The house is on an acre of private property in the heart of County Mayo in the west of Ireland. The views from the front of the house are of Lough Carra, a 4,000 acre lake famous for it's fishing and diverse wildlife.
“Believe all the reviews, this spot really is as lovely as everyone says. Set in its own private grounds, right on the lake, this is an ideal getaway for, well, anyone looking to get away! Unfortunately, I wasn't blessed with good weather during my stay, but I still spent plenty of time out on the deck watching the lake and the many different inhabitants. I saw frogs, a swan family, starlings, moorhens, robins, magpies and, on my final morning, a grey heron, all up close (the frog sat in my hand!) . Completely unspoilt and with great woodland/ forest walks nearby in Moorehall. A really special place to stay. Bring all your own food and have a completely off-the-grid self-catering break. Also ideal for dark-sky watching- absolutely zero light pollution on a lake in a forest around 25 mins drive from any towns! Again, unfortunately, the weather didn't allow for much of this during my stay but I had just as good a time sat by the fire with the wind and rain beating down outside. Felt very safe here, despite being near nothing or no one. Really wish I'd had just one more day! For entertainment, Ballinrobe is a lively town with everything you could need (including a massive Tesco's for stocking up!) on an easy route around 25 mins drive away. Claremorris is roughly the same distance in another direction, lots of good places to eat and friendly people and independent shops. The cottage is simply a delightful place to zone out and enjoy wildlife. Absolutely delightful accommodation, a real find”

This 200-year old, newly-modernised ex-farmhouse is full of character. Walled back garden gives real privacy. Make yourself at home in our kitchen and living room. Located 4km from Ballinrobe, ideal base for touring entire west of Ireland. The room we offer is a double room en-suite. There is another double room linked to this en-suite bathroom - we can offer it as a Special Offer for €35 extra. This, in effect, becomes a very nice family suite. Please enquire pre-booking and we can amend.
“This is a great place to stay to explore the West of Ireland. Both Liam and Noreen are extremely welcoming and helpful hosts, opening up their beautiful house to us and making us feel completely at ease there. The bedroom was a good size and characterful with wooden floors and cupboards, and with the additional benefit of a sizeable en-suite shower room. The breakfast, left on the kitchen table each morning, set us up perfectly for the day.”
