The property

Newport 6 mile.

Overlooking a beautiful trout lake, set in wild countryside and with mountains all around, is Nephin Beg Cottage.

This cosy accommodation offers two couples or a small family the chance to escape to a rural setting with nothing but peace and quiet for comfort.

Approached via a quiet lane, with ample off-road parking and a verdant garden enveloping the property on three sides, feel a warm welcome from the moment you arrive.

On entrance you have the sitting room, with a lovely seating arrangement crowded around the fireplace.

Gather with your loved ones after a day out exploring the area and choose from your favourite programmes on the Saorview TV or play one of the games with the kids.

For some quiet time of your own, find a spot in the kitchen next to the cosy woodburner and get lost in a good book with a hot drink.

The kitchen also offers a lovely sociable space for dining and sleek integrated units assisting each mealtime.

There are two bedrooms to rest your head in after a big adventure along the Burrishoole and Mulranny Loops; choose from two doubles, each neutrally designed with wooden flooring and peaceful views out over green countryside.

The bathroom serves both with a bath tub, basin and WC, ideal for a hot soak on return from a long walk.

On a warm day you can use the patio for a chilled drink while the kids play on the lawn.

Nephin Beg Cottage enjoys a secluded setting yet allows only six miles to the town of Newport, with plenty of amenities to satisfy your needs.

Choose from friendly pubs and delicious eateries with the picturesque harbour offering excellent fishing.

Its 19th century red sandstone viaduct is the ancestral home of Princess Grace of Monaco, a hidden gem which beckons visitors from all over.

The Great Western Greenway near Westport offers superb cycling trails, while Clare Island, reached by ferry from Roonah Point, boasts sweeping views and a 14th-century abbey.

Choose this delightful cottage for your next needed getaway in a tranquil situation.

Clew Bay is famed for its sea angling and water activities for any level of experience. Flowing through the town is the Black Oak River providing excellent fishing opportunities and wonderful walkways along its grassy banks and the Beltra Lake is also regarded as one of the best fresh water fishing lakes in Europe. Newport holds an annual ‘Splash’ festival, a fun filled day of water themed activities for young and old. The town of Newport is home to a charming coffee shop, welcoming pubs and mouth watering eateries, all complemented by the 19th century viaduct on the main street.
