  • "Mostly very good."

    Do not take the following as comments which negate the overall experience. We were very pleased with our stay. But the owners/operators could think about. Central heating could do with attention. Water supply temperature to radiators is too low for a winter stay. Somebody may have tried to do something about this, because the water temperature to the hot water service to taps is ridiculously high. A waste of energy and so hot as to be unsafe for children or the confused or disabled. The hot water tank is unlagged.........which is a serious waste of money on heating oil. An insulting blanket for the cylinder would cost little. Or, failing that, wrap an old coat around it. We wrapped it in our coats during our stay. A previous review criticized the kitchen ware as not being a matched set......well, it is not .....but that matters not a jot. It is a comfortable, nicely refurbished cottage, with a sitting and dinning place place by a window with magical views. Plenty of well-surfaced parking area, including parking at the rear cottage out of sight from the public road.

  • "The very old fashioned 3 channel tv was very bad for us."

    If you’ve got Wi-Fi, which you have, invest in a smart tv. Water pressure in showers was really poor. The directions to find you were terrible and gave a bad first impression but not as bad as your Wi-Fi not working when we arrived. We appreciate you got it sorted pretty quick. The problems raised in the terrible review in May have mostly been resolved. Personally I’m not a fan of assorted crockery as it looks scruffy and very mean of you. We loved the teabags/ coffee/ washing powder/ shampoo/ salt n pepper/ oil/ soap/ bedding/ towels/ milk etc… so many assorted items to get us started.

  • "Nephin View is in a excellent location, with fantastic views, and access to local shop, pubs and beaches."

    We had a very comfortable week there, using the house as a base for local walks as well as journeys further afield to the Mullet Peninsula, Achill and Ballycroy. Overall the house is well resourced, with good beds, towels, bathrooms and washing facilities. The kitchen works well, though the house would benefit from some additional crockery, implements and general kitchen kit. There is ample parking, good outside space, and all in all I would recommend Nephin View for a holiday with wonderful scenery and relaxed atmosphere.

  • "Well we arrived in Nephin View on 26th a beautiful sunny afternoon & the house is in a lovely spot however I have to say we were a bit disappointed with the house."

    It looks like it has been recently painted but unfortunately the Hob left a lot to be desired. Needed a good clean. We couldn't even find the switch to turn it on & there wasn't any Instruction Book around on any of the appliances apart from the Dishwasher.. Kettle was even a bit greasy on the outside.The Fridge appeared to be Defrosting leaving water gathering on the bottom shelf .. The doors of the Fridge weren't even attached to the outside door. We couldn't open/close some of the windows as the handles were broke. One of the Wardrobes had a Screw sticking out on the inside which would tear your clothes if you didn't know it was there. There was no hooks on the back of the doors so nowhere to hang a dressing gown or a jacket. One of the wet rooms didn't even have a towel rail & there was no bulbs in the lights over the mirror in the Ensuite..However both Wet rooms had Grab Bars which was a great addition.. This was a three bedroom house which could mean up to six people staying. The Dining Table only had four Chairs with some small Rattan Chairs if you needed extra. We then decided to go outside to sit in the sun & have a coffee & when the other person on the holiday sat in the garden chair the seat collapsed leaving her practically sitting on the ground. Luckily she didn't break anything apart from hurting her shoulder a bit. It would have been worse if it was me as I'm currently waiting on a Hip & Knee Replacement. Not the start you want to your holiday. I then rang the Contact Number listed & spoke to what seemed like a very confused man only to find out He was in Australia on holidays so God only knows how much that call cost me. He wasnt really very helpful nor did he even ask how the Lady was after the fall. He gave no other Contact Number leaving us at a loss as to who we should ring if the was a serious problem & I certainly wasn't going to ring Australia again. I tried another number that was pined up on a door in the hall & that wasn't much help either. The Lady has nothing to do with the house but she would try & help if she could. . A New Contact Number should have been left when the Owner & his Wife knew they were going to Australia. There was no Information Pack in the house about the surrounding area. No Information regarding the Local supermarkets/Restaurants around. No Telephone number for the Emergency Services The Police or even the Local Hospital or G.P. There was no Information regarding Rubbish & no Rubbish Bins outside the house so we didn't know where to leave our Rubbish when leaving. There wasn't even any Information on the Central Heating or if it was set to come on at certain times & no Information where to leave the used Towels. So with no Information supplied you just used your own judgement This. Property could be a little gem if it was managed properly & all of the above problems were sorted but for our visit the property certainly wasn't ready to be rented & not having a local Contact Number is a very big problem. We are very disappointed & annoyed especially having paid £625 (€720). We have booked through Sykes before & this is the first time we really had any issues with a property. I just wonder if anyone vetted it before it became listed ? This sort of thing certainly won't do Sykes Reputation any good. Have taken photos of above complaints if requested

