The Thatched Cottage is a traditional-style Irish cottage set on the outskirts of the sleepy hamlet of Drummin, 10 miles from Westport in County Mayo. Dating back over 200 years the cottage has a number of quirky features, which add to its charm and appeal, including uneven and sloping floors, low-height door frames and a traditional Irish fireplace complete with woodburner. The property provides compact, simple but comfortable accommodation with an open plan living area, cosy family bedroom and additional smaller bedroom. Outside, the lawned garden with seating offers views of the nearby mountains, while excellent walking and hiking are available from the door. Nearby Westport is an official access point for the award-winning off road cycling and walking trail, Great Western Greenway. This traffic-free route runs between Westport and Achill Island along the route of the old railway line, and enjoys some magnificent scenery including along the Clew Bay coastline. The Thatched Cottage provides lovely character accommodation in a pleasant rural area, and is a perfect base for the Great Western Greenway.
