Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Mayo / Castlebar / Jacks Old Cottage
Nestled in the heart of Islandeady, this pain-stakingly restored cottage takes us back to a time when the pace of life was much slower... Come visit this homestead that was built nearly two centuries ago and experience what life was like in an age gone by.Discover how to plan a Castlebar trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
Come sit by the inviting open fire, or walk through the refurnished rooms and ask questions about the many old objects you'll find all around you. Imagine you are in the cailleach at night and pretending to sleep whilst your family and neighbours swap songs and ghost stories.
Explore outside and partake in the daily chores; bring in the turf, go to the well, feed the hens and gather the eggs, get hay for the donkeys, or drive home the cows for milking.
Come get a new appreciation for your own life today, and for the life lived by our own gone before us.
