“A lovely holiday!”
Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My husband and dog stayed in Cregan Cottage earlier this month and it was a wonderful retreat. We took spare blankets to cover their couch and chairs so that little Zola (the dog) didn't leave paw prints every where and she loved it there! We felt so safe and relaxed, coming from Galway City centre it was great to be able to sit in the evening with the back door and front door open letting the dog potter around the lovely gardens to her hearts content. Daisy the donkey was great company, we fed her a carrot every day and each morning she'd potter up to the fence to greet us :o)
The local shops were approx a 10 minute drive and we were within very easy reach of Castlerbar, Foxford, Westport, Ballina and the Achill Islands.
The stove in the lounge helped to make our evenings very cosy and the bbq set out the back gave us additional eating options if the evenings were mild.
The house was very clean, with plenty of bedding and towels. The bathroom is very new with a great power shower and the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable with a window view over the front garden. in the morning I would read in bed and look over and see Daisy the donkey pottering in her field.
We will definately go back one day, lots of fond memories are held there!
Lou and Zola (and the husband)

“Exceptional Standard!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Cannot recommend this property enough. Absolutely picturesque surroundings, including luxury landscaped gardens front and back.
Interior to a high stand, very clean and user friendly - including tv with hdmi
On arrival met by very nice and friendly owner, with milk, butter, tea and coffee ..and homemade scones to boot!
Lots to do in the local areas (Castlebar, Westport etc) or perfect place just to relax and escape.
Will definitely be back!

“Picture postcard cottage, a credit to the owners”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Just back from a lovely break at Cregan Cottage. A beautiful little cottage in rural setting in County Mayo. It is picture postcard perfect!! Great if you want to get away from it all but love a little bit of luxury too. The cottage is beautiful with all mod cons. Totally secluded but just a short drive from some of Mayo's lovely villages and beaches. We travelled with 2 teenage boys (13, 17) and our dog. The boys were instantly smitten by the donkey at the bottom of the garden and we found plenty of activities such as surfing, swimming and tree adventures within a short drive. We had dinner and a show in Hotel Westport and ate twice in The Gateway Hotel, Swinford. Foxford Mill is well worth a visit too. The cottage is a credit to Margaret & Brendan!
