The property

This delightful cottage is in a fantastic setting in the village of Corraun, just over seven miles from Achill Island in County Mayo. As you step inside you will see this detached cottage is well-equipped and enjoys lovely views across the countryside to the coast beyond. The accommodation provides a fantastic base for families and friends who are looking to discover this picturesque part of the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland. There are six bedrooms set across the first floor which are four doubles, two of which have an en-suite, and two twin rooms. Everybody is sure to get a good night’s rest in one of these comfortable rooms. Downstairs is a spacious kitchen with a breakfast bar where you can enjoy a hearty breakfast before heading out to spend the day exploring the area. There is also a dining room for a more formal meal. There are three cosy sitting rooms to choose from, one with a solid fuel stove and the other two with an electric fire, which provide a lovely spot to curl up and relax at the end of the day while you discuss future plans. With such beautiful surrounding scenery you will find yourselves taking you morning cup of tea outside so you can take it all in and enjoy the peace and quiet. Nearby you can challenge yourselves and head up Curraun Hill from where you can get a stunning view of your surroundings. Head out to the coast, or walk or cycle the Great Western Greenway which lies between Achill and Westport and forms the longest trail in Ireland. To the west is Achill Island, a fantastic retreat from busy life where you can get lost in the wilderness, while to the east you can roam the towns of Mulranny, Newport and Westport.
