Cottage
Drive down our little boreen, through the canopy of trees, to the gates of 'Teach Mo Chroi', a fresh friendly country home overlooking the Partry Mountains and Croagh Patrick. Our boreen, Irish for tiny one-lane road, is just a 1/4 mile off N84 and midway between Castlebar and Ballinrobe Town. Only a 15 minute drive into Westport, a bustling seaside town on the Atlantic's Clew Bay, an hour to Galway City, and 25 minutes to Cong Village, home to Ashford Castle and The Quiet Man Cottage. 'Teach Mo Chroi' meaning 'Home of My Heart', is set upon an acre of meadowland amidst the farmland of Cartronbower, Ballintubber, where your nearest neighbor is likely to be the cow or sheep in a nearby field. There's nothing quite as nice as awakening to the birdsong on a fine summer morning.

Our boreen, Irish for tiny one-lane road, is just a 1/4 mile off N84 and midway between Castlebar and Ballinrobe Town. Only a 15 minute drive into Westport, a bustling seaside town on the Atlantic's Clew Bay, an hour to Galway City, and 25 minutes to Cong Village, home to Ashford Castle and The Quiet Man Cottage. 'Teach Mo Chroi' meaning 'Home of My Heart', is set upon an acre of meadowland amidst the farmland of Cartronbower, Ballintubber, where your nearest neighbor is likely to be the cow or sheep in a nearby field. There's nothing quite as nice as awakening to the birdsong on a fine summer morning. Relax with a cup of tea on the patio beside sunlit mountains; or pluck a novel from the book shelves and settle in for a good read. When night falls, the sky is transformed into a visual feast of stars! The house is in an ideal location for touring the West of Ireland. Whether you've an hour or the day, consider visiting these worthwhile nearby offerings: 12th Century Ballintubber Abbey, Ballinrobe Horseraces, Heneghans Heritage Centre, Ashford Castle’s Boat Cruises, The Ceide Fields, Kylemore Abbey, Croagh Patrick, Westport House & Country Park Amusements, The Fjords at Killary Harbor, Our Lady of Knock Shrine, Galway City, the spectacular cliffs and superb beaches of Achill Island, or for a special treat learn to fly a hawk at Ashford Castle's Falconry School. For the thrill seekers and outdoorsmen, try the unique challenges offered at the Killary Adventure Center. Teach Mo Chroi' is a family friendly home with many desirable features to its credit; providing excellent accommodations to large groups, for reunions, anniversaries, and special family gatherings. There is ample parking for 6 vehicles. The house is equipped with US 110v outlets as well as the standard Irish 220v, so bring along your Ipods, etc. For the film buff, relax and enjoy a slection from our more than 30 Irish Films on DVD or take advantage of our Wireless Internet for your laptop or smart phone. From the spacious kitchen to the warm inviting living room, every room is large and comfortable. The Master Bedroom is en suite with a King bed and walk-in closet. All bedrooms are fitted with ultra plush US mattresses. The Extra large Dbl Bedroom has 2 Queen beds and TV w/DVD-VCR. Two additional Bedrooms host a Queen & Single bed in each. There are 2 more bathrooms with tub and shower units as well as a large utility room w/washer and dryer. Great water pressure throughout the home. Cartronbower boreen serves as a walking route to many of the locals because its peaceful and rarely traveled. Wander down its winding path and you're likely to encounter cows, horses, or donkeys in the surrounding fields, each known to enjoy a carrot or apple from a friendly passerby. In early Spring, the fields are alive with the sights and sounds of baby lambs, a vision to behold for children and adults alike. A portion of the front garden is a soccer/gaelic football field complete with 2 netted goals. Additionally, there's a paved area for basketball with 2 backboards, child's swing set, and a patio complete with furniture and BBQ Grill. More

About the neighbourhood
The home is situated upon an acre of meadowland in the small countryside village of Ballintubber Co. Mayo. Home to the Historic 12th Century Ballintubber Abbey, our local parish church. The house known as Teach Mo Chroi' meaning 'Home of My Heart' is in a splendid location for touring the West of Ireland. We are only a short easy drive into any one of 3 Towns; Westport, Castlebar, & Ballinrobe. Just 15 minutes East of Scenic Seaside Westport town, 10 minutes South of Castlebar town, & 10 minutes North of Ballinrobe town. Slightly further at 25 minutes is Ashford Castle in Cong Village and an hour away is Galway city.
Getting around
Trains and buses are available from Dublin Airport & City to Castlebar Town 10 mins from the property. Buses are also available from Shannon Airport connecting in Galway City.
