Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

This was one of two houses I rented for a group of seven golfers from the US playing Rosses Point and other great courses in the area. We loved the location, reasonably close to Sligo Town (to our surprise there was lots going on, well before the summer season), and in a beautiful spot near the sea. The house was very comfortable, and the owner, Louise is a dear woman, so easy to deal with. Prompt communication and deposit returned no problem. I would highly recommend.

Large, clean, quiet and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6, our children aged 14 months to 7 years, and this house was perfect for us. Plenty of room inside and out, we didn't even use one of the bedrooms. My son loved the soccer goals in the yard, and there is even a playhouse, swing set and other toys for them. Perhaps the best of all is the beach just a charming 10-minute walk down a farm-lined road. Louise is friendly, knowledgeable on the local area, and lives just a short distance away if there is something that is needed.

Two items that I wish we had been made aware of:

The heating oil is not included in the price of the rental. We were careful with heat and so the cost was not a significant deterrent, but it's something to be aware of.

More frustrating was the wifi. It is cellular based wifi, and the cost is also not included in the price of the rental. We didn't have a phone in Ireland since we planned on doing trip research and staying in touch with the wifi, but you can't top up the wifi without a phone, a catch 22 that proved frustrating and time consuming. We eventually worked out a solution with the property owner, but a lot of research on local attractions were lost in the interim, so arranging a solution early is important.

Overall our experience at 8 gables was wonderful. Daily walks to the beach, trips to Sligo, various monolithic tombs, Croagh Patrick, Slieve League, Streedagh Strand and so many other notable places. Co Sligo is perhaps our favorite part of Ireland, and this house is perfect for exploring it.

"Nous avons passé une excellente semaine chez Louise qui nous a accueillis de façon vraiment très agréable ! La literie et les douches étaient parfaites. La maison est très propre et soignée. Merci mille fois pour votre accueil et la tenue irréprochable de votre maison! L''emplacement est de premier choix pour visiter la région et partir à la découverte des très belles plages. Le petit jardin était également un atout incontestable avec une petite aire de jeux pour notre fille qui a pu en profiter. Nous sommes rentrés enchantés de cette découverte en famille de la région de Sligo."

Amazing stay at 8 Gables !!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house (huge, clean, modern, well placed). We were 4 people and we really appreciate our stay at 8 Gables. nice garden for kids, 5 minutes walk to the sea. the ratio price/quality is amazing.

Louise is very kind and welcoming. Her level of confidence to us is notable.

Highly recommended place to spend nice holidays.
