AirBnB had described this as a 'Diamond find' when we were booking - and it certainly was! We absolutely loved it! It is exactly like it is in the pictures. Perfect for a quiet few days away. The countryside setting is idyllic. The walk along the river on Mary's farm on our last morning was a real highlight. Also too was the cycle to the 'Sheebeen' on the first night on the two bikes Mary provided. This was perfect location for doing the Western Greenway. Mary is a fantastic host, full of chat and interest, and provided the lovely little extras that made this a wonderful AirBnB experience. Tricia and Tom

We loved the location of this delightful cottage, walks by the river and the cosy stove - a great base for touring the Mayo coastline.

Spent two nights, nice quiet location but also just 5 minute drive from Westport. Fire was lit on arrival and also had bread, butter, eggs and milk ready for us and chocolate sitting on the pillows. All nice touches.

We really enjoyed our stay in this great spot near Westport. It was comfy, quirky and very well equipped. Mary and Eamonn were great hosts... there were eggs, bread, chocolate and a lit fire awaiting our arrival as well as tea, coffee, milk etc. Mary was very helpful too and we took her up on two recommendations for pub/food, which we enjoyed a lot. The location is secluded (which suited us, lovely and quiet!), but you can cycle to the Sheebeen pub (which does great food) and to the sea and even to Westport town. We enjoyed a walk along the river at the farm too as well as the friendly dogs and horses :-) On our trip we rented bikes and cycled on the Greenway from Achill to Newport (which was the most scenic and easiest direction!) and stopped at Yvonne's Cottage for a break. A great day out. We very much enjoyed our stay at this place - highly recommended.

If you are looking for some peaceful time out and/or a scenic get away this is the spot. The private grounds and walk down the river are gorgeous. Then it's close by if you fancy a ramble or cycle into Westport town. We only wished that we had more time.

Mary User ProfileMary is a superhost.

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.
