The Western Ireland region
"The Erris Peninsula (Ireland's own Eden) is unrivalled for its variety of stunning scenery, dramatic coastlines, colourful moors and crystal waters teeming with abundant marine life" - The Irish Times (11/07/2009). Erris is an ancient land alive with legends and mystery to be witnessed in the Ceide Fields and the greatest concentration of Stone Age tombs in Europe.
In 2009, Erris was among the 5 finalists in the European Destination of Excellence competition (EDEN) awarded for developing tourism potential of protected areas in a sustainable manner while also ensuring the preservation of the area's social and cultural heritage. From early Summer onwards the area hosts cultural and heritage festivals almost on a weekly basis.
While enjoying the ceol (Irish Music) and the craic (fun) of the region's festivals, the sea angler can take their chance at catching any of the 39 varieties of fish that abound along its coast. The largest visitor is the mighty basking shark with Porbeagle and the blue shark in plentiful supply. The region's many charter boats offer visits to the islands off the peninsula to see the seals, dolphins and rare birds including the 40% of the breeding population of the Barnacle Goose from Iceland.
With such a dramatic coastline and the sea full to the brim with fish, watersports are synonymous with the region. Diving here is second to none.
Whether you desire an action packed, fun-filled holiday or a relaxing break inclined to more gentle pursuits and activities, Belmullet in the heart of Erris is a wise choice of holiday destination!

Belmullet Town is well served with a variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, banks, bakery, 2 hotels, cafés, hotel leisure centre, leisure complex, hairdressers and more.
Quite apart from the attraction of the dramatic coastline which attracts the watersport addict, the birdwatching enthusiast, and the golfing enthusiast can also enjoy a cottage break in the very heart of some of the best golf and most pleasant birdwatching in the world.
Tearmon is located in the very heart of this renowned bird sanctuary and is just 10 minutes drive from Carne Golf Links - now firmly established as amongst the best 30 links courses in the world.
The fields adjacent to Tearmon Cottage are occupied by Birdwatch Ireland as breeding grounds. Here the corncrake calls out to mates and the restful sounds of a huge variety of birds are constant, competing only with the sound of the smashing waves on Southport Rocks. A visit to the nearby Termoncarragh Lake will provide hours of birdwatching satisfaction. It is recommended that the enthusiast visits the website of Birdwatch Ireland for full information.
On the other hand the golf enthusiast should pay a visit to the Carne Golk Links website to whet your appetite for one of the most memorable courses you have ever played.
The Broadhaven Bay Hotel in Belmullet has a new leisure centre and parents and children can avail of the swimming pool and gym there.
Also on the Ballina Road and just outside the town a whole new leisure complex has kiddies and adult facilities. Gateway Leisure (call 097.20002) is a fully air conditioned complex which contains the following facilities to keep customers totally entertained. The complex includes:
• 10-Pin Bowling
• Pool Tables
• Kid Island – a children’s activity centre
• Air hockey Tables
• Other Games
• Licensed Pub and Restaurant
Finally, perhaps you prefer a scenic drive - then you can choose the short route to the south of the peninsula to visit nearby Blacksod which looks directly at the sea-crossing to Achill Island. Or perhaps a little further drive (35km or 24 mls) along the stunning North Mayo Coast and visit the famous world heritage site of the Ceide Fields. The Céide Fields are the oldest known field systems in the world, over five and a half millennia old. It is a unique Neolithic landscape of world importance, which has changed our perception of our Stone Age ancestors. The remains of stone field walls, houses and megalithic tombs are preserved beneath a blanket of peat over several square miles. They tell a story of the everyday lives of a farming people, their organized society, their highly developed spiritual beliefs, and their struggle against a changing environment beyond their control.

"fabulous location , amazing scenery, georgeous cottage"
We stayed in the beautiful Tearmon Cottage in August and we were amazed at the tranquility of the area, the scenery from the cottage includes views of Ireland's most westerly seaboard and Eagle's Island with its lighthouse.
The cottage is bright , clean and well equipped with 2 lovely spacious bedrooms,a large lounge and a seperate well equipped kitchen.
The cottage is surrounded by lands which are preserved as a bird santuary.
If you want to escape to a tranquil location where you can relax with views of the sea in a well maintained house then Tearmon Cottage is made for you.
We will be returning again next year and we will highly recommending Tearmon Cottage to all our friends

"Musings on the Mullet"
After almost a month a Tearmon Cottage, I was particularly sad to say goodye to the place and to the Mullet Peninsula. There isn't much here except sheep, cattle, friendly local people, dramatic seascapes, and that wonderful and constantly-changing West Ireland weather.
I came to read, write and play golf at the nearby world class links course at Carne. The owner of the house, John, and his local "representative," Bridie, could not have been more helpful or more gracious. Bridie even brought me a bag of peat to burn for a couple of days while the oil tank was being re-filled.
This is a perfect place to get away from whatever it is you want to get away from or to just spend time walking, thinking or reading. But I recommend the place to golfers as well, as it has a beautifully remote feel to it, but is only 15 minutes to town, a grocery store and Carne Golf Club. The people at Carne are wonderful and you will want to play the course over and over again, especially when you figure out that if you come before 9am on weekdays you can have it to yourself!
I sincerely appreciate John making his home available to guests and hope to return again sooner rather than later.

"A must for birdwatchers!!"
Had an amazing week at tearmon in brilliant weather. We walked for miles every day and recorded 46 bird species and had corncrake calling ten feet from my bedroom window at 4am! There is amazing abundance of wild flowers around the house and the restuarants in Belmullet are excellent for seafood. Local people have a friendliness about them not observed in all parts of Ireland. Furthermore, the house was all we could have hoped for and we will return next June to revisit a very much underappreciated part of the Emerald Isle.
