The Experience

You wander through these woods, weaving your way through the undergrowth – until suddenly you arrive at the shore. The magical bay will steal your heart away. Along the headland, castle turrets peer over trees: Alan’s birthplace. At high tide, the sea laps the garden; take the boat, spot a seal. At low tide, walk to an island, spot an otter. The Stoneys are a warm, humorous young family. The Wing, at one end of their superb modern house, has space, light, old fireplaces, a green and yellow kitchen with matching china and, upstairs, a deeply comfortable master bedroom. The Waterfall House stands alone, spreading its generous windows before a south-facing terrace, all in spanking new quality and, again, decorated for comfort and æsthetics with modern sofas and country antiques, thick rugs and good pictures. In the natural garden you will discover a little stream and an extraordinarily rare Chinese Fern Tree. The games room is for all, so is the tennis gear. Turf for fires is provided within reason; hot water is solar. An exceptional place… for fishing, boating, birding or just being.

My word what a find! This is one of the best Sawdays I have stayed. After 18 months of the COVID pandemic this was such an incredible haven to rest and relax in a beautiful home, with everything one could wish for: cosy lounge; fabulous kitchen ; master bedroom with a cracking view of crew bay; located close to Achill Island and Westport ! I would also have to say Louisa is probably one of the finest hosts I have ever come across! Bravo!

We had an absolutely wonderful time in this really unique home from home. This house is without doubt the best available house in the West. 5 star spacious, comfortable house, set in a gorgeous wood of Irish indigenous plants & trees. A short walk through the woods reveals a virtually private beach. Absolutely fantastic. Sincere thanks to the owners who made us so very welcome.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Louisa & Alan Stoney

  • Beautiful secluded tidal sandy beach two minutes walk from the house. Ideal for walking, wildlife and summer picnics.
  • Newly opened old railway cycle route 'Mulrany Greenway' runs from Westport to Achill Island - five minutes walk from the house. Ideal for cycling and walking. Stunning views and no traffic.
  • Fantastic local produce available - prize winning butcher in nearby Newport, Country market in Westport has a seasonal range of organic produce, home baking and crafts. Fresh fish available in Newport, Westport and Achill. Shellfish also available locally
  • Hugely enjoyable coastal 18 hole links course in nearby Mulranny. Challenging and fun.
  • Waterfall House has a lovely south facing terrace suitable for reading and relaxing - or for exercising small people. It is spacious and fenced in so you can relax while they run about. On a warm, sunny day you can enjoy your meals on the Terrace too.
  • The Annexe master bedroom has stunning views of Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick from its south facing balcony. You can watch the tide flooding and ebbing and enjoy the changes that this brings. You can also enjoy these views from the Terrace below.
