Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely cottage in a hillside location
Had a lovely time for 7 nights in this nice cottage...There was 4 of us and was a massive cottage with lots of room. If there was 6 of you you would all struggle to fit in the living room however. We didn't have children but the garden was huge and lots of space to keep them entertained. We found it ok eventually ,trouble with signal on our google maps...The owners we only saw on arrival and were so nice....they left us lots of goodies. The view is amazing and is ideal place to visit Sligo and surrounding areas. You definitely need a car to explore. We traveled to Galway for the day just over 2hours nice typical irish city worth a visit . The weather bit mixed for June typical i guess for NW Ireland. If we was to visit again then we would book this cottage again.

Easter Getaway
Hugh and Catriona were welcoming and helpful throughout. We really enjoyed the house and found it very homely with superb views. The kids loved the garden and the hens. Them eggs were tasty. Slish wood, Strandhill, Doorly Park and Zero Gravity skatepark were great for a run out too. Top marks all round.

Gorgeous Getaway
We stayed in Hugh & Catriona's Cottage over New Year and it was just perfect. The cottage is full of character but renovated to a really high standard. So much attention to detail, brilliantly equipped with absolutely everything we needed and the place was spotless. Loads of space outside which I'm sure is fantastic in the summer but for a winter break, we just loved the cosiness of the inside and the kids loved the big TV with all the channels! Beds were so so comfy and inviting and even had electric blankets! Bliss. We got a very warm welcome from Hugh and Catriona, good directions and our amazing welcome pack with fresh eggs, bread, jam and wine. So thoughtful and much appreciated! They were on hand for every little request but gave us complete privacy too. The location speaks for itself. There are literally endless things to do in Sligo. The cottage is a nice short drive to Strandhill, Rosses and the town itself. But even without taking the car out, the 4km loop walk down the hill and around Lough Gill is just stunning. and different every time. Overall, just a perfect spot for a complete break in the west. Excellent value and a great welcome.Thank you for everything. We'll definitely be back!

Sligo treat
The Cottage was ideal for exploring Sligo. The WiFi was very good . Hugh and Caitriona were brilliant hosts very informative. Sligo town is about 1 to 2 kilometres. Strandhill is a ten minute drive. Well worth a visit

Fantastic
Fab old country farm cottage within walking distance from sligo. Hugh and Catriona thought of everything!! We had two young kids 1 1/2 and 4! The attention to detail down to even having bath toys for the kids didn’t go unnoticed!! The welcome pack was a great hit!! We will definitely be returning again

Wonderful family holiday
We stayed for 2 weeks in August and we felt very much at home here. Our kids loved the garden and the chickens and we really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Hugh and Catriona are great hosts. There was everything we needed in the house and it is just the right balance of being out in the countryside but still near to the town. Would highly recommend and we hope to be back when we're visiting again.

A great stay in a lovely country cottage.
This is a lovely cottage in the countryside, with beautiful views of the mountains and sea, yet only 2 mins drive from Sligo town. Our kids loved it here, playing in the garden, on the swings and visiting the hens everyday. Lough Gill is a short and scenic walk from the cottage, and the cottage is a short drive from all the great Sligo attractions: beaches, mountains, lakes, town centre. The cottage was very clean and well equipped, with a big garden and patio. We enjoyed eggs fresh from the hens and some lovely treats that the hosts left for us. Catriona & Hugh were really welcoming and helpful. I would highly recommend Old Farm Cottage.

Short break in Old Farm Cottage
We had a lovely short break in Sligo, staying at Old Fam Cottage proved to be a great choice. Hugh and Catriona met us as we arrived providing a lovely basket with soda bread, homemade jam and a bottle of wine to get the party started. It’s a great spot not far from town, in beautiful surroundings with all you need for a family or group holiday. Beautiful views of Knocknarea and Benbulben. A short jaunt to Strandhill and Rosses Point is not far away. Sligo is the land of dreams with something for everyone. Highly recommended.

Lovely cosy cottage with amazing views
A last minute booking for 2 nights for myself and dad was quickly responded to. On arrival we met Hugh and Catriona who gave a quick run down on heating controls and had left a lovely welcome basket with wine, home made jam, fresh homemade bread and lovely eggs from the hens next door (in field). The cottage was very clean with everything we could possibly need, and cosy. The views are lovely and a very quiet peaceful location. Would definitely recommend and if ever back in Sligo area this would be first on my list for somewhere to stay
