This squared off block of a house could almost be ugly yet it has an understated elegance, a sense of solidity and of comfort to it! Sligo is one of the least appreciated counties in Ireland and to ask many young people they would mention the surfing while older people might mention Yeats but it has so much more to offer. The views around the county are spectacular, the mountains may not be very high but are full of history and the welcome is warm. It is easy to see why the residents of Hazelwood chose to live there!
