"Breathtaking Panorama from a beautiful Holiday House"

A very secure, well-designed holiday house on a small, gated community with ample facilities and fine picture window for a magnificent view across Clew Bay. Across the bay is a fine view of the Reek dominated by Croagh Patrick, while to the left are the numerous little islets - drowned drumlins in the sea, remnants of Ireland's glaciated past. This whole panorama represents a marvellous view - totally unique!
Close by is the noted hotel in Mulranny, Achill Island, Newport and Westport and the new Greenway for walkers and cyclists. Few locations offer such a combination - ideal for that get-away break or family holiday near the sea.

All in all, a superb location offering many other places of great interest, all within easy reach.

Highly recommended

"The Mulranny Experience"

We have just come back from a wonderful break in Mulranny We stayed in Pam Harrington's holiday cottage,one of the houses in the complex beside the Mulranny Park Hotel. We had a wonderful relaxing week. This house is ideal,3 bedrooms,3 bathrooms kitchen/dining/sittingroom ,fully equipped. For us the icing on the cake was the open fire. The view across Clew Bay from the sittingroom is stunning, it was lovely to sit at breakfast and see the play of light and shadow across this magnificent stretch of water, ever changing always different. A truly special place, a balm to the soul. Castlebar, Westport,Achill only a half hours drive away.The new Greenway cycle track is yards away where you can cycle/walk to your hearts content.You couldn't ask for better

"Beautiful view on Clew Bay"

The house was in very good condition, well equipped and very clean. The house has beautiful views from the living room of the bay (Croagh Patrick at the other side of Clew Bay!) and is very close to the beach. The development is well maintained. It is a great location for those who enjoy walking and cycling. Newport and Westport are approx 30 mins.
The house is very good value for money. We loved every minute of our stay and will go back again.

I am delighted you enjoyed your stay in this wonderful although lesser known part of Western Ireland. We did a planned upgrade of the house contents the week following your stay which included brand new mattresses, kitchen appliances and added some interesting paintings. I hope you return to view the upgrade. It important to us that our guests enjoy good quality and comfortable fittings. Thank you

"Relaxation pure"

Brillant views from the dining room. The location was great-so convenient to get to the sandy beaches, Mulranny village and Daly's Pub which served the best pint of Guinness we have ever had and which we enjoyed while watching the tide come in. A visit to Kelly's butchers in Newport ensured that we had adequate supplies of the most delicious lamb, pork and sausages all served with a friendly smile. A must was the most enjoyable cycle from Mulranny to Achill-we hired the bikes from a very professional firm just 2 mins walk from house. The route was safe-most important when you have a baby on board. The requested cot and highchair was provided by the owner at no extra cost. We had a wonderful relaxing massage and my daughter had her hair done at the beautician connected to the hotel-bliss !! Booking the house was smooth and all acknowledgements prompt. Knock airport was only an hours drive away which was marvellously easy after the direct flight from Dusseldorf. We loved every minute of our stay BUT unfortunately we only booked for a week. We will definitely go back again but for an extended stay next time.

It's great to hear the local gems you discovered - guinness in Daly's pub and tasty meat in Newport - so it can be passed on to the next guests. Thank you. The direct flight from Dusseldorf in Germany to Knock airport really opens Mulranny conveniently to mainland Europe. We are delighted to know you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return. Bis spater (till later) - thats my best German!

"Bring a bike and explore the West best activity holiday for a range of ages and abilities"

We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday. We try to respond to holiday makers' suggestions on how to improve their stay and so installed Sky T.V. this year as it's a must for good T.v. reception in this area. We know value for money is important in these times and will continue to strive for good standards and reasonable prices. We hope you will return in the future. Thank you

"Peaceful, Relaxing family time together."

Stayed with 3 children and mother. Enjoyed the view from the house, as the living area was upstairs. We had all the facilities we needed. Not a lot of things to do unless you drove for 20-30 mins. We used the hotel next doors facilities for swimming and use of the kids clubs which was additional cost, but children really enjoyed that. Great for walking or cycling as the Greenway walking and cycling route was behind the house. Children enjoyed the walking to the beach (mum found this a bite of a climb back up to out elavated site) and brought their fishing nets. Keel beach at Achill Island was fantastic as was Westport house.
Was very relaxing and we has a great family time together.
Cant wait to go back.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay in our holiday house. Yes Mulranny is a quiet seaside village where super beach, walking quiet country lanes/mountains, hiring a bike, absorbing wonderful views,tennis, leisure facilities of the adjacent hotel/kids club are facilities available within 5 minute walk.
The return walk from the beach at the end of a fun day requires some energy reserves as it is uphill. The short drive to the beach might be worth considering to facilitate an easy return to your door step at the end of the day.
The Greenway cycle route has now been completed and extends from Westport to Achill taking in all the wonderful views of Clew Bay.
I am delighted you and your family enjoyed your holiday and hope you have lots of fun memories.
Thank you.
