Milk Harbour Holidays

By the sea, in the Sligo landscape, on the Wild Atlantic Way

Our aim is to provide a fulfilling, memorable holiday destination enabling you to experience the very best from a visit to the west coast of Ireland.  Experience the activities on offer, both on site and in the locality – and explore the heritage, culture, landscape, music and other key attractions of the region. Our proposition, as far as possible, is to bring the indoor and outdoor activities to holiday making guests here in Milk Harbour.

With four en-suite double / single bedrooms catering for up to eight adults, a dedicated guest dining area and an upper floor sitting room. Additionally we have created a new studio /activity space within the boathouse equipped with kitchen, shower, toilet and changing facilities as well as superfast wi-fi: Guest also have access to kayaks, bicycles, the gardens and the shoreline from our private slipway

Update:    December 2018
The rebuild and refurbishment of our home and the holiday facility will complete in late summer of 2019 and ‘open for business’ from September. We provide three types of 3 to 7 day holiday experience:

  • Independent Stays
  • Exclusive Group Bookings, and
  • Activity Holidays.

The Activity Holidays are being designed for eight guests staying on site and up to a further four guests who choose to stay with other local accommodation providers. Led by professional tutors, they will range from kayaking and fishing, creative writing, art, yoga, drystone walling, coastal and hill walking.

We are delighted to announce there are already two partnerships in advanced stages of development:

Led by Poilin McGowan and Tanis Gordon Smith we are shaping Art Courses . Professional artists and co-owners of the Open Door Studio, visit their Facebook page or write to them via ;


We will host Aoife Kane’s immersive Yoga Retreats and Training Courses . Aoife brings international experience of providing the very best of tailor-made events, including expertly provided catering arrangements. Find out more via

We will publish a forward diary of courses and retreats on our Booking pages early in 2019. This will itemise the course activity, dates, duration and how many places remain available.
