    “Carraigeen is located beside the shoreline in the village of Belmullet with beautiful views over Achill sound.”

    ...

    Quiet and peaceful, the perfect place to stay on a holiday. Aoife provided a very generous food starter pack which included freshly baked scones complete with raspberry jam and freshly whipped cream. The house was warm and cosy and more than exceeded our expectations. Carraigeen is the perfect starting point for walking and driving tours around the spectacular coastal scenery of Mayo. We enjoyed playing golf on the supreme Carne Golf Links which was a short 10 minute drive from the house. We have stayed in many Sykes cottages over the past seven years and Carraigeen is at the top of tree and we will return in the future.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the coastal town of Belmullet, in the County Mayo area of Ireland, is this delightful semi-detached cottage.

Entering through the front door, you walk into a small porch area which has a delightful rocking chair, where you can sit and simply delight in the stunning views across the sea inlet, whilst getting some quiet time and reading a good book.

Walk through to the open-plan living space, boasting a wonderfully spacious lounge, where you can curl up with your loved ones to relax and unwind into the evening, with a lovely woodburning stove to provide that extra bit of warmth during those chillier evenings.

The kitchen has been fitted with a quality set of white units and sleek wooden worktops, housing a range of contemporary appliances so you can easily cook up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole family!

Gather around either of the two dining tables to enjoy your meals over a glass of something chilled and catch up with the day's events.

With all the rooms being on the ground floor, you will have easy access to two well-presented bedrooms, a double and twin, where you can wake up to the magnificent views across the coastline every morning!

Delight in the traditional, sliding wooden door leading into a modern family bathroom, with a fitted back and a walk-in shower, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day.

Outside, there are plenty of garden areas to the front and rear where you can sit with a refreshing drink and simply take in your wonderful coastal location.

Resting just outside of the Mullet Peninsula, you have easy access to a number of tourist attractions that are a must-see during your trip, including Blacksod Bay.

Further afield, you will find the picturesque Ballycroy National Park, spanning across 15,000 hectares of Atlantic blanket bog, with mountains, perfect for those keen walkers and hikers among you.

Explore this unspoilt wilderness with your loved ones, or travel along the coastal route for some cycling opportunities.

This area is ever-growingly popular for water sports such as fishing and sailing, whilst Belmullet itself has a wonderful golf course for practising your swing.

Venture towards the magnificent Céide Fields, a Neolithic site resting along the north coastline and is particularly popular for its sea cliffs and beautiful country and coastal scenery.

Return to Carraigeen for a relaxing evening with your loved ones in front of the warming fire.

About the location

BELMULLET, COUNTY MAYO

Bangor Erris 12 miles.

Known as the capital of the Mullet Peninsula in the barony of Erris, the coastal town of Belmullet rests between Blacksod and Broadhaven Bays, inlets of the Atlantic Ocean, and represents the entry point to this mystical and unspoilt County Mayo headland. Although classed as a Gaeltacht (or Irish-speaking) area, English is universally used. Much of the native culture and heritage of Ireland can be experienced here, from traditional Irish music to the song and dance for which Ireland is renowned the world over. Many visitors to the area enjoy the fantastic fishing on offer, both salt and fresh water, while watersports are also popular with surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing available from the beaches locally. Welcoming and friendly, the town boasts a number of pubs, four hotels, shops and seafood restaurants, as well as a selection of festivals throughout the year. You can also visit the Gateway Leisure Park, ideal for a family day out on those rainy days with various leisure and sporting activities for the children. At the four corners of Erris you will find the Neolithic Cèide Fields, the unspoilt wilderness of Ballycroy National Park, the towering cliffs of Ceann Iorrais (Erris Head) and the final resting place of the fabled Children of Lir, the island of Inis Gluaire.
