Description from owner
Shraigh Hill is situated five miles (7 minutes drive) from the town of Belmullet and one mile from the village of Glencastle. The property is built to a superbly high standard, individually designed and set on an unrivalled site with a 270 degree sea view, overlooking Claggen Island, the Atlantic and Achill Island.
This is one of the most traditional and friendly rural areas in the whole Ireland. Belmullet town has a host of shops, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and bike hire etc. whilst Geesala and Bangor Erris are within 10 min drive and offer supermarket, petrol stations and pubs.
Shore fishing is particularly good all round the area. Miles of accessible coastline and almost deserted beaches guarantee the amateur or professional fisherman perfect peace. With over 50 varieties of fish known to inhabit the waters off the shores of Belmullet, the sea-angler is also well rewarded with the best all-round sea angling waters in Ireland.The Belmullet Sea Angling Club run a number of open competitions during the year.
For golfing enthusiasts Carne Golf Club is a class of its own and was voted one of the top ten links courses in the whole of Europe. This exciting links course, with a natural setting of incomparable beauty, was designed by Eddie Hackett around splendid sand dunes on ancient commonage. The elevated tees and plateau greens exploit the beauty, while the deceptive dog-legs and lurking bunkers will punish the careless shot.
Members and non-members are welcome.
For surfers and kitesurfers Shraigh beach is beautiful, safe and welcoming, whilst for those seeking peace and relaxation this is one of the most idyllic spots in the region.

The house was spacious and very comfortable especially the beds, plenty of hot water and logs for the fire the kitchen was big and the table was big enough to fit our family of nine around very easily. There was a lovely welcome pack and milk in the fridge .Mary was lovely who met us and made us most welcome, we will definitely come back here again the beaches are fabulous and often deserted the dogs loved their walks on the beach.The house is well situated for touring Mayo Achill island is lovely to visit.Can I just take this opportunity to thank Paul for all his help and prompt replies to any of my queries and for letting us stay in his lovely home kind regards and best wishes Andrea and family

“Home from home”
This is the perfect accommodation for friends or family to get away from it all or just get together. The house is ideally named, as the views of the island and beach are fantastic. As well as the four bedrooms and three bathrooms, you are spoiled for living accommodation and a fantastic sun room to watch the sun going down. The owners made us feel so welcome. Will definitely be going back.
Response from the owner HI Malachy, thanks so much for the great review and for choosing Island View House, we really appreciate it. Look forward to welcoming you again in future, all the best, Paul
