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.

This house was lovely and had everything we needed. I loved the location and the charm. Great location to explore Mayo, remote but not too far from various destinations. The entire house was clean and comfy. Hoping to return soon.

We stayed at Teach mo Chroi – Home of My Heart – cottage for a week this September and it was the perfect place for our group. From the gate, emerald green lawn, and flower-filled window boxes to the spacious interior, it is a lovely place, had everything we needed and was very comfortable for our group of seven people....
