“Fantastic cottage in an idyllic setting” We took our 3 kids to stay for a week in Tom's cottage and wow what a spot!
Rosemary and Declan were fantastic hosts, they met us showed us around and left us contact details. They had left us some essentials, some treats and even put together some colouring books, craft items and toys for the kids.
The cottage itself is beautiful, retaining its authenticity but also fully equipped in terms of the practical things such as washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, shower, oil heating etc. There is ample room with beds for at least 5 in the 2 bedrooms and of course the bed in the alcove in the living room which was a big hit with the kids.
The items and pictures on display around the place relating to the cottage and it's history really help you to get a feel for the place. Leaning over the half door with a pint of the black stuff of an evening looking out at the bay is definitely something I could get used to!
The setting is unbelievable; the cottage sits in a large garden where the kids can run around safely, overlooking Rosmoney pier and Clew Bay beyond. It is far enough removed from Westport town to be an escape but close enough that you can nip in and get your milk and newspaper in the morning. There are plenty of places for a day out in the vicinity if you feel the need to get out and about, Westport house is a great spot and is just on the road into town.
We all had a great time at Tom's Cottage and would highly recommend it, we will definitely be back again!
“Perfect house for wet weather!!” We were there for a family get together ( for the senior members of the family)! and although the weather which was mostly chucking it down curtailed some of our expeditions we managed some local walks and great scenic drives, which were very close. We also spent a dry afternoon in Westport town and also the Quay area which was very impressive. There is a good restaurant in easy walking distance and the house itself was so comfortable and warm that we were happy to sit in comfort and talk and have the odd glass or two of vino!! The house was also exceptionally clean and very spacious, and very well equipped. The owner met us on arrival and showed us how everything worked and was very helpful.
