    “A lovely spot for a holiday”
    Myself and my brother and our little dog stayed here for a week from 21May and had an amazing time. The cottage was clean and welcoming when we arrived. We expected it to be cold but this was not a problem as there were heaters in every room which made to cottage so cosy. The cottage is so close to several of the wonderful beaches on Achill and the deserted village was only a few minutes drive. We came to Achill to do some bird watching so you can imagine our surprise when a Cuckoo sat calling ...

The property

Located at the foot of Slievemore mountain on the ruggedly scenic Achill Island, is this quality detached holiday home.

This Achill Island cottage is a wonderful base from which to explore Ireland's largest, and arguably most naturally beautiful, island.

Situated in a small development of holiday properties, the beach and village of Dugort are within walking distance of this County Mayo cottage, while Keel, Achill's main town with a good selection of pubs and amenities, is just a short drive.

The modern kitchen and dining area at this Achill Island cottage leads onto a bright sitting room which has a warming open fire for chillier evenings.

Three comfortable bedrooms, one en-suite double, one double and one room with bunk beds, offer ideal sleeping accommodation for families, friends or couples.

While the island has many activities to offer, from surfing to hiking, golfing to climbing, visitors to this Achill Island cottage should head back across the bridge to the mainland to spend an evening in the lively town of Westport, famed for its traditional music and warm hospitality.

For a getaway with a difference in one of Ireland's most unspoilt locations, look no further than this Achill Island cottage.

About the location


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.
