One small pet welcome. Extra Details... Mayo is a lightly populated, largely rural county, lending itself ideally for walking. The scenery is spectacular and the variety of terrain interesting - some areas are level and easygoing, ideal for strollers, while the hills, mountains and bogs offer a stiff challenge to the accomplished walker. Inland the lakes and hills compete for attention while the rugged coastline has magnificent cliff scenery and an excellent selection of sandy beaches. The landscape will capture your heart and there is a variety of things to do and places to visit, from centuries old ruins to historic houses. You can walk in the countryside, fish, golf, horse ride, sail or cruise on the waterways - whatever your interest is, you will be sure to enjoy it in the West of Ireland. History comes alive at the world famous Ceide Fields near Ballycastle in North Mayo, at the Foxford Woollen Mills, Hennigan's Heritage Farm and the new National Museum of Ireland's Museum of Country Life, which opened in the autumn 2001 just outside Castlebar, the county town. Quite Simply Mayo is amazing! Other amenities in the area are: Knock Shrine 2 miles, Knock Airport 10miles and Ballintubber Abbey just outside Ballinrobe. The owner will have constant supply of free-range eggs from farm and fresh homegrown vegetables for guests. Walking - Easy on site. Traditional Music, Cycling, Childrens Playground 2 miles. Walking - Hill 3 miles. Fishing - Lake, Horse riding 4 miles. Forest walks 5 miles. Golf, Swimming Pool 7 miles. More

Lovely, charming cottage - and spacious. In a quiet, secluded country setting. If you are looking to retreat from the busy world for some down time, this is the place. Sheila and Kieran were very nice and helpful and knowledgeable about local interests. We will be back!

We had a lovely stay at Finn’s cottage with spacious rooms and common areas. The owners were very helpful and hospitable. When we arrived we had fresh scones made just for us! A very short drive to Knock, local restaurants, and grocery store. I would recommend this for a stay for a larger group (we had three, but could fit more) that wants an authentic Ireland country feel. The chickens were great to have so near to visit and for the eggs. To our delight, a local kitty came to the window looking for a treat as well!

We came to Finn's Cottage in August to participate in the annual novena to Our Lady of Knock. We were delighted with the cottage, which was spacious, cozy, convenient, and in a lovely countryside location. Sheila had baked fresh scones for us and provided fresh eggs. It was a short drive to a local town for groceries, bank, restaurants, etc. If you like being in a quiet, country setting with ready access to small towns and many options for day trips to larger cities, historic sites, the beautiful West Coast of Ireland, you will love this! Very reasonably priced.

We really enjoyed our stay at Finn Cottage. Our children felt very relaxed and at home. They loved the chickens, ducks and of course Finn the dog. The complimentary eggs were very tasty too. The kitchen is well equipped and cottage is comfortable and cosy. The cottage was great value for money and a fantastic location to access the greenway, Achill, museums and the lovely towns and villages of Mayo. Sheila is a discreet landlady but ready to help in anyway she can at the drop of a hat, thank you Sheila. We hope to return in the future. The Dearey family

Er was iets fout gegaan met de boeking van Finns cottage in Claremorris Ierkand, maar we kregen van de eigenaresse een ander aanbod, namelijk Nans thatched cottage in Bohola. Een prachtige oude Ierse cottage, volledig gemoderniseerd, maar de sfeer is bewaard gebleven. Alle rust, achteraf gelegen, maar vlakbij de uitvalsweg. Schoon, ruim, van alle gemakken voorzien!
