  • Wonderful!!

    "Sean and his son Cathal were extremely helpful and accommodating, very nice people! My boyfriend was due to have knee surgery so the location of this unit was ideal. The bus stop is close, maybe 80 meters or so, there is a really great little market/grocery store that is even closer (just across the street) and a convenience store/gas station right next door. All that and the ocean is right in front of you! I would highly recommend any of Sean's units to anyone!"

  • A perfect spot for a quiet retreat

    "I vividly recommend staying at the cottage in Bantry. My stay there was enormously enjoyable. The house is spacious, airy, full of light and, above all, peaceful. As a writer, I just needed an inspiring place where to create and the cottage was perfect for that purpose. It was so relaxing to have a chance every day to face the Bantry Bay and feel a direct contact to nature, isolated from everything else. The private beach is so handy and pretty. The views from each room are excellent and the colours and sounds of the bay are breathtaking. The house is perfectly equipped. The owner and caretaker were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Bantry village is a three minute drive and from the house it is possible to take very pleasant walks. Other villages and towns are not far and can be easily explored. I am definitely going to stay in this cottage again."

  • Lisconnor County Claire Ireland

    "The house was perfect for our family of 6. Very close to Cliffs of Moher, Alwee Cave and the Burren. Very nice fire place. Washer and dryer very helpful when staying in Ireland for more than 2 weeks. The views were great and had clear nights for star gazing. Info packet was extremely helpful for shopping, dining out and attractions."

  • Just perfect to enjoy the Ring of Kerry!

    "House is much better than what it looks from the photos. Location is just perfect if you rather have spectacular views when you wake up in the morning than being at the heart of some town. Everything you can possibly need for an amazing Ring of Kerry experience is included in this house, including the owner's helpful and lovelyness, maps for treks, TV for a quiet evening and a warm comfortable bed to rest after hours of hiking. House is super warm and cosy. I just got back home but can't wait to go back there."

County Mayo Travel Tips

Getting to Mayo Vacation Rentals

The primary airport in the region is West Port Airport Knock. The airport is located in County May and within a 90-minute drive from all major towns and cities in the region. Several low-cost European airlines have regularly scheduled flights between London and other European hubs. If traveling from further afield, you could route via Dublin and from there get a domestic flight up to West Port Airport Knock. The region has an extensive bus network which is fairly reliable. If you are planning on doing a lot of sightseeing in the region, it’s probably best to hire a car as not all bus schedules offer frequent connections. Many people like to bike around the region so they can enjoy the outdoors while they visit the many sites and places of interest.

Attractions near Mayo Accommodation

Westport House is one of Mayo County’s most well known attractions. The house is a tribute to Grace O’Malley who was otherwise known as Granuaile the Pirate Queen of Connaught. During the 16th century, Granuaile ruled the seas and coastline in the west of Ireland. At the time, she was the leader of the O’Malley clan and believed to be at the root of all the rebellions that occurs in western Ireland during that time. She owned many castles in the region and Westport House was later built on the ruins of one of these sites. There is still a part of the original castle that can be viewed in the castle basement which is known as the dungeons. Westport House was built in the 18th century and designed by two well known architects of the time namely, Richard Cassels and James Wyatt. It sits on an expansive estate with immaculate gardens, terraces, a lake and magnificent views over the Atlantic Ocean. Part of the estate is the Country Park which is an entertaining amusement park. The park is open throughout the summer season and offers pirate ship rides, exploration of Treasure Island, slides, rides and play parks.

There are several historical sites, castles and museums in Mayo County that are well worth visiting. Guided tours can be arranged through one of the local information offices. Alternatively, you can explore on your own.
