Sound Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Sound Cottage is a detached, ground floor cottage set in a quiet, coastal position on Achill Island. With two bedrooms, one double plus one adult bunk bedroom, along with a double sofa bed in the living room, this cottage can sleep six people. The cottage also includes a shower room, a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a multi-fuel stove. Outside is ample off road parking plus a front lawned garden with furniture. With walks available from the cottage down to the sea, and plenty of activities nearby including golf, watersports and stunning cycle paths, Sound Cottage is a perfect retreat for a couple or a small family looking for a peaceful base on Achill Island.

At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but water sports are always easy to find.

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.

Electric storage heaters with multi-fuel stove. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, tumble dryer, TV with Free-to-air channels, DVD, selection of books and games. Fuel, power and starter pack for stove inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair. Ample off road parking. Front lawned garden with furniture. Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop and pub 2 miles. Coast 2 mins walk. Note: This property is surrounded by farmland, so pets must be kept under strict control. Note: Though all ground floor, there is a step between the kitchen and hall, which leads to the bathroom.

Remote situation of the cottage and an olde worlde charm. The views across the sound to mainland Eire were superb and the cottage itself had years of history between it's walls.

What a beautiful place Sound Cottage is! My husband and I and our 3 girls thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Achill and the cottage and its location are picturesque. There is everything you could need in the cottage for a family of 5, it is clean and tidy and what you would expect from an old Irish cottage. The girls enjoyed Ned the donkey in the field beside the cottage and the fact that the shoreline was pretty much on the doorstep. A fab place to just get away from modern day life and spend time together as a family.

Fantastic location and beautiful scenery. A perfect authentic Irish cottage for a peaceful getaway, made all the better by the friendly donkey, Neddy in the field beside.

We had a lovely restful time in this charismatic cosy little cottage with beautiful views from nearly every window. It was remote enough to feel 'far from the madding crowd' but in fact close enough to shops when we needed supplies. I would definitely come back- this time in the summer when it would be a totally different experience. The place was spotless and our dogs gave it 5 stars as well!

Very private, quiet garden. Amazing scenery. Great location as it was close to amenities of town also.

We loved how cosy the Cottage was and the location was amazing! Had wonderful views and privacy. If you're looking for a week away from the stresses and strains, look no further than Sound Cottage in Achill, we'll be back!

The views were outstanding, also it was a very short distance to amenities. All the blue flag beaches and sights on Achill were at the most only a 20 minute drive from the cottage which was great as you didn't tire from travelling. The cottage had a very good selection of DVDs and books to keep you entertained if the weather was too bad to venture out.

We spent 4 nights on Achill Island earlier this year for my birthday... just me, my wife and our dog. It was perfect. We travelled to Achill with the intention of staying in the cottage the entire time (except for dog walks), so we're probably not the best to speak on the activities available on the island. We simply wanted somewhere with no internet, no computers and no hassle. We brought all of our food for the 4 days with us, but I believe there is a supermarket within 1 mile of the cottage. The cottages location was perfect. Out on its own peninsula, we weren't bothered by anyone for the 4 days. Breakfast outside by the water every morning in privacy, midnight walks with the dog in privacy. The multi-fuel stove was great and there was enough fuel supplied for one full day of burning (9am through to midnight). We brought fuel with us for the other days. Honestly, I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back.
