Tigh Mhic holiday cottage

Tigh Mhic Holiday Cottage, East Mayo, Ireland4_star_logo_slider

Built in 1903 and beautifully restored 105 years later, Tigh Mhic (‘Mick’s Place’ in English) is in the small village of Bracklagh in East Mayo – with Knock, Claremorris, Ballyhaunis and Knock airport nearby. While the cottage has kept its original proportions, the addition of new sash windows, underfloor heating, light, bright décor, high-quality fixtures and fittings and comfortable furniture make it a gem of a location. All this has helped Tigh Mhic achieve a 4* rating from Fáilte Ireland. This is the highest rating possible for any self-catering property in Ireland and Tigh Mhic is the only one in this part of Mayo to achieve this award.

Set in just over an acre, the property also includes three restored barns and two rescued miniature Shetland ponies – Timmy and Pancóg. They claim to do some of the gardening, but we have our doubts.

Tigh Mhic is an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the peace and relaxed pace of life here in East Mayo, or as a base to explore further into the County and beyond. For more information on Tigh Mhic itself and on some of what this part of Ireland has to offer, see our Gallery and Video pages.
