Interaction with Guests
The house is a holiday home and I'm quite some way away but there are people close by who will provide advice/support and deal with anything that might arise.
It overlooks beautiful Clew Bay and is within a short walk (300 metres) of the sea and a small harbour. It is at the midway point on the road between Westport and Louisburgh and provides easy access (by car) to some of Ireland's most wonderful scenery and beaches. It is a perfect base for walking, cycling or hiking holidays while golf, surfing, sailing and other water sports are all available locally. Westport, voted the best place to live in Ireland last year by readers of the Irish Times, boasts many restaurants and bars with many of the latter featuring live traditional music. Westport House operates a family park with many facilities for children while horse riding and many other activities are also available at multiple locations. Climbing Croagh Patrick is hugely popular with visitors as is exploring up and down Ireland's wonderful west coast towards Sligo in the north and Galway's Connemara further south. Along the way, towards the latter you can take in the towns where the films, the Field and Quiet Man were shot.
A car is necessary to get there and provide access to shops but the the small village of Lecanvey, which includes the landmark traditional pub, Staunton's, is around 200 metres away. The house is located on the foot of Ireland's most famous mountain, Croagh Patrick, eight miles outside the picturesque town of Westport, Co Mayo. There is a bus between Louisburgh and Westport which runs three times a day in each direction but otherwise the closest thing there is to public transport from the house is one of the taxi services based in Westport. If you intend to get about much at all then a car is necessary really.
Other Things to Note
There is generally a three night minimum stay but this is seven nights during July and August when stays are preferably Saturday to Saturday. The check in and out times really only apply where there are other guests arriving or departing on the same day. this is to allow for cleaning. I will try to accommodate guests wherever possible.
