If you want tranquillity, amazing views, and relaxation, this is the place for you. And on those days when you wish to venture out, the beautiful west of Ireland can be explored. Why not visit Westport, one of Ireland's prettiest towns with its bustling atmosphere and great pubs. Then follow in the footsteps of Saint Patrick and climb Croagh Patrick to be rewarded with beautiful views over Clew Bay. Then take the drive from Louisburgh to Leenane, absolutely breathtaking scenery.
Cosmopolitan Galway City is just 50 kilometres away with theatres, cinemas, shopping and an abundance of excellent restaurants and pubs, and not forgetting the famous Galway races and annual arts festival in July each year.
The area of Connemara is not to be missed with it's beautiful beaches, mountains and lakes.
If a round of golf sounds good, then head to Ballinrobe Championship Parkland golf course, just 26 kilometres away.
Fishing boats and engines are available for hire locally, and can be located for you on the shore of either Lough Mask or nearby Lough Corrib. If you would like more information regarding boat hire, please send an email.
This is one of the best houses we've had in the many years we've been coming to Ireland as a group. The house is beautiful, has generously proportioned rooms and is in very good condition: furniture, fittings and fixtures all virtually pristine. The kitchen is well equipped with sufficient pots, pans, glassware and crockery for 6 people, as well as all the tools you could wish for, including oven gloves. Nice touch: Not only were cleaning agents and cloths of all types supplied, including dishwasher and washing machine tabs, Siobhan also left a welcome basket, with tea, milk and other necessities - like biscuits! - to start us off. There was also plenty of toilet paper, gas in the grill, and wood for the stove. The house is located at the end of a secluded drive with a spectacular view over Lough Mask, and is only a 10-min drive from Clonbur, which has a well supplied grocery store and 2 pubs with good food, both with music sessions. There are larger grocery stores about 20 mins drive away. The location is excellent for exploring Galway (ca. 1 hr to the city), Mayo and the wilds of Connemara, with lots of superb walking and fabulous vistas across mountains and lakes. We were lucky enough to get walking tips from neighbours doing some farm work next door and had 2 excellent long walks using the OS map Siobhan also kindly supplied. The big stack of brochures in the hallway with info about restaurants, excursions and sightseeing options was very useful, as was her folder with machine operation instructions, local restaurants and shops, etc. We were close enough to climb Croagh Patrick (challenging steep climb) had we wanted to, but the cloud cover was too unreliable when we were there. We had no rain all week, although it was October, and the changing skyscape over the lake was always a joy to watch morning and evening with a cuppa while sitting on Siobhan's lovely deck.There are play areas inside the house and in the garden for kids, with lots of toys supplied. This house would be good for couples looking for a secluded getaway, or a family with children who like walking, as well as for a group of friends like us who like to sightsee, walk and cook. Our one regret was that we never got to meet Siobhan in person, but phoned and texted her several times. She was an assiduous host even across the "ether", making sure we had all we needed, and made a very friendly and helpful impression. A fantastic experience all round!
Our second visit to Kilbride Point and it won't be our last. The property is clean, comfortable and easy to live in for two weeks. Siobhan & Des couldn't have been more helpful hosts.
Even though the weather wasn't 100% on our side we still managed to get out and about and indulge in our passion for photography and eating in cosy tea rooms and cafes.
We ate out most evenings in Clonbur prefering Eddies Bar, some nights we picked up a 'ready meal' from the deli in Cong, not only was that great food but you were treated to the great Irish banter from the proprioter and his wife. Everyone is so friendly in the area and always more than happy to pass the time of day.
We like hoildays when you can just get to your destination and thats it your hoilday starts and we have found this in Kilbride Point and surrounding area.
Kilbride point is fantastic . Siobhan and Des have provided a wonderful home and location to unwind . We made sure we spent as much time enjoying the house as well as touring the west and it's glorious scenery.
We loved the house and location so much we hope to return next year. Thank you both for an unforgettable stay.
Kind regards the MC DONAGH family from England
We are just back from another brilliant holiday at Kilbride Point. This has been our third time staying there and we will definitely be returning in the future. Siobhan and Des, the owners, are so helpful and thoughtful. As we were staying over the Halloween holidays with children they left the usual hamper of goodies for us on arrival along with lots of wonderful Halloween goodies, treats and activities for the children. The previous times that we stayed here was during the summer with decent weather and lovely scenery. We booked the holiday for autumn and were slightly anxious about the early nights and poor weather. The truth of the matter was that it was every bit as good during autumn as summer as the scenery was spectacular and the early evenings sitting beside the log burner with a glass of wine and relaxing was brilliant. Thank you Siobhan and Des once again and we appreciate everything you have done.
The Gormley family.
