  • "We had the best time staying at Tighe Carra."

    The house was amazing the pictures on site don't do it justice. The dinning area is where we spent most of our time and made full use of the well equipped kitchen. The view from the kitchen was breathtaking! Location is secluded but everything you need is a 10minute drive away. Would defo recommend we are already planning our trip here again for next year.

    HI Liam - thank you so much for yur review - we are delighted that you had a good time and so pleased to know that you want to come back again. Kind regards, Ro and Steve Property Owner

  • "Tighe Carra is a spacious and luxurious bungalow with fantastic views."

    We enjoyed our fortnight stay at the cottage greatly.. Everything in the cottage is in fine working order. If you're a foodie this place is the place to go. Anything you can wish for in a professional kitchen is available. The house is a five-star accomodation, not with the anonimity of a hotel but with the subtle reflection of the caring owners. Help was available when needed. We highly recommend this beautiful bungalow

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.
