Holiday home This traditional, stone built cottage is conveniently located on the edge of Ballinrobe market town in County Mayo. At over 150 years old, this property is full of character and combines traditional features such as the exposed stone walls and slate flooring with all necessary modern amenities for a comfortable, well-equipped holiday cottage. With three double bedrooms – one with cot – and a twin bedroom, this property is ideal for a group of friends or a large family. Other accommodation is composed of a fitted kitchen with dining area and a lounge with open fire. With off-road parking for four cars, a lawned garden, and permission to bring two well-behaved dogs, this is a wonderful place for a real family vacation.
Area The thriving market town of Ballinrobe is located on the River Robe in County Mayo, close to both Lough Mask and Lough Corrib. Apparently the oldest town in South Mayo, this settlement dates as far back as the 1300s. This town retains a vibrant atmosphere with a diverse range of shops, pubs and restaurants. Due to its convenient placement on the border between regions, this wonderful little settlement makes a good base for those wishing to explore both County Galway and County Mayo. With excellent fishing lakes and good golf facilities close by too, Ballinrobe has plenty for those who enjoy the great outdoors. Both the Mayo and Galway coastlines are worth visiting and can be easily reached in a couple of hours, as can the world famous Connemara National Park.
Region The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

The cottage was superb and Fiona could not have been any more helpful.. Great welcome package including bread, milk and coffee - just what you need when you arrive.
We had such a great time at Delias Cottage.. Fiona our host was so nice and welcoming. We loved everything about Co Mayo and the cottage was a great base for travelling around. Would definitely recommend
Wonderful Irish life experience
My family and I stayed at this lovely cottage for 6 night's. It's very cosy and warm, especially when the fire is on. The cottage is very clean and had everything you might need. Great location too, close to Cong and Galway. A great base for traveling around the wild Atlantic Way. Fiona, our host, couldn't have been more accommodating. Highly recommend this place. We will definatley be coming back next time we visit.
Delia's Cottage was an awesome place to stay--it was very clean, comfortable and was the ultimate Irish cottage! We had a great time and only wish that we had more time to spend there. Fiona, the owner, was phenomenal to work with and she went out of her way to make sure that our stay was the best that it could be. She left us pastries and even made us a fire on the first day of our visit. We would DEFINITELY rebook Delia's Cottage again! Thanks so much Fiona!
This is a nice cottage within easy walking distance of town. The owners met us and provided the history of the cottage. This was a pleasant place to stay for a few days and an ideal location to explore all of the surrounding area.

A great place for a family. Our children loved their Ireland Home.
Very friendly reception with cake and milk so we could relax straight away. When we had a problem there was an immediate and effective response so that we were not inconvenienced. Overall, an excellent hostess and I would have no hesitation recommending.

Being able to have a real fire, with logs and peat supplied was lovely. The internet connection was an added bonus.
