Discover Achill Island with a stay at Naomh Iosaef, The Points. The Points is a small peninsula near Shraheens which is surrounded by Achill Sound. The shore is a two minute stroll and it's relaxing to spend time walking by the water's edge. This beautiful architect designed house is south facing, warm, spacious, modern and light filled. The sitting room, with its cathedral ceilings and large glass windows, is ideal for capturing the ever-changing scenery of the sea and mountains. Naomh Iosaef is an ideal and tranquil setting to unwind from the fast pace of life. Time seems to slow down on Achill Island allowing time to appreciate its beauty and the grandeur of nature made famous by Paul Henry and Heinrich Boll. Excellent free Wi-Fi is available.

Really nice house just outside Achill sound. Lovely big windows looking over the sound and a fuel burning stove. Slightly off the beaten track - definitely need a car!

About the neighborhood
Achill island is a Gaeltacht area where English and Irish is spoken. Because of its relative remoteness, it has managed to preserve its unspoilt beauty and still has a very relaxing, laid back ambience. The scenery is spectacular by any standards and the Minnaun Hights, the highest cliffs in Europe are about ten minutes drive away. There are many fine beaches and recreational facilities no more than 20 minutes drive away including, watersports, fishing, kite surfing, golfing and cycling paths, and walks. Achill also hosts many art galleries, festival and retaurants.
How to get there
Achill Island is the biggest Island in Ireland and situated on the west coast of Co Mayo. Knock Airport is about an hour away and Shannon airport is a 3 hour journey, and Dublin 4 hours, all by car. Naomh Iosaef is on Google Earth and we will be happy to give you a map when you book. Achill is also an hour's drive from the picturesque town of Westport (voted best place in Ireland to live in 2012).
