A rare and truly unique opportunity to acquire a period residence in such close proximity to Westport on 4.45 HA/11 acres and affording complete privacy. This is one of the most compelling properties to have been offered to the local market for some considerable time. Viewing is highly recommended and strictly by prior appointment.


The property has an ideal, tranquil and private location yet is only located 1.5kms from the town centre of Westport in beautiful west County Mayo. Positioned to the north of Westport directly off the (N59) Newport Road, this roadway is undergoing substantial improvements which, once completed, will divert traffic out of Westport and create even more efficient connectivity from this location. The surrounding area is largely in agricultural use interspersed with a small number of private houses. The Greenway (a designated walking, running, cycling route which runs around Westport and northwards all the way to Achill) runs immediately beneath a bridge of the private avenue on what was the old Achill railway line.          

The historic and charming town of Westport is positioned close by and its tree lined streets are full of interesting shops, artesian food producers, cafes, numerous fine restaurants and inviting pubs. Many of the larger retailers are also to be found including Tesco, Supervalu and Lidl together with a broad range of amenities and leisure facilities. Westport is blessed with stunning scenery positioned on the shores of Clew Bay and at the foot of Croagh Patrick. There is plenty to occupy one's self which includes Championship Golf, Hiking, Sailing, Surfing, Wind Surfing, Salt and fresh water Fishing, a number of blue flag beaches and the historic Westport House Estate. Westport is the perfect location from which to explore Connemara,  Achill Island and the off shore Islands of Clare Island and Inishturk.

Westport was voted the best place to live in 2013 by the Irish Times and has a compelling lifestyle appeal with excellent local employers making this the ideal location for either a permanent move, to own a second home or to retire.


The property is a charming detached period house dating from c. mid-eighteenth century. It is mostly single storey and built in cut limestone under a pitched slate roof. In addition to the main house there is a self-contained 3 bed flat and a series of out offices and stores. There is also a derelict gate lodge which could be restored. In all there is some 465 sq.m of accommodation on 4.45HA/11 Acres of lands.

For the last 26 years the property has been used as accommodation and teaching facilities for both foreign  and Irish students. Historically  the house was built as and remained in use as a private residence until 1989/1990. It has been very well maintained by the present owners during their tenure and is generally presented in good condition throughout. However, a new purchaser  may decide to occupy it as a private residence and re-instate it accordingly and are therefore likely to undertake refurbishment of the property. The 3 bed flat is perfect as a  guest suite while the ground floor underneath same could  be used as offices or workshops depending on requirements .

There are a variety of potential uses for this property which could include a school, guest house, boutique hotel, or private residence.


The property has full planning permission for its current use and is fully compliant. The property is located outside of Westport urban area and therefore is un-zoned. We are selling the property subject to Contract only and therefore conditional planning offers will not be considered. The property is not a protected structure.



Rectangular parcel of lands running westwards off the N59 divided by the avenue. Gate lodge located to the north of entrance road with main residence positioned on the western end of the division . The lands to the north are level good quality grazing / meadowland and may offer some further development potential whilst the lands to the south are also good grazing quality but incorporate steep gradients.
