The space

You will have your own bedroom, bathroom has to be shared. The house has central heating, stove in the living room and - if needed - electric heating in your room and the bathroom. I am not providing traditional Irish breakfast, but there will be cereals, muesli and milk available. Coffee and tea is also provided and you are welcome to help yourself.

Guest access

Guests can access the living room, kitchen and the bathroom.

Interaction with guests

As I am living in the area for more than 20 years I can help people with information about the region and the area

The neighbourhood

The cottage is surrounded by farmland with sheep and cattle at the end of a long lane (An boharin fada). There is a neighbor house further down the road. The location is extremely quiet. Sligo town and Strandhill are at about 5 minutes away by car. Taxi service from town or from Strandhill is about 12 to 15 €.

Getting around

There are parking facilities directly outside the house, public transport does not exist nearby.

Other things to note

As the cottage is in a remote location transport (car, bike) is essential. There is no public transport in the area. I ask guests to arrive at about 6 o'clock as I am working night shifts. If you arrive at a later time we can make different arrangements.

Great value for money, quiet an scenical location, surrounded by field with sheeps. Very easy to communicate with Ortwin, he was very kind in giving us the use of the other room because it was free. Absolutely to suggest!

Ortwin cottage is nothing less that you would expect when you come to visit Ireland. Is located in a splendid country side, he welcomes you warmly, his daughter was visiting him at the same time we stayed there was really great. I really enjoyed talking to both of them and they recommend us a nice pub in a nearby city where to eat and have a nice pint. The house is really warm and the electric blanket made it even a better experience. We loved the fireplace in the living room. Thanks a lot!

We really enjoyed staying at Ortwin's place. Everything was prepared, when we arrived. He even provided us some cereals for breakfast, which we really appreciated. He also gave us some useful tips, what to do in the area. Thank you, Ortwin!

This was a fantastic little cottage down a rural country lane. Waking up to be amongst fields was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage was very well presented, modernised inside and was very pleasantly surprised by the modern amenities. Ortwin was a really lovely person to chat to, and accommodated us very last minute. He made us feel very welcome to anything we needed and ee will definitely be back :) Thanks

Ortwin is a friendly host, and his cottage is located in a very peaceful location. The place is a bit remote but easy to find. The bathroom was very clean.

Ortwin User ProfileOrtwin is a superhost.

I am easy going, but have some principles. I work day- and night-shifts over the weekend, during the week I look after my companies, the house and the garden. I like socializing, reading, and working. As a host I will give you a key and you come and go as you like. I trust you that you respect my privacy and my property.
