Property description

Waterfall Cottage is a completely unique vacation rental property at the heart of the spectacular Delphi Valley in south west Mayo, Ireland - and directly on the beautiful Wild Atlantic Way.

This extraordinarily scenic area is on the northern fringe of the beautiful Connemara region and just over the border from county Galway. Killary Fjord is less than two miles away and the nearest village is the pretty seaside hamlet of Leenane, Co Galway.

Surrounded by one of Ireland’s largest Special Areas for Conservation and in a National Heritage Area, the four-bedroom holiday home overlooks a pristine river in a stunning wilderness setting.

A dream holiday cottage that was formerly part of the famous Delphi estate, this deceptively large rental property is a reconstruction and extension of two 19th century cottages, merged into one home of great character.

There are no other buildings in sight.

Clad in local stone, roofed with traditional Welsh slates and fully insulated to modern standards, Waterfall Cottage has all the charm of a period property with all the benefits of modern reconstruction.

The cottage sleeps eight people in great comfort and an extra two bunk beds can be added on request.

There are four principal bedrooms (three with one large bed and one with twin single beds), plus an optional extra bunk room. There are three bathrooms, one en-suite with the master bedroom.

There’s a modern kitchen and a large day room equipped with satellite TV, wi-fi, an eclectic library and a DVD player. The piece de resistance is the spectacular 440 sq. ft. lower level River Room with its terrace right beside the river, offering amazing views over the water to the wild scenery beyond.

The cottage has oil-fired underfloor heating and a large wood-burning stove.

Close to excellent salmon and trout fishing and surrounded by popular hillwalking trails, Waterfall Cottage is just 20 miles from the pretty Georgian town of Westport with its championship golf course, the spectacular Westport House and a range of interesting shops.

With a spa just a mile away, and with horse-riding on beautiful sandy beaches, golf, surfing, scuba diving, fly-fishing and sea fishing all available in the area, there are plenty of activity options.

The nearest village, Leenane in County Galway, is eight miles to the south-east and the small town of Louisburgh is eleven miles to the north. The beautiful Killary Fjord is just two miles away and there are a number of spectacular sandy beaches, some good for surfing, within a short drive of the property.

The Delphi Valley and Doologh Pass are among the last truly unspoilt areas of western Europe and represent a nature lover’s paradise. Otters, pine martens, badgers, peregrines and mountain hares are regularly sighted and the river beside the property is home to many dippers and the occasional kingfisher.

For basic food shopping, the essentials can be bought from the village store in Leenane, where petrol is also available. Louisburgh has a small supermarket and in Westport there are two large supermarkets and many other shops.

This is a dream hideaway with easy access to all the spectacular scenery of Connemara and Mayo.

Waterfall Cottage is just 90 minutes from Knock International airport, 2.5 hours from Shannon and 3.5 hours from Dublin. Galway city is just over an hour away.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Former financial journalist who fell in love with this part of Ireland and bought the derelict Delphi Lodge and 1,000 acre estate in 1986. With the lodge and many cottages now fully restored, and with Delphi Lodge recognised as Ireland's most famous fishing lodge, Mantle now owns and runs a fishing lodge in the Bahamas (called the Delphi Club) but he has kept Waterfall Cottage for family use and for others to enjoy this exceptional Irish valley.

Why the Owner Chose Mayo, Co. Mayo, Ireland:
Extraordinarily beautiful wilderness location.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
No other building in sight. Right beside pristine salmon river. Spectacular lower floor river room. One of the last unspoilt parts of Europe. Fly-fisher's paradise.
