We had a nice stay. We loved the outside area and fire place. It's secluded, but still close to Westport. Mary is a great host who makes sure you get what you need.

Great quirky and cosy cottage, a really unique experience staying there. Mary was a great host, a warm welcome and there if you needed anything. Would recommend this air b & b if you're after something a bit different.

Mary's house is located in a beautiful part of Ireland, in driving distance to many spots of natural beauty. The guest cottage is situated not far from Mary's house, with lovely gardens surrounding and a rushing river (when it rains) right on the land. The cottage is modestly but adequately outfitted, with a wood-burning stove. It's just outside Westport, a charming town, and the drive to the house is very sweet. Friendly dogs greet you when you arrive. Mary was extremely helpful in making suggestions for nearby places of interest, both outdoor excursions and museums and castles. We really enjoyed our stay at Mary's and in the area of County Mayo.

Mary and Eamon have done a perfect job of creating a comfortable, authentic rural idyll. Their land, river and 3 adorable dogs are almost too perfect. The cottage itself is simple, cozy and warm but spacious. We thoroughly appreciated the huge bed. Often beds labeled "king" in Airbnb are actually American sized doubles. Theirs is the real thing. They are both truly interesting people and suggestions for food and touring perfect. We would love to come back for a longer stay and really see the west

We enjoyed our (EMAIL HIDDEN)fortable and warm just note that you need to be agile to get into bed - it's a tight squeeze firm hard bed. Ensure you get good directions!

Lovely peaceful location, nice to sit by the river, enjoy the fire and play with the dogs! Mary was fab! Great spot for visiting Westport and accessing local walks, recommend Croagh Patrick and Achill Island.

I am a musician, I'm from Belfast and I moved to the West of Ireland recently. I love my music and love performing at various functions and concerts.
I love the outdoor life which includes attempts at running every morning through the beautiful local woodlands here. Also short rows on the nearby river, trampolining, sailing and swimming in the sea with my two lovely girls. I sought the quiet life after a hectic city lifestyle and found this dream home.
This location is a perfect silent and friendly place to travel from and explore all outdoor pursuits.
