It occupies an elevated situation and includes an open plan sitting/dining room with magnificent views. The lodge is surrounded by well-maintained gardens and includes a detached garage. Mature conifers are situated to the west of the house, providing privacy and shelter. A robot lawnmower was installed in 2019.

    Derrypark Cottages 1 & 2 are two elegant, semi-detached cottages in an L-shaped formation. They were constructed in 1991 to a traditional design with stone walls beneath a pitched slate roof. With accommodation laid out over a single storey, internal features include Liscannor flagstone floors, stoves, exposed beams and stone walls.

    The cottages are accessed off the internal road leading to Derrypark Lodge. There is a parking area and terrace. Lying to the east of the cottages is a small range of outbuildings including a hay shed, barn and store.

    The land includes scrubland, rocky outcrops and an area for launching boats.

It lies within the counties of Mayo and Galway. Along with Lough Corrib, it is one of the best-known brown trout fishing loughs in Ireland. The lough is also famous for its large ferox trout. It has played host to the World Cup Trout Fly Fishing Competition since 1953.
