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 house 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.
We arrived at Aughris Head, Co. Sligo, 4 senior golfers each desiring a comfortable bedroom, and were surprised to fine such nice accommodations, including two 1/2 baths, one bedroom downstairs and 3 up, one with ensuite bath. Living room had very comfortable leather couch and chairs which all reclined. Nice large dining area and large kitchen with dining. We didn't mind at all that there was no sea view, as it was close, within 3 blocks of the beach nestled into farm land. We enjoyed the livestock as well.
This is a great place to stay for 4 golfers, centrally located among 5 fine links golf courses, Carne, Enniscrone, Strandhill, Co. Sligo, and Donegal G.C. And nearby is the inimitable Beach Bar, serving from 1 to 8 pm, singing sometimes in the bar....and you gotta love the friendliness of the Irish. They're the best!
Very good price for the fine accommodations, with fuel costs extra at end of the stay, about 93 Euros for a week. From N59, take 6206, then take the turn west to the Beach House sign, then North on the narrow road, about a mile, to the Beach House. Thanks, Sheila!!
We spent a very relaxing week in the Aughris Beachhouse. The house was ver=y roomy and comfortable. Sheila, the owner was very helpful and obliging if we had any queries. The location was beautiful with the beach literally at the end of the road a short walk away, as was the Beach Bar with good food and good service.
Owner supplied good directions so we found the property easily.
We travelled as a party of 6 and the house had plenty of room for everyone.
Can not recommended the location of the property enough, the beach is a stones throw away which the kids loved, we saw lots of beach wildlife and even had a hare in the garden.
The beach bar is also a must visit, the food and hospitality are both excellent.
I will definitely be returning.
The extended family stayed here for five days over the new year. The location is second to none with the beach a few minutes walk away and the amazing Beach Bar within walking distance too. Couldn't ask for more. The house itself was big enough for the seven of us to live comfortably. The kitchen had everything we needed. All in all, couldn't ask for more.
Family stayed at this beautiful house for a short break as a surprise for my wife's birthday. It is brilliant! The scenery is stunning and just a few minutes to the beach and a short walk to the Beach Bar where they serve very good meals. The house has everything you need for a home from home holiday. We'll be back for more of this lovely place.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette grande et agréable maison !
Elle est lumineuse, pratique, bien située... Bref, à recommander !!
Et en plus, la propriétaire est très sympathique !
