Townhouses set in restored Palladian courtyards from 1771 in grounds of Markree Castle. A tranquill riverside setting with all amenities available locally. Sauna and hot tub in walled garden.
County Sligo's striking landscape has remained relatively unaffected by the passage of time. The beautiful countryside, the stunning coastline, the rambling hills and mountains provide a wonderfully interesting location for a leisure break. Wit its unspoilt beauty, the area has much to offer you from picturesque driving routes and equestrian pursuits to gold, fishing, walking and water sports.
While here, why not glide across Lough Gill and visit the Lake Isle of Innisfree, as immortalised by W B Yeats, visit the megalithic tombs at Carrowmore or perhals take a leisurely walk up Knocknarea mountain and see the tomb of Queen Maeve of Connaught and take in the spectacular views over Ballisodare Bay and the Atlantic. It's a small wonder that the area has been named the "land of heart's desire".
Set in the heartland of the county, Markree Castle Homefarm is a reconstruction of an 18th Century courtyard complex of luxury apartments set within Markree Castle demesne.
