Hi Redkite, I've been working from home for a few years now in the area you mention, so might be able to provide some insight.
First of all - to get broadband from Sky/Vodafone/Eir etc.. you will need a landline, and your line will need to be near enough to one of the cabinets to be able to avail of a fibre connection. To determine this you should try to find out from someone in the exact area who knows exactly how far out the fibre cable has been laid. Don't rely on coverage maps or anything that any support centre will tell you - it is unlikely to be accurate enough.
If fibre is not an option, then I can recommend Imagine LTE. Their mast is in Kilchreest, and most houses in the areas you mention should have line of sight. If you call them out, they'll do a site test to determine if you can get it. Imagine LTE broadband will cost around €60 per month. Their service works well for the most part, and on occasion when it doesn't, they are responsive enough.
Lightnet are also available in the area, but from my house they could not get line of sight to their mast (which is also in Kilchreest as I understand).
