Cashel Schoolhouse description

Holiday home
Cashel Schoolhouse is an unusual holiday home two miles from Swinford in County Mayo. The cottage has two twin rooms, one with en-suite shower room, a double with en-suite shower room and a single. There is a family bathroom, a kitchen with dining area, utility, and a sitting room with open fire and a raised seating area with additional comfy seating for two. Outside is ample off road parking, and gardens to the rear with furniture and a BBQ. Cashel Schoolhouse makes a great family base for enjoying the amenities of Swinford, the town of Westport, the beauty of Croagh Patrick and the scenery of Clew Bay.

The market town of Swinford in County Mayo is located on a tributary of the River Moy, well known for its fishing waters which include the lakes of Conn and Cullin, and the Callow lakes with their abundance of brown trout. Swinford is located approximately 11 miles from Knock International Airport and is well known as being home to one of Mayo's largest summer festivals which features ceilidh dancing, pageantry and heritage displays which portray the traditions of East Mayo. A nine hole golf course, pony trekking and nature walks are all on offer here, and there is a lively local nightlife in the town's pubs which feature traditional live Irish music. Walk a short distance out of the town and you'll discover archaeological sites where many artefacts have been discovered. Mayo's other visitor attractions include Ceide Fields, Croagh Patrick, and the Foxford Woollen Mills.

The West of Ireland conjures up many images; thatched, whitewashed cottages, a flock of sheep on a narrow road, an emerald green field with a stone wall, or the Atlantic waves crashing into towering cliffs and rocky shores.

The property was perfect, with lots of character and plenty of space for children to move around. The owners were extremely accommodating and made our stay very pleasurable. I have already recommended to several of my family and friends.

A very comfortable property with lots of lounge space for relaxation and socialising. It is a historically interesting building and many of the original features can still be discerned. Very friendly owner for whom nothing was too much trouble. Would happily return on another occasion.
