Lovely Irish Cottage
I stayed at Grandad's Cottage with my family for a week in August. The property was exactly what we were looking for. Set approximately 1.5miles up a very quiet lane, the children were able to ride their bikes safely up and down the road. There was also plenty of room to play football in the parking area. A garage at the back of the house allowed us to store our bikes.
The kitchen was large with plenty of space and facilities and we were able to invite extra family members over for dinner.
During our stay we took advantage of the log burner and had a traditional peat fire using the ample peat made available to us.
The beds were all very comfortable and we all slept well during our stay. A very important factor with children!
We travelled to Belmullet, Ballina, Achill and Newport, spending time cycling, walking and playing on the beaches. The children learned to surf in Achill and loved it. We took a stunning cliff walk round Erris Head and played on the blue flag beaches. The people in the area were all very friendly and we ended up chatting with the locals on many occasions.
James and Beth, the property owners, were very helpful and approachable throughout.
Many Thanks for our stay.
Thank you for choosing Grandad's Cottage. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. It seems you were able to take advantage of many of the local activities and culture. We look forward to having you visit again!

Review of Grandad's cottage Belmullet &Banger Erris Co.Mayo, Ireland
I loved staying in this lovely cottage, the peace and quiet of the locality helped us all sleep peacefully. A beautiful house with a very homely atmosphere with all the mod cons that you have at home. There were five of us staying and we had no complaints of lack of space. The scenery is breathtaking and only a short car journey to the nearest towns, there are some amazing blue flag beaches nearby, great for a family day out. Plenty of shops, hotels, pubs and restaurants within driving distance. Would definitely recommend this lovely cottage to family and friends in the future.
Thank you for choosing at Grandad's Cottage. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable. It was good to hear you enjoyed the beaches and towns in the area.
