The Western Ireland region

The Foxhollow Cottage holidaying region includes Counties Mayo and Galway. This is a large region and mainly suitable for

touring. Regions to tour would include Connemara with its magnificent mountain scenery and a visit to Galway city.

Louisburgh is on the WILD ATLANTIC WAY which continues South to Leenane and onwards through Connemara and Galway

If keen to take the WAW Northwards to NW Mayo via Westport

Louisburgh and Foxhollow are ideal locations to use as a base for these large ventures

. We would suggest that a holiday group first take a holiday in the Louisburgh area AS DESCRIBED BELOW and return

for the WILD ATLANTIC WAY venture at a later date. WAW information is available from Foxhollow Hollow or Failte Ireland.

Louisburgh

We find that our guests staying at Foxhollow Cottage, mainly stay within a triangle marked

by Westport, Leenane, and the Mweel Rea mountains South West of Louisburgh.

Much of this area has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty

. Inland and along the coaT there are walking routes and cycling trails all with spectacular views.

Along the coast there are many sandy beaches suitable for swimming and surfing

IN THE VILLAGE THERE ARE FINE PUBS WITH IRISH MUSIC SESSIONS AND SOME GOOD RESTAURANTS.

STANTON'S FINE PHARMACY STANDS GUARD ON THE VILLAGE SQUARE. THE BUNOWEN RIVER FLOWS

BY THE PICNIC AREA AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MAIN STREET AND UNDER THE NEW BRIDGE.

The church and Garda station stand guard as one enters the town and hairpin right down toeards Foxhollow.

This is undoubtedly a lovely place for a holiday . Once one gets to know the natives it is difficult to leave.""

ALONG THE COAST there are mNY SANDY BEACHES

"Blackberry picking heaven in magical Mayo!"

This has become the home away from home for us. An opportunity to switch off and get away from it all although it's only 15 minutes from Westport town and minutes from some of the best scenery an… More

"Great house, great location."

The house was immaculate throughout. Very spacious inside and out with loads of garden space for kids. Great quiet location yet 5-10 minutes walk into town. Great views of both the ocean and Croagh Patrick. We hope to return again
