About Sheila McDermott
We are a family of 4, living on a working farm in Sligo. We have been happily involved in the Self Catering business since 2006 with our very popular Beach House in Aughris. In 2012 we bought and renovated another property The Snug in Dunkineely, South Donegal, for our own use and also as a Holiday Let. In 2017 we added The Landmark ( also in Aughris, 1km from Beach House) to our Holiday Let offerings. This has two separate units ( 3bed and 1bed), is also of a very high standard and is also advertised on this site. Both properties are in wonderful locations on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Sheila McDermott purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Sheila McDermott chose Sligo
We purpose-built the house with separate annex for self-catering in 2006 because we know that it is situated in a fantastic location, beside the sea with lovely sandy beaches as well as the ever-popular Beach Bar.This is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The location is truly a walkers paradise. Many of our guests are families that bring their pets and spend their days on the many sandy beaches around. Aughris is ideally located for people wanting to explore the North West of Ireland. Some guests do day trips, maybe Donegal one day, Achill the next with some R&R in between. Others spent their time walking, fishing, surfing or golfing in the different hotspots around (Enniscrone, Strandhill, Rosses Point).
What makes this Apartment unique
The house is just two minutes walk to 2 miles of sandy beaches. A five minute walk takes you to the very popular Beach Bar so you don't have to worry about transport. The Restaurant at the Beach Bar is open at weekends and nightly in High Season and is very popular with our guests. The pub is open all year around with entertainment in high season. This is an authentic old-world thatched pub and we are very fortunate to have such a popular establishment so close the the Beach House.

Beautiful house in a fantastic place.
Our third visit to this beautiful house and annex in a lovely place. A short walk to the beach, the local pub / restaurant is 10mins away and serves really nice meals and the seaweed baths at Strandhill are fantastic. We've stayed in both the house and annex and both are well equipped, very clean and tidy and so peaceful. Thank you Sheila for this fabulous place and a superb visit. Stuart and Margaret.
A peaceful place
A lovely comfortable cottage in a great location. Facilities were fine, no sea view unless you went outside that is but a short walk brought to a lovely beach. Would highly recommend frio couples wanting a "get away from it all" break. A short walk took you to a great beach front pub serving excellent meals.
Well appointed, clean and excellent location.
Sheila, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. The 'cottage' is bright, clean and has everything you need. The bathroom is big and well appointed. It was great to say hello to the cows and calves who came near the fence every day! The morning walk to the beach (5 min away) with our dog was so great, I really miss it!
This is such a peacefull and great location you can really relax, enjoy the views and have a great holiday!
