Belmullet Coastguard Station
Lighthouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Belmullet CGS was beautifully restored in 2010 to the highest standards. It is set in the heart of a working beef farm on Claggan Island.The island offers a relaxed atmosphere that is both private and secluded and yet we are only 12kms (10 minute drive) from Belmullet town and 5km to the nearest shop in Glencastle.The island is linked to the mainland via a causeway that is accessable by car all year round. The house has been carefully and purposely furnished to the highest standard so that our guests have a very comfortable and relaxing holiday. From the King size beds with memory foam mattresses to the reclining chairs in the living room, every room has been carefully designed & laid out so that guests experience a level of comfort and a feeling of being at home that will have you coming back again and again. The beach is only 5 minutes walk away and is very safe for children to play and swim.
We offer a relaxing, carefree holiday, ideal for couples or families. Children love feeding the hens, ducks and turkeys. They can also help collect the eggs in the morning. We also supply a basket of fresh vegatables from the garden (when in season) Chldren can experience first hand how their food is grown and enjoy the great flavour of the fresh vegetables.

We stayed for week in November at Belmullett coastguard Station and would highly recommend it. From the start of the holiday to the end it was wow. We were met by Laurance who was the ideal host even breakfast was in the fridge. The house has been renovated to a very high standard. All bedrooms were very comfortable. The kitchen had all the mod cons you expected .
The views from tower/sitting room we're breathtaking morning and evening looking out over to Belmullet. It was a 10min drive to Belmullet and we found some excellent places to eat and relax.
Thanks to the Howard family for a very relaxing and enjoyable week we will definitely be returning
Thank you for the kind & positive feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay & hope to see you again in future. Best wishes from all at Belmullet Cgs.
