The property

Ballinrobe 3 miles. A bright and welcoming detached cottage, set just a few minutes’ walk from the shores of Lough Mask and close to the lively market town of Ballinrobe and historic Cong in County Mayo. With contemporary furnishings and a bright atmosphere throughout, this Ballinrobe cottage provides friends and family groups with a welcoming base from which to enjoy all of Mayo and nearby Galway beyond. Across the two floors of this Ballinrobe cottage, guests will find six spacious bedrooms, five of which are complete with luxury en-suite facilities. The sitting room is airy and light, but can be made instantly cosy should you set a flame to the fire. This Ballinrobe cottage also offers a modern kitchen with dining area, a very spacious spot in which to entertain your fellow guests, lighting the woodburner on cool evenings or throwing open the patio doors on sunnier occasions. Step out into the large lawned garden to enjoy a peaceful morning coffee in the charming countryside surroundings, or take a relaxed stroll down to the banks of Lough Mask. The vibrant town of Ballinrobe, set on the River Robe, is just a short drive from this Mayo cottage, offering a fantastic selection of amenities from quirky cafes and bistros to traditional Irish bars. Lough Corrib and Lough Mask provide excellent spots for some of the best fishing in the Emerald Isle, with serene settings for keen anglers. Ballinrobe also hosts a fantastic racecourse plus a championship parkland golf course, so whatever you’re seeking on your Irish break, this County Mayo cottage is sure to delight. The picturesque village of Cong can also be found nearby, renowned as the setting for the classic film, The Quiet Man. The medieval Ashford Castle poses a prominent picture across the county line, and tourists also flock to the beautiful ruin of 13th century Cong Abbey, with its quaint Monks’ Fishing House, a roofless little stone structure resting by the riverside. With these delightful sights awaiting your discovering, plus tranquil cruises across Lough Corrib and wonderful walking and cycling opportunities nearby, this Ballinrobe cottage is an absolute delight.
