“Ideal base for exploring Mayo, perfect for families.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Great house, lots of space, everything you need for a family holiday. Walking distance to Newport town. 20 minute drive to Keel Beach in Achill it's well worth the trip and Nevin's pub is great for food. We hope to return in the near future and would book this house again.

“Great location for cycling the Mayo Greenway”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This house was perfect for our family of 3 boys. We got to cycle and explore the area and found Newport to be a convenient base. The house was close to the village and had plenty of space outside for the boys to play. The house was modern and suited our needs. The welcome pack of bread,butter wine and esp Easter Eggs for the boys was a lovely gesture. We found the owners to be helpful even allowing us to use their bikes. We look forward to returning again in the future.

“Comfortable relaxing holiday in fantastic location”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at Knockard for the 1st week of the Easter holidays. Felt like the house had not been rented out for some time but had the most relaxing time! We had plenty of space to accomodate 3 year old twins and a 6 year old + found everything we could need. Newport is the most characteristic Irish village. Small yet offers everything you might need. Cycling newport to Mulranny was the highlight of the week!

Reviewed 9 January 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here the end of July, what a perfect week to get! Beautiful house with loads of room in the house & space for 4children, garden area & safe from the road. Weather fantastic to cycle the Greenways, what a scene. Walking distance to everything local, shop, amenities & pub for gorgeous food.
Helen a huge help showing us around & having the house beautifly laid out & a very tasty welcoming pack ready for us.
Very memorable holiday when our little 11mth old took walking in this home!!?

Thank you Donie, Deirdre & Helen for having us
