It overlooks beautiful Clew Bay and is within a short walk (300 metres) of the sea and a small harbour. It is at the midway point on the road between Westport and Louisburgh and provides easy access (by car) to some of Ireland's most wonderful scenery and beaches. It is a perfect base for walking, cycling or hiking holidays while golf, surfing, sailing and other water sports are all available locally.

Climbing Croagh Patrick, is hugely popular with visitors as is exploring up and down Ireland's wonderful west coast towards Sligo in the north and Galway's Connemara to the south.
