Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Mayo - Oyster Bay House

Luxury self-catering house

Welcome home! This luxurious property is situated on the Dawros peninsula with panoramic views over Ballinakill Bay and Leitir Hill. A stunning location and perfect for the growing family or the romantic couple alike, the property has four bedrooms, three upstairs with en-suite bathrooms and one downstairs. The sitting room is cosy and warm so why not put your feet up, sit back, relax, play games or watch a film. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary mod cons to make your holiday experience perfect. Feel like a hot bath after a day out hill-walking? Get the bath salts out and zone out in the main bathroom. Other features include an open, airy hallway, enclosed garden with picnic facilities. It is right beside the sea and therefore easy access to launch boats or go swimming. Oyster Bay House is close to Letterfrack, the nearest village where one can pick up supplies and the entrance to Connemara National Park. Kylemore Abbey is 4 miles away and Clifden is 20 minutes.

Connemara National Park: Spend a day walking up to the top of Diamond Hill. With a designated walking path to the very top, this is one very accessible climb. It takes about two and a half hours in total but we know some people who can run to the top in 40 minutes! The park centre also has visual displays, lots of tourist information and an audio-visual show as well as Connemara Ponies.

Kylemore Abbey: Kylemore Abbey is picture postcard material and is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Ireland. Once a romantic getaway for a Manchester businessman, Mitchell Henry, it was taken over by the Benedictine Order of Nuns and the castle was turned into an international boarding school for girls. In 2010, the school was closed down. The abbey is open during the year and has a cafe/teashop, craft shop and many other attractions including The Gothic Church. If you like walking, there are plenty of trails and walks.

Clifden: Clifden is the capital of Connemara and a tourist hotspot during the summer months. Things calm down after Clifden Community Arts Week and the town returns to quiet with bursts of activity during bank holiday weekends and Easter.

Best place to eat in Clifden (in our opinion) is Mitchell's on Market Street. Great variety and good value if you get in for the early bird menu! Their seafood chowder is fantastic.

Best coffee has to be at the Steam Cafe at the Station House Courtyard but Upstairs Downstairs gives it a run for its money as well with some great baked goods and sandwiches.

Merveilleux séjour!!

  • 5 of 5

Maison vraiment très agréable, située proche de la mer dans un paysage somptueux et tres calme . Pour ceux qui recherchent la tranquillité et le dépaysement ne pas hésiter!!

L'intérieur est très spacieux, propre, bien aménagé et confortable, tout pour passer un séjour agréable et reposant. Vous pourrez voir jouer dans le jardin les lapins le matin , si vous vous levez tot.

Je recommande vraiment cette charmante demeure aux propriétaires également charmants.

En un mot séjour très réussi et à refaire!!

Tolle ruhige Gegend, die zum erkunden einlädt.

  • 3 of 5

Die Lage des Hauses, lädt zum erkunden und wandern ein. Der gegenüberliegende Berg sollte unbedingt bestiegen werden. Er bietet eine tolle Sicht über die gesamte Oyster Bay. Zusätzlich würde ich unbedingt empfehlen Kylemore Abbey anzuschauen und den Connemara National Park, der 3 verschieden schwierige Wanderungen und einen tollen Blick bietet. Zum Kleinigkeiten einkaufen reicht Letterfrack aus. Wer aber mehr Auswahl haben möchte, sollte nach Clifden reisen. Dort gibt es verschiedene Supermärkte( Supervalu etc.) und auch noch einige Restaurants und Pubs.

Zum Haus: Vielleicht sollte man sagen, dass einige Bilder schon sehr viel älter sind und nicht mehr mit der aktuellen Ansicht übereinstimmen. Zumal es keine Parkmöglichkeit, wie beschrieben, auf der Strasse gibt. Zum nächsten Strand sind es ca. 6 km Fussweg! So gibt es eine recht hohe Hecke rundherum und ein Haus direkt dahinter, wo der Vermieter wohnt. Auch sollte man die Angaben von der Inneneinrichtung und dem Interieur überarbeiten. So hat es verschiedene Sachen nicht, wie zum Beispiel Musikbibliothek, Safe, Videorekorder, Stereoanlage, Strandhandtücher und auch draussen die 8 Gartenstühle. Die Mikrowelle war defekt und die gesamte Küche war doch recht unsauber. Die beiden Bratpfannen sollte man mal wieder austauschen und die Mikrowelle ersetzen. Alles in allem hat es trotzdem sehr viel Platz. Der Vermieter sollte allerdings, die Bilder aktualisieren und dem Haus ein wenig mehr Zuneigung zukommen lassen, damit man nicht ein bisschen enttäuscht ist , wenn man direkt da ist.

Oyster Bay House is situated just outside Letterfrack on the road to Renvyle. It is a very quiet off the beaten track location but close by, there are lots of amenities for you to enjoy. A bit of lunch and a walk around the grounds. Kylemore Abbey is 5 miles away. Hill-walking for the day? Pay a visit to Connemara National Park. Afternoon tea? Renvyle House Hotel is 7 miles away. Interested in scuba diving. Scuba Dive West is situated beside the world famous Glassilaun Beach, roughly 7 miles away. Clifden, the capital of Connemara is a 20 minute drive.

Golf: With views of the Twelve Bens mountain range and the swirling Atlantic Ocean, the Connemara landscape serves as a dramatic backdrop to the championship golf links at Connemara Golf Club. More information can be found on their website -

This particular golf course is roughly 15 miles from Oyster Bay House.
