Milk Harbour Holidays

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

“We provide a holiday destination on the west coast of Ireland. It is designed and equipped for our guests to engage in a range of activities, both on site and in the locality.

The main house has four en-suite bedrooms, each with a super king size bed which can be arranged as twin beds. The ground floor has the breakfast and living  room, with a ‘coffee dock’ for all day use and on the upper floor, a further sitting room. Within the boathouse there is a large studio and activity space with access to kayaks, bicycles, the gardens and the shoreline from our private slipway.
