A superb detached house situated 100 metres from a lovely blue flag beach in Dugort with sea views and a short walk to the sea edge.

This charming house is perfect for family and friends to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, surrounded by breathtaking scenery situated by the sultry mount Slievemore.

Tastefully furnished with both comfort and convenience in mind, the house has four lovely bedrooms spread over two floors.

Downstairs you will find a well-equipped open plan living area with a kitchen, perfect for whipping up a tasty breakfast to prepare you for a day of exploring, a dining area with enough room to seat six for a celebratory meal and a sitting area with a warming open fire, ideal for curling up with a good book and a mug of hot cocoa in the chillier months.

Stroll down to the beach and soak up the summer sun or relax with a refreshing drink of something cool safe in the knowledge that home is just a short walk away.

Indeed, with plenty of spectacular scenery on the island you will certainly not be disappointed if you decide to pull on your walking boots or hop on your bike and go adventuring.

Less than fifteen minutes’ drive away is the village of Keel which is a paradise for those who enjoy watersports such as sea kayaking, windsurfing and sailboarding.

If you’ve never tried surfing, why not book yourself a lesson and experience the exhilarating feeling of riding the Atlantic waves?

Alternatively, for a more leisurely pursuit there’s plenty of tranquil fishing sports further inland and a fine selection of pubs and cafes in which to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.

For a true adventure, experience the stunning scenery as you drive to the mainland and visit the bustling town of Westport.

Walk down the streets of this town steeped in culture and be tempted into one of the fantastic pubs by the traditional Irish music being played within.

A great house in a beautiful location, ideal for an Irish adventure you’ll never forget.

About the location

ACHILL ISLAND, COUNTY MAYO

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.
