A STROLL OR MOUNTAIN WALK - Walking the quiet back roads from Mulranny are many delightful sandy coves to be discovered and spot the local castle. Mulranny is ideal for walking with its marked looped trails and cliff walks providing great photo opportunities. The fine Nephin mountains behind reward the more serious walker. Croagh Patrick mountain beckons but please do not underestimate this climb. For the less energetic take a look at the dramatic National Famine monument at the base of Croagh Patrick and have a coffee in the cafe.

Bicycles, Kids' tandems and buggy trailers can be hired. It can be done in sections by arrangement with the local bicycle hire company which will pick you up - no need to cycle the return journey.

Location description from owner

The Western Ireland region

Mayo's beautiful landscape and seascape will enthrall.It is a part of the famous Wild Atlantic Way where beautiful beaches, superb Atlantic headlands and cliffs, heritage sites, local traditional music sessions and Connemara area can be experienced. Its wilderness is beautiful into which you can escape by walking the narrow lanes that lead around the maze of lakes to Lough Furnace.Or take a fascinating boat trip into inner Clew Bay following the footsteps of the legendary pirate queen Grace o' Malley to her castle where she lived for many years.

The Blue flag beach and many coves in sight of Mulranny village and an indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi in hotel next door provide hours of fun for all the family. Achill island (half hour drive) and its wild landscape gives glimpses of the harsh living in the ruins of 'The Deserted Village'.

The 'Ceide Fields' in Ballycastle N.W. Mayo is the most extensive stone age monument in the world

Castlebar town houses the Royal Theatre and the Museum of Country Life - the only branch of the National Museum outside Dublin. Ballintubber Abbey dates back to the 13th century.

Westport House Adventure park is packed with family fun with its thrill rides, slippery dip slide, magical train journey and history that comes alive in the spooky dungeons at the bottom of the old house.

Genealogy is an important offering in the Westport heritage centre as it reflects the out pouring of emigrants to England and America in the famine years. The pilgrim mountain of Croagh Patrick with a chapel at the summit is a very energetic climb and inspires the soul with views of Clew Bay and its myriad of islands. Guide can be booked in advance.

Take a cruise around Ireland's only fjord in beautiful Killary harbour. No sea sickness guaranteed. Food is served on board. Bar B que cruises are also available. Children go free at weekends.

A day's outing from Mulranny to Clifden takes in the Connemara National Park, Kylemore Abbey and Gardens and the Beautiful Sky road. The Connemara National Park is well worth a half or full day's visit for its beautiful walks and excellent interpretation centre.

“Clean, comfortable, warm and fantastic views.”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2014

A very enjoyable stay, we were welcomed by Lily the housekeeper who was very friendly and helpful. The house is very cosy, clean, comfortable and warm. Fantastic views from the upstairs living area.

“Breathtaking Panorama from a beautiful Holiday House”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2014

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”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2014

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”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2013

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”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2013

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”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2012

All good and plenty to do. The view from the house is beautiful. The cycleway runs right behind the house so theres no need to worry about the children because there are no cars or traffic to deal with.

“Peaceful, Relaxing family time together.”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2011

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.
