What a delight! Such a warm, welcoming and cosy cottage, surrounded by beautiful countryside as well as being just beside the Owenmore river. A perfect place for us to relax and unwind with our dogs, Tess, Meg, Beth & Connie, who loved every minute. Truly a haven of peace and tranquillity, watching and listening to nature at it's most delightful....

About the neighbourhood
James Tymon cottage stands on 30 acres of farmland by the bank of the Owenmore river at Moydough,Gurteen, Co Sligo, Ireland.

It has a well earned reputation for its traditional Irish music scene which can be sampled in the local pubs particularly The Roisin Dubh.The village has an excellent supermarket which is open every day, a pharmacy,petrol station post office and a hardware store.<BR>As our guests tell us the c... more
