This delightful detached cottage is located half a mile from the popular town of Louisburgh, County Mayo. Being within walking distance of the beach, this extremely comfortable cottage will suit a family or group of friends looking to explore this wonderful part of Ireland. Well-equipped and furnished to a good standard, the cottage offers four bedrooms including two doubles on the ground floor, one with en-suite facilities, ensuring everyone has a pleasant place to re-charge the batteries after a busy day of exploring. The sitting room has a warming open fire, an ideal room for relaxing with a good book or watching a movie together. Completing the accommodation, is the kitchen with dining area which has patio doors, which on warm sunny days can be thrown open to allow a cooling breeze in, or why not sit outside on the patio with a refreshing drink? A stroll down to the beach is a must, and you may even be tempted to dip your toes in the glistening Atlantic Ocean. The nearby small town of Louisburgh offers shops and pubs where you can have a drink with the locals, or an easy drive will take you to the lively town of Westport, where the more energetic members of your party can enjoy a climb to the top of Croagh Patrick Mountain.
