The property

Achill Sound 1.8 miles. This homely, detached cottage sits in a stunning coastal location, within easy reach of the village of Achill Sound on Achill Island, in County Mayo. Positioned at the end of a country lane, this charming Achill Island cottage enjoys peace and quiet, and has been thoughtfully appointed with a traditional style to offer couples and small families a cosy, romantic base whilst enjoying a holiday in this beautiful area of Ireland. The accommodation at this Achill Island cottage sits entirely across the ground floor, with one internal step between the kitchen and hall, offering two bedrooms, a kitchen with a dining area and a comfortable sitting room benefiting from the warmth of a lovely multi-fuel stove. Wonderful views across the sea can be enjoyed from the garden, so you can have an alfresco meal before wandering down to the shore. Achill Sound sits on Achill Island, enclosed by sweeping countryside and offering a stunning, unspoilt horseshoe bay, complete with a beautiful Blue Flag beach. Four other fine Blue Flag beaches can be found on the island, so you are never too far from a wonderful haven, perfect for swimming, sunbathing or a moonlit wander with your loved one. When you are ready for an adventure you can enjoy the many attractions available including watersports, fishing, mountain trekking and horse riding. Plus Achill Golf Club is only a short drive away, offering wonderful scenery on one of Ireland's most Westerly courses. The Great Western Greenway is a long, off road cycle trail crossing the coast and encountering beautiful, changeable scenery along the way. Enjoy the magical Clew Bay, or attempt Croagh Patrick before returning to your homely Achill Island cottage beside the sea.
