The neighborhood

If you are looking for a peaceful totally relaxed environment in Co Mayo, West of Ireland, with its natural beauty, stunning views and pure air, this is it! It is the home to many artists and when you see the light and dramatic scenery you will see why. The Wild Atlantic way trail includes Louisburgh.
We are within walking distance to the town (1.5km) with its one supermarket and several pubs ! Also a mobile fish van twice a week and a once weekly local sale of eggs preserves and breads.
There is a small tourist shop and information centre( summer) , a small hotel and coffee shop ( summer ) a cafe , and 4 restaurants . Louisburgh hosts several festivals including traditional music.
The local beaches are lovely with white sand and swimming is safe although cold! It's famed for its surfing and pier jumping.
Galway is an easy day trip away and the pretty town of Westport is 30 minutes away.
There are many lovely walks and cycle rides . Bikes can be hired and fishing kayaking and horse riding trips can also be arranged . In the Summer there are local foraging walks. We are only 1.5km from Louisburgh Town which has been recently refurbished to take full advantage of its exceptional views of the Atlantic Ocean and the islands which form the entrance to Clew Bay. The countryside is ideal for walkers, anglers , cyclists and climbers but is also wonderful for simple downtime and relaxation.
