I live in the west of Ireland and enjoy the country life. I grow all my own vegetables and herbs. I enjoy cooking and hill walking and swimming.

She has 2 bikes that are free to use. It was really nice to use the bikes to ride (a part of) the Greenway. At your self-service breakfast was freshly made Orange Juice that was delicious. Ruth lives close to downtown, easily to walk (or use the bikes). The bed was comfortable and a nice room with a lot of brochures of things to do in the area. Also there was enough parking for your car and good free WiFi. The area where Ruth lives is quiet and private.
Thank you Mark for the review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Let me know if you are back in the area again. All the best. Ruth
I had great time staying with Ruth, she is very welcoming and kind. She gave lots good advise abOut visiting Co. Mayo.I had the double room, it's very comfortable. It's a nice closy Irish house. Location is about 25 minutes walk to Westport city centre, but there is free bike provided if you fancy cycling.
Thank you Fay for the review. Well done again on making it up Croagh Patrick. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. Ruth.
My host Ruth emailed me before the visit to check on my plans and give me accurate directions information. The accommodation was very comfortable and spotless. The neighbourhood was very quiet with a glorious view of Croagh Patrick from my window.
Ruth is a lady. I will return to her home whenever I am in Westport. It's ideally located for convience, but quiet for a good night's sleep. I was made to feel completely at home. I definitely recommend staying here.
Ruth was extremely welcoming, courteous and an excellent host who even met me off the train. The single room is extremely comfortable with ample storage room and a cosy bed. The house is easily accessible as it is only a ten minute walk from the town centre. The house is also located beside the greenway which you can use to walk/cycle into town or to go to the Westport Quay. In summary, another enjoyable airbnb experience.
Thank you Declan for the review, I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. All the best, Ruth
This was our second stay with Ruth. Ruth's place is very charming. The welcoming fire and hot tea was delightful. The upgraded bathroom is very well done. We loved the fresh squeezed orange juice. Ruth is very accommodating and knows everything about the area, a great resource. We will be back again.
Thank you Dan and Kathy for the review. I am looking forward to your visit next year!!
The host was very welcoming. The room was very good. The sitting room was warm and pleasant with a newly lit fire each evening. A very generous uncooked breakfast was provided. The immediate local area was functional with easy access to all the major driving/cycling routes in Mayo.
Thank you Eillish for the review. I hope to see you back in Mayo someday. Ruth
This is my first time to use AirBnB. My stay with Ruth was like home from home. Place was spotless and room was perfect and as per photograph. Loved being able to access cooking facilities. As a solo traveller I particularly appreciated having a single room and not having to pay a supplement. Location was ideal for me, close to a walk/cycle path which was 6 minute walk from Quay's and perhaps 10 minutes to town centre on the flat. Breakfast you make yourself and are encouraged to help yourself to from a wide range of cereals,which is supplied along with bread, eggs and fruit. There was even a small bottle of water and a bar of chocolate supplied in the bedroom. I may be back in Westport later on in the summer and if so will be looking to stay with Ruth if she has a room available.
Thank you Grainne for the review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I also travel solo at times and I get fed up having to pay double so I wanted to provide a room for solo travellers without a supplement. Ruth.
Ruth made me feel very welcome in her home. Lovely view from the bedroom of 'the reek' and it was great to be able to use the kitchen in the evening if you didn't want to venture out. Ruth also provides a bike free of charge which is a great perk as its a lovely area to cycle. Had a georgeous afternoon out to the reek on the bike which I would defiantly recommend. Very nice stay.
Thanks Cate for your review, it was lovely to have you to stay.
Do you like waking up to a gorgeous looming mountain? Sitting near the warmth of a fire place after a day of roaming about? Enjoy quick banter with a knowledgeable local?
Look No Further!
The bests about this cozy spot (in the following order):
(1) The host Ruth is lovely - knowledgeable too
(2) The location is 10 min walk to the town center and 10 min walk to the waterfront Quay
(3) Waking up to beautiful landscape in your very own backyard (the Old Railway Path, Cro'Patrick)
(4) Super clean home: bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms are all clean and cozy
(5) Great reads on Irish legends, poetry, fiction, walking paths and non-fiction on Ruth's bookshelves ... (3) is tied with (5)
In the interest not gushing on further - This place is like home... and precious few places in the world are.
Hello there Sharon, thank you for the review and I hope the gloves arrive soon. It was a pleasure to have you to stay. Ruth.
Thanks to Airbnb to give me possibility to know
special person like Ruth; She is so nice and kind and sunny person
It was a pleasure to meet and to talk with her.
Very funny moments during her stay.
I highly recommend Ruth , i think she is a super guest and super host
Thank you Beniamino, you made my stay great and I would highly recommend staying at your place.
Ruth is a fantastic person we recommend anyone to host. Me, my husband and my kids had the opportunity to spend some time with her and definitely all of us gained something of value from this experience!
Furthermore I had the opportunity to share with her my experience both as host and guest through Airbnb in this way learning new and very interesting things!
Thank you all very much for the wonderful visit and thank the girls for all their lovely company. I would highly recommend staying at your place.
Ruth is a nice and perfect guest to host.
Beautiful to talk to her.
Ruth Bradshaw and her friend Phyllis are charming people. As my first guests from Airbnb Ruth(an Airbnb veteran) was very generous with her advice and suggestions on how to make the best of my property. They left the house in great condition. They are assured of a great welcome should they decide to return in the future. Michael Quirke
Thanks Michael, we will be back and the best of luck with your Airbnb
Ruth and her family are the perfect guests to host. They are clean, tidy, easy going and totally respectful with the house rules. They are very nice people and I absolutely recommend to host them! I would definitely host them again!
Thank you Clara, I forgot to mention that we really appreciated the fact that you came so early to facilitate an early check in. Thanks again for having us. Ruth and family.
I picked up you from the airport withouth additional cost because you didn´t rent a car and it was a pity for me you had to get two buses to arrive to the apartment. You looked liked a very nice person, oh what lovely apartment you said. You booked the apartment only for you, and I had to trust the friend who came with you only was going to stay one night, so you only paid me that first night. How you stayed twice in my apartment, first three days and then a week I asked you to write 2 reviews because airbnb sends 2 reviews, and you told you prefered to write only one because you didn´t like to write the same twice. I wrote you kindly, because I thought you was a kind person, giving you the idea of writing 2 reviews, one talking about my and the apartment and other talking about the nearby, and your answer was a HORRIBLE SURPRISE FOR ME: because you told Don´t write me more asking me a review a telling me how I have to do it, I have enough with the messages of Airbnb remembering me.
In my opinion you haven't been so friendly with me like I have been with you.
Ruth is a charming woman, very expressive and communicative. She is the type of guest that makes me feel well, because if I know at the check in, that the guest is satisfied with the apartment, it makes me feel very happy.
In addition she was really kind and understanding because she lefts the apartment before her checking out time, because she knews I had a check in the same day.
Ruth and Phyllis were a joy to have! They arrived on time, were extremely friendly and left the place spotless! We had a great night out back in Allihies at a Frances Black concert. Hope you come back again
Ruth and Phyllis arrived on schedule within 3 hours of booking! They seemed to thoroughly enjoy the peace and tranquility of our cottage and had great weather during their stay.
Ruth was a lovely guest.
