Brendan was a wonderful host. The space was exactly as described. He was a wealth of information on all things Westport. He even drove us to the bus depot when we left. A bonus.
Brendan und seine Familie sind wundervolle Gastgeber. Er hat uns vom Bahnhof abgeholt und wir haben uns sehr "zuhause"gefühlt. Die Unterkunft ist der Wahnsinn, die Aussicht ist traumhaft. Er hat uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen.Alles war super sauber und man hatte alles was man benötigt in der Unterkunft. Zur Begrüßung gab es irische Butter, Brot und Obst. Viele Tips haben wir bekommen von Brendan. Wir können jeden nur empfehlen:fahrt nach Westport und bucht bei Brendan...Ihr wollt nicht mehr weg..In die Stadt läuft man gemütlich ca. 15 Minuten und Westport ist zauberhaft. Wer Irland pur geniessen möchte: Brendan und seine Familie und Westport. Brendan? We will come back :-) Thank you so much :-)
We had a great time in Westport and Brendan's place was the perfect base to explore. The room had everything we needed, as well as luxuries of comfy bed, fluffy towels and HD telly! (& fruit bread left for us by the host!). Brendan had the perfect balance of being super helpful when needed and leaving us to it. The room being separate from the main house allowed us to come and go as we pleased but also enjoy some nice chats. We would definitely come back to Westport and would certainly stay with Brendan again.
It's hard to find words to say how wonderful Brendan was ... How we loved him immediately, how warm, welcoming, responsive, hospitable, and down to earth he was from the first moment we met him until we had to leave his wonderful spot in Westport! The loft is exactly as pictured: spotlessly clean, comfortable, cozy, great bed, nice kitchenette, great view. Brendan thought of everything, supplying the loft with delicious brown bread, fresh fruit, a microwave, small fridge, electric kettle, tea/coffee, etc. (and there are several grocers nearby). It's a beautiful walk along the Greenway into town (& you pick up the Greenway right around the corner)... Plus the pub/shopping area along the quay (just a block or so from the loft) is great as well. My husband and I loved having our own private space in the loft, but with a caring host who actually checked in to make sure we were happy along the way.
Brendan felt like an old friend! He extended every possible kindness and consideration to make us truly feel at home. He good-naturedly went above and beyond, in so many unexpected, thoughtful ways. Brendan and his family have a little piece of paradise at their door and we are lucky they're so willing to share it!
This could easily be a place to stay for a week or more, as there's much to do in the area and it's a fine launching point from which to explore. Brendan's loft had absolutely everything we needed to make a fabulous stay, the nicest host ever, a town full of welcoming folks, and some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Ireland all within an easy drive.
We met the most wonderful people in Westport and even extended our time there by a full night/day because Co. Mayo captivated us so completely! My husband and I hated to leave and can't wait to return. I know we've used the word "wonderful" 3x already, but our time at Brendan's truly was. He is an amazing host, offering a gem of a place to stay. Go and you will see for yourself!! Keep the windows cracked and you can even hear the water burbling outside your door!
We were welcomed by Brendan, who showed us to our accommodation and showed us how everything worked. He is a very welcoming pleasant guy. He made us feel very welcome and advised on where to eat in the area. He contacted me the day before by phone to make sure that i knew how to get there.
The accommodation was very clean and tidy, there was fresh fruit, bread, butter, milk, tea and coffee. The TV had a lot of channels with good reception. There is also wireless internet in the room, which was pleasantly quite fast.
I would highly recommend this place.
This loft was perfect for 2 people and in a great location... Very near the harbour... Brendan and his family were lovely and were very accommodating... Although the loft is at the rear of the home it was not an issue... We were given full privacy to come and go as we pleased... Would highly recommend this accommodation!!
I had a great time at Brendan's place. The loft looks exactly as it does in the picture and was spotlessly clean. The bed and pillows were really comfortable and lovely soft towels were provided. Brendan also left lovely bread, fruit and milk for breakfast. The location is right on the bay with pubs and restaurants a minutes walk away. I would recommend Brendan's place to any of my friends.
I traveled with two bikes by train with my boyfriend Rob for the 45km cycle form Westport to Achill along the greenway and found that Wesport is a place to return to for its great cycling infrastructure, village atmosphere, landscapes and specially the friendly people.
The place is exactly as it is described and photographed. The location next to the greenway makes it an ideal location to stay if you're visiting the region.
Brendan is a great host, he called us to gave us directions to make sure we wouldn't get lost once we arrived in Westport.
The small things that Brendan and his family provide for the guests such as recommendations in town and around the area, big towels, fruit, milk, tea, butter, cheese make the experience feel like home away from home. At the same time, they make sure they explain everything one needs to know about town and the loft so you can feel extra privacy within their own property.
Westport is a great location fit for all ages with incredible views and vast landscapes to explore by foot or bike.
I would highly recommend contacting Brendan without hesitation on your next trip, you can expect to have a great experience no matter what the weather is.
It was really great to stay at brendans loft. The loft was absolutely like it described at the pictures and very clean. Brendan and his whole family were wonderful hosts and gave us many insider tips, so that we had seen the best places in the near of Westport. It was near located at Town, but also rurally. We can just recommend to stay at brendans loft!
Brendan's detached above-garage apartment was PERFECT! It was very clean, very nicely decorated, and incredibly comfortable, with everything one needs. Brendan had milk in the fridge, fabulous Irish bread and butter, tea, and coffee to get me started. The bed was very cozy and really comfortable; and the shower water was hot with a strong stream. There was a nice big flat screen TV with many channels, a hair dryer, books, etc...I felt pampered and very safe. The apartment has a beautiful outlook to the local mountain, and was in really close proximity to amenities as a store, great pubs, boutiques, and a walking/running trail. I was lucky to meet his wonderful family, and hated to leave them. A very enjoyable stay; I want to go back already! Highly recommended. Thanks Brendan and family!
