County Mayo Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom 4 bath, cathederal ceilings, riverrock fireplace

Here at Eaglewood Lodge we strive to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Our aim is to make our guests feel like they are at home and to relax and unwind. We are located in the Partry mountains halfway between Westport and Leenane. We cater for up to twelve guests. The open plan design with cathedral ceilings and river rock fireplace is truly amazing. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor and two upstairs. Also on the ground floor is a guest bathroom. The dining room with its large wooden table can seat twelve. There is seating for four more at the kitchen table. Upstairs there is the balcony with TV, library, and DVD for watching your favorite movie, soap or football game. On each wing of the balcony are two bedrooms one with king size and single bed and the other with two doubles and a single bed. An upstairs bathroom serves the two bedrooms.

Westport: We are located in one of the most unspoilt and untouched places in Ireland. The scenery changes every time the light changes which is pretty often around here . The beautiful town of Westport is a twelve minute drive with plenty to see and more to do. There is a wide variety of restaurants and bars . Croagh Patrick Ireland's holy mountain is a fifteen minute drive and holds it's annual pilgrimage in July, but it is now climbed by people everyday as the sights over Clew bay are wonderful , on a good day one can see all the 365 islands in the bay. It is also a great form of exercise and takes about three hours up and down, make sure to take suitable clothes and shoes as the temperature may be ten degrees colder on top and don't forget water.

Connemara: One of the few remaining Irish speaking areas in Ireland ,it is truly unique with the Twelve Bens mountain range to the Maumturks and beyond. Everything is at your doorstep here at Eaglewood lodge

We are in the heart of good fishing with river, lake and sea all near by. There is adventure all around with the largest race in Europe taking place in August with over 3000 participants taking part.

The mountains here are majestic and mysterious. In fact in 2014 we are offering gold panning days, in the river and streams nearby as the area is rich in gold deposits so who knows you could be taking home a big nugget. Please inquire about this if interested

In 2014 we are also starting a touring service for those who want to discover where the back roads and byways of Ireland lead to and together with our sister company Offthebeatentrack.ie we are the base for mountain hiking and cycling. A walking guide is available to take you out along the tracks or higher in the mountains if so required. Please let us know in advance if interested.

There is a gas bbq on the balcony for oudoor dining with ample seating and tables.

I was born just 100metres from the house and played in the field as a child.

Michael Gavin purchased this cabin in 2007

The uniqueness of staying in a log cabin in Ireland is rare and here at Eaglewood Lodge we offer top quality accomodation where you can relax and enjoy your long deserved holiday with your family and friends.

I designed and built this log cabin after spending many years working in different countries and keeping notes and photo's of different ideas that appealed to me, so hopefully when you stay here you will feel at home in a warm comfortable environment

LOVELY HOUSE - PITY ABOUT THE GARDEN!

  • 3 of 5
The house was great, exactly what it says on the site - a luxurious log cabin. The garden was not so great. More of a wilderness than a garden! If you just want to relax inside, this is the house for you. But if you have kids it's a definite no no because there is nowhere for them to play outside. Having said that, the scenery is beautiful.

Owner's Response: We are always trying new things at our Eco friendly Eaglewood Lodge and this year we decided to let part of the garden go back to nature to keep in line with our Eco environment. It has been truly amazing to witness the amount of wild flowers, insects, frogs, grasshoppers, birds, butterflies and a whole range of other insects that make this habitat their home compared to a well kept lawn. To follow on from this we will be converting half of the garden to nature next spring and the other half will be a playground with swings, slides, and other amenities for kids to play in.
Sincerely
Michael Gavin

BEST WEEKEND AWAY EVER

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of 11 girls that go away every year and we are all in agreement that Eaglewood was everything and more we hoped for. Beautiful house and the personal touches were very homely. We were snug, warm and had plenty of hot water all weekend. We enjoyed the company of the local dogs too. The house is equipped excellently from the kitchen to the entertainment side. The juke box was a big hit and the CD collection is unreal.
Very spacious but yet had the comforting feel of a small house.

Michael was very welcoming on our arrival and was very helpful from our initial contact on booking the house, and with any queries and requests we had, as well as during our entire stay.
The surrounding area is just to die for. The feeling of isolation is great but yet not far away from civilization if needed. We did walk to the lake, tough going but worth it. It was the only time we left the house as we were so comfortable.

We will definitely be returning to Eaglewood and would recommend a stay there to anyone, be it a girl’s weekend away or a romantic getaway.

Well done Michael keep up the good work.

SWISS CHALET EXPERIENCE IN THE HEART OF CO. MAYO

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at Eaglewood Lodge this summer for a week's stay. Right from the start owner Michael Gavin made us feel truly welcome. The lodge comes equipped with 'everything', its spacious, comfortable, cosy and oozes with character. Hand built by Michael and his team, the lodge is the epitome of experiencing a swiss chalet holiday in the heart of co. mayo! All amenities are provided for including a 1950's Junk box which rolls out all the classics! Visitors need to bring nothing but their luggage a smile! I would highly recommend this lodge for a unique holiday experience in the heart of stunning co. Mayo

MAGICAL!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family came together at Eaglewood Lodge to celebrate two very special birthdays. We could not have chosen a more magical venue.
The Lodge itself is splendid! The facilities are excellent being well-stocked, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Its position, whilst giving the feeling of isolation is, in fact, very close to the local town and the welcome and help we received from the family on arrival and throughout our stay was heart-warming.
The memories we made during our stay will remain with us always – cold frosty nights sitting in front of a real log fire listening to songs on the amazing juke box; wonderful walks starting right outside our door through some of the most beautiful countryside I have ever seen and some amazing evenings spent enjoying the ‘crack’ in local pubs.
I would recommend Eaglewood Lodge to everyone, whatever you are looking for in a holiday I can guarantee you will find it at Eaglewood Lodge.

LUXURY RETREAT IN WESTPORT

  • 5 of 5
Eaglewoodlodge was greater than our expectations -we wanted luxury, comfort, beautiful surroundings and we got this and so much more. The lodge is great for a family get away, a holiday with friends or even a romantic break -with the accomodation being first class, The remote landscape was great to explore -with the chance to meet the locals (lambs in the garden, sheep dogs and regular visits by a variety of birds) whilst being close enough to super coastline, hillside walks, villages and great pubs/restaurants. The welcome and the hospitality shown by the owner just added to the sense of being totally looked after,. I cannot recommend this highly enough and plan to go back again and again.
