The Experience

A few miles from the bonny town of Westport – with cafés, pubs and traditional Irish music (Matt Malloy from The Chieftains still plays here) – is Sea Meadow, a sleek and soothing space a short hop from the sea. Architects Paul Keogh and Rachael Childlow designed it with the stunning surroundings in mind; windows are everywhere, and views to the Clew Bay and Achill Island and the famous Croagh Patrick mountain; pilgrimages still happen in July. Walls inside and out are white, while simple hand-painted furniture and flagstone floors add to the sense of minimalist calm. The kitchen and living space are stocked with all you need and the dining table looks out to glorious countryside; bedrooms are full of light, and share neat shower rooms. There’s so much to do: a blue flag beach is mere minutes away and world famous waves thrill surfers beyond. There are stables, golf courses and walks galore and some fabulous eateries in Kilsallagh and Westport. Big groups can spread out to the cottage for six next door, or soak up the Irish sunshine in their own garden spaces. Lap up the majesty of your very own mountain.

Lovely modern house, with stunning views to the sea and the mountains. Very comfortable and very welcoming to come back to after a day of exploring.

Hazel, Reepham, Norfolk, UK

This is a great spot whether you climb Croagh Patrick mountain and explore Clew Bay or choose to simply appreciate it all from the comfort of an architect's holiday home. Sea Meadow's large windows let those views pour in to its social kitchen diner. The basics are in place to make this an ideal base to explore Mayo's coastline and mountains, or Killary, Louisburgh and Westport further afield.
