Ireland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 9 people

The cottage situated at the end of a quiet country road is in a beautiful elevated setting commanding amazing views of Clew Bay., Croagh Patrick, Mweelrea Mts, and the village of Louisburgh, making this a wonderful holiday destination. A holiday home with well co-ordinated colour schemes, bright windows to enjoy the views and a very nice conservatory leading to an enclosed patio adjoining a large lawned garden. The tranquillity of the setting and the everchanging landscape makes this a landscape artists dream. This is a wonderful base from which to enjoy the delights of Connemara, Louisburgh, Westport, and Achill Island, which are designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Shops, restaurants & pubs within 1 mile. Computers with internet access available very reasonably at local library.

fantastische locatie

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben het enorm naar ons zin gehad. De ligging van dit huis is ongelooflijk mooi je hebt aan alle kanten uitzicht. Het huis zelf geeft je meteen het gevoel van thuis. De eigenaar is ook heel aardig. Wij raden het van harte aan.

Veel plezier Morisha

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We decided to visit Co. Mayo for the October half term school holiday and stayed for a week with 2 kids (6 and 4). The house is super, lots of space and extremely clean. The views are amazing and will live long in the memory - mountains, sea or Croagh Patrick, take your pick depending on which room you’re in. The location is ideal for exploring the coast with 6 blue flag/Green Award beaches within 20 minutes drive. The village of Louisburgh is about 15 minutes walk away with a good few pubs to visit. The town of Westport is about half an hour drive away with more to do and see (including a big Tesco to stock up on supplies and a newish leisure centre with pool and cinema).

We flew into Knock and hired a car, transfer time to house not bad at 1.5 hours.

Over the years we've stayed in quite a few rental properties - John's house is probably the best value for money we've found!

An outstanding property in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with 360 degree awesome views. It is located a little outside Louisburgh on the brow of a hill down a little country lane and the views are simply stunning from all angles. There is another property alongside it but at the time we rented there was no-one in the other property so this was a very private site for us. The house is very nicely decorated, comfortable, and has most facilities that you need. It doesn't have a barbecue so you would need to take your own if you are into that. There is a good patch of grass both front and back of the property so plenty of space for children to play.

Louisburgh itself is very small although it does have everything you need such as a small supermarket, a pharmacy, a butcher, a cafe and a petrol station. Westport is about a 25 minute drive away and is a lovely little town. It has a lovely range of shops and supermarkets so you can get everything here if not available in Louisburgh.

A good place to eat is the Tavern at Murrisk - good portions at reasonable prices. We went on a Sunday and it was exceptionally busy which is a good indication of the quality of the food. Excellent menu choice. A recommended drive is to Leenane from Louisburgh as it takes you through breathtaking scenery. If you feel inclined continue to Cliffden and on round the Connemara National Park - you will not be disappointed.

Overall this is a wonderful place. John, the owner, is a charming, welcoming and friendly man, and showed us around on our arrival to explain how everything worked. He is only minutes away if you should need anything. We loved everything about this house and location and are looking forward to going back just as soon as we can.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

having been to ireland many times this was our first time in louisburgh. The house was indeed to a very high standard, lovely and cosy with stunning views over clare island.The high light of the visit was taking the children down to the beach where we spotted seals swimming!. Another trip worthwhile is the killary cruise. What a fab boat ride the landscape was breathtaking i would recommend this to anybody. louisburgh town itself was a lovely little place with a good few restaurants. Westport view hotel had a excellent menu also the owners were very friendly. overall this was a fantastic break away the owner of the house john was very helpful and made us very welcome, so welcome that we are going back next year! hopefully to climb croagh patrick.

Holiday review.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday in Ireland for over twenty years, and we chose to go with several family members. The area was particulaly a choice of my mothers as she comes from close by. We were very pleased with the choice of accomodation, it was large, clean and very comfortable and fabulous views of the countryside (mountains) and of the sea. Outside there is plenty of space to sit out, barbecue etc, or for kids to run and play. The house was approimately 1 mile from the town were you could purchase most things, and visit local pubs, restaurants etc, with the nearest big town about 15 - 20 mins drive (Westport). There is plenty to do and see in the area and I feel that it would suit most people, either those who prefer a relaxing holiday away from it all, sight seers or those who are very much into sport and activity as there is a plentiful variety in the area.( Swimming , surfing , horse riding , fishing , walking , gorge walking , climbing Croagh Patrick etc)

The owner of the property was very helpful and was available if needed, we would reccomend this property to others and would consider returning there ourselves.

Louisburgh is a small town on the southern shore of Clew Bay standing at the mouth of the Bunowen river approx 20 km West of Westport. It is the focal point of a region designated by Mayo Co Council as an Area of Great Natural Beauty. It boasts fine sandy beaches, three of which are Blue Flag beaches, three others are regarded as some of the best in Europe. Scenic drives abound and the journey south to Connemara is particularly beautiful. Louisburgh is a notable district for fishing, surfing, and mountain climbing. Of particular interest is Croagh Patrick which hosts an annual pilgrimage, the view from the summit of Clew Bays 365 islands is breathtaking.

Other Activities: Horse riding ,golf and Delphi Adventure Centre within 20 minute drive.
