The space

Castlebar is situated on the West Coast of Ireland. We are the county town of Mayo. The Wild Atlantic Way route is less than 15 miles from Castlebar (Westport) We are 45 minutes from Ireland West Airport. There is a population of 8,000 (approx)

Guest access

The guests will have access to the whole living space including full use of the kitchen. Should you wish to cook I'll be happy to offer you a specific area in the fridge etc. will be made available. There is no extra charge for cooking or food storage. The premises is a typical 3 bed roomed semi-detached family home. Regretfully I don't have a shower facility in the public bathroom but will provide an ample supply of hot water. I also provide a guest room key and house key during your stay. I live alone.

Interaction with guests

I work as a restaurant manager and only intend making the room available on days that I work. Therefore I'm happy if guests decide just to have a relaxing day lounging around the house if they decide to do so. When at home I work on-line as a golf blogger and social media commentator.

The neighborhood

I live on a street which is the entrance to a small housing development. I can guarantee a very quite experience should you decide to stay with me. I'm very lucky with my neighbours and feel that they will be an addition to your visit should you bump into them.

Getting around

Castlebar is a relatively small town. My house is within walking distance of the town centre. There is a poor bus service from Castlebar to surrounding areas. Should you decide not to hire a car, I will be as helpful as possible in helping you get around.

Other things to note

I've noticed one 4 star comment about the location of my home but hope that my profile and guest list clearly shows the exact experience you will receive if you stopover in Castlebar.

Your Host



Castlebar, Ireland · Joined in June 2014

I am a restaurant manager with an absolute passion for golf. Very active on social media during the golfing season. Host the The Golf Show on IRISHTV and also write a weekly golf column in the Connacht Telegraph.

I started working in the tourist industry after I left school and am looking forward to welcoming people to the West of Ireland. I'm a real front of house type of person and signing up with Airbnb as a host is probably the ideal job for me.

My friends tell me that I'm very laid back and a real people person. I'm interested in most sports, enjoy world politics and current affairs and spend a majority of my time on social media getting the message out there about how wonderful a trip to Ireland can be.
