Welcome to our cosy cottage at the base of Slievemore, Dugort, Achill Island. We have views of the Minaun Cliffs, the tallest cliffs in Ireland and the sea in the distance. We are deep in the countryside, a short walk from Silver Strand beach, approximately 1km away. A number of other Blue Flag beaches, together with the archaeological deserted village, aquarium, active water sports and horse riding are all a short distance away. Great restaurants like The Cottage, Pure Magic and The Strand Hotel are all located in Dugort, about 1km from our home. Keel is a short drive.
Slievemore is a special place, often with the clouds sitting low giving a sense of tranquillity and peace. The only noise you will hear are the resident sheep which freely roam around the house. Don't be surprised if they are waiting at the front door on your arrival or peeping in the window in the morning.

We have been renovating through the winter and this is now the first letting of our home on airbnb.

The space
Our home is one of a small number of holiday cottages situated at the base of Slievemore. Slievmore dominates the area and there are beautiful views of it towering over our house. The colours of the mountain change all the time, depending on the time of day or the weather. We are but a short walk to Silver Strand, our favourite beach on the island.

Our home is bright and airy with exposed timber floorboards and warm muted colours. Cushions, throws and candles are dotted around. Wifi is available, free of charge. The cottage comprises a kitchen with dining table to seat 10, sitting room with open fire and direct access onto the patio. A lovely new kitchen, with all new appliances, has been installed over the winter. There are views of Minaun Cliffs and Keel in the distance.

The sitting room (with flat screen smart TV, dvd player and many dvds) opens onto a second living space which we use as a playroom/den. It is separate from, but directly connected to the sitting room. There are a number of toys, board games, books (for both adults and children) in this room, which you are welcome to use, as long as you treat them well. There is also a full size football table in this room. The fold-up single bed can be set up here, if needed. There are large bean bags for lounging on. There is also a small workspace in this room. A sliding door gives some privacy, if needed.

The two bedrooms are comfortable and welcoming, with new beds and good quality bedding. The master bedroom has a king size bed. We also have a new, good quality single fold-up bed and a travel baby cot. The second bedroom has a triple bunkbed- double on bottom with single on top. Our en-suite has just been completely renovated and upgraded and includes an electric shower. There are beautiful views of Slievemore and the sea in the distance from our master bedroom, which is dual aspect.
