About Edwin and Maria Rosier
Hi. I'm Edwin Rosier. I was born and educated In Ipswich, Suffolk England and had the good fortune to marry an Irish girl. Her family are dotted all over Ireland so our 'home in Ireland' enables us to visit often and spend time with them. We welcome guests to use our home throughout the year, and aim to ensure that your stay is as enjoyable as ours have always been! Please look at our guest reviews to see what they are saying about their stay.
Edwin and Maria Rosier purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Edwin and Maria Rosier chose Curneen
There are many beautiful places in the world to visit but few so unspoilt and yet so 'human' as in the small towns and villages of rural Ireland. Nature abounds with wildlife and a beauty that is unsurpassed. Come to Ireland to enjoy the culture, people and places in their traditional state - you will reflect, reminisce, relax and who knows, you may even decide to retire here!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage is located central in Connaught and as such provides access in all directions to the counties of Leitrim, Sligo, Roscommon and Galway. We may be biased but we truly believe that Mayo is the most beautiful county of Ireland. It's rugged scenery is both unassuming and delightful aligned as it is both North and West by the Atlantic coast. The many lakes, forests, woodlands and parks with their tranquil walks and varied flora and fauna make for a truly relaxing experience. The small towns of Mayo with their shops, pubs and restaurants provide for variety seldom found in larger more modern high streets and malls.

Holidays in Ireland‘s Wild West
Cosy country cottage in a quiet lane a few kilometres from Claremorris. Completely furnished, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer... We loved the Irish country-style interior.
Very friendly owners and housekeeper who provide all the information and help you need for a perfect holiday.
We took the house as a base for outings as far as Donegal and the Cliffs of Moher.
Dear Sandra and family. Thank you for providing us with such detailed feedback about your stay. I think you all win the prize for having explored farthest afield during your week long stay. We are so glad that you made the most of your time here in beautiful County Mayo - please do come back soon. With our best wishes. Edwin & Maria Rosier
Wundervolle Unterkunft im County Mayo
Wir (zwei Erwachsene und zwei Teenager) haben eine sehr erholsame Ferienwoche in dem schönen Haus von Edwin und Maria verbracht.
Das Haus war sehr sauber, als wir ankamen. Die Räume sind gemütlich eingerichtet und sehr gut ausgestattet. In der Küche war wirklich alles vorhanden, was wir für das tägliche Kochen gebraucht haben.
Besonders die Lage haben wir genossen. Das Haus liegt mitten in der Natur umgeben von einem großen Garten. Es ist absolut ruhig und friedlich. Direkt vom Haus aus kann man wundervolle Spaziergänge unternehmen.
Claremorris ist in 10 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen und dort kann man gut alle Einkäufe erledigen.
Die Region Mayo bietet viel an Sehenswertem und die Landschaft ist toll. Man ist schon viel mit dem Auto unterwegs, wenn man was sehen will, aber uns hat das nicht gestört. Es war schön, abends in das ruhige Haus zu kommen und das Kaminfeuer anzumachen.
Vielen Dank an Edwin und Maria sowie anTrish, die uns bei der Ankunft mit allen wichtigen Infos versorgt hat.
Liebe Iris und Familie
Vielen Dank für Ihre wundervolle und informative Bewertung. Wir sind so froh, dass Sie einen angenehmen Aufenthalt hatten und freuen uns vielleicht auf Ihre Rückkehr in die Zukunft - Sie wären natürlich sehr willkommen!

Wonderful place to stay in County Mayo
We (two adults and two teenagers) spent a very relaxing holiday week in the beautiful house of Edwin and Maria.
The house was very clean when we arrived. The rooms are comfortably furnished and very well equipped. In the kitchen was really everything available, what we needed for the daily cooking.
Especially the location we enjoyed. The house is surrounded by nature surrounded by a large garden. It is absolutely quiet and peaceful. Directly from the house you can take wonderful walks.
Claremorris can be reached in 10 minutes by car and there you can do well all shopping.
The Mayo area offers a lot to see and the scenery is great. There is a lot of traveling by car if you want to see something, but it did not bother us. It was nice to come to the quiet house in the evening and turn on the fire.
Many thanks to Edwin and Maria and toTrish, who provided us with all the important information on arrival.
Exactly as advertised . Rural farmhouse is remote and peaceful ! Enjoyed local towns of Kiltimagh and Claremorris . Good location for exploring Westport and Galway . Well supplied kitchen . Central heating supplemented by burning peat and coal in fireplace which we really enjoyed ! Very cosy on wet nights ! Low head clearance ( if over 5'10" ) into kitchen . Edwin visited us and was very friendly and hospitable !. Would recommend and would like to stay again.
