Welcome to Apple Blossom Cottage
Apple Blossom Cottage is a recently renovated, detached, stone built holiday cottage, situated in beautiful countryside just one mile from the lovely town of Kiltimagh, in Co. Mayo on the west coast of Ireland.
The cottage is located just 20 minutes drive from Ireland West Airport, Knock, with local attractions such as Knock Shrine which is an easy 10 minutes drive. The Museum of Countrylife at Turlough, Castlebar is 15 minutes away, and also closeby are the wollen mills and lakes. It is only around 30 minutes drive to Ballina which is famous for salmon fishing. The nearest seaside can be reached by car in just 40 minutes.
The location is ideal for touring Mayo and for those wishing to climb Croagh Patrick, a popular tourist attraction. It is also well located for access to the "Wild Atlantic Way" the world famous road from Kerry to Donegal which runs along the west coast of Ireland. The road can be joined close by just outside the town of Castlebar.
Apple Blossom Cottage combines traditional Irish style with modern day living, providing bright, clean, comfortable accommodation, which sleeps up to 7 people, so is ideal for families, small or large, groups of friends, as well as couples or single people, all of who may wish to explore the pleasures that County Mayo has to offer from a peaceful central location. The cottage is also pet friendly, and is highly recommended by the Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, as was shown on their website www.mayospca.ie in their "animal care" section.
The cottage benefits from a beautiful lounge, with a dining area, attractive vaulted pinewood ceiling, matching wooden furniture, doors and fire surround housing a very welcoming open 'turf' fire for those cosy nights in, although of course there is also the modern convenience of oil fired cental heating thoughout.
For preparing your family meals, or maybe just a snack, there is a modern fully equipped dining kitchen, with new appliances, utensils, crockery and cutlery. At bedtime the cottage boasts 3 lovely bedrooms; a double bedroom with en-suite, plus a twin bedroom and a further bedroom with a 3 berth bunk bed, both of which share a modern stylish shower room.
Externally Apple Blossom Cottage is surrounded by lovely gardens, with its beautiful springtime apple blossom, from which the cottage's name is derived, plus the convenience of off-road parking, all of which is set in a peaceful countryside location yet within a short distance of shops, local amenities and attractions.
You can also say hello to our own donkeys who live close by the property, something that has been very popular with our younger visitors.
