The property

Ballintubber 3.5 miles.

Kate's Cottage is a delightful, two-bedroom bungalow resting in the quaint setting of Killawullaun East, near Ballintubber in County Mayo.

Boasting off-road parking for up to four cars, outdoor garden space, and a great location just a short drive from nearby amenities and the coastline, this superb retreat welcomes a small family or a group of friends seeking a relaxing, self-catered escape in rural Ireland.

Park up off-road outside Kate's Cottage, taking a moment to breathe in your tranquil new surroundings before you step inside your new home-from-home.

Upon entering, be welcomed into an elegant, tastefully-appointed home, which features thoughtfully-preserved exposed brick walls and wooden embellishments throughout.

Get to work in the fully-equipped kitchen, which houses all the appliances the chosen chef will need to prepare delicious, home-cooked dinners.

Savour your meals as a group at the dining table, before you settle down to enjoy some of your favourite shows on the TV as the day rolls into night.

When sleep inevitably calls, retreat to the sleek shower room for a rejuvenating cleanse before you catch your valuable rest in either a plush double or an inviting single bedroom, the latter of which comes with an en-suite cloakroom for added convenience.

After finishing your laundry in the handy utility, lace up your shoes and set out to explore what your local region has to offer.

A brief drive will bring you to the shimmering waters of Lough Mask and Tourmakeady Waterfalls, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, or head further to Ballintubber to tour Ballintubber Abbey and Moore Hall, before reaching a hub of amenities, where you can stock up on the homely essentials at Costcutter Ballintubber, and enjoy some traditional pub fare at Corley’s pub.

The nearest town of interest is Castlebar, located just a short drive north of Ballyhean, where visitors can follow the Lough Lannagh walkway and local greenway to Turlough, catch a live show at The Royal Theatre and Event Centre, delight in a peaceful walk along the Castlebar Greenway, or experience nature at its most idyllic at Saleen Lake.

To the west lies Westport, a bustling coastal settlement where you can embark on a tour with the Westport Sea Safari, closely located to the Atlantic Drive, or travel back in time at the grand Georgian estate of Westport House.

With the Knock Shrine reachable by car, a National Marian shrine and pilgrimage centre showcasing history from 1879, there’s all sorts to see and do, for all types of visitors.

All of this and more is yours to enjoy when you book Kate's Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €250.
