Cregan Cottage description

Holiday home
Cregan Cottage is a charming single storey cottage in Drumagh, near Swinford. The cottage has two double bedrooms and a single bedroom. There is a family bathroom, and a WC in the external utility room. The living area is open plan, with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area with solid-fuel stove. Outside is off road parking for four cars, and attractive gardens including lawn, patio, water feature, herb garden and fruit trees. Cregan Cottage makes a very welcoming base for enjoying fishing, walking, Irish music and the coast.

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.

This cottage gave us a chance to reflect and enjoy the real parts of Ireland. We got to meet many local farmers and everyone was so very friendly. We had a wonderful time, the owners are amazing people and treated us wonderfully.

This cottage is the best we have stayed in, such a peaceful place. Daisy the donkey was a real pleasure to have around, we had a fantastic holiday would highly recommend. The owners had left us milk, coffee, tea, butter and fresh scones. Such a welcoming arrival after a long journey from home.

Stayed here last week, we were welcomed with delicious scones. This beautiful cottagehas all the facilities you will need. Set out in the country side but not too far away from local towns, this cottage is perfect for a break. The garden is just beautiful and great for having bbq. Daisy the donkey was always there to meet you and never said no to a carrot! The bedrooms etc are very clean and bedding is very cosy and comfortable. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this cottage.

Cannot recommend this property enough. Absolutely picturesque surroundings, including luxury landscaped gardens front and back. Interior to a high stand, very clean and user friendly - including tv with hdmi On arrival met by very nice and friendly owner, with milk, butter, tea and coffee ..and homemade scones to boot! Lots to do in the local areas (Castlebar, Westport etc) or perfect place just to relax and escape. Will definitely be back!

My husband and dog stayed in Cregan Cottage earlier this month and it was a wonderful retreat. We took spare blankets to cover their couch and chairs so that little Zola (the dog) didn't leave paw prints every where and she loved it there! We felt so safe and relaxed, coming from Galway City centre it was great to be able to sit in the evening with the back door and front door open letting the dog potter around the lovely gardens to her hearts content. Daisy the donkey was great company, we fed her a carrot every day and each morning she'd potter up to the fence to greet us :o) The local shops were approx a 10 minute drive and we were within very easy reach of Castlerbar, Foxford, Westport, Ballina and the Achill Islands. The stove in the lounge helped to make our evenings very cosy and the bbq set out the back gave us additional eating options if the evenings were mild. The house was very clean, with plenty of bedding and towels. The bathroom is very new with a great power shower and the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable with a window view over the front garden. in the morning I would read in bed and look over and see Daisy the donkey pottering in her field. We will definately go back one day, lots of fond memories are held there! Lou and Zola (and the husband)

Just back from a lovely break at Cregan Cottage. A beautiful little cottage in rural setting in County Mayo. It is picture postcard perfect!! Great if you want to get away from it all but love a little bit of luxury too. The cottage is beautiful with all mod cons. Totally secluded but just a short drive from some of Mayo's lovely villages and beaches. We travelled with 2 teenage boys (13, 17) and our dog. The boys were instantly smitten by the donkey at the bottom of the garden and we found plenty of activities such as surfing, swimming and tree adventures within a short drive. We had dinner and a show in Hotel Westport and ate twice in The Gateway Hotel, Swinford. Foxford Mill is well worth a visit too. The cottage is a credit to Margaret & Brendan!
