Self Catering Holiday Homes in Achill, Co. Mayo

Achill Island, (connected by land bridge) is situated off the West coast of Ireland in County Mayo. This lovely part of the county is known for its outstanding natural beauty, dramatic cliffs and 5 blue flag beaches and hidden coves. The rugged landscape lends itself perfectly to a wide variety of outdoor activities, including hillwalking up the islands two peaks, Slievemore and Croaghaun, sea angling in the Atlantic and Clew Bay, fresh water fishing in Achill’s many lakes, swimming from any of the stunning beaches and a variety of water sports.

The opening of the Great Western Greenway, a 42 km long track for cyclists, walkers and runners which follows the route of the former Achill to Westport railway line, has widened the possibilities for exploring this wonderful place. The Achill end of the Greenway starts at Achill Sound where our holiday homes are located. In 2011 the Great Western Greenway was awarded the EDEN European Destination of Excellence Award for Sustainable Tourism. Achill is less than an hour’s drive (50 km) from the vibrant town of Westport which has a wide selection of craft shops, traditional pubs and good restaurants.

The well known Croagh Patrick mountain is 8 km from Westport and poses a challenge to any walker, though the views from the top are spectacular! There is also a visitors’ centre at the foot of the mountain and adjacent to the National Famine Monument. Our self catering accommodation on Achill Island has the advantage of feeling wonderfully removed from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, with its wild landscape and yet has good local amenities, excellent activities on offer and is within easy reach of many of Mayo’s main towns such as Westport, Newport and Castlebar.
