    “Quiet Hideaway Close to Beach.”
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean and well-appointed cottage. It was comfortably furnished with everything we needed for cooking meals and relaxing. We loved having a beach five minutes' walk away, and the owner and neighbours around the cottage were all very friendly and helpful. We chose this cottage because we were able to bring our dog, and hope that it continues to accept pets as in our case this is an essential.

About the location


Westport 33 miles.

At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but watersports are always easy to find. Try surfing, windsurfing, canoeing or kayaking on one of the beautiful beaches, enjoy a horse ride along the coast, or simply take a stroll through the sand. With its beautiful mountainous landscape, Achill Island provides great walking, and the Atlantic Drive, 40km of coastal scenery, is perfect for cars and bicycles alike. Visit the Deserted Village at Slievemore, or the Tower at Kildavnet and discover some of Achill Island's history, or just over 30 miles away lies the town of Westport, on the mainland, ideal for a day out. A lovely island, with endless possibilities.
