    There were nice quiet roads on the doorstep for walking the dogs. It is within easy driving distance of supermarkets and shops for the essentials and Castlebar, Foxford and Westport for outings.

  • "Very comfortable cottage and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    Nothing is perfect but it certainly fulfilled all the criteria listed. It is in a great location and convenient to all places of interest in the area. To hear the sound of the cuckoo was amazing! Would have no hesitation in recommending Glor Cottage as a holiday destination. Our doggie had a brilliant time as there were plenty of safe walks in the vicinity.

  • "We had a lovely time visiting Glor Cottage."

    The house is lovely and comfortable with everything you would need. It’s kept spotless and the beds are so comfortable. It was especially lovely having the garden and sitting outside every evening with the swallows all swooping as the sun went down. We would absolutely recommend to anyone who wants a convenient base to explore the west. It’s also only ten minutes from The airport too.

The area is surrounded by beautiful stretching countryside and is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, walkers and fishermen. There are many towns nearby including Castlebar and Westport with many events and festivals throughout the year.
