The property

This is a lovely detached cottage, five miles from the village of Knock in County Mayo. The cottage makes an excellent base for your Irish adventure as it is less than 20 minutes from Knock International Airport, allowing a group of friends or family to start their holiday straight away. The accommodation is set all on the ground floor, with three comfortable bedrooms and a bathroom. There is also a well-equipped kitchen where you can enjoy delicious home-cooked meals and prepare picnics for your next day out. When you get home after a day spent exploring and sightseeing, take your boots off and sit back and relax in the sitting room in front of the warming stove. You could also sit out in the garden and enjoy the sunshine with a well-earned drink, and watch your worries drift away on the breeze. Knock itself is only a short drive away, and you can take a night off from cooking and visit the range of restaurants and pubs. While here, visiting the world-renowned shrine is a must, and why not hop on your bike and go for a ride to enjoy the countryside views? Under an hour away are both Castlebar and the lively harbour town of Westport. Slightly further afield, you can hike up Croagh Patrick mountain if you’re feeling adventurous, or relax and drive along the popular Wild Atlantic Way where you can take in stunning views. This is a delightful cottage, in an ideal location for you to start your holiday as soon as you arrive.
