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.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We came to Mayo for our family reunion. We loved coming back to this lovely cottage. The beds were comfy. What an amazing restful place. We arrived to fresh baked cookies, brown bread and butter and milk. We will be back for our next reunion in 5 years. Thanks Sean & Suzi!
A great rural stay option
Our stay was very enjoyable. The hosts were extremely hospitable and generously provided a welcome package of food. They also provided a great deal of helpful information about 'where to go, and what to see' in the area. The accommodation was very comfortable, roomy, scenic, and historic in nature (restored farmhouse).
Perfect little getaway.
Supremely helpful and courtoius. We got a warm welcome, the property was clean, warm and had evertything we needed.
I woulg highly recommend it.
Family stay while traveling
We traveled to Ireland for a visit with relatives in multiple areas. We originally planned to stay 2 nights but due to family commitments only stayed one. The group consisted of my parents (dad is 86) who were both raised in Ireland, my sister, brother in law, husband and myself.. Everything was wonderful , the cookies were delicious, Sean was friendly and offered great suggestions. He and Suzi recommended Flanagan’s for dinner and I loved the service and food. I would definitely stay at Micks place again. Thanks
So very glad you loved the cottage and enjoyed Flanagans. We would love to have had you stay longer so hope you get the chance to revisit the best county in Ireland!
Amazing home away from home
Couldn’t have asked for more the property was welcoming, modern and well appointed. Hosts couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly
Perfect location, beautiful presented
We arrived very tired and Sean made us extremely welcome. The cottage has everything that is required to allow guests to relax and feel at home.
Thrilled that Tigh Mhic was a home from home for you
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.
