The property

Louisburgh 2.7 miles.

This inviting, detached cottage sits just off the main Westport to Louisburgh road in the beautiful County Mayo.

Boasting stunning sea and mountain views, Old Head View provides an excellent family retreat to this Irish region, close to the amenities of Westport and within easy reach of two beaches.

Kick off your walking boots and head to the sitting room, where you can unwind beside the woodburning stove and catch up on some television, pondering on the day’s events.

Move into the kitchen/diner, featuring all the essentials for a week-away, including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and even a washing machine and tumble dryer, so you can easily freshen up your clothes.

Enjoy mealtimes at the dining table, toasting to a much-needed escape with your nearest and dearest.

Freshen up with a rinse in the shower room before choosing between three bedrooms to lay your rest; the master houses a double with en-suite shower, whilst there is a standard double and bunk as well.

Start the morning with a fresh coffee and step out to the lawned garden, appreciating those striking mountain and sea views that encourage your exploration.

The little town of Louisburgh is along the road and offers two restaurants and a handful of pubs, perfect for when you fancy a night away from the kitchen, plus there is a convenience store for grabbing those essentials.

Take advantage of the local beaches, dipping your toes in the Atlantic waters or testing your skills at a new watersport.

The surrounding area is a haven for walkers and cyclists, with the world famous Atlantic Way begging to be explored with its abundance of scenic splendour.

Take the ferry from Roonagh Point to Clare Island for a unique day trip that is filled with history and natural beauty.

Book a stay at Old Head View and look forward to your next Irish escape.
