Drive down our little boreen, through the canopy of trees, to the gates of 'Teach Mo Chroi', a fresh friendly country home overlooking the Partry Mountains and Croagh Patrick. Our boreen, Irish for tiny one-lane road, is just a 1/4 mile off N84 and midway between Castlebar and Ballinrobe Town. Only a 15 minute drive into Westport, a bustling seaside town on the Atlantic's Clew Bay, an hour to Galway City, and 25 minutes to Cong Village, home to Ashford Castle and The Quiet Man Cottage.
'Teach Mo Chroi' meaning 'Home of My Heart', is set upon an acre of meadowland amidst the farmland of Cartronbower, Ballintubber, where your nearest neighbor is likely to be the cow or sheep in a nearby field. There's nothing quite as nice as awakening to the birdsong on a fine summer morning.

Relax with a cup of tea on the patio beside sunlit mountains; or pluck a novel from the book shelves and settle in for a good read. When night falls, the sky is transformed into a visual feast of stars!

Cartronbower boreen serves as a walking route to many of the locals because its peaceful and rarely traveled. Wander down its winding path and you're likely to encounter cows, horses, or donkeys in the surrounding fields, each known to enjoy a carrot or apple from a friendly passerby. In early Spring, the fields are alive with the sights and sounds of baby lambs, a vision to behold for children and adults alike. A portion of the front garden is a soccer/gaelic football field complete with 2 netted goals.
