There are three cosy and comfortable bedrooms and a tasteful sitting room complete with a roaring open fire, the perfect accompaniment as the day draws to a close.

The kitchen in this Ballycastle cottage is a sociable spot where guests can gather over breakfast to organise day trips, or savour a well-deserved evening glass of wine beside the solid fuel stove, as the chef in the party prepares a culinary delight.

Outside, you can tuck into a picnic on the well-kept lawn, with far-reaching views travelling over the rich green countryside, all the way to the sea.

Enjoy charming country walks, or take a stroll along the bay just half a mile north of this County Mayo cottage, and a little further still, Downpatrick Head is perfect for a windswept wander across the cliffs, with sweeping seascapes stretching over the waves.

Just over half a mile to the south is the small village of Ballycastle, with its handful of shops and cafés set alongside its steep streets, and where you can also uncover the areas rich past at the Ceide Fields Centre.

About the location

BALLYCASTLE, COUNTY MAYO

Killala 8.6 miles; Ballina 16.4 miles.

The quaint village of Ballycastle is located near the beautiful rugged coastline of north Mayo, and is superbly situated just a short distance from Downpatrick Head, one of the main points of interest on the Wild Atlantic Way. The lovely Stags of Broadhaven, 600 million year old rocky islets are located a few miles further west. Ballycastle is a small but thriving village, an easy drive from the lively towns of Ballina, Crossmolina and Killala, where the 12.5km "Monasteries of the Moy" cycling greenway is open to Ballina. The ancestry and heritage of the local area can be experienced at the Ceide Fields Centre, where you can visit the Interpretative Centre set beside one of the world’s oldest Stone Age monuments. The spectacular cliffs at Ceide reach 365 metres and offer sensational, panoramic views, while the wider area also offers an abundance of splendid sandy beaches. The coastal waters around Ballycastle are becoming increasingly popular for scuba diving and other water activities, however if you prefer a more relaxing coastal holiday, the sandy beaches are ideal for a leisurely stroll.
