    The photo shows the beauty of the building and its peaceful rural location. Inside is immaculate and spotlessly clean and well worth a visit. But... why isn't this cottage finished off? Please... - put curtains at the windows - it makes the place warm and cosy and stops the constant echo of an empty room - put in a decent TV instead of that old monstrosity - put towel rails/hooks in the bathrooms for towels - where do I put damp towels - you really need bed side tables - you need bed side lamps on the tables - put a warm rug by the side of the bed - get rid of the laminated sheets saying do this/don't do that - it looks awful - create a visitor book! - there are no 'home comforts' - no pictures/paintings/posters etc on the wall - remove photos of the owners kids - really not necessary - finish off the floor - where one floor meets another there is gap eg. under doors - put an aluminium strip over the gap - they cost a few euro - why is the fireplace covered over with a sheet of painted plasterboard - open it up This could be a beautiful place with just a few pounds spending on it and it deserves a bit of love and attention.

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.

Note: No stag/hen or similar.
