About this listing
Our beautiful cedar clad eco home is situated in the rugged countryside only 2 miles from Westport. The house boasts of large, sunlit rooms and ample space alongside unsurpassed views of Croagh Patrick and the open moorland beyond the house.
A beautiful cedar clad newly built four bedroom house is available with stunning views of Crough Patrick and the Partry Hills in West Mayo.
The house has four lovely light filled bedrooms, three of which come with comfortable double beds and one with a single bed (there is also a travel cot and fold out single futon bed in the living room), a bright and spacious modern kitchen, dinning area, cosy sitting room with fireplace, library and two modern bathrooms (one with solar hot water and one with electric hot water), there is also a large double bath in one of the bathrooms. There is decking to the south of the house with beautiful views (accessed via the french doors in the dining room).
There is also a laundry room with drying racks and an outdoor line. The dining room has a wood fired rayburn stove and there is also a small wood stove in the living room.
It benefits from breath taking views of rugged, unspoilt and undeveloped countryside and is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
The house is located not far from the heritage town of Westport. The picturesque town is known as one of Irelands best kept towns and is one of its major tourist destinations. The town boasts plenty of great restaurants and traditional Irish pubs with live music, a cinema, swimming pool, supermarkets, shops, etc. There is also a Zoo and small theme park at Westport House.
Within driving distance from here you will find many beautiful safe sandy beaches on the North and south shores of Clew Bay, many of which have been accredited with a blue flag award. You will also find the famous mountain of Croagh Patrick located nearby.
The house is just an hours drive to Galway and Knock International Airport. There is no better place to stay when exploring Irelands magical west coast line.

The guests have access to the whole house and the surrounding grounds.
Interaction with Guests
Our lovely neighbour Trish looks after the house and will be the one who visits guests after their arrival. She will be there to answer any questions guests may have about the house and amenities and activities in the local area.
'House Rules' sound a little stern, rather we would request that all guests consider the following during their stay in our lovely eco home:
As an eco house we ask all guests to strive to be as environmentally responsible as possible during their stay. This includes cleaning and sorting any recyclable rubbish guests may generate (appropriate bins and guidelines are provided), making sure lights and heating are turned off when not required.
We have a 'shoes off' policy whilst in the house and we have provided an assortment of slippers for those who want them.
We ask guests to strip the bedding (not the mattress and pillow protectors unless necessary) and leave them along with used towels next to the washing machine before checking out. This is very helpful for our lovely neighbour who cleans and readies the house for the next guests and is much appreciated.
Most of all we ask guests to kick back, relax and enjoy the house, its unsurpassed views and its wild surroundings and have a blast.
We loved staying at your beautiful home! The views from every room were spectacular and the house was very spacious and cozy. The hosts and their lovely neighbor, Trish, made us feel very welcome. Thank you so much for sharing your home. We hope to back soon!
We had a fantastic time at the house. Exactly what we read on the description and reviews. So much space, the wood burner was on for us on arrival and a loaf of soda bread ready to dig into.
Trish our host was super helpful. We were only here for a weekend, so would love to come back and stay longer. Loved the books laid out in each room. didn't need wifi with all those books and the constantly changing skies outside the big windows. Westport is a lovely town and a short drive away, great for seeing some live music 'sessions' Such a lovely peaceful home to stay in.
La maison du bout du monde, totalement conforme à nos attentes.
GPS obligatoire.... Accueil et accompagnement chaleureux par Trish
Au portes du Connemara.
Beautiful house in a quiet peaceful area with amazing views of Croke Patrick that's still only a few mins into Westport. Were given a lovely welcome and everything listed on the airbnb page was there as described. Would highly recommend!
7 of us stayed in Malachy and Dewi's house last weekend and we cannot recommend them enough. The description of the house was accurate, the house itself was fantastic and we loved the fact that the whole house was eco friendly. In the house there was descriptions of how everything worked which was great and Trish who met us was extremely kind and helpful. Malachy and Dewi themselves were very fast to respond and very helpful over email even when we had to make a few adjustments to the booking.
The house is in a great location outside Wesport town but only by about 5mins drive so it was perfect to have the silence of the countryside but only a short drive to the lovely town of Westport. I would definitely recommend this house for anyone visiting Westport and we will be sure to book again if we are back there.
A very comfortable, well built insulated house and very well serviced. Such a pleasant quiet place to wake up to in the morning and yet so close to Westport. A great large table for eating around and a lovely deck to admire the view of the rolling green landscape including a great view of Croagh Patrick mountain. Trish was very welcoming and pleasant. Our baby loved the space and friendly wooden floors in the house to explore. Response from owners with queries was very quick.
The house was great and suited our family group perfectly. There was plenty of space for everryone. It was in a lovely spot just out of Westport with some wonderful views. We were warmly welcomed by the host's neighbour and we settled in very well there.
About the Host, Malachy, Dewi And Family
Dewi and I are brothers who look after the running of the house on AirBnB. We look after the running for our mum, Debbie.
Mum had the house built as a family home. She planned to live here when it was finished but as most of her children ended up in the UK she decided to live closer to her children and grandsons in Pembrokeshire, Wales. She is so happy that she can share her beautiful home with amazing guests from all over the world and we are all humbled at the positive responses to the house and the area we've had from our guests.
The house was built by our lovely neighbours Willy and Gerard. They are brothers who specialise in wooden frame, environmentally sustainable construction and great friends of ours.
Trish, Willy's wife and one of mums closest friends is our amazing host and she's organises the house for guests and pops in to introduce herself and answer any questions and provides great suggestions on the local area. She lives just a couple of minutes walk away in another beautiful wooden house and is the star of the AirBnB experience. She is amazed at how great and considerate all our wonderful guests have been and she's made many friends along the way.
