The property

This cosy cottage can be found just over five miles from Balla in County Mayo. The cottage is next to the owner’s house on a working farm in the Mayo countryside. Set all on the ground floor, this is a fantastic cottage for people of all ages to get together and discover all the superb County Mayo coast, loughs and countryside. Two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, provide all of the comforts of home. Rustle up some tasty meals and hearty packed lunches in the well-equipped kitchen before you head out for the day, and after a long day spent exploring the local area, warm your toes in front of the open fire and discuss tomorrow’s adventures. Head out to the garden and enjoy the fresh Irish air with a well-earned drink and catch the evening sun. Balla is just five miles away and provides you with a range of restaurants and pubs where you can listen to some live local music. Pull on those walking boots or hop on your bike and check out the different trails on offer around the local area and marvel at the stunning scenery. Nearby are the towns of Claremorris and Ballinrobe where you can enjoy a round of golf or pick up a souvenir at one of the local shops. Take some time to discover Castlebar, Westport, Croagh Patrick Mountain and Achill Island, which are all well worth visiting. A lovely country cottage for your Irish adventure which will live long in the memory.
