Perfect location to explore Mayo, Sligo and Galway with the Wild Atlantic way and come back to a cosy retreat after a long day's exploring.
“Birch Cottage is absolutely exquisite, warm, comfortable and homely. Katie & Richard are both very talented artists and the cottage is a superb gallery where we enjoyed contemplating the scenes and experiencing their magnificent art work as well as the Mayo countryside. The Cottage was a superb base for our little pilgrimage to Knock (10 mins away) and a haven of warmth, coziness and tranquility from the cold December weather. The daily scones were unexpected yet tasty and very welcome treats! We leave reluctantly today with fond memories of a great few days in Birch Cottage & a promise to return in the future!!!!”
Our cabin is warm and cosy. Enjoy the space, help yourself to veg from the garden, feed the farm animals, collect the eggs and explore all our area has to offer
“The Hideaway is a cosy little cabin tucked away on John's farm, it is a perfect base to explore the local area for a few days or as a stopover on your way down the Wild Atlantic Way. The cabin was spotless and every possible measure and precaution had been taken in relation to COVID. On arrival we were welcomed with some home baked treats (which were delicious) and the cabin was stocked with tea, coffee and a jug of fresh milk- an especially lovely touch. John has a wealth of knowledge on the local area and provided some detailed guides on particular sites of interest (we reccomend the Carrowkeel tombs). If we are ever in the part of the world again we will most definitely return! Thanks to John and his family.”
