    It was easy to find, extremely clean, warm, and welcoming. The host had left lovely little touches around the house, from a bottle of water in the fridge, to a little box of supplies should we have forgotten our own. Supplies included teabags, sugar, shampoo, conditioner etc...a packet of very welcome chocolate biscuit bars... and BEST OF ALL!!, turf and firelighters set up in the fireplace for a ready-to-go fire, all we needed was a match to light it...and of course there was a box of matches waiting on the mantlepiece! The beds were so clean and comfortable, we slept so well, the cushions and extra blankets, warm soft fleece were just fantastic. Loved the kitchenware, and kids toys. They thought of everything. It was just so cosy and nurturing to stay here. The level of cleanliness is amazing and the views are stunning. We wanted somewhere between Achill and Westport, so the location for us was perfect. Thank you so much for your lovely home from home, we had a wonderful time.

About the location

ACHILL ISLAND, COUNTY MAYO

Westport 33 miles.

At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but watersports are always easy to find. Try surfing, windsurfing, canoeing or kayaking on one of the beautiful beaches, enjoy a horse ride along the coast, or simply take a stroll through the sand. With its beautiful mountainous landscape, Achill Island provides great walking, and the Atlantic Drive, 40km of coastal scenery, is perfect for cars and bicycles alike. Visit the Deserted Village at Slievemore, or the Tower at Kildavnet and discover some of Achill Island's history, or just over 30 miles away lies the town of Westport, on the mainland, ideal for a day out. A lovely island, with endless possibilities.
