About this listing
Our boutique B&B is a cosy little hideaway, where you can relax and take it easy reading by the fire, or make the most of the great outdoors and take to the hills, the sea or enjoy some lovely cycling routes right on our doorstep. You decide!
Our boutique style B&B is an old country cottage with the Wild Atlantic Way passing right by our gate and in very close proximity to some beautiful beaches.
The accommodation comprises a cosy bedroom with en suite shower room. The accompanying sitting room, which is for your sole use, has a lovely stone fireplace and wood burning stove, balancing traditional charm with a modern contemporary style. You will have your own entrance and key so you can come and go as you please and this affords a lot of independence and privacy. There is also a T.V., DVD player and radio / CD.
A help yourself continental style breakfast is included in the price of your stay and is available to you in your sitting room, and to suit your own timetable.
The spectacular scenery all around us is second to none and consists of breathtaking seascapes and panoramic views of the mountains of Co Mayo, including Croagh Patrick which is only a short drive away.
Opportunities for many activities are in abundance right on our doorstep such as hillwalking, rambling, cycling, surf and rock fishing, surfing, sea kayaking, horse riding etc. most of which we have first hand experience of.
The local town of Louisburgh is host to some great pubs, cafes and restaurants, together with a supermarket, library ( with internet access ) and the Granuaile Heritage Centre.
Guests have their own private bedroom and sitting room with it's own entrance for which they will have a key. There is a lovely garden to ramble, with garden furniture for sitting outside.
Interaction with Guests
We are very happy to have lots of interaction with our guests. We live in the house so are available to answer any questions and to offer plenty of advice about the area, places to visit and eat etc.
We live in a lovely rural location with views of the mountains (including Croagh Patrick, Mweelrea and the Sheeffrey Hills) and are just a mile walk from a beautiful sandy beach, suitable for swimming, surfing and other water sports. We are on the route of the Wild Atlantic Way and are just 10km's from Silver Strand, one of the 'Discovery Points' of this spectacular drive.
Because of our remoteness, public transport is limited. There is a daily bus from Westport to Louisburgh and a train service from Dublin to Westport. Travel from Knock airport is by private car or bus.
Must have fun!
About the Host, Alex
Hi, I'm Alex,
And together with my wife, Therese, run our boutique style B&B, Venture Killeen.
We visited this area in 2001 and marvelled at it's beauty and relaxed atmosphere to such an extent that we never actually went home!
We have two young children ( 11 & 12 yrs ) and a very friendly Jack Russell. Also a garden of about an acre into which we try to encourage as much wildlife as possible.
We will look forward to welcoming you into our home and introduce you to many, many more delights that surround us here at Venture Killeen.
