“A lovely week in Alder Cottage”
Reviewed October 11, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent a lovely relaxing week in Alder Cottage. The house is beautifully presented throughout, warm, bright and cosy with everything we needed. The photos don’t do it justice! Very peaceful location and some beautiful scenery. Thanks
to Mary for her warm welcome and help. Highly recommended.

“Get away from it all, in style!”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Alder cottage is a great find for travellers who prefer to get away from it all. Stunning location and its not surprising to discover, the owners husband is an architect, the house is beautifully designed and presented. Being vegetarians, it is not always easy to find good food outside cities but Mary sent us the menu in advance and we were delighted with the organic meals she prepared for us. The complimentary organic veg basket we received on arrival was a really nice touch! All round, a great stay!

“Alder Cottage was peaceful, tranquil and well located.”
Reviewed June 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent a wonderful week at Alder Cottage over the end of April and early May. We were looking for something comfortable and well located as a base to explosre the NW or Ireland
and South/Central of Northern Ireland. It couldn't have been better. Access to highways in
every direction were nearby. Manorhamilton was very close and provided everything one
needed for supplies and evenings out. The cottage and it's surroundings offered much more than expected. It was incredibly well equipped, had all conveniences and was very comfortable. Very good value !. Our host was fantastic, very helpful and generous in every regard. We had eggs, bread and jams from their nearby farm and they were incredible ! I hope to stay here again one day. TIP - use GPS coordinates to locate when you first drive there.

“Charming and stylish cottage in an idyllic countryside”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Alder Cottage is a wonderful, spacious, five star cottage, set in an idyllic and peaceful countryside not too far from Sligo, lough Gill and other amenities. Mary was an incredibly helpful and generous host and provided us with some very tasty organic food (from her organic farm) and gave us great information and tips about the area. We spent a wonderful summer there, kayaking, walking and enjoying all the cultural events Sligo has to offer in the summer (Yeats week, Fleadh, Heritage week and more). We truly recommend it.

“Cosy Cottage”
Reviewed April 25, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Great cottage set well back away from the road . The kids enjoyed the large garden and the table tennis table . The owner Mary was very knowledgeable about things to do not only in the local area but further afield also . She also took the time for us to see the sheep and hens that she kept so the kids got to hold the new born lambs and pick some eggs from the hen house . Alder is a lovely modern cottage with a touch of the
old thrown in also . We enjoyed our stay and would certainly go back again .
