“Family friendly exquisite cottage, deceptively large”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

What a wonder Mike's Cottage is!! A stunning old cottage which has been tastefully & cleverly extended with a large open plan living space, so no-one was crowding each other, but at the same time you can keep an eye/ear on any young children. Ann has a fantastic stock of kids toys/costumes which, coupled along with Max - the friendliest dog ever - kept my children entertained for hours! Situated in a lovely, quiet country setting, but only a 10 minute drive into the bustling town of westport, we will definitely be returning and have already made enquiries into dates for next year.
On a side note - our car broke down on a day trip to Achill (an hour's drive away, but most definitely worth it) and the help we received from Ann's extended family was unprecedented and fantastic! Irish hospitality at it's finest!!

“A beautiful cottage and a warm welcome”
Reviewed 30 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Old Mike's Cottage is a beautifully renovated and very tastefully appointed holiday home. We were delighted by the comfort and character of this place. It really is amazing! The owners have thought of everything to give the visitor a wonderfully relaxing and memorable holiday experience. The rooms were so beautifully furnished and the beds were so comfortable. We enjoyed many of the books and the wonderful log fire in the evenings. There is so much to see and do in the area and Old Mike's is such a homely base from which to explore. Toys were provided for the children and special care was taken to find out their ages so that the toys were suitable. We were greeted by Ann who was so lovely and very kindly left us delicious freshly baked scones. We enjoyed the information left for tourists and had many enjoyable outings around Westport and Connemara. The family dog, Max, was the best toy of all and our children instantly fell in love with him! Thank you for a wonderful stay- one of our best holidays yet.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Located just outside of Westport, this gem of a cottage is set in a tranquil and easy to access location. The cottage is beautifully presented, impeccably clean and is a real home from home - providing everything you could possibly need during your stay.

The bedrooms were spacious and light with comfortable mattresses and excellent pillows and eiderdowns. Despite being set near a road, the whole area in extremely quiet throughout the day and night lending itself to an excellent night's sleep.

The main living area has a wood-burning stove - a real treat to curl up in front of at night time. The open plan design means that the space is perfect for companionable socialising , especially nice when you're cooking.

As honeymooners we were looking for somewhere to rest and relax and, for us, this cottage not only fitted the bill but went far beyond our expectations.

We were treated to an incredibly warm welcome from Ann and this made all the difference to our stay. We will be recommending this cottage to all of our friends and family and are already plotting another stay with friends for next year!
