Exceptional house, host and location. Highly recommend. Will return. Very best quality in self-catering.
The Beach-Side House is a lovely, and spacious, well-appointed home with beautiful views of the countryside including Croagh Patrick right outside the front door! It is conveniently located to tour the beautiful wild south-west Mayo area, including nearby Achill Island, and Clare Island. It is an easy drive to the towns of Louisburg and Westport. The stunning beach is easily accessed just across the road. The kitchen is spacious and very well laid out and supplied. The laundry room was most welcome with a full washer and dryer. We spent most of our time with friends around the table in the lovely sun-room, where we had many wonderful meals, followed by walks on the beach in the evenings. We loved listening to the birds that sang in the back yard with the spring sunshine the entire time we were there. Paul provided prompt and welcoming email correspondences upon booking and communicated clear and easy instructions on how to find the cottage. And he followed up on how we were doing during our stay. Julia was wonderful in greeting us and making us feel right at home. She had laid out a fire in the sitting room for us, but we had such unexpectedly fantastic weather that we did not use it. Thank you, Paul and Julia, for providing a wonderful experience for our spring Mayo stay! We definitely recommend this cottage to anyone interested in touring the Mayo countryside - there is so much to see!
We had a fabulous time at our stay at the Beach House; the house met and exceeded our expectations and it was a real pleasure to stay there. The rooms are all spacious which meant our two boys had plenty of space and they were well catered for in terms of equipment, toys and tv. Our host was also very helpful and was always on hand to answer any questions we had.
The house is only a short walk to the beach when ch we practically had to ourselves when we visited and it is a good walk to old head beach, popular for surfing etc. Close by is both Louisburg, Murrisk and Westport for eating, socialising and entertainment for the children.
Lovely location with the beach just a few minutes walk away. Hardly anyone there despite the weather being kind to us! Kayaking and paddle boarding available plus more in friendly Louisburgh and lively Westport. The house itself was very comfortable and spacious which worked perfectly for us. Definitely recommend it!
This house is fabulous. The house is adequately equipped, in excellent condition and tastefully decorated.Its location is ideal for a family as The beach is a very short walk away. Just be careful of jellyfish on the beach. We ventured to Silver Strand also (recommended by the owners) and it is stunning and no jellyfish. The owners could not be more helpful prior to our arruval and were very accommodating for a last minute request. Their family lives near and were very respectful of our stay there. I would certainly return here again. Cannot recommend it enough.
We had never heard of Old Head or Falduff beaches before our trip despite visiting Co Mayo many times but they were a highlight of our holiday. We had a week we wont forget as this house was superb, with great amenities, plenty of light and loads of space for the 8 of us.Within a few minutes walk of the aforementioned beaches and close to all the amenities that the lovely towns of Westport and Louisburg offer including great cafes,bars,restaurants and cycle/walking trails to beat the band. The good weather helped enormously but even on the odd dull day we found plenty to amuse us. We will be back.
