    “Very peaceful”

    Recently stayed here at Sound cottage for a week. Fantastic views all round views of sea and the mountains and shore line at the bottom of where garden ends. A very nice Irish cottage cottage warm and cosy and a perfect place to to relax and let your mind wonder. The donkeys Mary and Shelia love a carrot or an apple.

This homely, detached cottage sits in a stunning coastal location, within easy reach of the village of Achill Sound on Achill Island, in County Mayo.

Positioned at the end of a country lane, this charming Achill Island cottage enjoys peace and quiet, and has been thoughtfully appointed with a traditional style to offer couples and small families a cosy, romantic base whilst enjoying a holiday in this beautiful area of Ireland.

The accommodation at this Achill Island cottage sits entirely across the ground floor, with one internal step between the kitchen and hall, offering three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen with a dining area and a comfortable sitting room benefiting from the warmth of a lovely multi-fuel stove.

Wonderful views across the sea can be enjoyed from the garden, so you can have an alfresco meal before wandering down to the shore.

Achill Sound sits on Achill Island, enclosed by sweeping countryside and offering a stunning, unspoilt horseshoe bay, complete with a beautiful Blue Flag beach.

Four other fine Blue Flag beaches can be found on the island, so you are never too far from a wonderful haven, perfect for swimming, sunbathing or a moonlit wander with your loved one.

When you are ready for an adventure you can enjoy the many attractions available including watersports, fishing, mountain trekking and horse riding.

Plus Achill Golf Club is only a short drive away, offering wonderful scenery on one of Ireland's most Westerly courses.

About the location

ACHILL ISLAND, COUNTY MAYO

Westport 33 miles.

At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but watersports are always easy to find. Try surfing, windsurfing, canoeing or kayaking on one of the beautiful beaches, enjoy a horse ride along the coast, or simply take a stroll through the sand. With its beautiful mountainous landscape, Achill Island provides great walking, and the Atlantic Drive, 40km of coastal scenery, is perfect for cars and bicycles alike. Visit the Deserted Village at Slievemore, or the Tower at Kildavnet and discover some of Achill Island's history, or just over 30 miles away lies the town of Westport, on the mainland, ideal for a day out. A lovely island, with endless possibilities.
