The North West 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.

Curneen

If you plan to arrange car hire Knock airport is probably the best place to collect the vehicle as most visitors enter the county through this gateway. If you organise it in advance you are more likely to get a good deal on your rental and you can be sure the car will be ready when you arrive so you can begin exploring straight away. Book through Ryanair using Hertz, or use auto-europe.co.uk, who in our experience are excellent. Driving in Ireland is 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.

The rugged and untamed wilderness of County Mayo on the

west coast of Ireland often overlooked by tourists yet the

unspoilt and isolated nature of the place is precisely what

makes this area such an excellent holiday destination.

It may not suit those looking for wild parties or bustling

resort towns but for anyone that enjoys the great outdoors,

traditional hospitality and getting back to nature, County Mayo

will certainly appeal to you. Ireland`s third largest county.

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.

"The Perfect Way to Relax Into Any Holiday"

After a great drive through the lovely countryside, we were met at the cottage and shown where everything was - and were given good tips on where to eat out and the whereabouts of local sights. Not to mention, a bottle of wine was also left as a welcome gift.

We spent most of our days walking though the fields and feeding the horses up the road. There is also a disused railway track some 500m away and a lake 200m away that is a good excuse for some exploring of the area. So far, it has been the best holiday to relax, unwind and take life at our own pace.

Sitting by the fire playing a board game with a drink in-hand was a perfect way to spend an evening. On a clear night I would heartily recommend taking a stroll outside for some star gazing - the number of stars and clarity of them truly is astonishing. You will also notice that it is so peaceful - no noise of traffic/neighbours can be heard from the cottage.

All in all, we are glad that we booked another night - and are looking forward to our next trip back!
