We were delighted to have discovered Ardtarmon House during our search for places to stay in Co Sligo. We wanted somewhere idyllic and close to the trekking spots, most notably Benbulbin (Binn Ghulbain). We were given a huge room with a view to a lovely driveway and the garden. For breakfast, Christa, the owner's very gracious wife makes her own Irish soda breads and jams. Both the marmalade and gooseberry jams were absolutely lovely. The place is very spacious with a nice lawn, woodland garden and access to a beach overlooking Sligo bay. Charles, Christa's husband and owner of the estate was so friendly and engaging. He delighted us about the history of the estate as well us giving us useful tips on where to go for a spot of walking. Apart from the main house, there are also self catering cottages, the best of which us the thatched cottage. Yes the place needs a luck if paint here and there but we loved its rustic charm and will definitely stay with them again.
