About the Owners

We are a family of 4, living on a working farm in Sligo . We are fortunate to live  in a coastal area of outstanding natural beauty on the Wild Atlantic Way and have been providing luxury pet friendly self-catering in the North West since 2006 -see www.sheilasplaces.com.

The Snug is for our own use as well as being offered for self-catering.

When we have the time and The Snug is free there is nothing we like more than heading to Dunkineely.

Why this location?
We bought this property in November 2011 because we love the area and believe that Dunkineely is a wonderful scenic location with so many options on the doorstep. We were particularly keen on the property after being lucky enough to get a window seat when we had lunch in nearby Castle Murray on the first day we went to view it. We chanced on the place whilst driving around and couldn’t believe our luck. Between the view across McSwynes Bay and the wonderful food we were smitten! ( Sadly the restaurant at Castle Murray  closed in Jan. 2017 , and is currenty (Summer 2017 ) open Saturdays only  .  One particular treat for us is being able to walk to a choice of 4 decent pubs, some with regular entertainment. They take their trad sessions (Weds and Sun pm in McIntyres)  seriously here and our guests just love them …There is a great atmosphere in the pubs in the village and everybody is just so friendly. As one of our guests reported, “they get to know you first!”

What are the unique benefits of the property?

The house is in a super location, it feels quiet and secluded yet is just tucked in snugly off the main street. We have done a big renovation on the house, with two completely separate units ( upstairs or downstairs), each equally comfortable. We have a little Yorkshire Terrier and he loves our outings to The Snug because we can close the gate and let him roam freely in the garden.
