Milk Harbour Holidays

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

“Welcome to our website, and we hope that we can welcome you soon to our home in north Sligo. We are located right on the Wild Atlantic Way on the southern shores of  Donegal Bay with easy access to Sligo, Leitrim and South West Donegal, and are only an hour’s drive from Knock Airport.

We offer four double en-suite bedrooms and  can host a maximum of 8 guests for short stays of a minimum of three nights. There are plenty of places in our home for you to hideaway and relax or be more active! As well as your bedroom, you can make yourself at home in the guest sitting and dining room and a further guest sitting room, both of which overlook a harbour and have woodburning stoves. You also have access to a boathouse and studio with stunning views across to Slieve League, and another wood burning stove.   If you want a more active holiday, you can try your hand at table tennis or we can arrange for private yoga lessons  and other activities such as art classes. We also have  kayaks available for guest use, tide and weather depending (Steve has final say on whether it’s safe or not).

Update:    September 2019
The refurbishment of our home and studio is now complete and we are  ‘open for business’ for independent short stays. We are also hosting two courses this autumn:

  • a yoga retreat led by Aoife Kane on 27th to 29th September. Find out more via . This is now Sold Out, but please let Aoife know if you would like details of future events.
