This is the villageat the clarion which is part of yeats village in sligo. In term time this is student accomodation but in the summer holidays it is self catering apartments. you have an apartment with bathroom small kitcenette big lounge and tv.
Cheap alternitive to hotels and hostels, self catering and modern apartments.
Benbulben Farm is exquisite. Set in a hillside under the slopes of Ben Bulben the farm has some amazing views. The lady who owns the farm is very friendly and the farmhouse is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and clean and have all the ususal B&B amenities except TV's in rooms. There is a large lounge with a TV but this depends on how sociable you are feeling! This B&B is quite a distance from Sligo and alternative food sources.
It is set in such a beautiful part of Sligo and there is a very warm welcome from the family.
My two sisters and myself came to stay in this B&B because it is centrally located in Sligo Town. This is its only redeeming feature I can tell you.
On arrival we were quite disappointed with the appearance of the place. We asked to park our car in the secure carpark next door, this is a good feaure. The owner was friendly enough but when he showed us to our room we were not at all happy with the state of the decoration. The room was cold and there was rubbish behind the beds. We went out to eat and expressed our upset to the owner on our way out - he did clean the room before we came back but we were decidedly uncomfortable for our stay there (it was too late to find new accomodation or we would have!). The price is on a par with other town centre B&B's at approximately £25 per night - not good value when you see what you can get at other places.
I would be unable to recommend this hotel unless it has undergone a massive upgrade in the last year.
We arrived in Ireland in the evening and by the time we had collected our rental car and set off for Coolaney it was dark! The drive to get to the Mountain Inn was interesting and we knew we were in the mountains but driving those roads in the dark was quite scary!! In the daytime Coolaney does not disappoint - it is a gorgeous little town and the main road through the Ox mountains is delightful. The Mountain Inn is a very friendly, family feeling guest house with all the usual amenities in the rooms. There is a lovely bar in the hotel and the service is excellent. We did not eat at the inn, prefering to go into Sligo for meals but I am told they do good food too! The village is very quiet so do not come to Coolaney for a wild time but if you want beautiful scenery and a warm welcome you will find it here.
The only real downside for me was the distance from Sligo - about 15 miles. I knew this when I booked but on straight roads this is easy distance. On mountain roads it is harder work!
It costs about £25 pppn which represents really good value (and the rooms were warm too, always a bonus in Irish B&B's!).
Peace and tranquility - can't be beaten when you come from a big city!
Be warned, cell phone coverage is variable and unreliable this far into the mountains. I had no signal at all until I came back nearer Sligo!
There are 2 campsites in Sligo. The 1st is at Rosses Point. It cost me and my travel buddy (VT Username J.I.M) €10 a night to stay there in our own tents. The showers cost €0.50 for 2 minutes, there is a golf course, small fishing harbour and Grocery store. There is also a the Yeats Hotel right next to the camp site, but doesn't ruin the experiance at all.
The 2nd Campsite is at Strandhill, and costs the same as Rosses Point. We also stayed here for 2 nights, but enjoyed Rosses Point more.
I recommend private Bed & Breakfast accomodation. B&B price per person per night from 20 to 40 Euro.
It is not the cheapest way of living, but there are various advantages which make your holiday unforgettable:
You get in contact with the locals and get a feeling for their way of life.
You get in contact with other tourists.
The cooked irish breakfast is excellent and keeps you full until the afternoon.
