From the moment I first enquired about this property, I had the feeling that Marian would be a delightful host. I was not disappointed. Marian quickly responded to each of my emails and remained in regular contact prior to my arrival. Her communication was superb. When I arranged to pick up a rental car at nearby Ireland West Airport, Marian offered to meet me at the Airport to show me the way to the house. She greeted me with a warm and welcoming smile and I immediately felt at home.
As for the house, it became my secluded and cozy country home away from home. It was a perfect location for me to do family tree research and catch up with nearby relatives. Marian had stocked the refrigerator and cupboard with breakfast and dinner treats, homemade brown bread, fruit cake, scones, muffins and jam. I was delighted! Marian and her husband, Jimmy, kept me well stocked with wood and coal for the fireplace. A perfect way to end every day – curled up on the sofa with a warm fire and indulging in a good book. Have I gone to heaven I asked myself every day?
The house is very secluded and well off the beaten path. Guests will need to have a car. However, you’ll be less than 5 minutes from the N17 so getting to and fro will be no problem. Five minutes away is the town of Kilkelly where you can pick up groceries at Tarpey’s. If you want more “supermarket-style” shopping, take the N17 to Knock. You’ll be ideally located to visit other Mayo sites by car. Westport is just an hour away, Achill Island a bit further on. If you’re in need of gifts to bring home, head over to nearby Foxford to visit the woolen mill.
If what you desire is an authentic West of Ireland country experience, this is the location for you. The house is spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished and equipped with satellite TV. Marian and Jimmy have thoughtfully stocked the book case with books, jigsaw puzzles and DVDs. You can enjoy your meals in a kitchen equipped with all the “mod-cons” and gaze out the picture window to the fields behind the property. The view from the rear of the house is spectacular. At night, you’ll see stars like you’ve never seen before.
I can’t say enough about this property and Marian and Jimmy. I felt so at home. I wish I could have stayed forever. I hope every guest enjoys this house as much as I did.
This is an exceptionally spacious house. The host is extremely helpful and approachable. We had a wonderful experience living in the clean house which has absolutely everything for a cozy stay.
The only thing worth mentioning is: this house is situated in a farm area which has little public transport. You'll have to drive (your own car or rental) in order to enjoy the otherwise unmissable farm living experience.
It was lovely to meet you and your parents Victor delighted you found our house up to your expectations !!
