The Neighborhood

Louisburgh is a wonderful destination requiring travel from Westport (voted Ireland's best place to live 2012/13), by the most scenic Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick, St Patrick's holy mountain, to get to. Every year many people make a pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick for quiet reflection and contemplation or simply to climb the mountain and take in the fabulous views from the summit.
Our home is within walking distance of Louisburgh, a quaint small village offering a range of shops, restaurants and bars and Heritage Centre to the Great Famine. Also close by is Carrowmore blue flag beach and further along Old Head and Carrowniskey beaches -great for surfing. A local ferry service travels across to Clare Island.
The drive from Louisburgh through Delphi Mountain Resort Connemara to Lenanne (site of The Field film) and further afield to Connemara National Park and Kylemore Abbey is simply fabulous.

  • Lovely holiday cottage in a fantastic part of Ireland. Maeve was a great host and we will be back for another escape some time soon.

  • Maeves house was very tidy, clean and wonderful. Everything we could ever need, was already there. Maeve kept good contact and answered every question. The house is not far from the town and only two kilometres from the beach. We liked it very much to live in a familiar surrounding with families, children and friendly dogs.
    We can recommend the rent of the house.
    Thanks a lot it was fine.

  • Maeve was great to rent from, prompt and concise replies to all my messages. Her home was really lovely and comfortable. It was ideal for my group of friends to relax and hang out after our climb up Croagh Patrick. I would happily travel back to Louisburgh again.

  • Maeve's place was easy to find and was as described! Maeve herself is a delight and communicated readily and was so friendly - I only wish we could have met in person. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others.

  • Our stay at Louisburgh was fantastic! Maeve's house was exceptional on so many levels. It was very spacious, the kitchen had everything we could possibly need and the house was also very clean. The rooms were comfortable and we all slept soundly. There are a lot of books and DVD's. There's a lot to do around Louisburgh and time passed very quickly. If weather permits you have to climb Croagh Patrick (stunning views!), there are a los of beautiful beaches and the valley to Leenane is exceptional. Free Wifi is available at the tourist information in Louisburgh (even when it's closed). To eat out we can recommend Hudson's Pantry in Louisburgh and the Tavern on the road between Louisburgh and Westport (great Seafood Chowder!)
    I will stay here again for sure!

  • The house is clean and cozy...lots of space for sleeping and relaxing very close to the town and beach....unfortunately off season the town is quite dead...must go to Westport for dinner food and shopping...
    All in all it was great!!

  • Maeve's house at Ard Caher met our needs perfectly for a week's stay. It was spacious with lots of natural light, clean, warm and well equipped. The house is well stocked with books and dvds. And best of all it was a great central location for exploring both Mayo & Connemara. There is a folder in the house with loads of information about things to do in this area. We took advantage of this and the suggestions Maeve had made in an email - climbed nearby Croagh Patrick (which can be seen from the upstairs bedroom windows), walked to a lovely beach nearby, rode bikes on the Greenway Bike Path, drove through one of the world's most beautiful valleys from Louisburgh to Leenanne, plus much, much more. If wifi is a necessity, it is easily available in several locations in the village.

Alternative education with troubled young people
Hi, I'm Maeve.I'm an outgoing easy going individual who likes to take a positive outlook on life and enjoy! I'm a busy mum to 4 children aged between 10 and 16 and work with young people unable to manage regular school. I love gardening, swimming, socialising and walking. I dearly love to travel and have holidayed in the west of Ireland for the past 12 years with my husband and children, now travelling several times a year to our summer home in Louisburgh. It's been great inviting friends and family to stay and enjoy the beautiful sites, culture, activities and just chill out.
