Step inside to uncover the wonders of the property, with the sitting room first greeting you, it’s ideally laid out for you to kick back and relax as soon as you arrive.

Take a seat on the plush red sofa as the kettle boils and take in your surroundings, this room is also home to the dining area, so you can all gather to enjoy all your favourite meals around the traditional wooden table.

The sitting room also benefits from a warming woodburning stove, pull up a chair and take a book from the landing whilst snuggled up in this idyllic spot.

Following through from here will bring you to the contemporary-styled kitchen, a modest spot, but home to everything you could need to aid all your culinary needs.

Walk through the utility and out onto your own private patio area, perfectly enclosed for both the little ones and your furry friend to play freely, it makes the perfect spot to enjoy alfresco dining or your morning coffee.

The ground floor is also home to one of the four bedrooms; a family room holding a double and a single and a convenient en-suite cloakroom, as well as benefiting from a ground-floor shower room, this room is ideal for those with small children.

About the location


Westport 20 miles; Galway 30 miles.

Ballinrobe is a lively market town on the River Robe in County Mayo, close to Lough Mask, Lough Carra and Lough Corrib. Geographically, it is ideally located as a touring base for those wishing to explore Galway, Mayo and west Ireland. Dating back to the 1300s, Ballinrobe is believed to be the oldest town in South Mayo, and is surrounded by many features of archaeological, architectural, historic and ecological interest. Ballinrobe is known as the lake angling centre of the west, and with 60,000 acres of lough fishing, and miles of river fishing close by, it is easy to see why, plus the town offers a championship 18 hole golf course and spring and summer horse racing meetings. For day trips, the stunning Mayo coastline can be easily reached in half an hour, and a visit to the world-famous Connemara National Park, with its breathtaking walks and amazing scenery, makes for an unforgettable day trip.
