About our home

Our house is child-friendly and with no stairs and is situated overlooking Lough Conn, one of Ireland’s largest lakes, that is famous for brown trout fishing. In fact, this whole area of north west Ireland is good for game and sea angling, so you could plan various fishing expeditions from it. Within 50km there is access to several top-class golf courses from parkland to links type variety. The area is rich in heritage and great for walking with several marked trails within close proximity of the property. The house is in an excellent location to access the now infamous North-Western part of 'The Wild Atlantic Way' that will take you on a stunningly beautiful journey around Ireland's western coast line. Our house is 14km from Ballina (pop. 10,000) and 16km from Castlebar (pop. 9,5000). The nearest shop is 2.5km (Knockmore village) and the town of Foxford (pop. 2,000) is 6km away. Knock international Airport is approximately 45 minutes, Shannon Airport is 2 and a half hours and Dublin Airport is 3 hours. The nearest train station is in Foxford.

More about us

  1. Hi there, we're a family living in rural County Mayo in the beautiful west of Ireland. We have three children aged 6,8 and 10. The older two are boys, the youngest is a girl. We live less in a bungalow on a half acre site than 60 meters from Lough Conn and have stunning views of the lake and mountains regardless of the weather. Our home is family-friendly with a large living area and plenty of toys.

  2. I work as a 3rd level lecturer and my husband works in IT. We love the outdoors and are keen hill-walkers. We enjoy plenty of local walks.

  3. We love the peace and quiet of our home and the stunning scenery and fresh air!

Neighbourhood

A literal translation of the name of our townland Tawnaghmore means a large rocky field. It is dispersed village with approximately 50 houses overlooking Lough Conn. We are at the bottom of the 'rocky hill' and have a short driveway from the main road. There are numerous 'way marked' beautiful walks that take you up the hill and traverse the hill, giving stunning views on the area. The location is an ideal base for day trips to Westport, Connemara, Clifden, Achill, Belmullet, Sligo, Galway and is 45mins to 1.5 hours from all of these locations.
