“Great base for exploring West Ireland”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Perfectly located beneath the looming Croagh Patrick, this small apartment was an ideal base for exploring West Ireland. The modern and well decorated apartment is a great size for two people, and has everything you need, including a kitchen and breakfast bar (microwave, hobs, fridge and dishwasher) within the living room (TV, DVD player and Bluetooth Speakers). The bedroom is comfortable with a modern en suite, and the whole apartment is decorated with the art and photographs of the owners. Wi-Fi is available, although we found the connection to be slow and intermittent, so was only useful for checking directions!
Unless you are happy to walk a mile or so (which may not be advisable in the dark), then the nearest pubs and restaurants are a short drive or taxi ride away. In Murrisk there are several options, although the food at The Tavern was our personal highlight. Westport is not much further and offers loads of pubs and restaurants, plus traditional music into the early hours.
Using the apartment as a base, we explored Westport (bustling), the 42km Greenway Cycle Route from Achill to Westport, Clare Island (peaceful, isolated walks), the summit of Croagh Patrick itself (incredible views), Connemara National Park (scenic), and Galway. Clew Bay itself is absolutely stunning, and Bertra Strand offers a nice beach/dune walk into the Bay and views over to Clare and Achill Islands.

“Is Even Better Than It Looks in the Photographs!”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

It was a pleasure to stay 2 weeks in this beautiful, very tastefully furnished apartment. A bit of city sophistication in the West of Ireland! Fantastic. The living room was bigger than expected and the original artwork and photography on the walls were a treat to look at. The courtyard is beautiful also, especially when lit up in the evenings. To tell the truth we didn't feel like we were staying in a holiday rental but in someone's home. Everything was done with such care. Hilary and Felix were extremely helpful - particularly with one issue we needed help with and answered all our queries and any requests. The bed was very comfortable, as was the sofa. During our first week the weather was rather cold but the heating was kept on for us all the time so we were lovely and toasty and warm. There are plenty of pots and pans and cooking utensils in the kitchenette and a nice private shaded decking area. The free Wifi was very useful for looking up local attractions. The apartment was just a 5 minute walk from Bertra Strand and the house itself is at the foot of Croagh Patrick. I would highly recommend this apartment. For our outings we went to Old Head Beach (which is sheltered and very pretty). I would recommend Killary Cruises for a 90 minute cruise down Ireland's only fjord and a trip to Cong and Ashford Castle. The scenery around this area is just spectacular. I would definitely stay again and we thought it was excellent value for money.

“Céilidh to Mayo”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had an amazing trip to County Mayo and thanks to Bertra Strand apartments it was so easy and comfortable. The apartment was compact and practical. When we arrived it was cosy and warm after a long journey. We were able to get a good nights sleep comfortably for our hike up Croagh Patrick the next day which was breath taking!!!

“In the middle of everything!”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed here May bank holiday. The booking process was simple even though we booked last minute. We arrived late and Hilary was there to greet us and show us around. The apartment is really cute and adequate for 2 people.It is exactly as advertised. It's very warm and cozy and private.There are 2 other apartments here that are bigger and though we didn't get to see inside them the pictures look gorgeous. Hilary herself is very warm and personable. The apartment is at the base of Croagh Patrick with spectacular views and Bertra Strand is just a short walk away. Very close to Bars and Restaurants...5 minutes to the famous "The Tavern" We would definitely go back
