Rosnakilly is situated on Clew Bay, Westport, Co Mayo, Ireland approx half way between the picturesque towns of Westport and Newport.
The house ('Croibh-inis') is situated on the sheltered side of a circa 120 acres land mass which is 'practically an island'. There is however direct road access over a narrow stretch of land ( ie an isthmus) to Rosnakilly.
The house enjoys a shore frontage of approx 70 metres with its own mooring buoy for those who wish to bring their own boat. At high tide the sea is no more than 4 metres from the front gate and 35 metres from the house itself.
The 12 acre site stretches back up behind the house , rising to a hill ( with breath taking panoramic views, looking South to Murrisk and Croagh Patrick , West to the numerous islands of the bay ,way out to Clare Island and North towards Newport and the spectacular Nephin mountains.
The site then descends back down towards the sea once more where there is access to the shore, and a small secluded pebble beach. Furthermore this area of the site expands into 4 small fields ( ideal for picnics, wildlife, birdwatching and walking ) before converging into a point which juts out into the sea.
This latter area of the site enjoys approx a 1 kilometre of shore frontage with excellent vantage points for rod fishing.
