The space

Modern, architect-designed house, (designed to resemble a small cluster of traditional houses and to blend with the landscape). Bright & airy 3-bedroom house; There is one double bedroom available. Easy access to shore..., only a few yards from the house. Adjacent bathroom, w power-shower. Wifi, ample parking. Stays of over one week's duration by special arrangement only..

Stunning views, almost 360 degrees..Facing south across the waters of Clew Bay to Croagh Patrick, south-west to Old Head and further west to Clare Island; Right on the shore of Clew Bay, sea-swimming directly from the house. 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. Wonderful walking trails, and a wide variety of cycle paths right on the doorstep. Westport's famous Greenway only 5 Km away, towards town.. Cycle from the house or from Westport all the way to Achill on a cycle path!

Westport was recently awarded accolade of "Best Place to Live in Ireland". Perfect location for exploring North and South Mayo & Connemara. Ideal for those attending outdoor challenge events, eg Gaelforce West, Sea2Summit , etc. Eventeers welcome!

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

It's a fundamental ethic for me, that guests of any culture or nationality, and of any religion or none are all equally welcome in my house(URL HIDDEN)Apart from the bedroom and adjacent bathroom, which is for guests' exclusive use, guests will have access, by arrangement, 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, (by prior arrangement), 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!

Please do not leave Velux windows open in bedroom and bathroom , a) when you are not in the room, and b) overnight.. This is because rain can start suddenly and can fall quite heavily without warning and falls straight onto the floor; It will soak and damage the floorboards very quickly.

Generally, I am there during guests' stays, though sometimes I might be away.. If you wish to have the house to yourselves, that can be arranged, and we can come to an agreement regarding costs.. Flexibility is key! :)

All readers need to know is that after only a four-day stay in Elizabeth's spectacular home and in her riveting and engaging company, we've just returned to a frenetic London properly recharged and relaxed and ready for the (next) fray. It really is a special place. As is Westport itself. It's people couldn't have been more welcoming or generous with their time, tips and chat. We will be back...

Beautiful house in a spectacular quiet setting only 15 mins from Westport. The host Elizabeth made us feel very welcome. The room is large with lovely views and our private bathroom was next door. Elizabeth gave us the key so we could come and go as we pleased. Breakfast is set up for you and you help yourself. She kindly bought gluten free products for my daughter. Would definitely recommend this if you like a quiet place to stay but still not far from the bustle of Westport.

Beautiful location. Very uncomfortable bed which is the only downside. Also a lot of rules for an airbnb for us. Didn't matter much bc we were there a lot but it was just uncomfortable.

Response from Elizabeth:
Hi Melissa, I am very disappointed to learn that you found the bed uncomfortable, particularly when I asked had ye slept well, you said you had. I was also disappointed that ye gave no indication of any such difficulty throughout the two days of your stay; rather you seemed to be very pleased with the accommodation. As regards the bed, your finding it uncomfortable is both disappointing and surprising as it is a high quality queen size bed, in good condition, with a high quality and slightly firm mattress (not an orthopaedic mattress, but not soft / sagging); all previous guests, including friends and relatives who stay over, have either spontaneously commented on how comfortable it is, or, when asked, have strongly indicated they found it very comfortable. I am not sure which rules you found excessive; the few requested are clearly stated on the site, and are clearly visible prior to booking; I would have been happy to discuss with ye during your stay, any rules you found excessive and would have appreciated any feedback given directly.

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 books, theatre and all kinds of music, and really enjoy live gigs.. Music is very important to me....Some of the recent gigs I was at were Ane Brun, Philip Glass,Keith Jarrett, Tomasz Stanko, Dave Liebman; I've been to Electric Picnic a number of times; I've seen Radiohead five times .. my favourite band.., well, apart from Beck, 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 I'm dead.."? See you soon!
