Wow, what a cottage! Big open sitting,dining & kitchen area perfect to be sociable. Bedrooms were good sizes and had x4 beds in two & one double. Two showers & two more toilets were very useful. The beds were super comfy & the kitchen was very well equipped. The house suited the change in weather & the views were amazing. We felt remote but with Westport only a 5min drive. Unfortunately it's not walkable due to the busy road & no path but reliable taxi services. The fire made it homely on a rainy night & the tv had sky. No wifi but a blessing on holiday I feel. Host was easily contactable, and had someone come meet us for check in.
We had a fantastic time and loved the house, very convenient location, only 2 miles from Westport. The house had everything we needed and kitchen was really well stocked! We will definitely come back! Thanks
Would recommend Oakleaf Cottage to anyone, great views and clean and spacious inside, and just a five minute drive to lively Westport. Did not get chance to meet Aine, but we did talk on the phone,and she seemed really pleasant . Would definitely come back here.
I just love Oakleaf Cottage, Westport, Co Mayo - it's a real home from home with extra comfort, warmth, and fabulous views of Croagh Patrick and the surrounding countryside. The house is large and so relaxing for a large group of guests with loads of room for everyone of every age. Kids have plenty of room outside to play ball, games and on their bikes. I love Oakleaf Cottage for the scenery and the fresh air [sometimes you can smell the sea from Clew Bay] and also because there's loads to do to suit all ages and abilities close by: cycling, mountain climbing, river and sea fishing, walking, surfing, cinema, skateboard park, horse-riding, Adventure Sports, Spas, great restaurants, pubs, lively nightlife, sightseeing and loads more...we always leave a bottle of wine and chocolates and a bale of fuel for the open fire to welcome our guests in, so why not come along and see for yourself?!
