Steeped in nature, tradition and heritage, McGuire's Cottages are welcoming holiday accommodation havens with their own story to tell.
Owned by Sinead and Pascal Gillard, the cottages have individual personalised names which add to their wonderful sense of character. McGuire's Cottages, a complex of eight cottages was built by Sinead's grandfather in the late seventies with each cottage being named after his eight grandchildren.
At the time, McGuire's was one of the first ever self-catering accommodation businesses set up in Ireland and it is now one of the most popular in Co. Leitrim -attracting visitors from Ireland, UK, Germany,France Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, United States and Australia who come to de-stress, fish and enjoy the relaxed pace of rural life here. French and German are spoken fluently at McGuire's Cottages.
The self catering cottages overlook the picturesque Acres Lake, approximately one km from the village of Drumshanbo in Leitrim, the North West of Ireland. There are seven cottages; four which sleep six people and three which sleep four people.
These detached, traditional style cottages are 3 star Fáilte Ireland Approved and all come with a historic half-door, open-hearth fire and flag-stone floor. In contrast to this taste of the past, each also has all the modern conveniences of present-day living.
