About this location
The Western Ireland region
Mayo is Ireland's third biggest county and an exciting blend of rugged mountain trails and beautiful beaches set in the Western coastline. With a host of small villages dotted about the coastal area Mayo is suited to people trying to indulge themselves away from civilisation. But with large towns like Ballina and Westport it's modern and vibrant enough to boats a great nightlife.
Mayo also includes Ireland's largest island. Achill Island is accessible from the mainland by bridge. Its magnificent sandy beaches, sea cliffs and warm hospitality bring visitors back again and again for holidays. The famous Atlantic Drive takes you on a journey of scenic splendour, a must for all visitors to Achill. For the more adventurous Achill boasts no less than two adventure centres which offer the best in windsurfing, sailing, abseiling, diving and many other activities.
North of Galway is Mayo, one of Ireland's most picturesque counties. A place of small towns and villages Mayo has 13 Blue Flag beaches, the ideal lodation for watersports such as swimming and surfing. Centuries ago this coastline was ravaged by the infamous Irish pirate Queen Granualie who terrorised English traders as far south as Portugal. Today the coast is a far quieter spot though as popular with sailors as it was all those centuries ago.
The west of Ireland is linked in the minds of the Irish people with the rural traditions that still survive there today. The small villages and farms hark back to a countryside of long ago which has survived the rush of 'progress'. A rural idyll indeed, but in Achill a place for the excitement and nightlife that is summed up in the peculiarly Irish word of 'craic'.
Achill Island is the largest island off the coast of Ireland. It has a population of 2,700. Achill is attached to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge The island retains some striking natural beauty. The cliffs of Croaghaun on the western end of the island are the third highest sea cliffs in Europe Near the westernmost point of Achill, Achill Head, is Keem Bay. Keel Beach is quite popular with tourists and some locals as a surfing location. South of Keem beach is Moytoge Head, which with its rounded appearance drops dramatically down to the ocean. An old British observation post, built during World War 1 to prevent the Germans from landing arms for the Irish Republican Army is still standing on Moytoge. During the Second World War this post was rebuilt by the Irish Defence Forces as a Look Out Post for the Coast Watching Service wing of the Defence Forces. It operated from 1939 to 1945.

It's always nice to learn that the visitors had such a positive holiday experience during their stay at Ocean View, Dugort, Achill Island. It really is a “stunning place" and it's good to know that they were, for the most part, very impressed with what is generally available in the surrounding area.

Oceanview was the perfect place to stay with kids. Spotlessly clean and spacious so the kids could run around with all the mod cons to keep them happy. Kitchen was great and I cooked for us all every day. The view out the kitchen window of the mountain towering over Dugurt and the beach is just jaw dropping. There's a lovely bright openplan nature to the house including bedroom. Views are fantastic from every window. The owner Val couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. The location is amazing just across the road from one of the best beaches I ever saw. Many a time we went swimming we had the whole beach to ourselves. I'll definitely be going back.
Our aim is to create a pleasant, safe and enjoyable environment for both adults and children alike. Easy access to all the natural amenities in the area is definitely a major advantage and providing indoor facilities which are clean, user friendly and fit for purpose adds to the sense of guest satisfaction.
