Orchard Cottage Self-Catering

Orchard Cottage is the perfect base for exploring Yeats County and the north-west coastline. Conveniently situated just off the N4 and 5km from Sligo Town, this 200-year-old traditional, stone-built cottage is set on a working farm. It combines the charm of the old world with the comforts of today. Guests can experience the fresh green countryside by day and the warmth of the open fire by night.

The cottage comprises timber flooring throughout the living and bedroom area, while the bathroom is tiled.
The living area boasts a brick-clad open fire, with a fully equipped kitchen. Relax in the tranquillity of the orchard garden, or enjoy a quiet read on the back patio area.


The cottage is so conveniently located that a five-minute drive leads to the many shops, restaurants and pubs – with the region's traditional music to be had in some of the pubs. Visit the many beaches, lakes and rivers this lovely county has to offer, with surfing and golfing in Strandhill, the ancient megalithic tombs at Carrowmore, and Knocknarea Mountain – all less than a 15-minute drive away.

What a lovely 5 nights we had at Orchard Cottage! The cottage was so comfortable and it was lovely to light a fire each evening. Leo and Maura were lovely hosts and Leo was so knowledgeable about all the interesting places to visit in Sligo and beyond! There’s so much more to see so we’ll have to come back!

Myself, husband and son stayed in Orchard Cottage in October. We had a fantastic stay. The house was spotless and contained all equipment needed. The location is in peaceful countryside but still only a short drive to Sligo town. Leo, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and we look forward to our upcoming stay in December.

It's a beautiful cottage quite central to everything. Leo was great he told us the places to go and where to eat. I would go back again and I be telling family and friends to stay there when holidaying in Sligo

On a scale of 1-5, Orchard Cottage is a 10. I have stayed here for 2 months now, and it is with tears in my eyes that I have to leave. This place is perfect. It is immaculate and comes equipped with everything you need. It is isolated, yet within a 5 minute drive to Sligo. The road is perfect for a leisurely stroll, passing pastures and cows and amazing scenery. Leo is the ultimate host--there when you need him, but never intrusive. I cannot recommend it more highly. Please stay here!!

We've stayed at Leo's cottage for 3 months and had the most wonderful time there. The cottage is cosy and even has a lovely fireplace. The view over the mountains is priceless and the area is very quiet, but it is still only 5min into town by car. Leo was always so kind and helpful and provided us with everything we needed. We would always stay there again and recommend Orchard Cottage to anyone!

We were met by the owner at a convenient pupblic spot and guided to the self catering cottage which was very well maintained and very convenient to all the local beauty spots and walks. The owner also furnished us with lots of local information about music groups we could join and which level might suit us,after enquiring about our interests. There was a welcome pack which included a bowl of lovely fresh fruit, milk and buiscuits with enough tea and coffee to get us started. We were left in complete privacy with contact numbers and information about heating, lighting etc. We felt very well catered for by an exceptionally lovely friendly person who we felt had our best intersts at heart. Most enjoyable stay

This place was such a gem. Everything you would need in an idyllic secluded setting and just a 5 minute drive to Sligo Town and 10 min from Strandhill. Leo was also the perfect host. I would definitely come back here.

My husband and I stayed at Orchard Cottage while I was researching my next mystery. It was the perfect location for touring the wild western way and the hosts couldn't have been more charming and helpful. The cottage is spotlessly clean and we were warmly welcomed with fresh fruit, sweet treats and organic eggs. If you dream of a stay in an idyllic Irish county cottage and enjoying your own peat fire after an evening of traditional music at one of the many pubs this is the ideal place for you. We would return again and again!

A gorgeous old cottage providing tranquility and comfort whilst being fully equipped and modern. It was possible to smell the flowers and bask in the sunny courtyard. A must do!

If I could rank higher than ten, I would. This was by far the best stay of our one month in Ireland. I would highly recommend Orchard Cottage to any of my friends and family. The location was lovely-very close to Sligo but far enough away so that we weren't in the city. Leo and Maura were so nice, so hospitable... he pulled the nettle out of the yard so we could play tag with our kids, and they even invited me up to listen and play traditional Irish music with them. It was wonderful. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!!!
