“We double checked the bill”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

This accommodation was spacious, spotless and comfortable. When we walked in we double checked the bill as we thought the price quoted was per night, not for the weekend. We had a delux apartment with patio. There were 2 bedrooms, one of which was en suite (with a massive powerful shower). All we needed for cooking breakfast dinner was available. Sheilagh was extremely pleasant and offered great local information & directions.

After arriving from Dublin late on a Friday night, the joy of seeing our superb apartment was amazing! It was immaculately clean, spacious and finished to an excellent standard. After a great nights sleep (the bedding is really good) and a beautifully hot shower.....then came the real test; using the kitchen to make the obligatory 'full Irish breakfast'. It was effortless! It's a recurring theme; the family who run the apartments clearly have a fantastic eye for detail and quality.

As the other reviews suggest, Sligo is a great town and a fantastic county to explore. If you want to have a truly enjoyable experience, this is the place to stay! My only regret is not being able to stay longer than a weekend....( I am happily planning a return visit) Go, enjoy and explore!

Apartments are located on the grounds of Kevinsfort house and I could not recommend them enough.
The apartment we stayed in was good valule, comfortable and very spacious. The decor was tastefully modern and impeccably clean. We stayed in number 14 on the ground floor with parking right at the front door
Sligo is one of our favourite towns in Ireland. We love it to explore Yeats country and regularly use Sligo town as a staging post. From which Kevinsfort is only 10 minutes walk away. We received plenty of advice and suggestions on what to see and do. The family who run the place are knowledgeable and very friendly. We will be back up to visit soon........

I recently spent a wonderful weekend in County Sligo, Ireland. Myself, my wife and our two kids discovered these apartments and where very impressed with the size, cleanliness and overall standard of the accommodation. It is obvious that they were built as high standard long term accommodation and are way above the normal standard for short term rentals, we all agreed that we had come across a gem of a place. 5 minute walk to town and a 10 minute drive to the surf beach, the kids were delighted. We'll definitely be staying in one of these apartments next time we visit. Absolutely fantastic.

We spent 2 nights at apartment #14 at Kevinsfort House. It is situated in the old farm buildings that have been converted to apartments of a very high standard. They are quiet and away from the main road yet only a 10-15 minute walk into the centre of Sligo (or a couple of minutes drive!) The apartment is roomy with a good patio area and parking right outside the door. Inside it contains everything that you could need for your break. A real home from home.
Sligo is a busy town (typically Irish), and there are many places to visit both on the coast and inland, with some very good beaches nearby.
The cost is possibly slightly more than you would pay for a hotel room in the town, but the extra space, flexibility and facilities are well worth it particularly for families or those like us, travelling with a canine companion!

My family and I spent 5 days at the Kevinsfort apartments in June. We've done self catering holidays before but we were blown away with the standard of these apartments. Everything you would need was supplied and cleanliness was to a very high standard. Also a very nice touch was some milk and cereal were left for us as a welcoming which was great as we arrived late on the Wed evening. We had 2 children with us who both enjoyed their stay as there was plenty of room indoors and outdoors for them to run about so they didn't feel cooked up for the few days. There was a tv provided but to be honest it was never used but we did make good use of the board games which were supplied. Strandhill beach was a 5min drive down the road which we ate out for lunch at twice, really nice ice cream shop on the corner which the the kids loved and there was a lovely traditional pub called The Strand which had live music on the Sat night. The restaurant above the pub was fab too (not too sure of the name of it now). We got a takeaway pizza in the Italian restaurant on another evening and it was lovely, The town was a 20min walk away and had all the usual shops and supermarkets that you find everywhere. We definitely will be returning to these apartments and probably for longer next time, the value for money really is excellent and all in all we had a fabulous wk in Sligo. Well done Kevinsfort!

Room Tip: Ideal for a double holiday with another family also bring a bbq if you have a small portable one as...
