Achill Island, Co. Mayo
A traditional cottage, with stunning views, modernised and well furnished and standing in its own large grounds. Ideally situated above the centre of the quiet village of Dooega, overlooking the beach and harbour, facing south, with views to the Atlantic Drive, Clew Bay, Clare Island and mountains and islands beyond. You can walk through the meadow below and be on the beautiful Blue Flag beach in a few minutes or stroll to the river to fish for brown trout. Behind is the mountain of Minaun, from the top of which you can see right across the rest of the island.
Micky’s Bar (at Lavelle’s Seaside House) is only a short walk away. The main shopping centre is at Achill Sound (14kms) but there is a smaller shop, garage and pub at 6kms.
Activities available on the island include all kinds of surfing, diving and other water sports, walking, golf and cycling, painting, archaeology, birdwatching, traditional music sessions and multiple opportunities for photography. Or you can just relax, slow down and enjoy the peace and the beauty of Achill.
