“Excellent accomodation very much the perfect pet friendly home from home”

With trepidation we decided, for the first time, to try holiday rental. We went online and found "Dun Briste". It was in the perfect location for us to explore the north coast's of Mayo and west Sligo. And as we are both in our 70's. we were looking for an easy going time, such as beach and short forestry walks. These we found, one of each close to Ballycastle. The 600m long golden sand is just 1.5km N of the village and the forestry we walked is about the same distance W of Ballycastle, total walk distance was around 800m. Further W and for the more adventurist, there are many 100's of km of forestry and mountains walks there for you. Plus the "Western Way" passes E and W through the area. Further afield we found several more beaches to enjoy. One of these was at Inishcrone, where we also seen the famous Boeing 767 passenger jet parked up!!. 8km to the W are the historic Ceide Fields. Where you can witness the remnants of some of the oldest field boundary stone walls in Western Europe and an interpretive centre which describes the whole site in detail. Continue on W for about 45km and you arrive at the lovely town of Belmullet. A good stop over for lunch and a walk around the town. If you wish you can travel 20km S down the Belmullet Peninsula to Blacksod point lighthouse. To the W and E of the peninsula are at least 10 beaches to walk. Twice we headed S, first to Knock, a religious centre and on another day to Castlebar. A very good shopping town and also the largest town in Mayo. 7km before Castlebar on the N5 road is a district named Turlough, here is situated the Museum of Country Life. It depicts life in NW Ireland over the last 500 years and worth a visit, if that's your interest. Car parking and entry is free. Back in Ballycastle and I've kept the best to last. Downpatrick Head-Dun Briste (Irish for broken fort) after which the holiday let is named and well worth a visit. Be aware though, because 2 to 300ft unfenced cliffs, dogs are not allowed and children MUST be STRICTLY supervised. That apart, well worth a visit and again free. There is a blow hole here (during northerly storms the sea is pushed into a cave and and spouts out of the hole) about 200m inland. Nearby are the remains of a small church apparently built by St Patrick. Also here is one of the many World War 2 markers depicting EIRE carved into the surface to show pilots that they are over Irish Free State territory. This one is number 64. Well that's about the end of our VERY enjoyable visit to Dun Briste, Ballycastle.

I have stayed in Dun Briste a number of times. The attention to detail in the property is outstanding. The views are breathtaking and so many places of interest within a short distance. Highly recommended.
