Complete with a bright and cheerful décor with hints of a seaside theme, this Louisburgh cottage is sure to captivate friends and family groups looking to uncover this richly romantic area of Ireland.

The cosy and welcoming atmosphere extends throughout the property, with each of the three bedrooms comfortable and thoughtfully-decorated, providing a peaceful place to rest at the end of a busy day.

The spacious open plan living area offers a character gas stove and quirky touches, which help to make this County Mayo cottage a true home-from-home.

Outside this lovely Louisburgh cottage, there is a front lawned area and two convenient off road parking spaces, whilst within five minutes’ walk is the impressive coastline, where you will find the undisturbed Blue Flag beach of Old Head offering spectacular sights that stretch for miles across the bay.

The small town of Louisburgh brims with character and sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, hemmed by three pristine Blue Flag beaches, whilst the town centre provides plenty of amenities.

Take a scenic drive to capture the stunning sights, conquer Croagh Patrick, which is on the doorstep, or spend a peaceful afternoon fishing on the idyllic Bunowen River, an angler’s paradise with plenty of salmon and sea trout.
