Newport 0.8 miles. A lovely detached character cottage on the outskirts of Newport, County Mayo. Nestled in beautiful countryside, yet only ten minutes’ walk to the town, this cosy cottage offers two bedrooms and comfortable living accommodation to come home to after a busy day exploring everything this area has to offer. Throw another log on the stove, sit back and relax, and recount your adventures of the day. With a fitted kitchen offering a space to dine, you can rustle up a hearty breakfast whilst you spread out your maps and plot your next expedition! Newport is a beautiful heritage town, stunningly located on the shores of Clew Bay. Whether your idea of the perfect break is action-packed days of fishing, walking and cycling, or a more leisurely wander round a town steeped in history, Newport is the perfect base for a holiday in the west of Ireland. County Mayo has some wonderful cycle routes to choose from. Escape the bustle of urban life on the Great Western Greenway, the longest off road walking and cycling trail in Ireland; the Greenway follows Ireland’s Atlantic coast between Westport town and Achill Island and visits the picturesque villages of Newport and Mulranny. For a family day out, you can’t beat a trip to the beach, and County Mayo has the highest number of Blue Flag beaches in the country, from small sheltered coves to stretches of sand – further than the eye can see. Renowned for its excellent fishing, Newport offers something for everyone, whatever your level of expertise. We have sea angling in the bountiful waters of Clew Bay, while Newport River and Beltra Lake are regarded as some of the best freshwater fishing grounds in Europe. A stay in Newport just wouldn’t be complete without a visit to one of our traditional pubs. Find a cosy corner and make yourself at home – enjoy the traditional music still thriving here, or simply savour the perfect pint, poured by a friendly local barman. Take some time to discover Castlebar, Westport, Croagh Patrick Mountain and Achill Island, which are all well worth visiting. A beautiful country cottage for your Irish adventure which will live long in the memory.

“We stayed at Church View for a week in August 2021. We had a fabulous holiday. Our main aim was to stay close to the greenway and Church View was an excellent location especially for the greenway from Newport to Mulranny and Achill. The house was in a lovely quiet location but still in easy walking distance of Newport. It was very comfortable and the TVs in the bedrooms gave us and the kids a luxury that we don't have at home. The owner (Paddy) could not have been more hospitable with suggestions for eating out and places to go visit. All his dining suggestions were excellent and we would happily stay in Church View again. The house was spotless when we arrived and had everything we needed. Thanks Paddy and hopefully see you again.”

“This is the perfect small cottage immaculately presented and with personal attention from its owner Paddy Costello, himself something of a local legend.A short walk to the pubs, cafes and good shops of Newport, which is largely unspoiled by tourism but is a short drive from the great tourist sites of the area, such as Achill Island and Croagh Patrick. We particularly enjoyed the Ballycroy national park admittedly helped by lovely weather! Don't miss the Harry Clarke stained glass windows in the Newport RC church.”

“Spent a week here in May. The description did not do it justice. The views across the valley towards the mountains is fantastic. The cottage had everything we needed and was ideally situated for touring the area. The Greenway is on the doorstep so ideal for cyclistswalkers. Will definitely coming back next year.”

“Very conveniently placed for Newport and surrounding area. Cottage is well equipped, warm and welcoming. Very friendly owner who will welcome you to visit Ashford Castle as well. Quiet situation off the main road but walkable into Newport. Perfect if you want to explore north mayo or fish the many fisheries in the area. Shed outside is perfect for wet gear. Lots of nice places to eat locally from brilliant fish and chips to gourmet dinners at Newport House. Great music in town at Grauine Uaile.”

“Wonderful cottage in a lovely location. The cottage is well equipped and warm. Plenty of hot water and lovely log burner for those cold evenings. Plenty of outside space. The kitchen is well equipped if I was being really picky it's lacking a decent sharp knife! Paddy makes you feel very welcome. Newport itself is great plenty of pubs and shops within walking distance and lots of great places to visit in a short distance.”
