    “Just wonderful wonderful special thanks to Jim who was always available for advice and recommendations of where to find a good pub.”

    Also to his wife for the lovely homemade scones and other goodies that were really appreciated after our long drive and oh also to the chickens for the fresh egg!

The property

Shrule 3.5 miles.

A welcoming detached cottage situated in a quiet setting, next to a working livestock farm close to the village of Shrule, County Mayo.

This lovely Shrule cottage charms and enchants from the moment you walk through the door, with a homely and inviting atmosphere throughout.

Set entirely on the ground floor, the three cosy bedrooms of this cottage near Shrule are complemented by an open plan living area that benefits from a roaring multi-fuel stove, the perfect accompaniment after a long day exploring the sights of Ireland’s glorious west.

Outside, soak up the peace and tranquillity from the patio area at this Mayo cottage, maybe with a glass of your favourite tipple or a good book.

This Shrule cottage is superbly located for discovering so many different attractions of the Emerald Isle.

A short drive will bring you to the cosmopolitan city of Galway.

The cobbled streets are home to a lively bar and restaurant scene with traditional Irish music and many cultural events with a wide range of annual festivals.

This Mayo holiday home sits close to the Connemara National Park with many walking and cycling routes amongst the spectacular soaring peaks and sweeping valleys, and fishermen are spoilt for choice with Lough Corrib and Lough Mask nearby, with boat hire readily available.

Cong is also within easy reach, a popular village known as the Gateway to Connemara.

Head north for Westport, a fantastic town overlooked by the imposing Croagh Patrick Mountain that affords breathtaking views across the islands of Clew Bay.

The towns of Oughterard, Castlebar and Clifden are also within easy reach, as is the wonderful coastline of North County Clare, featuring the mystical Burren National Park.

A memorable Irish self-catering holiday cottage with so much to see and do in the area.
