Gleeson's Cottage on the Lake

Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Pontoon, County Mayo, Western Ireland
Tranquil retreat with all the comforts of home in the heart of the country, but only 15km from Castlebar and 10 from Foxford.

A short walk down a grassy lane to lakeside beaches.

Wake up to the sound of birdsong and rabbits in the garden. The Whooper swans are back on the lake for the winter.

The cottage is very cosy and well equipped. All of our guests have loved it so far

Lots to see in the local area and an ideal touring base for Mayo, Galway and Sligo.

Loughs Cullin & Con are just down the lane and are well known for fishing.

Take a walk or drive in the Nephin Beag hills and take in the spectacular views of the lakes.

About the neighborhood
The cottage is in the heart of Mayo and is a great base from which to tour the area. From lakeside to mountain, the scenery is fantastic.
