An absolutely beautiful house in a great location with all the amenities you could need. We comfortably fit 10 adults and 6 kids under 5 here. The back garden was a great bonus and kids spent a lot of time here. The house itself is very impressive, homely and relaxing. I would have no qualms about recommending this house to anyone, particularly large groups. On a final note, the owner was great to deal with as I was back and forth with dates a lot. We hope to return soon.

Thank you for your lovely comments and review .I'm so glad you had a lovely holiday and that everyone enjoyed themselves.We understand its a difficult task to organise a family group for holiday dates so its never a problem adjusting dates and numbers before you finally confirm your booking. You were very easy to accommodate in all respects, and we look forward to whenever you wish to revisit.
Best wishes,
Margaret

“Fantastic spacious house in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 26 October 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in this well appointed and spacious house for a whole month. Thank you to Margaret all our needs were met, nothing was too much trouble. Some of the party was delayed in arrivungl and Margaret could not have been more accommodating, arranging collection of some of the party who travelled by train, which was not the original plan, arrived late into Westport railway station. The house is comfortable and has everything you could need, with plenty of space which allowed our extended family and friends to have their own space as well as a large lounge where we could chill and watch TV or a movie, listen to music or read - and wow what a great collection of books the owners have. The bedrooms were spacious and had great storage. The children enjoyed playing in the garden and the location in terms of the Greenway could not be better - you could get on the Greenway just one minute from home! We brought bikes with us and there was plenty of secure storage for these. The Quays area has a great selection of restaurants and bars, we especially enjoyed Sunday lunch and music and dancing on Thursday evening at The Helm. We went on an evening fishing trip organised by the Helm which was fantastic! Crough Patrick was only a 15 minute drive away and some of our party climbed the mountain. We enjoyed the hustle and bustle of Westport town but much preferred being located down at The Quay with beautiful views and walking distance to the shops and restaurants. The Creel was perfect for a coffee and a big slab of cake and The Towers offered a wonderful menu and service was excellent wherever we went.
If you have the time check out Joyce's Country Sheepdogs in Connemara about an hour away, so worth it. We had a trip out with Westport Jarvey - the wonderful Bella the horse and charming Kevin.
If you are looking for a comfortable stay in a great location, if you enjoy having a good bit of space and want a home from home then Harbour Haven is for you. A great place to come home to after a day out at Achill or shopping in Castlebar! We would highly recommend.

What a beautiful property and setting, the house is exceptional, pristine and so very comfortable, my family and friends (11 of us) enjoyed a long weekend here to celebrate my 60th and we all agreed we wished it had been longer, when I first started looking for a venue I looked to Louisburgh which is 17km away, although a beautiful place also, we agreed this was far better, pub across the road (the Quays), plenty of restaurants, walking distance into Westport (lovely town and shops), wonderful views, abundance of wildlife, listening to Oyster catchers, watching the tide come in and go out, the smell of the sea, sipping a glass of Vino. We managed to go to Croagh Patrick although these 60 year old legs would never have made it to the top, fair play to those who did.........so much to see and not nearly enough time, oh and exceptional beaches.
Everyone we met was welcoming and friendly.
The house itself (way better than staying in a hotel), had every amenity, Margaret has thought of everything, amazing library of books covering every subject you could possibly be interested in, a nautical theme runs throughout the house, plenty of room for each of us to have our own space and indulge in our own interests, be it reading, watching TV, playing the piano or just generally chatting and dozing. All in all a trip I will never forget and will certainly look forward to another visit sometime in the future.
