Rented this property for two weeks for family vacation. Four families including 7 children age 4-11. Bedrooms and bathrooms sufficient for all. Conveniently located to Westport and area attractions. Extensive collection of books Xbox system. Kitchen a little small but workable washer dryer appreciated with children. Owner and property manager very helpful and cooperative. Entire group enjoyed our time in Ireland. I would rent again in future if opportunity arises.
This delightful house sits right on the Quay area within a walk or short drive of many wonderful opportunities. We could walk to several restaurants, including a fun 10-minute stroll over the hill to Cronin's Sheebeen with excellent food on the water. In addition, a handy grocery store was 5-10 minutes walk the other way. Being away from the congestion of downtown Westport was perfect. We could walk on the trail right behind the house into downtown and enjoy the bustle but then be back at the house for serene views over the water. We also appreciated the easy drive out toward Croagh Patrick and the terrific beaches out that direction. If you get sun, don't miss Silver Strand: what a treasure. The house itself is full of character (in a good way!) My kids were delighted to find a piano and guitar to indulge their musical passions, and hundreds of books are available to enjoy while you're there. The included "necessities" were far fewer than any of the other places we rented in Ireland such as paper towels, salt and pepper, garbage bags, dishwasher detergent, etc. I don't consider that a criticism, just a note that you may need to pick up a few of these items as we did. I didn't observe any other house in the Quay area that would match this one for location and we have nothing but very fond memories of our special week at Harbour Haven!
We really enjoyed staying here. The house was great. There were 13 of us and we had a lots of room to cook, eat together, and chill in the living room. Being so close to the Quay meant we could stroll to some restaurants and cafes. We also took the greenway walk into Westport a few times.
The sea is just across the road and it was lovely to see this every day and the birds that used it.
An excellent stay
The house has ample space with 8 bedrooms, well equipped and was perfect for a week with the extended family. It's located on Westport Harbour which is about 2k from the town centre but is well served with some great restaurants, cafe's and bars and perfect for a stroll on the Green way into town or walk along the coast. I would also recommend Cronnin's Sheebeen ( best fish and chips ever), the Towers ( surf and turf) and Creel café (midday coffee and cakes ). Big thanks to Margaret and the ever helpful Dot!
