Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 2 miles. Coast 2 mins walk. Note: This property is surrounded by farmland, so pets must be kept under strict control. Note: Though all ground floor, there is a step between the kitchen and hall, which leads to the bathroom. Region: The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores. Town: At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but water sports are always easy to find.

Total Bliss at Sound Cottage
Just home from a week in this fabulous cottage. Everything you need is at hand and the cottage is a wonderful mix of character and modern facilities. Michael and Mary who look after the cottage are very helpful and at hand if needed. The location is fantastic and the views are breath taking. Visitors books are a mine of information along with the file of things to do. House is warm all the time because of timed heating.

Very peaceful
Recently stayed here at Sound cottage for a week. Fantastic views all round views of sea and the mountains and shore line at the bottom of where garden ends. A very nice Irish cottage cottage warm and cosy and a perfect place to to relax and let your mind wonder. The donkeys Mary and Shelia love a carrot or an apple. Hope to visit again very soon great place.

Fabulous relaxing family holiday.
Myself, husband and two daughters aged 11 and 14 had a fantasy holiday in Sound Cottage this August. The Cottages location makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere and completely secluded however the small town is only a five min drive away where there is a supermarket, pubs, cafe, restaurant and other shops. There is lots todo on Achill from walking, bike riding we hired bikes and cycled the greenway which we all enjoyed, lots of water sports and plenty of pubs to relaxing in after a busy day. Both my girls had a fab time and enjoyed walking down to the shore to explore, having the donkeys in the field was a real treat we all loved feeding them carrots and petting them. The pictures are of the view from the cottage door, girls on the shore and the lovey donkeys. We can’t wait to return.

Perfect Isolation
We spent 4 nights on Achill Island earlier this year for my birthday... just me, my wife and our dog. It was perfect. We travelled to Achill with the intention of staying in the cottage the entire time (except for dog walks), so we're probably not the best to speak on the activities available on the island. We simply wanted somewhere with no internet, no computers and no hassle. We brought all of our food for the 4 days with us, but I believe there is a supermarket within 1 mile of the cottage. The cottages location was perfect. Out on its own peninsula, we weren't bothered by anyone for the 4 days. Breakfast outside by the water every morning in privacy, midnight walks with the dog in privacy. The multi-fuel stove was great and there was enough fuel supplied for one full day of burning (9am through to midnight). We brought fuel with us for the other days. Honestly, I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back.
