A delightful detached cottage, blissfully situated on the shores of Lough Conn.

Tastefully furnished throughout, a warm welcome awaits you at this attractive holiday home which offers bright and spacious living space, with plenty of room for a family or group of friends looking to get together in an area rich in hospitality, heritage and culture.

All ground floor, there are three comfortable bedrooms to choose from.

Together with a wet room, this cottage offers a variety of accommodation to suit everyone.

With a well-equipped kitchen and dining area to seat all your party, this is an ideal place to get together to discuss your favourite part of the day and to plan exciting times to come.

There is also a warm and homely sitting area to head to – with a toasty open fire on the go, what better way to unwind after your fun-filled days of adventures and explorations!

Head outside and take a seat to marvel at the stunning scenery on view from this wonderful location.

What better place could you find to sit and watch the sun setting, drink in hand, as the last rays of the sun glimpse the lapping waters of the lough?

Set between the towns of Ballina and Crossmolina, you will find a variety of pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes.

Head to Ballina where the ruins of Moyne Abbey, and Rosserk Friary dating back to the 15th century and the impressive St Muredach's Cathedral stands imposingly on the banks of the River Moy.

The River Moy is internationally acknowledged as an exceptional salmon fishery.

The famous Ridge Pool, the salmon anglers’ paradise, is located in the heart of the town.

Take a drive to the sandy beach at Enniscrone, or slightly further afield are Achill Island and Westport – wonderful areas to explore.

All in all, you would find it hard to discover a more perfect base from which to explore the wonderfully unspoilt, undiscovered gems of the County Mayo region.
