“Fantastic place to explore Westport from”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from this beautiful property after spending a glorious week with family and friends.

The house has everything you could ask for, there was nothing that wasn't provided, including some essentials which meant we wouldn't need to rush out to the supermarket after a long drive with tetchy kids!

The surrounding area, including the land that the house is built on is just breathtaking, we enjoyed a couple of treks up over the hill and onto the pebble beach and strolling back round the Island towards the house, with little ones in tow, this took us a good couple of hours (with all the pottering, looking for shells and throwing stones into the sea that has to be done!) I'm sure with just adults it would maybe only take an hour!

The house is a luxurious base to explore the area from, we only spent one full day here without visiting elsewhere (the day we explored the pebble beach) but I'm sure if you were here without kids there would be nothing nicer than lying about, reading the papers with the roaring fire lit.

Raymond and Anne couldn't have been more helpful, at the end of a phone if we needed advice and we received a couple of texts seeing how things were going and if we needed anything.

It has shown to us that you definitely get what you pay for - this is most certainly 5 star accommodation, we have stayed in other properties in this area and other nearby areas that we wouldn't return to but we would have no hesitation in recommending the house to anyone and are even hoping to return ourselves in the not too distant future!

“Picture postcard perfect”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was the first time the family had ventured to Mayo, and what a treat it was.
The property was first class, the owners, Raymond & Anne so considerate and helpful for the duration.

The scenery around was amazing, just like photos used on postcards, whilst our party did not attempt to climb Croagh Patrick, it's awesome presence dominated the view.

Westport as a town had so much to offer, and plenty of boat rips and walking places.
Excellent vacation
Excellent holiday home

“Dream House”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a week with my partner. We were blown away with the house, so much to do in the West of Ireland but we barely wanted to leave the house as it was so comfortable and luxurious. There was only 2 of us and it felt really cozy but the house has 4 high quality bedrooms and so much living space and a large kitchen/dining area that it would be ideal for larger groups too. Could not believe the beauty of the location and the beauty of the house to match it. Waking up to the view of the sea so close every morning was a dream. It is only 10 minutes drive from Westport and it was so scenic and peaceful where the house is located it was perfect. There is so much to do in the area around Westport and to have this house as a base was a pleasure. The pictures do not do this house justice and I would definitely recommend it to anyone to stay here.

“A magical experience!”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We arrived late on a December evening in the dark and on approaching the house, we could see, from the other side of the bay, Christmas tree lights on both floors welcoming us. It was wild on arrival but once we shut the door and explored this amazing house, we realised that this place had the WOW factor and settled in for the night with an eclectic mix of books, films and music.
After a wonderful night's sleep in one of the most beautiful and comfortable beds that I have ever slept in, we pulled up the blinds and looked out on a stunning view of Clew Bay and a lone boatman passing, almost at the front gate!!
The floor to ceiling windows in some of the rooms offer uninterrupted views of the bay.
Anyone interested in architecture would be amazed at the beautiful design and layout of this house and anyone with a love of nature would be in their element here.
The owners couldn't have done more to facilitate our every need. They were at the end of the phone to offer advice on walks, places to explore and even the names of the friendly locals in case we needed assistance during our stay.
This is a magical little treasure in the west of Ireland, not to be missed. Don't hesitate - GO WEST!!

“Exceptional holiday”
Reviewed 4 May 2015 for a stay in August 2013

I was lucky to holiday in this beautiful house on a couple of occasions both with friends and separately with my partner Karen. On both occasions the booking process was effortless thanks to Ray and Anne. Ray has a fantastic knowledge of the area and had genuine interest in making our stay as special and as fun as possible.

If you think the photos of the house look fantastic they don't do it justice. The drive to the house is amazing but nothing prepares you for the views from the house. They are just breathtaking especially on a warm summer evening.

The house is huge with every conceivable mod con!!. You could live in the living room alone with its luxurious couch, bar and pool table... Need I say any more!

We spent most of the week on bicycles, and the pub, touring the various little towns as the house is only a short distance from Westport and Newport. We took advantage of the new greenway which is a dedicated cycle path that takes you all the way to Achill Island. Was lucky to also go fishing in Clew Bay one afternoon where we probably caught at least 30 mackerel. The BBQ later that night was fantastic.

This is definitely a location that has a lot of things to see and do and can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways whether with friends or just someone special. I can't recommend this place enough as its exceptional.
