The property

Bangor Erris 3.2 miles.

Situated on the Shores of Carrowmore Lake, Saoirse, a fabulous, five-bedroom home, located in Gortmore near Bangor Erris, County Mayo, offers breathtaking lake views.

Resting rurally, offering a tranquil base for guests, the aptly-named Saoirse, which means "freedom" in Gaelic, features a lofty private driveway, an enclosed garden, enjoying elevated, uninterrupted vistas, and flexible sleeping arrangements, making it a tranquil, stunning setting for a family of nine to enjoy.

Park up on the driveway, taking in your scenic surroundings, before stepping indoors to unwind in the homely sitting room, complete with plush seating and a crackling open fire.

Continue into the kitchen/diner where you can prepare and enjoy mealtimes as a family, or if the weather allows, be sure to set one of the patio tables, with the stunning lake as your backdrop.

As the sun sets, select between five well-appointed bedrooms, with two doubles and a twin resting on the ground floor, serviced by a shower room.

Climb the stairs to locate two further bedrooms, a further double, and a twin, also with a neighbouring shower room for convenience.

Awaken to a coffee in the suntrap conservatory, before heading into Bangor Erris for your nearest amenities, or if you'd prefer to stay at home, take in the picturesque, lakeside views, also offering keen anglers the chance to fish.

Saoirse is ideally located along the Wild Atlantic Way and is perfectly situated to explore what North Mayo has to offer, being an ideal base to explore the magnificent scenery and landscapes of the Erris Peninsula, the Blacksod Lighthouse, and Ballina, the ancestral home of Joe Biden!

Embark on a sea safari to visit the islands off the Erris Coast, where the Belmullet Tidal Pool and Knock Shrine can be found.

For further viewpoints, head to the Mullet Peninsula or the Céide Fields archaeological site, offering views across the Mayo coastline, whilst Downpatrick Head delivers dramatic, clifftop vistas across the county.

Enjoy a day trip to Nephin National Park, offering the perfect landscape for nature-filled mountain walks, cycling, hikes, or head to Achill Island where you can try your hand at surfing or an afternoon of watersports at the world-famous Keem Bay, before heading to the Ceide Fields to witness a 5000 year old archaeological site first hand.

About the location


Belmullet 12 miles; Ballina 27 miles; Castlebar 36 miles.

The small town of Bangor Erris is set by the banks of the River Owenmore near Carrowmore Lake which makes it a fantastic base for fishing enthusiasts. Carrowmore Lake is well-known for being a great location for fly-fishing with salmon and sea trout on offer. The town itself is ideally situated on the main road between Ballina and Belmullet which opens up access to the whole of County Mayo and to the south is the Bangor Trail, a hiking route which takes you through the Nephin Beg mountain range. If you fancy a night off from cooking after a busy day spent exploring the area, the town has three pubs which are sure to provide a warm welcome and some Irish hospitality. There is also a shop for you to stock up on supplies during your stay. Bangor Erris is a brilliant starting point for your Irish adventures.
