The property

This delightful cottage is situated in the West of Ireland on the outskirts of the village of Ballycastle in County Mayo. This property is ideally located for those looking to explore all that this wonderful county has to offer. Well-appointed throughout, this all ground floor property offers three comfortable bedrooms. The sociable open plan area is perfect for keeping everyone together so no one misses out on discussing the highlights of the day, and the oil stove ensures it remains a cosy place on cooler evenings. The kitchen is well equipped and the chef amongst you will be able to rustle up a delicious meal which on sunny days can be enjoyed outside on the patio. The enclosed front garden has a good-sized lawn, perfect for the children to run off the last of their energy, whilst the adults relax with a refreshing drink and plan the next day’s adventures. Alternatively a friendly game of table tennis can be enjoyed in the games room. If you fancy a pint with the locals, the village of Ballycastle is a short stroll away ensuring no-one has to drive and the village also has a shop for all your basic needs. On sunny days why not head for the nearby beach and soak up the sun’s rays? A little further afield is Ceide Fields which is surrounded by plenty of fabulous sandy beaches and where you can have a go at surfing, golf and fishing. Why not enjoy a drive along the Wild Atlantic Way with its ever-changing seascapes? A lovely cottage in a great location.
