The property

This delightful detached cottage is situated just a short walk from the Blue Flag beach at Keel, on Achill Island, one of the key locations along Ireland’s stunning Wild Atlantic Way.

This County Mayo cottage is ideal for families or groups of friends wishing to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life in one of Ireland’s most scenic destinations.

The ground floor comprises a spacious open plan living area complete with a stylish fitted kitchen and two dining areas.

There is also a cosy sitting area which is complemented by a solid fuel stove, perfect for those slightly chilly nights!

Upstairs, two comfortable bedrooms complete the accommodation.

Located in the heart of this seaside village, you can enjoy the convenience of everything on your doorstep, including the magnificent sandy beach, Keel Lake and Achill Golf Club, plus a quaint selection of restaurants and pubs.

The area is rustic, vast and breathtaking with Slievemor Mountain on one side and the crystal blue Atlantic Ocean on the other.

Achill Island is a hot spot for watersports, so why not spend your days swimming, sailing, diving or fishing?

The island is dotted with no less than five Blue Flag beaches, as well as sheltered coves, and is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.

Hire a bike and venture along the Greenway, Ireland’s longest cycling route that stretches from Achill to Westport via a 26 mile, traffic-free trail.

This is a great way to enjoy the fabulous scenery, as well as burning off some calories!

Further afield is Mulranny Bay, the charming town of Westport and Ballycroy National Park.

After a holiday on Achill Island you will return refreshed and rejuvenated!

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.
