane thje cottage is on. One way was Mullagamore with its harbor and beautiful coastline and the other way was O'Donnell's pub, the latter in easy walking distance and a fine place to enjoy a pint or two.

This cottage is in a lovely location off a side road a couple of kms from Mullaghmore. Just a shortish walk to the dunes. The interior of the cottage was very stylish, wetroom shower totally useless because you do end up with a wetroom. The old part of the cottage is gorgeous, with a snug for the children, couldn't find any table tennis bats though. Would have liked the cupboards to be cleaner, more saucepans, and need to have a welcoming pint of milk or bottle of wine- welcome poor. But nevertheless this cottage is in a beautiful setting in a lovely part of Ireland. Go to Davis's Restaurant for amazing food!

This holiday home was exceptional had all the creature comforts of home and more.. From the outside the cottage looks small but wow you step inside and the space is amazing.Would highly recommend this cottage

This cottage definitely needs an internet connection.. Not being able to seek out more info about sites and places we wanted to visit was a disappointment. Stated as being 5 minutes walk from the beach is optimistic in the extreme: 20 minutes walk to the dunes and then a strenuous hike up and over could be unfeasable to a person with lesser mobility. The beach, however is stunning!

A well equipped cottage in a very beautiful countryside area.. A good base for exploring the area, great beaches and mountains too.
Mrs Gale

Was disappointed on arrival to find out we had make our beds up especially after travelling a long distance.. The beds were very comfortable though and slept very well. Would have been nice to have had some milk, bread etc on arrival or at least be told to come with some supplies. We had to drive back to the nearest town and as it was getting late just made it in time before closing. The cottage was very large and comfy and situated in a great location and would recommend it especially for families.
