Collanmore Island

Holiday makers who use Airbnb know there are plenty of weird and wonderful, budget or luxurious places to stay on the service.

But how about instead of staying in just a room or building you could go and stay on an entire secluded island instead?

And wouldn’t it be all the better if that island happened to be off the coast of Ireland?

Well, if that is what floats your boat you could be in for a treat – once travel restrictions are lifted of course.

A stay at Collanmore Island Lodge will cost €1,500 per night – although there are four bedrooms and 12 beds so you can group together with friends or family and share the cost.

It is off the coast of Co Mayo and visible from Crough Patrick – the mountain named after Ireland’s patron saint. This is where he banished the snakes from Ireland, according to the legend.

Croagh Patrick is also popular with tourists and religious pilgrims and is known for its spectacular ‘rolling sun’ optical illusion – where the sun appears to roll down the mountain as it sets. This can only be seen on April 18th and August 24th each year.

The listing on Airbnb reads: “Our lodge is in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Clew Bay, just 10 mins from the fantastic town of Westport. The lodge has its own private bar amenity area, just bring your own drinks. Hot tub, steam room, 12 pod beds.

“It really is a super place for any kind of a party with friends or family. The return ferry is €10pp. The Lodge sleeps 22 people. It’s a perfect location for Hen parties. Please get in touch for more details.”

As well as Clew Bay and Mayo, there is a host of things to do all along the West Coast of Ireland – if you’re prepared for a bit of a drive.

It’s famous for the Wild Atlantic Way which covers the entire West coast from Co Donegal in the north to Co Cork in the south and takes in places such as Galway and Killarney.

The scenery is stunning and it certainly would be a great setting for summer parties in the not too distant future.

Despite its remote location, there is wifi and cable TV available for winding down on the morning after.
