Two bedrooms, sleeps seven; 7 acres of privacy, mountain and ocean views

Situated in Kilsallagh Lower, just a 15 minute drive to Westport (Ireland's Tidiest Town, 2001, 2006, 2008) and about 10 minutes from Louisburgh, this comfortable vacation home features privacy, every comfort and convenience, and the certainty of breathtaking views and landscape.

Every amenity is included: washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher, gas and electric range, gas fireplace, hair appliances, satellite TV and DVD player. With seven acres, much of it trees, surrounding the house, you can enjoy the privacy of the property, or hike the countryside, or to beaches nearby. As the house overlooks Clew Bay, sunsets here are nothing short of spectacular, especially on long summer nights when the light can linger indefinitely. Ard Muire is the perfect setting for an unforgettable Irish holiday.

My father purchased this property some time in the 1980s, but didn't build on it until 1992. He had built a house in Cloonagh, closer in toward Westport and, though it is a beautiful, enchanted part of Westport, he just couldn't forget the gorgeous view over Clew Bay from the Kilsallagh property, He started work on this house in Kilsallagh Lower while still living - on holidays, anyway - in Cloonagh. Truly, I doubt there is another view quite as beautiful many places in the world.

We'll defer to the English novelist, William Makepeace Thackeray who visited Westport in 1842, and wrote of the area, 'The most beautiful view I ever saw in the World. It forms an event in one's life to have seen that place so beautiful and so unlike other beauties that I know of. Were such beauties lying on English shores it would be a World's wonder perhaps, if it were on the Mediterranean or Baltic, English travellers would flock to it by hundreds. Why not come and see it in Ireland!'

Add to this that Westport is County Mayo's premier tourist destination, and considered one of the liveliest and most charming towns in the West of Ireland, and the visitor can be assured of the best in scenery, food, entertainment, attractions, craic and fond memories.

we had a family holiday in the house, what a great house had everything we needed and very clean, loads of space inside the house. my son has a wheelchair and was plenty of room space for him to get around. will be looking to book in the near future again. The views were amazing and how much ground you had around the outside of house was great. Was met at the house with the friends owner and any questions we had he was able to answer. The house would be a great place for many different people and of all ages.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words. We're very happy you enjoyed your stay and found the house provided for your needs. Yes, the views are incredible, even when the weather isn't at its best (but much better when it is).

It would certainly be our pleasure to have you stay there again.

Again, we appreciate your thoughtfulness in providing a review, especially one as positive as this.

The house with spectacular views.

Our stay was short but very comfortable, it felt like we were there more than five days. Great house plenty of room and very clean, well equipped it had every thing we needed and more. The views from the house are amazing, very private. With a phone call we made arrangements to meet someone who guided us straight to the property this was great and he was very helpful, everything was well organised and all my questions were answered by the owners of the property prior to our visit . The property is also in an ideal position for Louisburgh and Westport, I would highly recommend visiting the Tavern pub they do excellent food, and if your feeling energetic a walk up Croagh Patrick, do the pub after the walk though the food is so good you will be stuffed. We all had an excellent stay in Ireland, I would recommend this property to my family and friends an excellent place to stay.
