    • “Ellie's cottage was one of the highlights of our year. It was so cosy and comfortable and perfectly situated. It has the most magnificent views of Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick to look at while eating your breakfast and a cosy, well-stocked fire in the evening to cuddle up to. We really loved Ellie's cottage and would highly recommend to others.”

    Miss Molloy, Bristol, April 2015

    • “We had a lovely holiday staying in Ellie's Cottage. The owner went out of her way to guide us to the Cottage rather than relying on directions and had left a very welcome gift of bread, cheese and wine for us. Everything was immaculate and ample for our needs, we would have no hesitation in recommending this Cottage.”

    • “We could not praise this property highly enough. The owner was lovely and even went out of her way to meet us in Newport village to show us the way to the cottage. The place is so lovely and clean and so well looked after, we will definitely be going back here. The views from the living room and bedrooms are breath-taking. Absolutely fantastic, a real home from home.”

About the location


Westport 8 miles; Castlebar 13 miles.

The small, picturesque harbour village of Newport lies along the shores of Clew Bay in Mayo, just north of Westport. Clew Bay is famed for its sea angling and water activities for any level of experience. Flowing through the village is the Black Oak River providing excellent fishing opportunities and wonderful walkways along its grassy banks and the Beltra Lake is also regarded as one of the best fresh water fishing lakes in Europe. Newport holds an annual ‘Splash’ festival, a fun filled day of water themed activities for young and old. The village of Newport is home to a charming coffee shop, welcoming pubs and mouth watering eateries, all complemented by the 19th century viaduct on the main street. Walking routes are plentiful and these include the Burrishoole & Mulranny Loops. Further afield you can visit the Ceide Fields near Ballycastle, and the Museum of Country Life.
