Hilary's cottage is lovely, and perfectly located under Craogh Patrick's peak. Bertra Beach is a 2 minute walk, and is perfect for a lovely walk. Westport is a 15 minute taxi ride away so easy to get into town too. The cottage has everything needed for a couple people, a good little kitchenette, and all was as expected. We didn't get much use out of the porch as it was winter but it looked lovely and perfect for the summer. Would love to go back!

Hilary's place was brill, she gave us lots of information on where to eat, taxi numbers and local walks/sights. The cabin itself is so cozy, we didn't want to leave! Location wise, the cabin is a short walk to the beach, very close to Croagh Patrick and a short distance into Westport town. Lots to do and see and lots of great pubs nearby! We stayed for 4 nights but easily could have stayed longer!! :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Hillary's cottage. Tucked away on Bertra strand, it's still close enough distance to Westport but feels nicely isolated. Just visited in October and it was the perfect place to cosy up whilst also being close to dozens of walks/hikes should the weather permit. The cottage itself is perfect for two people. The kitchen has everything to rustle up breakfast/dinner, small touches like a speaker, new candles, detailed local recommendations etc. make this place extra special. Bertra beach is a must whatever the weather. This place was perfect for disconnecting and getting a taste of the real wild West of Ireland.

We had such a lovely trip in Westport, the cottage was ideal for the two of us. Beautiful scenery with Croagh Patrick and the beach nearly on the doorstep and a very toasty, cozy cottage perfect for those windy, rainy days. Would highly recommend.

We had a beautiful stay at Hilary's, the varying accommodation offered are each unique and stand alone in perfect isolation in close proximity to one another, meaning that you not only feel secure but that you have your own private home. The accommodation was very clean and tastefully decorated with Felix's amazing pieces of art and Hilary was a very attentive host, her homemade jam was to die for, - these little touches added so much to our stay. The beach is a quick 10min walk from the home and we enjoyed some lovely evening strolls. The overall location was perfect, is idyllic yet very accessible to Westport. Be sure to take the Atlantic drive to Achill and if weather permitting, visit Keem Bay at the end of the route - spectacular!!
