Holiday Rental House
Tranquil retreat with all the comforts of home in the heart of the country, but only 15km from Castlebar and 10 from Foxford. A short walk down a grassy lane to lakeside beaches. Wake up to the sound of birdsong and rabbits in the garden. The Whooper swans are back on the lake for the winter. The cottage is very cosy and well equipped. All of our guests have loved it so far Lots to see in the local area and an ideal touring base for Mayo, Galway and Sligo. Loughs Cullin & Conn are just down the lane and are well known for fishing. Take a walk or drive in the Nephin Beag hills and take in the spectacular views of the lakes. ...Tranquil retreat with all the comforts of home in the heart of the country, but only 15km from Castlebar and 10 from Foxford.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in the heart of Mayo and is a great base from which to tour the area. From lakeside to mountain, the scenery is fantastic. Hillwalking or just a gentle stroll in the hills is just around the corner.
How to get there
Follow signs for Pontoon, then take the Pontoon to Castlebar road (R310). About 1.5km from Healy;s Hotel Hotel on the way to Castlebar, take the road to the left (L1717), signposted for Park. Then take the first left and the cottage is at the end of the lane on the left. Just enter F23 Y099 in Google Maps and you will get directions straight to the door.
