Welcome to one of the loveliest parts of Ireland! 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. 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 in the traditional style of Mayo and its design echoes the long, low, whitewashed houses that are such a feature of this part of the country. The name Laragan comes from the Gaelic làrgan meaning the side or slope of a hill.
Our family first came to live in Ballina in the early 1900’s and later discovered this wonderful plot of land overlooking Lough Conn. At the time there was a ruined cottage on the site which up to the end of 19th century had been a family home and shop selling various home-made items such as tallow for candles. We built the house in 2002 in the style of the old cottages in this part of Ireland.
