A modern beach house on the Wild Atlantic Way
You may recognise this swanky spot if you read our guide to the best beach houses in Ireland on Airbnb. This modern two-storey villa is right on the Atlantic coast and within 100m from the nearest beach with a small pier.
It’s perfect for a quiet beach getaway with the nearest town of Louisburgh just 6km away. There’s also great hiking opportunities nearby including Croagh Patrick and Mweelrea for anyone looking to get active.
The four-bedroom house sleeps nine guests making it a great option for a group of friends or big family holiday. Plus, the self-catering kitchen and large comfortable lounge full of TV entertainment options means you’ll feel right at home.
Also, if it’s your first time using Airbnb, you can nab up to €50 off your first trip by using this code when you’re booking.
Ocean views and beach access
The real reason this place is such a standout stay is because of its incredible coastal views and beach access. You can gaze out at the beach from the kitchen with a completely open glass front lounge area.
The views are even better upstairs where you’ll find a balcony which is perfect for watching the sunset over the islands out to sea. The host says that “on a clear day you can see Clare Island, Inisturk, Inisboffin and Renvyle”.
It’s in a perfect location if you’re keen to head out for an early morning walk, fish or surf, with the nearest surf beach and pier just two minutes away. You can also take the Clare Island ferry from the same pier for a nice and convenient little day trip.
Modern beachy interior with endless views
Even if the weather turns ugly, you can admire the sea from indoors with Apple TV, WII, Netflix and board games to keep you entertained in front of the fireplace.
The comfortable house is decorated in a modern beachy look. There are plenty of couches and reading corners with natural lighting streaming through the windows.
The furniture is mostly a clean wooden finish which ties in nicely with all the beach related artwork and prints on display.
What you can expect if you visit
The villa has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as, a separate wet room for people coming straight off the beach.
The open dining and living area has a glass front facing the ocean, with incredible views throughout the house. You can also find all the amenities that you’d want for a comfortable stay, including:
- Cable TV, Netflix and Apple TV
- Full self-catering kitchen
- Washing machine
- Second-floor balcony with ocean views
How much a night will set you back
This place seems to only be available for 3 nights midweek and then for 7 nights if you want to stay from Thursday or Friday.
I’ve popped in 3 nights midweek in December and it worked out at €1,047. This is by no means cheap, but it’s a unique spot, hence the price.
