  • "Bonjour, j'ai déjà envoyé mes commentaires sur air b&b sans réponse."

    La maison est bien mais il manque quelques informations. Nous n'avons été accueilli par personne. Il n'y a pas de livret explicatif de la maison. Nous avons posé des questions par mail sur air b&b pour l'eau chaude et comment activer le lave-vaisselle. Aucune réponse. Les draps et les serviettes ne sont pas toutes neuves. Le ménage est moyen par endroit : hôte de la cuisine, sous les lits. Améliorer l'accueil des voyageurs, au moins pas un livret explicatif...

  • "In terms of location, this is well located."

    You can walk down to the Lough, we swam most mornings. The views and setting are lovely, green and peaceful. They nearest town, Ballinrobe, is around 10 mins away and you have everything you need to cope there. The directions given prior to arrival were incorrect and took us to a different property around 300m short of where we needed to go. This did cause some anxiety at 9 in the evening after a long drive. In terms of facilities, you have everything you need. It doesn't help that the cooker had no legible numbers on it. The internet is limited, forgeting the network on your phone and reconnecting helps with that. There are things like a washing machine, airers and a washing line. There was no guide for the hot water, we had to work it out for ourselves. In terms of comfort, the furniture was ancient and impractical. The sofas in the living room weren't very comfortable to sit on so we didn't spend much time in there. The curtains didn't seem to match in any room, meaning the place didn't feel very relaxing/homely to stay in. Overall, I would suggest staying here after the property has had a healthy amount of work. It was well situated to enjoy our time around counties Galway and Mayo. So much great stuff to explore and enjoy around there. Otherwise, we spent good money on hiring this property, it did not represent value for money.

  • "We arrived after 5pm and found 4 people "cleaning" in the cottage."

    We then just put our luggage in a corner and drove to the supermarket. When we came back after 1 hour there was no one left and the cottage was still dirty. Used dishes, crumbs, leftover food in the dishwasher, mold stains in the kitchen drawers, hair in the showers, cobwebs and layers of dust everywhere. The stove is black with old grease and sticks everywhere. This is by far the dirtiest house I've ever vacationed in. No information folder, the wifi was only activated on request and is limited to 20GB. The oil tank in the chamber stinks extremely and you are afraid that the house will be blown up at any moment. Not only, but especially in times of a pandemic, hygiene is essential The indifference with which this house is looked after is shocking. It's incredibly disgusting and I don't recommend anyone planning a vacation here.

The property

Ballinrobe 3.6 miles.

Settled near the shores of Lough Mask is this delightful detached cottage, Lough Mask Road Fishing Cottage, offering up to nine guests a homely dwelling from which to explore the wonders of County Mayo.

Ideal for a group of friends or a family seeking outdoor adventures, you can enjoy fishing in the lake, country walks, and day trips to the bustling towns nearby, returning each day to the comfort of Lough Mask Road Fishing Cottage.

Enjoy the delightful exterior of the property which features vibrant orange painted window frames and front door, before stepping into your Irish retreat.

Head down to the kitchen/diner where you can prepare a snack after your journey, with many nights sure to be spent here around the dining table amongst your loved ones, while delicious evening meals can be made with the great range of appliances, along with a homely woodburning stove to warm you on cooler nights.

Find the utility room next to the kitchen, with a fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine in here, while the other direction brings you to the sitting room; relax in here after a busy day, on the sofa or armchairs, with a woodburning stove in here too, you can carry both the warmth and conversation in, or wind down by watching the TV with Freeview.

Two of the four bedrooms lie on the ground floor, allowing those with less mobility to enjoy a more accessible sleeping spot, both containing double beds with lovely decor, with one boasting an en-suite shower room, and the other served by the ground-floor family bathroom.

Follow the timber staircase up to the first floor to find a spacious family bedroom, complete with a double bed and a single bed, ideal for a family within the group, and a twin room too, served by the neat shower room.

Enjoy time outside in the large garden, with a patio and furniture for some alfresco dining, and plenty of lawn space to play on, your canine companions and little ones will be thrilled.

The cottage lies just a short distance away from the town of Ballinrobe where you can find all you need for your stay, including some shops for food and essentials, and local pubs to enjoy in the evening.

Those with a keen interest in fishing will want to head straight to Lough Mask, with this vast lake taking up 22,000 acres in area and known for being one of the best trout fisheries in all of Ireland, you can often catch trout weighing around 10-pounds, all whilst enjoying the stunning scenery of the waters.

Walkers can instead choose to negotiate the shores of the lake, or explore one of three walking routes found in County Mayo; The Western Way, The Foxford Way and The Bangor Trail.

Venture up to the town of Westport for a fun-filled day, whether it's trying out a new watersport on the Atlantic coast like paddle-boarding, kayaking or surfing, or taking a Westport Walking Tour, sampling the excellent eateries here or indulging in some shopping in the colourful shop fronts of the town, you're sure to find something for everyone.

Discover one of Ireland's most engaging cities further south of the cottage, Galway, where you can look forward to exploring Galway Market, Galway City Museum, the Spanish Arch and much more, along with all the lively and welcoming Irish pubs and bars here to enjoy too.

For a scenic break with excitement too, stay at Lough Mask Road Fishing Cottage in County Mayo.
