Self Catering Holiday Homes on Achill Island County Mayo
The rugged landscape on Achill Island lends itself perfectly to a wide variety of outdoor activities. Hike the islands two peaks Slievemore and Croaghaun, go sea angling in Clew Bay or fresh water fishing in Achill Isalnd many lakes.
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 Island is less than an hour’s drive (50 km) from the vibrant and colourful town of Westport which has a wide selection of craft shops, traditional pubs and excellent restaurants. The well known Croagh Patrick mountain is 8km from Westport and poses a challenge to any walker, plus the views from the top are spectacular over Clew Bay and beyond! 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.
