Caroline's seaside cottage was the perfect starting point for our trip to Westport and Croagh Patrick. Located just 10 minutes outside Westport, we felt like we were in the most beautiful part of the back country, with great views of Croagh Patrick and its surrounding mountains, despite being just a short drive from town. We only wished we could've stayed longer - Caroline's hospitality (especially her breakfast) was some of the finest we experienced on our trip to Ireland. Definitely stay here if you have the chance!
Caroline ist eine sehr herzliche Gastgeberin. Wir fühlten uns sehr willkommen und haben es genossen, mit Tipps für die Umgebung versorgt zu werden. Die Atmosphäre ist sehr familiär und offen. Die Abgeschiedenheit der Unterkunft ist herrlich. Thanks Caroline for being our host. We will remember the days in your house and the last evening.
Our stay was perfect. Caroline's house is located in a very quiet place, with parking space. The house is comfortable, with a lovely sitting room. Breakfast (muesli, yogurt, juice, rolls with butter and jam, and strong good coffee) is in another beautiful room with an amazing view towards Croagh Patrick. The room is just perfect, just as the (email hidden)roline was extremely friendly offering us coffee or tea on arrival and gave us nice tips (like going to the local pub - Bucklefield)...we'll definitely go back if we get the chance....almost forgot Zack, the little adorable dog....all he wants is being cuddled...
We had a lovely albeit brief stay at the Seaside Cottage. We were delayed getting there and it was late by the time we arrived, Caroline accommodated our late arrival no problem. It's a little distance outside Westport but if you are cycling or driving it's ok. We were doing the Greenway and were due to cycle from there to Achill, although plans changed due to a little rain in the morning. So we drove to newport. Saw some nice countryside on the journey there, would be nice to cycle from there if we visit again! We had a nice stay there, Caroline was a lovely host and her little dog zak was adorable!
Caroline was a truly kind and wonderful host. Her home was welcoming, clean, and a pleasure to stay in. Caroline provided me with helpful tips on places to enjoy in Westport. She was even kind enough to drive me into town because I did not have a car. Staying with Caroline and her family was one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland, would absolutely recommend!
Caroline is a fantastic host and has a lovely home with two of the cutest animals to keep you company if you want which we did. She served us a nice little breaky in her sitting room with an amazing view of Croagh Patrick. She provided excellent recommendations for our stay on dinner and site seeing. If you are looking for a nice place to stay off the beaten path don't hesitate to book.
I enjoyed staying here and Caroline made me feel right at home. The room was lovely and airy and very comfortable. Views were stunning aswell! I would return here on my next visit.
