History of the station

Belmullet Coastguard Station was built around 1795 and was in operation until the formation of theold building
Irish Free State. Three families lived and worked there, monitoring the coastline for any activity. The station fell into disrepair when the roof was removed in the 1960′s. In 2009 work started on restoring the building to its former glory and by July 2010 the restoration was complete. While the building has been completely rebuilt it retains its original features and character & provides luxury self catering accommodation in the Belmullet area.

Restoration of the Station

Due to the size of the original building we decided from the start to restore one half of the station as our own home and develop the other half for the self catering market. Set on almost 1 acre, the self catering section, which is over 1500sq foot has its own private entrances & is fully self contained. The house has been finished to the highest standard, with top quality furniture and appliances to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable.
Our contribution to the enviornment may be small but it is definitly effective, as well as using top quality insulation both in the cavity and on the external walls we also installed solar panels for the domestic hot water, these supply water which can reach temperatures over 65′c in the summer months.
