Laragan Lodge offers ideal self catering accommodation for one or two families. The house has four bedrooms (two ensuite), a large sitting room with dining area and fully equipped kitchen, and a second sitting room/additional bedroom. It is available for renting all year round.
Laragan Lodge lies tucked into the hillside above Lough Conn in one of the most beautiful parts of County Mayo in the West of Ireland (click here for a map). The house has wonderful views over the lake, north towards the dramatic slopes of Nephin Mountain and all around to wild, unspoilt countryside. The cottage was built recently in the traditional style and its design echoes the long, low, whitewashed houses that are such a feature of this part of the country.
The house is divided into two distinct parts. The front door leads into the hall. To the left is a magnificent sitting/dining room (with television, video and DVD) and fitted kitchen (with dishwasher, microwave, double oven, etc). A turf fire can be lit in the stone fireplace. From the window seats there are impressive views over the lake.
The sleeping accommodation is to the right of the hall. On the ground floor are two double bedrooms, the main bathroom and the master bedroom with shower room en suite. There is a washing machine and a tumble drier. Upstairs is a large bedroom with a queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom, and a further sitting room with a sofa which can be converted into a double bed.
The house is fully equipped. There is excellent insulation throughout and electric heating in every room. The garden and the large deck with its panoramic views are ideal places to sit out on sunny days (happily quite common in this part of Ireland!)
Activities available in the area include renowned brown trout fishing in Loughs Conn and Cullin. Boats can be hired out on a daily or weekly basis with oars or outboard motor. Ghillies are available for expert fishing advice. The river Moy, one of Ireland's most famous salmon rivers, flows through the neighbouring village of Foxford five miles away.
