  • “The booking process through yourselves was hindered by th Covid 19 pandemic and we lost our 1st deposit of £130 for the initial booking as it was for May 2020 and travel was not advised but borders were not closed to visitors.”

    We made another booking which through yourselves and the owner we finally arranged for September 2021. Having waited over 16months from the initial booking date we duly arrived at what on paper sounded like our idea of an ideal holiday home. ...

    We made another booking which through yourselves and the owner we finally arranged for September 2021. Having waited over 16months from the initial booking date we duly arrived at what on paper sounded like our idea of an ideal holiday home. However what we arrived at was far from that. The property smelt musty having only been unoccupied for 1 week. The ashes from an old fire were still in the grate and the fireguard was caked with dust. The hob was covered in grease and grime and 1 cupboard door had remnants of a gravy spillage running down it. The Grill pan for use in the oven was missing from the property. The fridge had no icebox in the top and no facilities to store frozen food or ice for drinks was available in the property. The shower in the downstairs en-suite has a permenant drip. The shower in the upstairs en-suite has a broken connection with the shower hose/showerhead making it unsuable. The leather covering on the sofa and a leather chair in the lounge are split through age in various places. An electric socket in the lounge id damaged and should be replaced as a matter of urgency. We contacted the owner who gave us a refund of 60 euros on the rental. I will not be returning to the property unless the ownwer spend a considerable amount of money refurbishing the property from top to bottom. It begs the question "do you as a company check the properties you act for, or just take the owners word as gospel. This cottage is in such a beautiful location but lets itself down.

The property

A superb detached house situated 100 metres from a lovely blue flag beach in Dugort with sea views and a short walk to the sea edge.

This charming house is perfect for family and friends to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, surrounded by breathtaking scenery situated by the sultry mount Slievemore.

Tastefully furnished with both comfort and convenience in mind, the house has four lovely bedrooms spread over two floors.

Downstairs you will find a well-equipped open plan living area with a kitchen, perfect for whipping up a tasty breakfast to prepare you for a day of exploring, a dining area with enough room to seat six for a celebratory meal and a sitting area with a warming open fire, ideal for curling up with a good book and a mug of hot cocoa in the chillier months.

Stroll down to the beach and soak up the summer sun or relax with a refreshing drink of something cool safe in the knowledge that home is just a short walk away.

Indeed, with plenty of spectacular scenery on the island you will certainly not be disappointed if you decide to pull on your walking boots or hop on your bike and go adventuring.

Less than fifteen minutes’ drive away is the village of Keel which is a paradise for those who enjoy watersports such as sea kayaking, windsurfing and sailboarding.

If you’ve never tried surfing, why not book yourself a lesson and experience the exhilarating feeling of riding the Atlantic waves?

Alternatively, for a more leisurely pursuit there’s plenty of tranquil fishing sports further inland and a fine selection of pubs and cafes in which to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.

For a true adventure, experience the stunning scenery as you drive to the mainland and visit the bustling town of Westport.

Walk down the streets of this town steeped in culture and be tempted into one of the fantastic pubs by the traditional Irish music being played within.

A great house in a beautiful location, ideal for an Irish adventure you’ll never forget.

About the location


Westport 33 miles.

At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but watersports are always easy to find. Try surfing, windsurfing, canoeing or kayaking on one of the beautiful beaches, enjoy a horse ride along the coast, or simply take a stroll through the sand. With its beautiful mountainous landscape, Achill Island provides great walking, and the Atlantic Drive, 40km of coastal scenery, is perfect for cars and bicycles alike. Visit the Deserted Village at Slievemore, or the Tower at Kildavnet and discover some of Achill Island's history, or just over 30 miles away lies the town of Westport, on the mainland, ideal for a day out. A lovely island, with endless possibilities.
