The property

This delightful, detached cottage is situated at the foot of Slievemore mountain on the beautiful Achill Island. One of a small development of holiday properties, this attractive Achill Island holiday cottage is the perfect choice for those looking to explore Ireland's largest island and the unspoilt Irish west coast. Set all on the ground floor, this modern, spacious Achill Island cottage offers three lovely bedrooms to sleep in after evenings spent in front of the open fire in the cheerful, cosy sitting room. Dugort offers two stunning Blue Flag beaches along with a bar, restaurant and coffee shop. A little further afield is the town of Keel which offers a good variety of pubs and amenities. If you're a fan of watersports you will be spoilt for choice; you can enjoy windsurfing, sea kayaking, sailboarding or for the less experienced, perhaps try a surfing lesson. Alternatively, walkers and cyclists will be thrilled with numerous walks that are available in the local area and there are plenty more activities to choose from including hiking, golfing and climbing. Mingle with the locals in the lively town of Westport, just over the bridge, and experience some traditional Irish music in one of the many welcoming pubs. With so much to see and do, this Achill Island cottage is one you won't forget.
