4 star luxury house and complete separate 1bedroomed Annex in quiet scenic seaside location with great beaches and wonderful views of the sea and mountains, yet just 40 minutes to Knock airport and 2.5 hours drive to Dublin airport. The location is particularly suited to familites or to Golf or Surfing enthusiasts who want a central base to sample what Ireland North West has to offer. A major attraction is the very popular Beach Bar, an authentic old world pub/restaurant which is only 5 minutes walk from the house.
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.
Both properties are in wonderful locations on the Wild Atlantic Way.
Sheila McDermott purchased this apartment in 2006
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).
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.
Extracts from TripAdvisor reviews...
It was great. We had such a wunderful time. We will come back next year in September for ten days. One of th loveliest places we ever been.
Amazing Waves! Beautiful beaches!
Had a lovely time at the beach house the accommodation was great, this was our second visit. Shelia the owner was very helpful during our stay. The house is very spacious with great coal fires for the cold nights and beautiful views. The beach is a two minute walk from the house, there is also a little pub the beach bar which sells great food & also has entertainment.

What a wonderful place to stay... Everything was perfect - the fireplace, the view, the weather, and the pub was just around the corner. Thank you, and we hope to see you again :)
Booked for 2 nights, great accommodation, perfect facilities for us and our dog. Views from all angles and close to the beach. Sheila was great answering our queries and had thoughtfully put the heating on for our arrival which was a lovely gesture. The walks along the beaches and headlands were glorious. Dont miss the Beach Bar, lovely traditional bar, thatched roof and great food. Will definitely be back.
Das Haus ist, folgt man genau der Beschreibung (nur die Abfahrt Aughris Head + Beach Bar), gut zu finden. Allerdings wäre ein Wegweiser von der Beach Bar aus hilfreich. Der Anstrich des Hauses ist übrigens rosa (auf dem Bild erscheint er weiß).
Die Übergabe über den kleinen Schlüsselsafe ist sehr praktisch, sodass man gleich nach der Ankunft ins Haus gelangt. Es ist gemütlich eingerichtet, hat viel Platz (Küche, Wohnzimmer, Schlafzimmer und Bad) und eine herrliche Aussicht: Landschaft pur! An kühlen Abenden ist ein Feuer im Ofen des Wohnzimmers fast so gemütlich wie ein Kamin! Kein Verkehrslärm, nur Natur! Der Strand ist schnell zu Fuß erreicht, zur mit Recht angesagten Beach Bar sind es keine 10 Minuten zu Fuß. Das Essen dort ist sehr lecker und reichlich in uriger Atmosphäre. Sheila ist sehr nett und um ihre Gäste bemüht! Danke!
We arrived after a long journey to find this lovely accommodation which lived up to its reviews. We couldn't believe how spacious and well equipped it was and the beds were all very comfortable. We enjoyed making a fire every evening with the peat that was supplied after coming back from our day out or evening in the Beach Bar, which is a lovely walk away along the top of the beach. It was idyllic and will look forward to return in the future.
