We're also within 30 min drive of Foxford, salmon fishing hub of Ireland.
Interaction with guests
Guests are free to come and go as they please during their stay, as they have a separate entrance to the semi-self contained accommodation.
We are helpful hosts but not stickybeaks - if you want a quiet retreat to read a book or tour the countryside, we promise not to bother you!
We will, of course, be on hand for check-in, check-out, general questions and meals service unless otherwise notified in advance.
- Smoking is permitted in enclosed porch area.
I am an Aussie, Denise "mama duck", living in rural Mayo, Ireland.
I hail from rural Western Australia and have lived in the gorgeous State of Tasmania, where I hope to return one day, and have enjoyed travel to UK, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam, Paris, Amsterdam, and now Ireland.
I have pets but they are not allowed in the guest wing of the cottage - your pets are welcome as long as you clean up after them and keep them on leash while outside on our premises.
I know how hard it is to find dog-friendly accommodation! :)
I'm a bit of a foodie and love cooking with fresh ingredients, organic when possible. I'm becoming quite a dab hand at Full Irish fry ups.
My life motto: Life is for living, the light is for later.
Hosting at White Rose Cottage is my first endeavour in BnB and I'm looking forward to the experience and giving other people a warm and casual atmosphere in beautiful Mayo countryside.
