Unfortunately, we had an experience where a group of 3 men in a white van came to the property, knocking on the door and acting very strangely. We felt very nervous after that due to their whole demeanour and we did not feel safe to stay in this very remote cottage overnight following that incident. So we stayed in a b & b overnight with use of the property only during the day which really did spoil our holiday and whole trip to Ireland! Reviewed by NicolaApr 2022 "Score 8/10 relates only to location." This very large bungalow is in a quiet area with great views, a short drive to Ballinrobe . It is central to many of the attractions in Counties Mayo and Galway, but up to 60 miles away on good roads. These include, Cong, Lakes Corrib and Mask, Connemara, Clifden, Westport, Achill Island etc. Excellent shopping is available in Castlebar and Galway City. Ballinrobe is good for food shopping in Tesco, Aldi etc. For those who like driving, these places are well worth the journeys. The house itself was amazingly comfortable, even for large parties.

Reviewed by RosemaryAug 2020 "Spacious Family Holiday Home – Ideal for touring Mayo and Galway / The West – Geri was amazing and catered to our every need." Reviewed by MalachyJul 2020 "Gerry was very friendly and helpful." The place was tastefully furnished and it was great to have a fridge that we could actually put things in! I was ready to move in permanently! The location is picturesque and Ballinrobe is a terrific travelling base with great grocery shops at hand. There were a few tiny things that would improve things further - in all the bathrooms - somewhere to hang towels and clothes, toilet paper holders. The bedside light in the master bedroom "hummed" when on and the other side of the bed could have done with a table and light. No curtains didn't bother us, its lovely to wake up in the country mornings (there are blinds).

About the location BALLINROBE, COUNTY MAYO 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.
