We booked 'Avalon' for a family holiday in picturesque Louisburgh. From the website description we knew the house could comfortably accommodate 11 people and that it was located by a beach but nothing prepared us for the 'wow' factor of arriving and seeing it in person. The house has wall to wall glass on 2 sides of the open plan sitting/dining area, with spectacular views of the ocean and Achill Island. The huge kitchen table seats 14 people and there are 4 leather sofas with a 42" TV. Old Head Beach is a two minute walk from the house and has gorgeous soft sand and some huge rocks, no little pebbles. Croach Patrick peers over the back of the houses - there is a second smaller house beside 'Avalon' that I believe can be booked too for bigger groups. The beds are the comfiest you'll find, perfect after doing the 17km Famine Walk that we did. Generally everything in the house is really high quality, including the two high chairs. I would highly recommend this house and the area for a holiday, we are definitely going to stay again.
