The North West Ireland region

This property is located in the sleepy village of Lahardane (population is about 500), adjacent to Lough Conn and with views of the Nephin Mountain. It is very close to Pontoon (12km), Crossmolina (9km) and the towns of Castlebar (27km), Ballina (21km) and Foxford (17km). The great advantage of this property is that it is only a 2 minute walk away from the local shop and pubs while still having the peace and tranquillity of a rural setting.

Addergoole parish suffered the largest proportionate loss for any locality probably in the world when the RMS Titanic sank in 1912. The Addergoole Fourteen boarded the ship at Queenstown (Cobh), County Cork. Three survived the disaster. There is a plaque in St Patrick's Church, Lahardane to the memory of the fourteen and last year on the 100th anniversary a memorial park was opened in the village.

Pontoon

Fishing is one of the main attractions for visitors to this friendly Mayo village. Lahardane is only a short distance from Lough Conn and the smaller Lough Cullen, both of which are part of the great natural fishing waters of Ireland and famed worldwide for their large stocks of salmon and brown trout fished each year by avid anglers from many parts of the globe.

Visiting anglers who make Lahardane their base can also choose to fish the great river Moy where it flows through Foxford only a few miles away, or can hire a boat and fish for salmon and sea-trout on nearby Lake Beltra, near Glenisland. Nearby Lough Levally will furnish their needs if interested in fishing for pike. Boats & Gillies can be hired/arranged locally by e-mailing murphyboathirelconn@eircom.net.
