Just fifteen minutes from the thriving tourist town of Westport, Louisburgh nestles on the shores of Clew Bay and is one of the nicest locations on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Highly convenient for exploring Mayo and Connemara - Killary Harbour, Ireland's only fjord is just a 20 minute drive through stunning countryside. Another thirty minutes along the Atlantic coast will bring you through the heart of Connemara as far as Clifden. This is a beautiful location for your vacation.

The unspoilt and safe beaches at Old Head and Carrowmore are within a mile of the cottage while the famous Carrowinsky surfing beach is less than 5 miles away. Louisburgh is the ideal location for hillwalking, angling, cycling or just a relaxing family break. Surf school nearby and surf board, bike hire also available locally.

The Heathers is a well equipped, charming and spacious cottage (1500sq ft; 145sq m ) located just a 5 minute stroll from the village centre with views of Clew Bay and the Atlantic beyond. A perfect vacation rental!

Fantastic well equipped house in perfect location to explore Mayo and Galway

  • 5 of 5

Great house with lots of space. Very well equipped and all modern facilities. Perfect for family with two young children and safe for them in the cul-de-sac to play. Location is quiet and tucked away but within easy 5 min walk of Louisburgh. A great base to explore Westport, Croagh Patrick, Newport and Achill and further afield to Connemara, Cong, Clifton and Galway City for day trips and when you get back settle down in front of the fire.

Maigh Eo Vacation Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, clean, and comfortable home for our family of 4 adults and 2 children. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and an easy stroll to the village of Louisburgh. Nicely located for some day trips to Westport, Clare Island, Achill Island, and Ballintubber Abbey.

Lovely house in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house 5 minutes walk from the center of the village of Louisburgh and the sea in a quiet area. The bright extension at the back of the house is very welcome on rainy and windy days. The house was equipped with everything we needed.

I guess the only thing that has to be noted is that the internet connection is slow and unreliable which could be a problem if you absolutely need Wifi.

A peaceful sojourn

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week at the cottage! Everything went very well indeed - a pleasant stroll to the friendly village of Luisburgh, a scenic drive into Westport and plenty of gastronomic delights at local restaurants and cafes. The cottage had all that we needed- it was cosy and comfortable, well presented and so easy to live in. We had just had a hectic week in Sweden at a family wedding so this was the perfect recovery sojourn! We looked out for the hares but sadly they were all in hiding. We would all highly recommend this cottage!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at this lovely cottage, had all the amenities of home. Very convenient to town for groceries and ideally situated for day trips along the Wild Atlantic Way. We were fortunate while we were there Blue Grass Festival in nearby Westport and got to enjoy some live music. Would definitely stay there again.
