The property

Enjoying a rural position on the outskirts of the vibrant town of Westport within the majestic setting of County Mayo is this traditional Irish cottage, Birch Tree Cottage.

This spacious accommodation has been designed with a family in mind, ideal for those seeking to explore this corner of Western Ireland’s wildlife wonders, dramatic coastline and breath-taking vistas.

Kick off your walking shoes at the foot of the door before relaxing into your evening within the brightly decorated property, offering a tranquil retreat to return to each evening, as well as housing everything you could possibly need during a week-long break.

Gather with your loved ones within the open-plan living room, where you can light up the fire and cosy up during the evening, and cater your own delicious evening meals and dine in front of the bay window which offers charming views of your garden to admire as you tuck in.

For an hour’s peace and quiet, venture into the separate sitting room where an open-fire offers comfort during a winter’s evening.

As the evening draws to a close, find a flexible sleeping arrangement awaiting you with a choice of two double bedrooms and a single bedroom to cater for the needs of your group.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful accommodation, head into Westport which is famous for its love of music with most of its bars hosting live music week-in, week out.

Here, you will also find a superb selection of cafés, pubs and restaurants to cater to every tastes.

For those feeling active, find miles of walks upon the Croagh Patrick boasting breath-taking scenery, alternatively there is the Murrisk Loop and the Granuaile Loop to explore.

Venture slightly further afield to County Galway, where you will be delighted by the coastal scenery that awaits you, as well as the Connemara National Park.
