Great place to stay, modern, clean with all mod cons and close to the beach. Loved it, will be back!
Geraldine, it was a pleasure to have you and all the generations of your family stay.
Come back anytime.
Fantastic house and host. There were 8 on a group family holiday and the house was a perfect fit. Spacious, clean and in a nice location, lots of greenery. Louise is fantastic and met us for the check-in to say hello and give us a run down of all that the house offered. Would defo recommend.
Thank you for your kind review.
It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay.
I appreciate the good care you took of the house and the tidy condition in which you left everything.
Lovely, spacious, private home
My wife and I, along with our three children, spent a happy week at 8 Gables in July. The house is exactly as described in the ad; it is spacious, comfortable, well appointed, and well kept. Louise was very welcoming and quick to respond to what few questions we had during our stay. It was an ideal location for us — rural, quiet, and private, yet a short drive to many outstanding walks and beaches as well as good pubs and restaurants. We loved it.
Many thanks Samuel. It was a pleasure to have you and your lovely family stay.
Peaceful, Idyllic, Relaxing, Wonderful Stay!
Louise has a wonderful house and is a lovely host! The house is close to the beach, has fantastic walks, beautiful sunsets and nearby restaurants. It was everything that we needed for the perfect stay in a beautiful country - thank you!
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!
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.
A new system of Wifi has been installed, it is very successful and free!
