Fantastic spacious cottage just outside Ballintubber, near Westport. Scenery amazing. Absolutely perfect in every way. Looking forward to going back
A fab stay in a beautiful home. Our two families had a blissful stay, a great house with plenty of facilities and space outside for the kids to play and to enjoy the best Easter Egg Hunt ever! Both Karla and Maura were very helpful in getting us orientated and for answering any questions we had. Feeding the neighbouring donkeys was also a highlight for the kids. Thank you!
I chose this home because it was near my cousins. It worked out perfectly! The caretaker, Maura, met us in town so we could follow her to the house. She gave us a simple and thorough tour and was kind enough to give us some ideas of what to do in the area. It accommodated 10 adults without any difficulty and everyone loved the house. It has both American and Irish touches that made it very comfortable! Regular size washer and dryer for laundry, no need for converters, and a kitchen that was well stocked and large enough for everyone to gather. We were there during the Gaelic Football playoffs, so my cousin's 12 year old son was able to show off his skill & knowledge in the front yard. Great memories! I have already recommended this home to family that is thinking of visiting Ireland next year. It was ideal. Thank you so much for sharing your home.
Teach mo chroi was the perfect home base for exploring Mayo and Galway. Our family of 7 (ranging in age from 9 to mid 70s) loved the spaciousness of the home; we never felt cramped and appreciated that everything was on one floor. The kitchen was perfectly equipped with everything we needed for meals in and we enjoyed sitting out back taking in the beautiful view of Croagh Patrick (which 3 of us managed to hike to the summit of!) The children loved the large yard and feeding the nearby donkeys each day. The duel current in the home was an added bonus as was the large laundry room. During our stay we were able to visit Knock Shrine, Westport, Louisburgh, Leenaun, and Cong, along with Kylemore and Ballintubber Abbeys. All were an easy drive away. We also visited Ireland's School of Falconry at Ashford Castle and Joyce Country Sheepdogs in Connemara, both of which were favorites with the entire family. If ever our travels bring us back to the beautiful west of Ireland, we will surely return to this lovely home. Thank you, Karla!
Your cottage is amazing! Pictures cannot give it true justice. There was plenty of room for everyone even the kitchen could seat eleven of us comfortably. But the best part was the views from the back yard, it was breathtaking. Your hostess Moira does an outstanding job at keeping it clean and explaining all the info on how to use the home. Also its location was perfect for anything you wanted to do or visit. We visited Castlebar, Westport and Newport. All the towns had a lot to offer. Thank you again for the use of your home, we loved it, and can’t wait to visit again!!!
This pretty, comfortable and well-equipped country house provided an excellent home base for us to explore County Mayo. The location is fabulous; the view off the back deck was divine, especially at sunset with the birdsong, fresh air, view of Croagh Patrick, and lambs bleating nearby. Our party of six slept comfortably and well; the bathrooms were modern and well-designed and the kitchen was perfect for cooking. The home is within driving distance of many popular and interesting places to visit, and we had a great time exploring the countryside by car and walking the local lanes around the home. The owner is warm, friendly, and responsive, and even went out of her way to help us connect with lost family. This was one of our most enjoyable and memorable vacations ever, and we can't wait to come back!
