Holiday home Wild Atlantic View Cottage is a lovely detached cottage situated in the village of Dugort, on Achill Island in County Mayo. This cottage sleeps nine people in four bedrooms consisting of two doubles, one of which has an en-suite, a ground floor double and a family room with three single beds. The cottage also has a ground floor bathroom, an upstairs shower room, an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with electric fire and a sitting room with open fire. Outside there's off road parking for four cars, a front lawned and gravelled garden and a rear patio with furniture. A delightful Achill Island base.
Area Achill Island is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, and has five Blue Flag beaches. A number of activities can also be enjoyed on the island, including surfing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking.
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.
Amenities Oil central heating with open fire. Electric oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, TV with Saorview. Fuel, power and starter pack for open fire inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Off road parking for 4 cars. Front lawned and gravel garden, plus rear patio with furniture. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 4.5 miles, pub and beach 5 mins walk. Note: Sloping ceilings in first floor bedrooms and shower room. One well behaved dog welcome. Note: The cottage adjoins several working sheep farms, so dogs need to be supervised and kept under control.
We have just arrived back from a fabulous week at the wild Atlantic view cottage! We had the most amazing time and made very valuable memories with our children! The house was immaculate with everything we needed and the hosts could not have been any nicer! We were so impressed we booked again for another trip for next year before we had even left this time! Highly recommend this property

5 star++++ amazing gem of a house in Achill- house is perfect for families spotless , spacious and so homely.. Beaches minutes walks away on either side of house. Scenery is stunning and loads to do locally. Beautiful gift on arrival and Yvonne could not have been a nicer host- one of our best holidays! I would highly recommend this beautiful house
Mrs Minihan, July 2020
An immaculately clean and deceptively spacious cottage with great views of Slievemore Mountain and over the sea.. Yvonne and Joe looked after us very well, and we couldn't have asked for a better equipped place to base ourselves. It's well located, and the whole of Achill Island is easily reachable if you have a car, which is great because there are plenty of walking and sightseeing options, even in the low autumn season.
We would highly recommend you book this warm and homely cottage, albeit not when we're planning to return :-)

Cottage was excellent, stunning views over Blacksod Bay and the nearest cafe was just a short walk down the hill, superb coffee, great selection of food and lots of home baked treats for afters.. The owner Yvonne could not have been more helpful, the cottage was spotless and extremely spacious with just the 4 of us. An ideal cottage for a great family holiday with the beach so close, great walks as well as a superb base for visiting the rest of the island. McClimonds Family Banbridge.

We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful part of Ireland.. The house exceeded our expectations and the owners Yvonne and Joe were on hand to deal with any questions or issues that arose. For anyone seeking a quiet location and yet convenient for the beach, sea and other parts of Achil Island, this is an ideal base. Overall I would recommend this property to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

The fabulous views from the house the friendliness of the owner and the people on the island.. The range of things you can do the places you can get too from the island, and the relaxed and peaceful pace of life on the island. We would have no problem going back or recommending the house to anyone. Had a wonderful week there.

If you want a relaxing holiday, then go to this house.. The owners, Yvonne and Joe are the most lovely people you could wish to meet. They go out of their way to ensure your holiday is perfect. The views are amazing. Superb beaches a short walk away. The peace and quiet was really appreciated ,as we live in a town , full of town noises. Can't wait to go again.
We had a lovely stay at the cottage with great local views.. The beach is a few minutes walk and pubs and shops are a 15 minute drive away. The cottage accommodates large and small families and has everything you would need for your stay. The efficient heating and hot water were most welcome after chilly walks during our March stay.The hosts are welcoming and helpful and provide you with everything you might need for your stay and give up to date information about local events. A great base for exploring the island and the nearby national park.
