    A fire was set and the scones and brown bread where a lovely gesture. I would recommend the cottage to my family and friends.

  • "The hosts were very welcoming."

    They had the fire lit and had home baked scones and brown bread waiting for us on arrival. It was a very peaceful and cosy house.

    The owners were kind and gave a warm welcome. It was very close to all local attractions/amenities and was so peaceful. An ideal property and location for a restful break . Very highly recommended.

  • "First of all, the correspondence we had with the Sykes staff was exceptional; all of the representatives got back to us very quickly and answered all of our questions and set things up very well."

    The Cottage owners were so kind to come to a nearby hotel to lead us to the cottage which was hidden away a bit. They were so delightful, leaving us treats and a fireplace stocked with peat. The Cottage is so welcoming! My sister and I travel often together and this is by far one of the best places we've ever stayed, in any country. Completely quiet and secluded, fields full of livestock, blackberries to pick, and many, many miles of greenway biking trails and hiking trails right out the front door, some of which lead well up into the hills where the views over the water and islands are stunning in the changing light. Achill Island just 25 min away. We used the cottage as a base to explore Mayo and northern Connemara. The Jordans made themselves available for any questions and problems we might have had--but didn't. We were at such peace that we never turned on the radio or listened to the terrible news all around the world, and so could really and fully recharge from work stresses as we searched for the resident hares and pheasants in the fields. We cooked most of our meals and easily popped over to Newport 3 mi away to check emails and get supplies. The butcher shops in Newport have really excellent meats, and the grocery store has pretty much anything else you might need. Several choices of meals at the Newport pubs and restaurants and hotels, too. River's Edge Cafe a few miles away also has excellent food. Wonderful music and food in nearby Mulranny as well. No end of things to do and see! We can't recommend this place and the experience more highly--just wonderful.

  • "Für Wanderungen oder Radtouren direkt vom Haus sehr zu empfehlen."

    Oder auch, wenn man seine Ruhe haben möchte. Ein kleiner Tisch im Wohnbereich wäre noch schön.

  • "Mr and Mrs Jordan were very welcoming and helpful, and Mrs Jordan's home made scones and bread were delicious."

    The cottage has a lovely view, and was dry and warm, and thoughtfully equiped. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week.

A dainty, detached railway cottage located on the outskirts of Newport, a charming harbour town on the shores of Clew Bay in County Mayo.

Traditionally decorated throughout, this Newport cottage has all the characteristics of an Irish cottage, with the small doors still remaining.

This Newport cottage boasts two snug bedrooms, a well-equipped, fitted kitchen with dining area and an inviting sitting room, the perfect place to lounge by the fire and enjoy each other's company.

About the location


Westport 8 miles; Castlebar 13 miles.

The small, picturesque harbour town of Newport lies along the shores of Clew Bay in Mayo, just north of Westport. Clew Bay is famed for its sea angling and water activities for any level of experience. Flowing through the town is the Black Oak River providing excellent fishing opportunities and wonderful walkways along its grassy banks and the Beltra Lake is also regarded as one of the best fresh water fishing lakes in Europe. Newport holds an annual ‘Splash’ festival, a fun filled day of water themed activities for young and old. The town of Newport is home to a charming coffee shop, welcoming pubs and mouth watering eateries, all complemented by the 19th century viaduct on the main street. Walking routes are plentiful and these include the Burrishoole & Mulranny Loops. Further afield you can visit the Ceide Fields near Ballycastle, and the Museum of Country Life.
