Holidays - Part Two

So here is Part Two of my review of our hols in the lovely Sligo!!

We stayed in the Cois Re Apartments in Strandhill and they were lovely. Two bedrooms, sitting/dining/kitchen a bathroom and one of the bedrooms is ensuite. Carmel was very friendly and nothing was a problem, it was nice to deal with someone who was nice!!

It's a nice nearly ten minute walk into Strandhill from here but if the weather is good it's lovely as you can see the sea all the way down!  There is a Spar shop which has most of everything you could need for a holiday stay and the staff were very friendly too!

There is a great little playground beside the GAA pitch and we had lots of fun in there on the days when it was just a little too cold to visit the beach!

We ventured out and about two of the days the first trip was into Sligo where we ate in Source Sligo (probably enough said in Part One!). We found some really nice little shops - Inspire, Unit 10 First Avenue, Quayside SC - great little treasure trove of goodies including wool, sewing kits, cards, books and kids toys.  Hargadons Wine Shop in Johnston Court SC - my other half got 'lost' in here for quite a while!

But probably the find of the trip was The Roundabout, Gallery & Craft Loft in Collooney. It is located above The Farm Shop & Cafe which stock lovely local & artisan produce and have a great cafe.
But upstairs is a treasure trove of craft and goodies!

The Bull @ The Roundabout

They have art, handknitted crafts, a jeweller, woodcraft, beautiful handbags (literally had to be dragged away), cards, books - the list goes on. They are very friendly and made us feel very welcome even though our little lady was running riot around the place!

Overall a great holiday to Sligo and I would highly recommend everyone to go!!!

Thanks for reading!