The property

Resting in Doohoma, a short drive from the coastal town of Belmullet, County Mayo, is Nephin View, a delightful, single-storey home.

Offering a prime position looking out upon the Atlantic Ocean, Nephin View offers a homely base for a family break, including all the essentials for a self-catered stay.

Park up on the private driveway whilst taking in the panoramic vistas surrounding your new abode.

Step indoors to reach the inviting sitting room, complete with plush seating and a woodburning stove to light on cooler days.

Continue into the open-plan living space, the heart of the home, where you can prepare delicious meals, dine as a six, and unwind upon the sumptuous corner sofa with the Atlantic Ocean in the backdrop.

When sleep calls, select between three spacious double bedrooms, one of which benefits from a private en-suite wet room; the home is completed with a further wet room, also housing a washing machine for a convenient break.

Spend the morning in the garden, before heading to Belmullet, a coastal oasis that covers a huge, rural hinterland, and home to the Carne Golf Links for those looking to improve their short game, and the Béal an Mhuirthead Tidal Pool for those who fancy a relaxing dip with tranquil sea views.

The Mullet Peninsula offers a lovely coastal drive to Blacksod Pier where boat trips are available to Inishkea Islands.

Whilst you're there, take a tour of Blacksod Lighthouse or partake in some sea angling or another watersport.

Make the car journey to nearby Ballina, a bustling settlement where you'll locate a hub of shops and eateries, whilst the Belleek Wood/Park, imposing Belleek Castle and Museum, and the Ballina Golf Club rest nearby, offering something for all types of visits.

Head for the coast, where you can try your hand at a variety of watersports, including kite surfing and scuba diving, along with scenic walks along the Wild Atlantic Way such as the Erris Head and Cross loops.

Achill Island just across the bay, a short journey by boat or approximately 1 hour by car, or for a nature-filled hiking area, be sure to tour Céide Fields, an expansive archaeological site, oozing history, and beauty.

Your trip to County Mayo would be incomplete without a visit to the Nephin National Park, which covers over fifteen-thousand hectares of uninhabited, unspoilt wilderness, and is overlooked by the magnificent Nephin Beg Mountain range.

Gather your loved ones for an unforgettable getaway to Nephin View.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €350.

About the location


Bangor Erris 12 miles.

Known as the capital of the Mullet Peninsula in the barony of Erris, the coastal town of Belmullet rests between Blacksod and Broadhaven Bays, inlets of the Atlantic Ocean, and represents the entry point to this mystical and unspoilt County Mayo headland. Although classed as a Gaeltacht (or Irish-speaking) area, English is universally used. Much of the native culture and heritage of Ireland can be experienced here, from traditional Irish music to the song and dance for which Ireland is renowned the world over. Many visitors to the area enjoy the fantastic fishing on offer, both salt and fresh water, while watersports are also popular with surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing available from the beaches locally. Welcoming and friendly, the town boasts a number of pubs, four hotels, shops and seafood restaurants, as well as a selection of festivals throughout the year. At the four corners of Erris you will find the Neolithic Cèide Fields, the unspoilt wilderness of Ballycroy National Park, the towering cliffs of Ceann Iorrais (Erris Head) and the final resting place of the fabled Children of Lir, the island of Inis Gluaire.
