About Yvonne Drew

I am a wife and mother of 5 children ranging from 30 down to 6 !! I enjoy gardening, reading, entertaining and travelling. We moved to Ireland from London nearly 10 years ago and just love Irish Life in the countryside. We live 2 hours away from Belmullet and love to visit as often as possible.

Yvonne Drew purchased this house in 2008

Why Yvonne Drew chose Belmullet

We bought a site and built our beautiful beach house because my husband is a Architect and loves designing and building houses. We love the area because it is so tranquil and therapeutic with the sea on all sides ! The people are so friendly in this part of Mayo and the weather like the landscape is so dramatic. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets and great storms !!

What makes this house unique

Walking on the beach. Swimming in the clean sea. Picnics and Barbeques. Going on a boat trip to one of the islands. Walking uo to the friendly local pub. Sitting by the log burning stove or open fire in the evenings, with a glass of wine and a good book. Looking out at the sea, feeling the warmth of the underfloor heating on cooler mornings. Star gazing in the evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The beach house is lovely. We stayed in august and the weather was beautiful. The house is warm and bright due to the big windows in every room. We had a lovely evening BBQ on the beach a short walk from the house and was treated to a visit and free display by dolphins the children were entranced. Pat and Brian Donaghy. Brighton, England.

I had a short Easter break at the beach house with my son. It was bright and breezy perfect for long walks around the bay. I loved getting back to the beach house and lighting the log burning stove and curling up with a book, glass of wine and gazing out at the sea. Bliss! Deana Fitzgerald and Alex. Upminster, essex, England.

We arrived very late for our autumn break to the beach house, the owners had put the underfloor heating on the floors were so toasty our 7 year old lay on the floor, they had left a basket with wine, snacks and other bits even toothpaste which we had forgotten, so grateful. Thank you Yvonne. Susan, John and David, Yorkshire

Fabulous property with amazing sea views

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week in this property in October 2017 with a family of 4 and 2 big dogs. The house is huge and immaculate throughout with plenty of room outside too. It's very well equipped with everything you need including a washing machine and dishwasher. The views are absolutely stunning, especially at night, and it was so peaceful to gaze at the sea with a glass of wine from the welcome pack left by the owner. This was very thoughtful - and much appreciated!

We had the added bonus of Hope the donkey (lawnmower) in the garden and he certainly liked his carrots and apple - although he also liked to kick over his water bucket to get your attention and more carrots!.

The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away and was really clean. There are plenty nice walks around the house and the sea air is so fresh.The village pub is about 15 min walk away and is cozy and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this property.

House and area was lovely, we arrived late on a bank holiday weekend, The nearest shop that sold basics like milk and bread was 19 kms away, So beware , take a few days supply with you, A welcome pack was so welcoming, Lovely beech 5 minutes walk, but not safe for swimming, due to strong current activity. Local Bar also very welcoming, Not forgetting, wee centre wher you get a lovely cup of tea served by a very friendly lady, Enjoyed every minute of this Fantastic part of the World

Owner's Response: I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Beach House and thanks very much for your comments that's a good point about guests arriving late on bank holidays and if I'm aware of that I can leave basic provisions with the Welcome basket ! Future guests please note there is a shop in the village 1km up road that is open 7 days a week :)

great place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

a lovely relaxing break, the house was very light and warm and lots of space. Close to the beach which was great as my dog and i spent quite a lot of the time me walking and her chasing seagulls plus jumping in and out of rockpools....her not me.! So peaceful a place to stay. And ofcourse Yvonne kindly left a treat bag as a welcome and kind thought...thank you.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the beach house to find a lovely welcome basket waiting for us complete with wine and treats for the children. Well needed after a long journey. So thoughtful.

The house is beautiful, really modern with gorgeous furniture and bedding in each room. Our children loved the space to run around, they especially loved the outside of the property, loads of space to play safely!

Having family in the area, we return every year and have stayed in many local holiday rentals, the beach house is by far the best!

Great location! We enjoyed being able to walk to the shop, playground and the pub.

We will 100% be back. Thanks Yvonne!! xx

Lovely house in peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week in July with a family of 6 (4 kids aged 10-15). We had a great week here. The house was well equipped, light and warm. It felt light and spacious with big windows giving views in all directions. Nearest beach, 5 mins away on foot, was beautiful, not great for swimming though. Others within 10-15 mins drive were elly bay and (our favourite) mullaghroe which are both blue flag beaches with lovely sand and crystal clear water. We also enjoyed the erris head loop walk (easy walking, lovely views, take a waterproof!) Blacksod bay (beautiful views over achill) and belmullet tidal swimming pool (bracing but fun!). Eurospar in belmullet fine for groceries, shop in aughleam for milk etc.

Overall a lovely week in a great house. Could have spent longer, would happily return.

Belmullet is on a peninsular and is therefore surrounded with many beaches lots of which have blue flags. Dramatic coastline. Our house is a five minute walk to the nearest beach which is lovely for walking, paddling and picnicking. There are lots of safe beaches for swimming 5 minute drive away or twenty minute walk. Fishing trips, boat trips and surf lessons all available enquire locally. Horseriding nearby and bike hire in local village.


Car is essential. Nearest airport Knock.


Aughleam village just over a mile away. Belmullet Town 14 miles.

Further Details:

Belmullet Town has a lovely sea food restaurant, hotels, pubs supermarkets, and many other shops, banks etc. Bowling. Horseriding. bike hire.

Nearest large towns are Castlebar and Ballina.
