“Super house, super Location, super value”
Reviewed 12 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We just spent one night here, but I wish it could have been more. A really lovely location, views in every direction, 5 minute walk from The Tavern bar where they do great food, short trip into Westport and Louisburgh, right beside Croagh Patrick, lovely clean modern house, what more do you need
And to top it off there was fresh milk and tea when we arrived!

“The most beautiful house we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We couldn't believe it when we pulled up at this breath-taking property. Every part of it was perfect, each room was spacious, clean and cosy with the most amazing views and horses by the window! The owner was so friendly and welcoming even purchasing fresh milk for us. We wished we had booked longer and definitely plan to stay again.

Thankyou so much for a wonderful stay! There is nothing at all that any of us can criticize about this property. Amazing and great value.

We had a great stay in Ard na Mara house. We were two families with young children. The house has plenty of space inside & out. Very well laid out & scenery beautiful! Right under the Croagh Patrick mountain! John the owner is very friendly & helpful. Westport town is just a short drive away & also Westport house which is a brilliant day out for the whole family! There is a lovely bar at the bottom of the road which we ate in a few times food is delicious & friendly staff too. There is a lovely sandy beach few miles up the road called old head we really enjoyed our day there. Would definitely recommend this house will hopefully be back

“One word " Fabulous"”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Are Na Mara is a beautiful bungalow very clean and well fitted out. We were met by a lovely lady Anne as John was away. But on his return he came round to meet us and we found him very friendly .The views of the Reek were spectacular we watched everybody else climbing as it was not for the faint hearted. We loved going down to the small harbour and doing a spot of crabing caught 30 in one session. Food in the local Tavern is excellent. We went into Westport 3 nights local taxi 10 eur West hotel very good and bar meals in cobblers bar very good .Loads of bars our favourites were Morans and Conroy's on Bridge St .You will not be disappointed with a stay at Ard Na Mara it is such a comfortable house with everything Thankyou John and family xx

“Perfect holiday home!”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Ard na Mara House was a perfect holiday home for us as we were travelling with our toddler and the layout and setting suited a family really well. It's situated near to Westport and within 5 minutes drive from the beach. The local pub, The Tavern does good food and is a short walk from the house and caters for all the family.
The house is ideally placed for the many activities that can be done in the area, whether it be water sports, fishing, walking or just relaxing - would thoroughly recommend it!
John met us when we arrived, made us feel very welcome and was on hand to help if needed.
