Many visitors to Ireland tour the BnB/pub circuit. Stay at Peaceful Cottage and tour locally. The local ancient place name is Mochara (mu-harra) meaning stony place. The fields and farms are girded with stone walls & Mochara Castle overlooks all.

The space

This self catering cottage is in the rolling green hills of County Mayo, 18 miles from Galway and 25 miles from Westport. This is a secluded getaway for poets, writers and kindred spirits. There are bicycles in the shed and the paths of St. Patrick and ancient ways are nearby.

Please plan on a minimum of 3 days booking in order to cover costs of fuel oil and housekeeping. We will request an added charge of 12% for fuel costs unless the weather is fine and summer temperatures prevail.

The cottage has 2 comfortable bedrooms and 3 double beds, a cozy living/dining room with fireplace and TV/DVD.

The ancient castle ruins of Mochara (muharra) are very nearby and many historic castles, churches and ringfort mounds can be found in a 20 mile radius.

There are fine dining and good markets to be found in Ballinrobe and Headford, essential supplies can be had in Shrule. Lough Corrib and Ashford Castle and Cong Abbey are a few miles away, near Cong village.

So stay at home and cook some irish stew or hit the road and see the wild west of Ireland!

This Cottage is amazing for an unforgettable family memory, I am sure my family won't forget this trip and this Cottage ever. Also the location is perfect to go visit the Cliffs of Moher, Westport, Connemara, Galway, etc. Also, the Cottage has everything to make you feel at home, it's well equipped. Thanks to John and Pearce for the hospitality, you are great hosts.

Great place to stay if you have a car and want to see Galway and Connemera. We managed as far south as the Burren and as far North as Achill Island. It was a reasonable drive to get to the port to the Arran Islands as well. Anthony was a great host and even met us the first day in Headford to ensure that we coukd find our way.

Excellent value and perfect location for a quiet getaway. Kitchen is well-equipped for cooking nice meals to enjoy by the cozy fireplace. Lots of linens and dishes and glassware available. Sheep were grazing right out the windows. The owner's cousin met us at a local grocery store to lead us right to the property. He was very helpful and friendly. We definitely recommend this place.

We had a great stay at Anthony's place. Great location and our stay was made very easy. A real genuine experience. Having a car was an absolute must. Make use of the fire place or expect to be very cold but it's easy enough. Shower badly needs an update but everything else was fantastic. Highly recommend if you want to see west Ireland.

The Peaceful Cottage is a typical irisch cottage, located in a typical irisch counyry setting, amongst cows, sheep en stone hedges. Very quit en beautiful located near the lovely place Cong. The interieur is simple and a little bit outdated, but every thing you may need is present. Very thougtfull. We were warmly welcomed by Anthony's cousin Devinia and her brother, even though we arrived a little bit later as aspected. The beds slept very comfortabel and there is a very good wasching machine and dryer. Connamora is very, very beautiful, we loved it.
