    “This is our 5th stay at the property, in that 5 years the central heating has never worked, neither has the downstairs shower.”

    Inside the property needs to be painted and a good maintenance carried out. We book this property because of the location and we have always found it clean and we know what to expect.

The property

This fantastic house is in a stunning setting just 100 metres from the blue flag beach in Dugort which provides fantastic sea views and an easy walk down to the sea edge.

Ideal for a family or group of friends who are looking to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet of the area, this charming property provides a lovely base set amongst beautiful scenery and mount Slievemore.

The cottage is set over two floors and has four bedrooms which have been comfortably furnished and decorated.

On the ground floor the open plan living area has a well-equipped kitchen where you can prepare home cooked evening meals to be enjoyed in the dining area.

You could even get a picnic together to take out with you while you explore the nearby area.

When you return in the evenings the sitting area has an open fire to keep you warm and cosy and is a relaxing place to enjoy spending time reading a good book.

With such an inviting beach on your doorstep you must wander down and enjoy the summer sun while the children play before walking the short distance home.

This fantastic island has so many picturesque areas to discover you will not be short of anywhere to go when you put your walking boots on or hop on your bike.

If you fancy trying something more adventurous then you are only a short drive from the village of Keel which is a haven for watersports and you could book a surfing lesson to really experience the wild Atlantic waves.

For any fishing enthusiasts in the group there are many spots available further inland and a good range of pubs and cafés to enjoy a meal on your way back to the cottage.

Further afield you can visit the town of Westport on the mainland and experience the culture and Irish welcome in one of the local pubs while you listen to traditional music.

The Cottage is a fantastic choice in a perfect location which you will find yourself wanting to return to before you’ve even left.

About the location


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.
