    We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children and it was perfect. Less than 10 minutes to Belmullet and great beaches, walks and things to see on the Erris Peninsula.

  • "Loretta and Paddy were very welcoming and extremely hospitable."

    Fresh scones and a cosy fire awaited us on arrival. Beautiful and comfortable house, furnished to a high standard, and offers all the facilities needed for a home away from home (even to cater for two kids!). Really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone I know planning to stay in the area.

The property

Travel to the north west corner of County Mayo to where beautiful Broadhaven Bay cuts a deep channel inland and you will find Barnatra.

It is here, in a tiny hamlet, nestled between mighty Carrowmore Lake and the Atlantic ocean, you will arrive at McGuire's Cottage.

Perched on an elevated site with magnificent sea views, this spacious cottage will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

Boasting 5 double bedrooms, all ensuite, this County Mayo cottage is ideal for families, groups of friends looking for a peaceful break in the great outdoors.

A large fitted kitchen with island and dining area offers the perfect location to enjoy a family meal or choose to dine in the separate dining room leading into the adjoining sunroom, with ocean views.

Retire with a glass of wine to the comfortable sitting room with open fire and plan the next days endeavors.

Outside the cottage, the sea and mountain views are remarkable.

There are many local attractions to savour during your stay.

Travel west to Belmullet town, an oasis in the west and on to Mullet Peninsula with its golf links, wonderful treks and trails and watersports.

Visit Claggan Island, reached by a narrow causeway, with its golden sands.

Motor south through Ballycroy National Park and arrive at beautiful Mulranny.

Here you may join the Greenway, a walking and cycling track that runs from Castlebar town to stunning Achill Island.

A visit to The Ceide Fields at nearby Ballycastle is a must, where neolithic landscapes and a visitor centre highlight the trials and tribulations of past generations.

Travel the dramatic northern coast of County Mayo with wonderful sea cliffs and sea stacks at Downpatrick Head and arrive in the Quaint little town of Killala.

Return to McGuire's cottage in the evenings, kick off the shoes and relax.

This is a wonderful base to explore this stunning part of County Mayo.
