“Amazing House”

Just back from an extended weekend trip at this amazing house. Only 100meters from the beach, a beautiful view of the sea and also Croagh Patrick. We were a group of 12 friends and we all had loads of space. Its newly renovated to a very high standard. Showers fantastic. Kitchen had everything we wanted (we had our meals in the house each evening) The owner Michael was so nice, even had left us milk and cake when we arrived in case we were hungry. There even was a special outdoor shower for those surfing on the beech etc. We got a mini bus taxi into Westport twice and it was only about a 10 min journey. Only 3-5 min car journey to the car park for Croagh Patrick. Would love to come back for another visit!

Avalon is situated in a beautiful place with stunning views all around. The property is very spacious and has all mod cons. There were 10 in our group and it never felt crowded. If you can tear yourself away from the comfort and scenic views from the property itself; then Westport is only a short drive and Loisburgh even closer. The Delphi pass is stunning mountain scenery and there are plenty of small unspoilt bays all around the local coast. Great for walks and wildlife. Plenty of places to enjoy a meal out. Michael the owner of the property has done everything to make this a charming and memorable property which is a true delight. A week is not long enough and you will definitely be back again wanting more as we will be!

This is a wonderful house in a magical location overlooking Clew Bay with direct access to Old Head beach which we used for long walks every day.

12 of us stayed in the house and due to its size and layout it never seemed over crowded. This was enhanced by the open plan aspect and large panoramic windows which seemed to bring the outside in.

Dealing with the owner was a pleasure. He and his representatives in Lousiburgh ensured that we all had a fabulous holiday. Nothing was too much trouble.

“excellently appointed holiday house with fantastic views”

We had a great time staying in Avalon. The house was spacious and very light and airy. It was good to have plenty of living space and bathrooms so we weren't all on top of each other - ideal for 6 adults and 1 teenager. It would still feel spacious if we had had a full house. The wifi was a boon - especially for the younger member of the family! Avalon was well maintained, furnished and equipped.
There is no better place than Old Head beach, and to have the panoramic and unspoilt view from the window and a very short walk onto the sand, made Avalon an extra special place to relax, unwind and socialise.
Thank you - the memory of our stay is still keeping us going,
