Pretty cottage set in rural setting, close to fabulous blue flag beaches and only a short stroll to Louisburgh village.
Ideal location to discover the county of Mayo, with it's fish-filled rivers, blue flag beaches, great golf courses and the most incredible touring, treking and walking counntryside you could imagine.
Visitors to Louisburgh are continually surprised by the magnificent scenery of the area. Located on the Wild Atlantic Coast, this lovely remote undiscovered corner of Western Europe boasts safe pollution-free (Blue-Flagg) beaches.
Louisburgh is the focal point of an area some 450 square miles in extent, stretching from Killary Fiord to the South, to the Owenree River to the North, and from the coast to the Erriff valley watershed in the East. All of this landscape is designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Mayo County Development Plan, and calls have been made for its designation as a 'Special Amenity Area'.

Louisburgh is the focal point of an area some 450 square miles in extent, stretching from Killary Fiord to the South, to the Owenree River to the North, and from the coast to the Erriff valley watershed in the East.
All of this landscape is designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Mayo County Development Plan, and calls have been made for its designation as a 'Special Amenity Area'.
Mayo's coastline accounts for 16.8% of the total Irish coast, 16% of Ireland's sandy beaches, and many of Ireland's Blue Flag beaches. Three of these beaches are located in the Louisburgh area... Carramore, Old Head, and Bertra, while beaches at Killadoon have been rated as the best in Europe, i.e. Tallabawn (Silver Strand) and Dooaghtry. For scenic drives travel south to Connemara via Doolough and Leenane, north to Achill via Westport and Newport, or to Ballycastle and the Ceide Fields via Castlebar and Pontoon, or east to Tourmakeady and Lough Nafooey via Westport/Tourmakeady and Leenane, or if you fancy leaving the car out the road at Roonagh pier, go west to Clare Island or lnishturk.

"Une superbe maison tout confort au calme dans un merveilleux endroit"
Nous avons séjourné dans cette maison pour une semaine et nous n'avons vraiment rien a redire ! La maison est très bien située (15 min à pied pour la ville et 10 pour la plage) dans un envir… More

"Gorgeous house, location, holiday!"
An absolutely perfect house, in a perfect location, in a perfect corner of the world. This house is in easy walking distance of the village of Louisburgh and a 5 minute drive takes you to one of the best beaches we've ever enjoyed. A short drive and you are in Westport with a wide variety of pubs, restaurants and other amenities. Donna made sure everything was ready and perfect for our arrival and we loved the house so much that we rebooked for the following year before we'd even left!!

"A home away from home."
This house is in immaculate condition. The owner obviously uses the house a lot herself, as it is very comfortable and well furnished. The kitchen has everything you need and more. Two very good quality TV's, dvd, satellite. Bedrooms and linen up to hotel standards. All the rooms are of good proportions.
Luisbourgh is a nice little town. It is in a perfect location for exploring the region. Very close to good surfing beaches (5 miles) also two other safe beaches within 1 mile of the house.
If travelling with teenagers be sure to bring enough to occupy them, as there is no scene locally.

"Fantastic, well equipped cottage in a quiet rural location 5 mins walk from the sea"
We spent a lovely few days in Donna's cottage. The cottage is beautiful, with 4 spacious bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The children were safe playing outside as there is quite a large grass area at the side of the house and the country lane had hardly any passing traffic. It was only 5 mins walk to the local beach and 10 mins in the car to the nearby surf beach where the children hired body boards. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

"Excellant House in a Good Location"
This house Is Excellant. I have stayed in a lot of holiday homes over the past 20 yrs in Ireland and in my opinion this is the best equipped and furnished house I have ever stayed in. Donna has went to a lot of effort to make it feel like your own home.every detail is catered for.
Directions were excellant
Location had everything that was needed for a holiday - beach, childrens playground, fishing places, places to visit locally, bars. restaurants.
1st time visitor to Louisburgh and would highly recommend it to anyone

"Fabulous house in a fantastic location."
9 people stayed in this house without feeling cramped. It is a very spacious and extremely well equipped house. The location is marvellous with a 5 minute walk into Louisburgh main street, and the beach (which could almost be secluded). I would highly recommend Donna's house to anyone looking to stay in this beautiful part of Ireland.

"Perfect setting, peace and all the home comforts"
We were initially worried about two families - both with teenagers staying in one house. We needn't have - this house comfortably worked for the eight of us. Its nicely tucked away but a short walk down country lanes to both the beach and local village - where everyone was really friendly. THe house itself is very homely and well equiped - would recommend to anyone
