About this location
The Western Ireland region
Our Farmhouse Cottage is situated in what is the rural splendour of beautiful County Mayo, Ireland. Knock Marian Shrine is located nearby and for shoppers the City of Galway and the county town of Castlebar are hard to beat 'who needs Dublin when you have Castlebar' is what the locals say!
Within easy reach is the Atlantic coast, Joyce's Country and the beautiful Connemara National Park. Westport and clew bay offer local fishing, golf, horse riding. There are many historical sites and places of interest to visit traditional pubs, 'ceol agus craic' and excellent food.
Also worth a visit is the town of Westport, at the base of the sacred mountain of Croagh Patrick. One of Europe's most famous pilgrimage sites, the mountain is often climbed barefoot by devotees of St. Patrick but anyone is free to make the trip. Those that decide to do so are rewarded with stunning views of the island-strewn Clew Bay. Westport also offers less strenuous pursuits, including golf, fishing and cycling around town.
Westport’s cheerful, multi-coloured shop fronts jostle for attention with an attractive selection of pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants. Little wonder it has become one of Ireland’s most popular and cosmopolitan holiday destinations. One of the few planned towns in Ireland the beautiful and unique boulevard known as The Mall was designed in the 18th Century by James Wyatt.
Just a short drive from Westport lies Achill Island, a popular summer holiday
destination for locals. Connected to the mainland by a two-lane bridge at Achill Sound, the large island offers lots of outdoor activities, with several blue flag beaches, surfing, hill-walking, wind surfing and golf all available to keep you busy. The island makes an excellent spot for a relaxing getaway and a couple of nights here is sure to leave you feeling completely de-stressed.
Driving in Ireland in straightforward and most of the rural roads are quiet and easy to navigate. No matter how long you have to spend, Mayo is a laidback county where you will discover authentic Irish hospitality at its best.
Mayo offers a variety of scenery from the fishing villages on the coast to dramatic inland mountains, including a famous hilltop shrine. Some of the highlights of a holiday in County Mayo include a visit to the pretty town of Ballina on the River Moy, around 35 miles from Knock.
Famous for its salmon fishing, the town really comes alive during the annual Salmon Festival in July, which involves live music, dancing and lots of children's activities. The town is steeped in culture and history and is the main centre for shopping and entertainment in northern Mayo.
