    “Great house in a fantastic location.”

    Exactly as described. To sit by the fire while looking at the fantastic sea view, even on a cold winters day, what more could you wish for? Walking distance to the beach just across the road. Restaurants and shop a two minute drive or a nice walk if feeling energetic. Perfect kitchen for a self catering break. Fabulous hosts who made us feel very welcome, were very accommodating but not at all intrusive. One would never tire of the amazing view and Achill scenery. We were sad to leave but hope ...

About the location

ACHILL ISLAND, COUNTY MAYO

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.
