A rural property in the West of Ireland with lake views and quirky character, conveniently located 40 minutes from Knock airport.
“A beautiful old period home modernized inside for comfort and convenience. We had everything we needed. We easily cooked several dinners while there. The bed was very comfortable. The bathtub wonderful! Though there was information in the Airbnb setup that we questioned whether we would have wifi, it was excellent! We really enjoyed our stay here.”
This listing is for a single bedroom. The house itself is a farmhouse which doesn't pretend to be a boutique destination. It has 7 comfortable clean, freshly decorated bedrooms. There's a kitchen, living room, dining room, and a large sunroom. Out back is a large raised deck. There's also a separate barbeque/party space in a wood next to the house, very atmospheric in the evening with fairy lights draped through the trees. We do emphasize the farm though with its lovely walks, and activities.
“Oh where will I start.... We stayed 3 nights with John. We made amazing memories. John and his girls went the extra mile to make sure we, and especially my daughter, were happy. We were able to use the kitchen and living room. Everything was very well equipped. John has a great knowledge about the wider area and gave us some great ideas of things to do. Coming back in the evenings felt like coming home. He brought my daughter out on the Quad checking out the land and animals. You can find horses, ponies, sheep as well as trails and quiet spots to have some peace. We made true friends for life while staying with John and the girls. My personal favourite was watching my daughter pony riding with Kate, Johns daughter. I was overwhelmed with the kindness and love she was treated. John, Kate, Grace and Emily, well and Charly the dog of Course, we will be back soon.”
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 blirdsong and rabbits in the garden. If there is no availability at Gleeson's Cottage on the Lake, check out our new listing; Gleeson's Cottage, Bohola.

“Beautiful cottage and Helen is a great host. We really appreciated the breakfast hamper and fire stuff all ready for us when we arrived. The cottage is lovely and clean and Helen had everything there for us that we needed! We stayed as a family and couldn't have asked for more. We also really enjoyed having our dog with us too. This is a perfect place if you want some peace and quiet. But also a great base for exploring Mayo.”
