Enjoying the most breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean this charming, traditional Irish cottage is truly in a realm of its own.

Ideal as a romantic hideaway for two, a family home or a stylish getaway for friends...you'll never want to leave.

The space
The Old Fisherman's Cottage, an escape by the sea.

The Old Fisherman's Cottage has been our family home for many generations and has recently been renovated making it the perfect island home.

Located in the sleepy little village of Dugort, the cottage is set between two beautiful beaches and backs right onto the Atlantic Ocean. A truly rare and stunning setting.

The cottage is a traditional Irish build, white washed and renovated by local craftsmen. The interior is stylish and elegant; a stove warms the main room with its welcoming glow and personally commissioned portraits, paintings and art pieces decorate the rooms.

The views from the kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and bathroom are simply stunning...The Atlantic Ocean. Sometimes like a calm glass lake and sometimes an angry tempest, it is ever changing. Visitors find themselves enchanted by the views of the ocean, the odd fisherman's curragh rowing by, a small local trawler to an occasional yacht or small ship sheltering from the storms. If you're lucky you'll see playful dolphins flipping about and performing just for you!

You'll find a well positioned bench at the bottom of the garden, closest to the sea, the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of tea or a glass of wine in the evening (although you may need a warm sweater)!

Or why not fill up the picnic hamper with goodies and head down to the beach for a perfect afternoon on the sand.

Back at the cottage you'll always be lovely and warm, if you don't wish to light the fire we have full central heating throughout and the whole place is triple glazed.

Guest access
You will have the whole cottage and grounds for your own personal use (you'll usually have the whole beach to yourself too).

Living room with stove, seating for six and TV.

Brand new, fully equipped kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and hopefully everything else you might expect.

Dining area adjacent to the kitchen with farmhouse table and seating for six.

Master bedroom with king size bed and magnificent views.

Double bedroom on ground floor.

Third bedroom with bunk beds.

Brand new modern bathroom with power shower.

Good sized garden to the rear.

Parking.

Location

Dugort, Achill Island, Ireland

Achill Island is located in the very west of Ireland and is often described as how Ireland used to be in days gone by.

The Old Fisherman's Cottage can be found on the north of the island in Dugort, right next to the beautiful Silver Strand beach and overlooked by a magnificent mountain, Slievemore.

There are no less than five blue-flag beaches on the island, as well as hills, mountains, cliffs and many places of interest which wait to be discovered.

The Atlantic Drive (or Wild Atlantic Way as it is now known) is not to be missed. A drive around the south of the island where the Atlantic Ocean crashes against the rocks and creates its own natural drama.

There are some excellent places to eat on the island and lots of pubs to enjoy a pint of Guinness, listen to traditional Irish music and catch up on the craic. In Dugort we have two pubs, one at each end of the village and two amazing restaurants which we can highly recommend.

People have come here for years to get away from it all, relax by an open fire and enjoy the spectacular scenery however there is so much more to do if the mood takes you...hiking, cycling, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, kite surfing, fishing, painting, archaeology to name but a few.

Keen traveller, I particularly like the small Greek islands, quiet beaches and undiscovered shores. I also have a love for interior design. The peace and tranquility of our beach house on Achill Island makes it our favourite place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the real world.
