Tidy up:
Please leave the property in the exact same way as you found it - and with all furniture in the garden and the same positions and rooms within the house where you found them on your arrival.

Please ensure the oven, hob and fridges are cleaned and emptied of all food and spills on your departure. All dishes must be cleaned, dried and put away on your departure. If there is one last load in the dishwasher, please leave it on a wash before your departure.

Please ensure the Barbeque is clean and the area around it is tidy and left in a state you would like to find it.

Failure to do so may result in an additional charge for extra cleaning.

If you require an additional clean during your stay, please let us know in advance and we will be happy to make the necessary arrangements.

Please place all rubbish in the wheelie bins provided at the house. One is for landfill rubbish, one is for recycling.

Please ensure anything that can be recycled is washed and recycled. This includes all plastic bottles, tin cans, aluminium, tin foil, cardboard, magazines, newspapers, recyclable plastic and cardboard boxes placed in the recycling bin are squashed and flattened. If found in the landfill waste, we will be fined, and will unfortunately have to pass this onto yourselves following your stay.

The bins are emptied every other week and will be emptied on Wednesday mornings, if either are too full, then please let our Caretaker Neil, know well in advance.

It is VITAL that you use these recycled and landfill bins appropriately as we may be fined for incorrect waste being in the wrong bin. If we are fined, we will pass this charge onto you after your stay.

There are two bins inside the house, 1 for landfill waste and 1 for recycled waste to help you with the sorting. Do not leave any rubbish around the house inside or out and ensure all ash from the fire and the Barbeque are disposed of in bags and placed in the bins provided when cold.

DO NOT FLUSH BABY WIPES, FACIAL WIPES, SANITARY TOWELS, KITCHEN ROLL or NAPPIES down the toilet - you can use the bins provided for these in the toilets. Only flush toilet roll please.

Please note: the downstairs ensuite toilet has a soft close lid. Do not force the lid to close - let it gently close itself. If this is broken during your stay, the cost of a new one will be deducted from your deposit.

Please note: The shower in the ensuite downstairs and the large ensuite upstairs need hot water supplied heated by the immersion heater or supplied from water heated while the central heating is turned on. They are not electric showers so won't heat the water automatically like the smallest ensuite shower upstairs does.

Also note the water temperature in the downstairs shower changes slowly so allow a couple of minutes for the water to change temperature before stepping into the shower.

Wonderful location and lovely home. Very clean and tidy. Áine is a thoughtful and attentive host. Very family friendly. We traveled from the States with a 6 year old and infant. Westport is a great town and the views of Croagh Patrick from the house are picturesque. Only minor consideration is that you can hear everything everywhere in the house. Would definitely recommend and we're very grateful for Áine's hospitality.

Absolutely beautiful property and home. Very convenient location if spending time in Westport. We made use of the many beds, outdoor swing, baby bathtub and cribs (a wooden crib and a portable crib), washer and dryer, and large kitchen table. Just a note - the floors, while beautiful, were creaky. Those sleeping downstairs are likely to hear others walking upstairs. Very much enjoyed our time in this home, especially with a cup of coffee looking out the large open windows at the gorgeous view.

Great house in a lovely setting. Large spacious living room and kitchen, and bedrooms all a good size too. House well kitted out and host was great with directions, etc. Westport only a few mins away with plenty of good pubs and restaurants.

We had a great stay at Oakleaf Cottage. Aine's communication was great throughout the whole process, and everything was ready and waiting for us just as she said. The house is beautiful, clean and comfortable, with a nice big kitchen and dining table. The bedrooms were also spacious, clean, and comfortable, with en suites for each. Its located only a few minute drive outside of Westport, with great views of Croagh Patrick and the lush green Mayo hills. We'll stay here again next time we visit!

I just love Oakleaf Cottage, Westport, Co Mayo - it's a real luxury 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?!
