The hosts Jim & Marie gave us a lot of information about places to visit -it's a great base to explore County Mayo. The highlight of this place for us is the view - it is outstanding and thanks to the fickle Irish weather, the view of Clew Bay was always changing. It's set back on a side road so it is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. The home is clean, well equipped, spacious and the kitchen is well stocked, which allowed us to buy groceries and eat at home every night. Highlights of our day trips included Cong, Achilles Island, and Doolough Bay. Also recommend a visit to Stauton's Pub around 5 or 6 pm, which is very close -very friendly locals and live music.

The accommodation is really excellent offering a beautiful setting, great road connections and outstanding facilities. Also welcome was access to the Hotel's facilities. The only item that was inconvenient was the lack of wi-fi in the Lakeside Lodges. If we wanted to use that, we had to go up to the Hotel. I believe they are intending to install wi-fi in the future. We had a very successful - yet very busy week, with people coming and going - and the lodge was quite superb in giving us a very pleasant base for all that - with the best bed we've ever encountered in holiday accommodation to help get a great night's sleep at the end of a busy day. Thoroughly recommended - but I recommend you check-out the prices offered on HomeAway before you book elsewhere.
