The Space

This holiday house is ideal for escaping from city life to your own private woodland retreat! Just 10 mins drive from Westport, the three bedroom wooden house, set on an acre, sits nestled within mature woodlands, complete with flowing stream. It is a paradise for bird lovers. Countless birds flit between their various feeding spots, all showcased by the floor to ceiling glass windows. A wood burning stove with back boiler will keep you cosy. There are two double rooms (one en-suite) and one with two singles. There is a main bathroom downstairs. While there is a television with dvd player, regular channels are viewed via your laptop and available broadband. The house is well equipped with all mod-cons - dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, drinking water filter, gas hob and electric oven. There is a digital Roland piano at your disposal, lots of books to read, dvds to watch and boardgames to play. The house is only a short distance from the Western Way walking trail, as well as Brackloon Woods and Bertra Beach. It is only 3 miles to Westport and everything it has to offer - music sessions, great restaurants, golf, shopping, cinema, leisure centre with heated swimming pool, sauna and gym, children's playground and skateboard park. There is also horse riding, cycling, surfing, hiking, fishing, boat trips, spas and stunning beaches and scenery on your doorstep. There is a local garage around the corner where you can get basic food items, petrol and wine. The property is located in a beautiful wooded rural neighbourhood with lots of local and safe walks. Even the folks from Westport town come out here to walk. It is well positioned for trips to Leenane and Connemara as well as Galway city.

  • We had a wonderful time staying at Knappagh Snug! The house was perfect and just what we were looking for. The fire kept us nice and warm throughout the day and night and we loved looking at the sheep behind the house! Definitely recommend staying at Elaine's if you are looking for a relaxing time on the West cost! We loved it!

  • First of all: Knappagh Snug is gorgeous!!!

    We have been there for a week and it we had such a wonderful time! Everything was amazing: The location of the house, the nature around, the warm and wonderful home decoration and furnishing, the little wood next to the plot, the lovely irish birds who came daily to find some food... and Elaine made it almost perfect!!! She´s such a lovable and warm person, so much willing to give yourself the best days of your (irish) life ;-) She planned a sensational Lake-Tour for us and was also very flexibel although our arrival was later because of a flight-delay. We really enjoyed our time there and we really would love to see Elaine and Knappagh Snug again.

  • We had a great time at Elaine's place. It is a beautiful wooden house, in a wonderful setting. The house is really thought out to be in harmony with the natural surroundings. It is also an eco-friendly house. Elaine was always very reactive to our inquiries, before arrival and during the stay. The house is an excellent base for visiting the Westport and Connemarra regions. We highly recommend Elaine's place. If we had to come again, we would not hesitate to call upon Elaine!

  • Elaine has an amazing house near Westport. The house is so comfortable & beautifully designed; we just walked in, immediately relaxed & enjoyed our time spent there. It has an amazing view into the woodland. We could watch the birds flying around which was so relaxing. A quiet and peaceful place. The house has got everything you wish and an excellent kitchen. Everything was really clean.
    Elaine is such a warm, friendly and helpful person. She is the perfect host. She gave us any information we were looking for and we could reach her whenever needed.
    The House is ideal situated to discover Westport, Croagh Patrick, Connemara, and some of the Northern Parts of Ireland. We enjoyed some great walks in the area.
    We really recommend Elaine’s place for a quiet holiday near Westport. We hope to come back some time!

I'm an artist and musician living and working in Westport, Co. Mayo. I love the great outdoors and travelling. I am a member of Servas and have travelled extensively in the last 10 years - Africa, Australia, America, Canada, India and many destinations in Europe. I'm interested in music of all sorts, but especially in alt country and world music, but I'll listen to anything once it's not Irish country and western! I also love the sea, swimming and hiking, which is why I live in Westport, which has absolutely everything you could want on your doorstep. I'm also very into wild food and foraging, especially in gathering wild culinary mushrooms. Food, yoga, films, fun and friendships are also high on my priority list, as is camping and islands.....another good reason to live at Clew Bay!
