The property

This traditional style detached Westport cottage is set on the outskirts of the sleepy hamlet of Drummin, 10 miles from Westport in County Mayo. Set entirely over the ground floor, this Westport cottage dates back over 200 years, and still retains many original and quirky features which add to its charm and attraction including uneven and sloping floors, low-height door frames, the beautiful thatched roof and a traditional Irish fireplace, complete with warming woodburner. Oozing traditional Irish charm, this delightfully cosy, compact cottage makes the perfect escape from everyday life, and a unique change from most Westport holiday cottages. The open plan living space inside benefits from the woodburner, so while you're cooking in the kitchen of this Westport self-catering cottage, and enjoying a family meal in the dining area, you can make the most of the cosy atmosphere. Sit out and relax in the lawned garden of this Westport cottage, and make the most of the mountain views, or for the more energetic, there is great walking and hiking in the area. Nearby Westport is an official access point for the award-winning off road cycling and walking trail the Great Western Greenway. This traffic-free route runs between Westport and Achill Island along the route of the old railway line, and enjoys some magnificent scenery including along the Clew Bay coastline. This thatched hideaway is a wonderful Westport holiday cottage with a difference.