Thank you for taking the time to provide this informative review, and of course for being such wonderful guests!! - it was indeed my pleasure to have met you both, at the cottage and also whilst cycling on the wonderful Greenway from Westport to Achill! You will of course always be most welcome as and when you choose to return again to beautiful County Mayo, Ireland.
Great house and lots of lovely scenery
We had a great holiday Beautifully decorated very warm and cosy. There was everything you needed at the house. Quiet and secluded our dog was very safe in the large garden. Would hope to stay again
We are just so very glad that you enjoyed your stay. Our home feels all the more satisfying for having had lovely people stay in it to share it's charm and simplicity. You are most welcome of course to come again at any time to enjoy the beauty and tranquility that is County Mayo, Ireland. Warm regards.from Edwin & Maria.
nice quiet place
A very nice and beautifully restored cottage. A little bit difficult to find when arriving the first time, but it is set in a nice and quiet location. We felt very comfortable during our stay.
This lovely old farmhouse was a delight to stay in. Well equipped, very comfortable and generously stocked with fuel to guarantee warmth - the house is both centrally heated & has a fantastic open fire. There is a great garden to enjoy and the setting is so peaceful that we largely just forgot about the world beyond the gates.
However, when we stirred ourselves, it is also well situated for exploring Co.Mayo, with Westport and Achill Island to the North, Cong, Leenane & Ashford Castle to the South & Knock to the East. There are also a plethora of interesting old ruins & lakes in the area. The mountains and beaches of the West coast are well worth the drive to explore and much excellent seafood chowder was happily consumed in various pubs & restaurants en route.
The Rosiers are generous hosts and Trish the housekeeper was even there to meet us, fire lit for our arrival - wonderful! We would highly recommend this property for a real 'getaway' & time to relax.
If you are planning to fly to Dublin or Knock Ireland West airports then car hire can be booked in advance. Book through Ryanair using Hertz, or use auto-europe.co.uk, who in our experience are excellent. Driving in Ireland is straightforward and most of the rural roads are quiet and easy to navigate. No matter how long you have to spend, Mayo is a laid-back county where you will discover authentic Irish hospitality at its best. Our Farmhouse holiday cottage is located in County Mayo, Ireland only a few miles from the towns of Kiltimagh and Claremorris with their many restaurants and amenities. Galway, Westport, Ballina and the Mayo county town of Castlebar are all within an hour's drive as is the west coat, Joyce's Country and the beautiful Connemara National Park. Within easy reach is the Atlantic coast, Joyce's Country and the beautiful Connemara National Park. Westport and clew bay offer local fishing, golf, horse riding. There are many historical sites and places of interest to visit traditional pubs, 'ceol agus craic' and excellent food. Visit the town of Westport, at the base of the sacred mountain of Croagh Patrick. One of Europe`s most famous pilgrimage sites, the mountain is often climbed barefoot by devotees of St. Patrick but anyone is free to make the trip. Those that decide to do so are rewarded with stunning views of the island-strewn Clew Bay. Westport also offers less strenuous pursuits, including golf, fishing and cycling around town. Westport’s cheerful, multi-coloured shop fronts jostle for attention with an attractive selection of pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants. Little wonder it has become one of Ireland’s most popular and cosmopolitan holiday destinations. One of the few planned towns in Ireland the beautiful and unique boulevard known as The Mall was designed in the 18th Century by James Wyatt. Just a short drive from Westport lies Achill Island, a popular summer holiday destination for locals. Connected to the mainland by a two-lane bridge at Achill Sound, the large island offers lots of outdoor activities, with several blue flag beaches, surfing, hill-walking, wind surfing and golf all available to keep you busy. The island makes an excellent spot for a relaxing getaway and a couple of nights here is sure to leave you feeling completely de-stressed.
Driving in Ireland in straightforward and most of the rural roads are quiet and easy to navigate. No matter how long you have to spend, Mayo is a laidback county where you will discover authentic Irish hospitality at its best.The rugged and untamed wilderness of County Mayo on the
west coast of Ireland often overlooked by tourists yet the unspoiled and isolated nature of the place is precisely what makes this area such an excellent holiday destination. It may not suit those looking for wild parties or bustling resort towns but for anyone that enjoys the great outdoors, traditional hospitality and getting back to nature, County Mayo will certainly appeal to you. Ireland`s third largest county. Mayo offers a variety of scenery from the fishing villages on the coast to dramatic inland mountains, including a famous hilltop shrine. Some of the highlights of a holiday in County Mayo include a visit to the pretty town of Ballina on the River Moy, around 35 miles from Knock. Famous for its salmon fishing, the town really comes alive during the annual Salmon Festival in July, which involves live music, dancing and lots of children`s activities. The town is steeped in culture and history and is the main center for shopping and entertainment in northern Mayo.
