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.
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.""

"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
