“We have just completed an 11 day stay at Paul's home, and it was terrific. We stayed at 3 homes for a week plus at each location, and this was the best. The home has plenty of room, with a large family room and a living room w a great fireplace. Louisbourgh is a tiny town, but you will know many people in a few days, and it has 3 great restaurants. It is only 20 minutes west of Westport, and they are bigger with more bells and whistles.”
