“We had a fantastic time at Bertra Beach Cottage. Hilary had everything ready for us and met us when we arrived. The cottage is a lovely retreat away, and very comfortable for two people. Croagh Patrick is a stone’s throw away and well worth the climb!” Katie F., Dublin
“Great stay at this little cottage. Right next to the beach. About a 15 minute drive to Westport. Ideal for climbing Croagh Patrick. Hilary was the perfect host and could not have been more helpful.” Lee O., Cork
