The property

This delightful, ground floor detached cottage is situated in a rural position two miles from Ballyvary. This is the ideal location for a family or group of friends looking to explore this region of Ireland. The cottage has three comfortable double bedrooms together with a bright and airy open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and small sitting area. The kitchen is well-equipped, perfect for rustling up a tasty meal to enjoy together. Afterwards retire to the larger sitting room, where you can relax together over a coffee or glass of wine, in front of the warming fire, whilst you plan the next day’s adventures. The village of Ballyvary will supply all your basic needs, while a little further afield Swinford, Foxford and Castlebar offer a wider selection of restaurants and pubs where you can mix with the locals and sample some traditional Irish culture. A little further afield is the pretty village of Westport which is steeped in history and surrounded by lovely scenery; wander around the individual shops and maybe select a gift or two to take home. Lough Mask and the River Moy both offer fishing and there are a choice of golf courses nearby for those who wish to practise their swing. This is a wonderful part of Ireland with plenty of things to do and see, before returning to re-charge your batteries at this lovely cottage.
