How far are you from the town and beaches?
Ocean View Cottage is in a secluded remote spot in the side of Carrowmore Hill next to Louisburgh town. Like most of the accommodation in this area you will need transport. We are under ten minutes drive from Louisburgh, six minutes to blue flag Carrowmore beach and just over half an hour to Westport. There are a number of other lovely beaches in the area within 15 minutes drive.
How many nights can I book?
The minimum booking is one week in the summer holidays and three nights any other time of the year although a week always offers the best value.
What days can I begin and end my holiday?
In summer the weekly bookings start and end on a Saturday. Any other time of the year you can choose your days of arrival and departure any day from Monday to Saturday as long as your booking is at least three nights.
How many people can stay?
The house will comfortably sleep six adults in two king size beds and two single beds.
Do you have wifi?
We do have wifi. Due to the remote location of Ocean View Cottage we are not able to have fibre broadband (yet) but we do have the best available alternative broadband. It should be fine for most uses although please be aware the service can be affected in bad weather and is subject to the provider’s fair use policy (mainly streaming). Unfortunately we can’t completely guarantee uninterrupted service at this location.
How do I get there?
You will need a car for your holiday. You can hire a car at Knock (or any other) airport or in Westport if you arrive by train. You will drive through Westport to Louisburgh town and then take a right just outside Louisburgh that will take you up and round the side of Carrowmore Hill to Pulgloss. More detailed information will be supplied before your visit.
What time can I arrive?
Check in is from 4.00pm on the day of your arrival and check out is 10.30am on the day you leave.
Do I need to bring towels or bedding?
No – we will supply towels and bedding for your stay.
Can I smoke in the house?
Sorry no, Ocean View Cottage is a no smoking property. Smoking outdoors while taking in the view is fine however!
Do you allow pets?
Sorry we don’t allow pets at Ocean View Cottage
How do I pay?
You can make payment through this website using PayPal or with a credit card. You can choose to pay a deposit or the full amount when you book. If you pay a deposit this is 25% of the booking amount and the remainder is due six weeks before your holiday. We do recommend you take out holiday cancellation insurance in case unforeseen events require you to cancel. Before you book please take make sure you have read our terms and conditions.
Do you offer longer term rentals?
We are asked this fairly often. We don’t offer long term rentals as we want to stay ourselves from time to time!
