An Teach Beag
Townhouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
If you love anything vintage, you will love our newly refurbished town cottage. The house is very unique, it has the feel of a traditional cottage but have all the convenience of being in the heart of Westport. It comes with all you would expect to find in any modern home but have preserved a lot of the original features that I'm sure you will find charming. When the sun shines (and occasionally it does) dine outside in the garden that overlooks Westport town. Make the most of the award winning cycle track The Great Western Greenway if you choose to bring your own bicycle you can store them in a secure shed in the garden. It has the convenience of on street parking. This little house may be small in size but it has enormous character.

The North West Ireland region
There is just so much to do and see in North West Ireland and the area around Westport abounds with fascinating places to visit. The mountains, beaches and woodlands are just part of the stunning natural beauty that greets the visitor to Westport. Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holy mountain, is only a few kilometres from Westport. Several of Clew Bay's islands are a short ferry ride or drive from Westport, making them perfect for a day or afternoon out with the whole family. Many of the towns and villages nearby have fascinating histories, both ancient and more recent, as well as walks and other opportunities for amusement. An informative and engaging collection of exhibits regarding rural life awaits the visitor to the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life, just half an hour's drive east of Westport. This is the only part of the National Museum of Ireland located outside the Dublin area.
There are literally hundreds of things to do in Westport.

"Amazing little house!"
Beautifully restored house with so many lovely details and care put into it. A perfect place to stay. Right in the centre of Westport with lovely views over the town. Close to Greenway which is a great walk and takes you to the quays. Westport is a fabulous place to be with a real magic feel and staying in An Teach Beag just made it even better! Lana very kind and helpful with any queries. Will definitely be returning again.

"Perfect cottage for two"
We could not fault this property at all. It was absolutely perfect. The cottage has been refurbished to a high standard, and you get the feeling that every item of furniture/decoration has been carefully thought about. Lana was extremely welcoming and easy to deal with, she really had thought of everything. The cottage is in a great situation, just a few minutes walk from the town centre. We were blessed with fabulous weather for our visit in July,so we ate in the garden every evening, looking down into the town. As other reviewers have said it is perfect for two, could be a little cramped for anymore than that. We loved it here and would definitely come back.

"Perfect vintage inspired house!"
Beautiful little house in a perfect location. My husband, toddler and I spent 12 days here, perfect amount of space, lovely garden, and everything you would need from kitchen appliances and BBQ to guide books for the area. The location was excellent, just a 2 minute walk from the town! I would definitely recommend An Teach Beag!

"A Perfect Week in a Perfect House"
We had a wonderful week in this little house. It was perfect for the two of us and had everything we needed. The house has been sympathetically renovated to a very high standard and the fixtures and fittings are all of the best quality. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is very well fitted and we loved spending time in such a beautiful environment. We were blessed with some sunny days, so, as well as enjoying the house itself, we sat out on the terrace overlooking the gorgeous garden and the roofs of Westport.
Westport is a lovely town in which to wander and, just at the bottom of the hill, tucked away is a Supervalu supermarket - easily walkable. There's a Lidl and a Tesco too, just a little further away. We heard that the local greengrocer was very good, too.
The house makes an excellent base for exploring Mayo and it was lovely to come back to at the end of a day's drive . Being an O'Malley myself, I was on the Granuaile trail, so we sought out her castles and went on the ferry over to the beautiful Clare Island and drove over to Achill Island - the Atlantic drive is spectacular. The Ballycroy National Park was well worth the drive and the landscape magical. Mayo's loughs are set among some majestic scenery too. We used the bikes provided at the house to ride to Westport quay on just a small stretch of the Great Western Greenway, which is a very short ride from the house.
I would highly recommend An Teach Beag for a couple wishing to enjoy Westport and explore Mayo.
Thank you kathleen for taking the time to write a review on the hosue. It really does help people when trying to choose accommodation. Kind regards
