The property

A splendid detached cottage, on the truly beautiful and irresistibly picturesque Achill Island, in Dugort, a lovely little village in County Mayo, on the foothills of Slievemore Mountain. With four comfortable bedrooms and breathtaking views of the swirling Atlantic Ocean, this property is perfect for a family and friends in need of peace and quiet amongst spectacular scenery. The open plan living area is expansive and cheery, offering a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area, a great place for a social gathering where good conversion can be had whilst you take in the delightful ocean views, as the designated chef of the party prepares a splendid dinner for everyone. After dinner, why not retire to the comfortable sitting room and throw a log on the roaring open fine, as you watch the flames dance whilst thinking of the day’s adventures and explorations yet to come? For convenience and comfort, there is a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite shower facilities, whilst climbing the stairs will take you to a further three bedrooms, all of which are comfortably-furnished and are sure to provide you with a restful night’s sleep, leaving you energised for the following day’s discoveries. For beach lovers, you couldn’t ask for a better base than Achill, as it has five amazing Blue Flag beaches, with secluded swathes of sand aplenty. For exhilarating windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking, hop in the car and in fifteen minutes you’ll be in the village of Keel. Alternatively, for a more tranquil water-based pursuit, as the Atlantic Ocean surrounds the island, there’s superb fishing to be had in the area. For a haunting day out, pay visit to the deserted village at Slievemore or drink in the magnificent scenery when driving along the Wild Atlantic Way to Westport, a heritage town situated in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, overlooking Clew Bay. For a family adventure on the Emerald Isle, this spacious cottage is the perfect base.
