TESTIMONIALS

We recently had a perfect 3 night stay at Milk Harbour. The location is fantastic enjoying wonderful sea, island and sunset views. The accommodation is new and to a very high standard and comfort level. There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area, great walks, Ben Bulben, beaches and more. Our hosts Geraldine and Steve were so helpful with lots of local knowledge and tips. We will definitely be back!

A true gem, Milk Harbour is hidden away in its own little bay, facing out into the ever changing seascape of Dernish Island and the Streedagh peninsula. Our hosts Steve and Geraldine were amazing and everything was to the highest standard. The Boat house apartment, where we stayed was bright, airy and beautifully warm with cosy underfloor heating. Stunning views in all directions from the large triple glazed windows, and what a place to watch the sunset over the sea! Steve entertained us with his knowledge of the history and tales of the locality. We were delighted to discover several stunning walks nearby on his advice. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and the many little extras were greatly appreciated making our mini staycation in uncertain times, one of the best ever. We hope to return to Milk Harbour for a return visit before too long!

Just spent a fabulous few days at Milk harbour on a cycling and walking break. The accomodation and situation is very well set up for cyclists, being on the wild Atlantic way. Steve and Geraldine introduced us to Wild Atlantic wheels who delivered lovely Orbea bikes to Milk Harbour.

Gabrielle and I spent a very enjoyable 4 days at Milk Harbour late July and will definitely come again.  The location is stunning and there are many interesting places to visit not only in Sligo but also Leitrim and Donegal which are close by.

What a magical stay at a magical place with magical people! I throughly enjoyed my stay at Milk Harbour under the care & guidance of Steve & Geraldine – truly fabulous hosts! My apartment (The Boat House) was impeccably clean & decorated extremely tastefully – Steve & Geraldine really factored everything in whilst creating this pocket of pure luxury; they left no stone unturned & it’s evident the minute you arrive – such thought, effort & careful consideration was applied throughout! The Boat House has the most incredible views and immediately offers a place of tranquility & zen. My stay was made even more special by both Steve & Geraldine. They are extremely warm & kind people & incredibly knowledgable. As Arnie once said, “I’ll be back” ! And I’m living for that moment already fabulous retreat in itself. Milk Harbour and it’s hinterland has so much to offer. Your home, apartments & grounds are magnificent and styled with such elegance; a hidden gem indeed!”

This is easily the BEST place to stay if you're planning on making the most of Sligo, Leitrim and the south of Donegal. It's literally 10-15mins from all the big sights, and what's truly wonderful is that you also can sit and relax, sipping your fresh morning coffee, looking across the way at Classiebawn and the Slieve League cliffs beyond. The accommodation is spacious, clean, fresh and the lovely owners have thought of everything, with all the mod cons you might need. Highly recommended, 5 stars !

Myself, husband and 2 teenagers stayed in the forge. The house is absolutely beautiful with 2 ensuite bedrooms, kitchen, living room everything is to an extremely high standard and beautiful. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Steve and Geraldine are lovely and have thought of everything you may need. We appreciated the binoculars, fab towels (including for the beach), fleeces, bottle of wine and the lovely natural bathroom and kitchen products. The weather was bad, but location allowed us to do plenty of touring and we loved siting in with the fire anyway. There are plenty of shops close by and 2 lovely resteraunts (harrisons and langs) , although you would need a car, they're no more than 5 min drive away. Steve also provided us with table tennis and indoor badminton which got plenty of use! Would recommend this place to anyone and look forward to returning!

We have just returned from Milk Harbour Holiday Apartments.What an amazing restorative place it is.Steve and Geraldine were tremendous hosts by setting the tone from the very outset of our booking with their careful informative and helpful response emails to their warm and genuine welcome on arrival.The Forge is so cosy and comfortable not to mention being beyond well equipped.The beds are another level of comfort.Luxurious products abound in every corner you can imagine.The still and tranquil harbour brings peace to the soul.It is a place where you can re-connect with your inner self, with the world of nature and with others if you so want.We can’t believe we were so lucky to find this beautiful place and a really engaging and kind couple to be our hosts.We wish you every success going forward and will most definitely be back.

What an amazing place for a break. The Forge is just gorgeous, right beside the sea, the views are spectacular and the pictures don’t do it justice, you must see to believe! The hosts have thought of everything you could possibly need, the beds are so comfortable and there is a huge emphasis on attention to detail. The warmest welcome awaits, along with locally sourced treats and lots of local knowledge. Great location near lots of lovely beaches, Ben Bulben and Sligo town where there are lots of lovely shops and restaurants. We will definitely visit again.

What an amazing experience Steve and Geraldine have created!We stayed a week and did so much in the area - sea swimming (at the doorstep!), hiking, paddle boarding, cheeky outdoor pints, beach trips and more.The house itself was gorgeous, modern and well equipped - stupendous sunsets included! Lots of lovely chats and banter rounded up a wonderful week in Sligo :)

We stayed in the Forge 2 bed apartment for three nights. Spacious apartment kept to a very high standard. Absolutely everything you could need and more than you would expect in a self catering apartment; lovely touches left for guests to make their stays easier and more comfortable. Fabulous hosts who are on hand to help in any way. Definitely will be back!

This was without doubt the best self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in! Absolutely everything is perfect and to a very high standard. Not only that, Geraldine and Steve are fantastic hosts, so welcoming and enthusiastic about the many treasures in the area: walks, activities, shops & restaurants. We can't wait to go back!
