About sean and suzi
I moved back to Mayo in 2000 after 10 years of renovating my family home - it took so long because of time and budget constraints. My wife, Suzi, came too and we were joined in December by our daughter, Muirgheal. The family has now grown to include a donkey, 2 alpacas, 4 dogs (2 large, 1 small and 1 medium), 2 shetland ponies, 1 cat, 3 terrapins and a good few fish. Tigh Mhic is less than 3 miles from home which makes it easy to be on hand to help our visitors and for them to come and visit our menagerie.
sean and suzi purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why sean and suzi chose Logboy
In 2003 the renovation bug took hold again. A little quicker this time and Mick's Place is now a fully restored cottage. It is in such a peaceful setting we have taken ourselves off there for our own holidays!
What makes this Cottage unique
Our joys are gentle walks, occasional cycle rides, sitting with a good book and a glass of wine and spotting nature. These interests are definitely well served at Mick's Place. We also love the fact that you look up whenever a car or tractor goes by as traffic is an unusual sight.

Can't wait to return
Cottage is perfect for a lovely peaceful getaway, very quiet neighbourhood, super enclosed space for dog,the cottage is equipped with everything what you would need when going away, very good communication with the owners, we really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this beautiful spot.
Thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Hope to welcome you back in the not too distant future
This is the nicest of the many cottages where I have stayed. It has radiant heat, so it is very comfortable. The decorating is very well done - and the kitchen has anything you might want. We had our Irish friends for a meal, and they were so impressed. It is definitely rural, so it might be a challenge to people who aren't used to a one lane road!
Thank you so much for your kind review...it made our day to read that you had had such a good time staying at Tigh Mhic.
Great weekend away

Wished we stayed longer
We had a great time at this location, it’s quite, clean and well maintained. Sean was really helpful and very pleasant to communicate with.
We would love to return when we retire and stay for a week or two...... or more!!!!
We highly recommend staying here for a relaxing time. Thank you.
So very glad you enjoyed your time in Mayo. We will be delighted to welcome you back to our quiet oasis any time.
Special interest holidays:
Wildlife spotting is very popular at Mick's Place, with baby hares - and their parents - putting in regular appearances.
Mayo has more Blue Flag beaches than any other county in Ireland. Mick’s place is an hour’s drive to both Ross Strand in Killala and Bertra Beach in Westport. A trip to Achill is highly recommended: it’s two hours to Keem Beach, Keel Beach, Dugort Beach, Golden Strand and Dooega Strand. Straying into County Sligo, Inniscrone Beach – an hour away – is well worth a visit, too.
