Louisburgh cottage description

Situated in Kilsallagh Lower, just a 15 minute drive to Westport (Ireland's Tidiest Town, 2001, 2006, 2008) and about 10 minutes from Louisburgh, this comfortable vacation home features privacy, every comfort and convenience, and the certainty of breathtaking views and landscape. The two bedrooms provide ample space and accommodation for 7, with provision made for more. There is one full bathroom and a large en suite off the master bedroom. Every amenity is included: washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher, gas and electric range, gas fireplace, hair appliances, satellite TV and DVD player. With seven acres, much of it trees, surrounding the house, you can enjoy the privacy of the property, or hike the countryside, or to beaches nearby. As the house overlooks Clew Bay, sunsets here are nothing short of spectacular, especially on long summer nights when the light can linger indefinitely. Ard Muire is the perfect setting for an unforgettable Irish holiday.

                              Why Louisburgh:
                              My father purchased this property some time in the 1980s, but didn't build on it until 1992. He had built a house in Cloonagh, closer in toward Westport and, though it is a beautiful, enchanted part of Westport, he just couldn't forget the gorgeous view over Clew Bay from the Kilsallagh property, He started work on this house in Kilsallagh Lower while still living - on holidays, anyway - in Cloonagh. Truly, I doubt there is another view quite as beautiful many places in the world.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              We'll defer to the English novelist, William Makepeace Thackeray who visited Westport in 1842, and wrote of the area, 'The most beautiful view I ever saw in the World. It forms an event in one's life to have seen that place so beautiful and so unlike other beauties that I know of. Were such beauties lying on English shores it would be a World's wonder perhaps, if it were on the Mediterranean or Baltic, English travellers would flock to it by hundreds. Why not come and see it in Ireland!' Add to this that Westport is County Mayo's premier tourist destination, and considered one of the liveliest and most charming towns in the West of Ireland, and the visitor can be assured of the best in scenery, food, entertainment, attractions, craic and fond memories.
