We are located in the West of Ireland, north of Galway, on the shores of Clew Bay. The nearest town is Westport: there is a direct train service to Dublin.

If you are driving from Westport, take the Leenane road. Knappagh is signposted about 3 miles from town. About a hundred metres after the sign you will pass a small road on your left immediately followed by the old church gate and a little bridge. You are almost there. We are the next driveway on the left, directly opposite an l-shaped house. There is a sign for Old Rectory Retreat at the entrance.

If you are coming from Leenane, watch out after the sign indicating Bohea. On your right you will soon pass the Texoil petrol station, shop and Autocare. now we are the second entrance on the right.

If you arrive by train, give us a call at 087 7764820.  We may be able to collect you from the station. There are always taxis waiting there.
