The property

A charming bungalow on the outskirts of Ballyvary, a small village set in County Mayo countryside with easy access to Castlebar, Foxford and Swinford.

Just a short drive from Knock Airport, this cottage will provide a cosy base for you and your loved ones to start exploring the west of Ireland.

There are three comfortable double bedrooms for you to choose from with a well-equipped, compact kitchen to the back of the property, where you can prepare a hearty breakfast and pack a few lunches ahead of an action packed day filled with adventure.

When you get back in again, sit around the dining table and discuss the highlights of the day over a home-cooked meal or takeaway and warm your toes in front of the oil-fired stove, or make your way into the sitting room and curl up on the sofa in front of the open fire and just take it easy.

When the sun is out why not take a seat in the garden and enjoy the fresh Irish air with a glass of wine?

Ballyvary will tend to your basic needs, while Foxford, Swinford and Castlebar are all close by, each home to a range of great pubs with traditional Irish music and restaurants for you to visit should you wish to take the night off from cooking.

Head a bit further to the fantastic towns of Ballina or Westport, home to stunning scenery, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and a golf course.

Take a trip to visit the Céide Fields and experience farming life, enjoy the stunning scenery with a walk or bike ride along The Greenway, or take the car for a drive along the Wild Atlantic Way.

Set yourself a challenge and conquer Croagh Patrick Mountain, and why not head on a bit more and visit Achill Island?

This is a lovely property that the whole family will enjoy using as a base for your Irish getaway.
