About this location
The Western Ireland region
This beautiful unspoilt part of Connemara is the ideal getaway location for those who want to unwind and forget about it all for a while. After staying here you will not want to go back to the city.
For those of you who like driving we are in the heart of the most beautiful scenery in the world. This area is truly unique as it is the only place in Europe that a blanket bog (peat) exists. The Irish hare ,red grouse, butterflies, dragonflies, spiders live in these blanket bogs which are 10,000 years old. It is also used as a form of heat , after it is cut and dried. It has an unusual relaxing smell when burning. Or why not let us do the driving for you in our 16 seater bus so you can enjoy the scenery even more.
The coastline of Mayo and Connemara is large and ever changing with the light that follows the contours of the mountains and valleys, only photos can describe the tranquility and beauty of this area.
If it's walking, cycling, adventure sports or golfing your after or maybe just relaxing with family and friends then give us a call to learn why Eaglewood Lodge is the best choice for you.
The Erriff river is only 100 metres away from the lodge and is a good salmon fishing river. Just a five minute drive is Moher lake where you can fish for brown trout. About an hour's walk from Eaglewoodlodge is Glenawough lake located high up in the hills in front of the lodge.
The bustling and adventure town of Westport is just 15km away and is one of the best towns in Ireland for entertainment, good food, leisure facilities and home to Matt Molloy's pub of the Chieftains. There is a music festival held in June and August and an arts festival in October.
Heading further south from Eaglewood lodge there is the village of Leenane on the Wild Atlantic Way renowned for the making of the film 'The Field'. It is located on the Killary Fjord the only Fjord in western Europe. Here you can fish for mackeral from the shore or why not take a trip on the Killary Cruiser to enjoy the wonderful scenery of the Fjord. Further on towards Clifden is Kylemore Abbey, a beautiful abbey dating back to 1860. The medieval village of Aughagower is only 8km away and is where St Patrick passed through on his way to Croagh Patrick. It has a tenth century round tower and an old graveyard and is a great place to start looking for long lost relatives from this area. Ballintuber Abbey is where the St Patrick walk starts and is 30min away.
Sea angling can also be arranged please enquire with owner. There are two adventure centres 8 miles away Killary Adventure centre and Delphi Adventure centre catering for all who want to use up some energy. You can go hillwalking, road and mountain biking from the lodge or just watch bird life and plants from the living room.
Set amonst surrounding mountains , sheep and cattle graze nearby . Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holy mountain is only a stones throw away. The mountain range in this area is truly remarkable and majestic as the colours change from hour to hour with the different light. There is a famine monument twenty minutes away in memory of those who died on their way to Delphi looking for food during the great famine of 1847.

"If you're coming to Westport in a large group Eaglewood is the place to stay!"

"More than we could have ever asked for!"
Eaglewood Lodge is a property where what you see online is actually surpassed when you arrive. When we drove up the driveway, we saw this beautiful American style log home and then gazed across to our view from the porch, the county Mayo mountain view strikes you as being surreal in its beauty. It only gets better from there. We arrived to find Michael Gavin, our wonderful host, had lit the fire and left a lovely basket of wine and cheese which we welcomed as we were very hungry. Michael has his property running like an efficient, environmentally friendly machine which respects the natural wonders all around it. I was pleased at his awareness of these issues and gladly took up the lessons on living such a way easily and without any inconvenience. My only regret is that I wish that we could have stayed longer. It is beyond a 10 out of 10 in every area! Thanks so much Michael!

"Hugely impressive lodge, with great facilities"
5 friends and I stayed here on the June Bank Holiday weekend.
We found Eaglewood lodge to be hugely impressive in terms of size, quality and facilities. We made the most of the BBQ and garden outside with the good weather, and on two occasions took a taxi into the town, which is about 10 miles away from the lodge, between a few people this wasn't expensive.
The owner was very accommodating and made sure we were looked after for the whole weekend, Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their weekend and we would have no hesitation in returning again.
