  • "Lovely comfy little cottage in a quiet spot on a farm at the end of the track."

    The owners were very friendly, cheerful and helpful. The cottage is handy for Cong, Westport, Galway and Castebar amongst many other places of interest.

  • "Reasonably priced, Cavan Hill Cottage is roomy, clean and comfortable."

    The house is plentifully supplied, (decent pots/pans, cutlery/crockery, white goods and more) for a comfy stay. Peaceful, (typically Irish) location only 2 miles from Balinrobe with all the shops/supermarkets you need, and nicely situated for your day trips etc. The owners are friendly and helpful and I fully intend to stay here again.

  • "Instructions for reaching the property need to be clearer."

    For example, to know that Convent Road start in the middle of town and heads South past the schools would be helpful.

  • "It is very strange that there was no one who received you and who gave some explanation."

    In fact, we did not speak to anyone during the whole week.

  • "This is a great base for travelling to Cong, Ashford Castle, Westport and Galway all within 40 minutes drive or less."

    Great lakes, lough and rivers which my husband enjoyed kayaking along. The trout and salmon were jumping out of the water. We went to Achill Island and my husband ran the 26.2 mile greenway between Westport and Achill sound. My elderly mum came with us and because the cottage is all on one floor she was able to get around great. We loved the multistove fuel fire and the wonderful smell of the turf.

About the location


Westport 20 miles; Galway 30 miles.

Ballinrobe is a lively market town on the River Robe in County Mayo, close to Lough Mask, Lough Carra and Lough Corrib. Geographically, it is ideally located as a touring base for those wishing to explore Galway, Mayo and west Ireland. Dating back to the 1300s, Ballinrobe is believed to be the oldest town in South Mayo, and is surrounded by many features of archaeological, architectural, historic and ecological interest. Ballinrobe is known as the lake angling centre of the west, and with 60,000 acres of lough fishing, and miles of river fishing close by, it is easy to see why, plus the town offers a championship 18 hole golf course and spring and summer horse racing meetings. For day trips, the stunning Mayo coastline can be easily reached in half an hour, and a visit to the world-famous Connemara National Park, with its breathtaking walks and amazing scenery, makes for an unforgettable day trip.
