About this listing

The Space
My cottage is located on a hill overlooking, and 500metres from the town centre of the heritage town of Westport, Co Mayo. It is cosy and private with all necessary conveniences. Heating is from an oil fired boiler and an open fire supplied with ample logs. It has its own private meditation garden with a cosy smokers corner for the strugglers !

Westport, in the County of Mayo, Ireland is a magical town. Many have visited, returned home to pack their bags and move back to live, as I did 13 years ago! We boast an eclectic community who take a real pride in the town.

It is special, and acknowledged as such throughout Ireland, as the best place to live in Ireland. It has the appearance and feeling of a quaint small town but offers a wide range of amenities to worldwide visitors to suit all tastes and levels of fitness.

From playing a round of golf on a stunning golf course at the foot of our holy mountain Croagh Patrick, five minutes away by car or perhaps horse riding along the sandy beach? The choice is endless.

Many visitors feel that they cannot leave without a Croagh Patrick climb. The sense of achievement witnessed by those who climbed is a delight to see. Less strenuous swimming, both indoors or out at a local beach is also available,

The newly developed 42km off road “Greenway” for cycling enthusiasts can be accessed minutes from the cottage. (Local rental available) As can a game of tennis, just at the end of my road.

The surrounding area boasts Clare Island accessed by boat for those who like quiet time or a visit to Achill Island with its striking cliffs and sandy beaches is an hour away by car

Westport House and Country Park is located minutes away. It is one of the most popular attractions in Westport with its extraordinary mixture of history, culture and fun for all the family. Consider a visit to the Westport House & the amazing Pirate Adventure Park.

Unique and charming, the heritage town of Westport is a captivating blend of traditional and modern. From the cosiest corner of an antique pub to state-of-the-art conference facilities; from the heart-stirring beat of traditional music to the cosmopolitan approach, contrast and paradox are just part of its charm.

The town boasts many excellant and some award winning resturants and coffee shops.

Many more attractions are available. Just too many to list here.The private cottage is situated just 4 minutes walk from the historic town of Westport and one minute from the start of the now famous Greenway. It is perfect for families.

Response from Katherine:

I am so disappointed Emilie, I do not have a strong sense of smell but guests following you needed windows opened to release the smell of your cigarettes. Despite notices you obviously smoked a lot in a NON smoking house.
