Lovely quiet country house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Hammer Hill House and really enjoyed our stay in Sligo. The house was clean, tidy and very comfortable. The property is close to the main Sligo to Ballina road for access to areas of local interest and a large beach is only a few minutes away by car. Our hostess, Marie, is a lovely lady and made us feel very welcome and we will certainly be returning on our next trip to Sligo.

Quiet, beautiful and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Hammer Hill House is a wonderful place to stay. We loved Aughris Head, the Dunmoran beach, Knocknarea mountain ...

The house itself has lots of space, is well equipped and has a lovely garden. It is a quiet place with good beds - all of us slept well. The Ardabrone-Stores (at 1km distance) offers all you need, you can even get fuel there and the people are very friendly.

Marie, the owner, helped us with a lot of tips where to go. She gave us fresh eggs from her princesses (her hens), even cakes. After a short time our holidays felt like staying with a friend.

Perfect Home From Home

  • 5 of 5

Hammer Hill House was the perfect home from home : clean, warm, nicely furnished and everything imaginable provided. The owner Marie was always available if needed, but never intrusive. The location is very quiet, with beautiful views to the mountains from the rear garden.

The house is an ideal base for anglers, with good rock fishing just minutes from the house at Finnure.

The local pub, 'The Beach Bar' does great food but is usually very busy.
