Soft-pebbly beach. Horse-riding stables within half a mile. Golf & rugy clubs 1 mile away; Sailing Club 2 miles away. Weekly racing, skippers often looking for crew.

Westport town only 7 Km away. Best town in Ireland for family shops of character, variety and quality; high quality, reasonably-priced restaurants and cafes. Farm produce at weekly market. Excellent pubs, with lots of music, traditional and all varieties.The most famous Westport pub is probably Matt Molloy's, (of Chieftains fame). Or have a wonderful day in Westport House! Lots of indoor activities, including the Leisure Centre and the cinema.. All in all, the perfect place to stay!

Guest Access

Apart from the bedroom and adjacent bathroom, which is for guests' exclusive use, guests will have access to the kitchen / dining area, plus a small middle area or "sun-room".. most guests like to leave the house in the morning and return in the evening...and often to head out for a meal, or a music session a little later.. access to the sun -room is available for short--periods, but not really for day-long or other long periods... the house is too open-plan for that to work well..

Interaction with Guests

I hope I am friendly and helpful, and I have been told that I am, which is nice...and I definitely like to have some conversation with guests, but I have learned that it is not possible to be totally personally available for long conversations with all guests only because that is impossible to sustain..
If guests are using the kitchen, I like for us all to arrange times when we would like to cook.. so that guests have the kitchen to themselves for their meal and, either before or after that, I can cook separately in my own time as well..

Other Things to Note

Given enough notice, I can arrange art classes for groups of eight to ten people.. and can sort out accommodation for all.. two people in my double room and others elsewhere locally.. Classes will be given by well-known artist Breda Burns.. a great artist and a great teacher.. I know, because I've been at her (beginner!) classes!

  • It's a wonderful house with an amazing view!

    We felt very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay.
    We can definitely recommend it!

  • We had a great time at Elizabeths house - it looks amazing on the photos already but in real life with the afternoon sun coming in through the windows in the kitchen and middle room, the views on clew bay and croagh patrick were just beyond compare. Elizabeth was away by the time we arrived but everything was arranged for us and we would definitely recommend her place when searching for a fantastic location around westport!

  • Excellent place to stay in Westport. Stunning house, amazing views of the water and islands, and an incredible breakfast that included local jams/breads and much more. Elizabeth was very helpful. We had booked only a few days prior to staying here and she was able to take us in. Elizabeth went out of her way to help us access the wi-fi to e-mail friends/family back home, greeted us with tea/coffee, and we had an excellent breakfast awaiting us in the morning. I would highly recommend staying at Elizabeth's house!

  • Staying with Elizabeth at her beautiful house was a treat. The room was clean and neat and stocked with info on the area. Elizabeth gave us the run of the house, including the kitchen so we could cook for ourselves.

    We were also very pleased that she provided access to composting and recycling - not something you always see.

    If you are visiting the Westport area, do not hesitate to book with Elizabeth.

  • Staying in Elizabeth's home was magical. It is located on the outskirts of Westpot right on clew bay. The views were spectacular. Elizabeth was a wonder host, and was very helpful in recommending things to explore in her area. We enjoyed her company and had many interesting conversations around her kitchen table. Would definitely recommend staying at her home.

  • Elizabeth is a wonderful host, and true to pictures, has a stunningly beautiful home. We were very impressed by the house, room, kitchen, and of course the views of the bay and mountains. Elizabeth did a wonderful job of making us feel at home. My son loved the ocean walks and took great interest in how Elizabeth maintains her house. I would love to spent more time here but had to hit the road. Next time...

    August 2013
  • Elizabeth is an excellent host. We were very grateful to her for letting us stay after a last-minute reservation. The house is in a very remote location, but it's perfect for a get-away. Very tidy, comfortable, and well-decorated. Highly recommend!

  • Clew Bay is a special place to be, and we feel quite fortunate to have been able to do so in Elizabeth's secluded bay-side home. The room and full bathroom,were a delight, with sky-lights or roof windows that flood the room with daylight or moon shine. What a nice experience it was awaken with a view of the bay and Croagh Patrick. Elizabeth is a fine and friendly hostess, she offered us a perfect blend of helpfulness, and privacy, sharing the comfort of her abode, a fine breakfast, excellent insights into the local culture, restaurants, and activities. Staying here enriched our visit to Ireland. Thank you, Elizabeth.

About
Hi. I'm looking forward to having you to stay as a guest, but I'm not mad about too much sharing of personal information online.. I will certainly make you very welcome, and will try to make your stay in the Westport area a really memorable one.. I love all kinds of music, and really enjoy live gigs.. some of the recent gigs I was at were Ane Brun .. fantastic.., Dave Liebman, jazz saxophonist; both gigs were in Whelan's in Dublin. I was at Electric Picnic twice in the past four years, and Keith Jarrett earlier this year; I've seen Radiohead four times .. my favourite band, well,.. apart from Sigur Ros and Elbow, that is! A Motto? well., how about "the only reason we are here is to connect with other people"? or "the day I grow up is the day I know Im dead.."? See you soon!
