Holiday home This charming detached cottage is just three miles from Ballinrobe and offers cosy and comfortable accommodation all on the ground floor. The living area is on open plan and is spacious, light and airy, the modern fitted kitchen is well equipped and there is a generous sized dining area.

Outside is a small garden area with furniture and a barbecue and shared access to a secluded harbour onto Lough Mask. This cottage makes a superb base to see this lovely part of Ireland.
Area The vibrant town of Ballinrobe is situated by the River Robe in County Mayo, close to Lough Corrib and Lough Mask. Dating back to the 1300s, it is thought to be the oldest town in South Mayo. The town now has a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and pubs and its location makes it an ideal base to explore County Mayo and County Galway. There are a number of outdoor activities available in the area, from fishing on the nearby lakes to a round of golf on one of the many fine golf courses in the area. Further away and roughly a two-hour drive lies the National Park of Connemara with wonderful walks and breathtaking scenery. This is a wonderful region for a holiday at any time of year.
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.

we booked lakeside cottage this summer for one week , we were very lucky and had great wheather , my 2 young grandchildren came with us both 2yrs old , the garden was safe and the play area at the back of the cottage was a great idea as were the tennis courts , there was something for everyone
if you want a peacefull away from everything holiday this is the place to go
The owners were more than helpful and very friendly , we hope to return next year
The cottage had a homely feel to it, which was very welcoming.. The cottage was in an excellent location, close enough to local amenities yet quiet and secluded surrounded by natural foliage with its own large private garden. We would very happily go back there again.

Wonderfully relaxing and central to many locations..
Cottage was basic but funcional, set in a quiet, beautiful area close to the lake. Great place to get away from it all.
Great place to chill out and go fishing.. Quiet and very enjoyable stay. Would return.
