The Achill Sound Hotel is in a great location to explore Achill. It has a Super Value , chemist, small shop and art gallery/shop beside it.
The hotel is very moderately priced and good value for money. The room was clean and had a good shower. The breakfast was freshly cooked and the dinner menu was very tasty and inexpensive.
The staff are very friendly and the owner would talk the legs off a chair . He gave good tourist spot advice and was always polite and friendly
The place needs a serious overhaul... if the overpriced below average food doesn’t make enough money sell the place and let someone else bring it into modern times. Useless WiFi, TV’s from 1985 in each room, smell of damp everywhere...the lost goes on.
Achill was scenically beautiful but the place needs about 15-20 decent places for food as it’s abysmal.
Stayed here 2 nights. Rooms in very bad need of updating. Very small basic rooms & ensuite with dampness patches that were painted over & musty smell. Teeny Tiny TV with one fuzzy channel. Good location, suitable for exploring the island. Asked million questions on where we were going & what time we would be back at. One of the owners was always around & would just appear, the minute we came out our room in the morning one of them would be there asking if we were going for breakfast & if we came back in the evenings, one of them would follow us to our room asking us if we were going to be having something to eat & drink downstairs in the bar. They also insisted on leaving our keys at the desk every time we went out & wanted to know what time we would be back at, at night. It was like living at home. We found it very odd behavior to be honest.
This small family owned hotel has a breakfast option and a pub/restaurant attached for lunch, dinner or a drink. Pete the owner is always friendly and willing to have a chat to fill you in on the beautiful island. The rooms are a tad small, but the price makes up for it. Plus, you're not in Achill to stay in your room all day!
Stayed here for wknd with family . Lovely hotel and the staff are the best so friendly and helpful. Food in the bar is fab and fantastic value. Breakfast was great too.Lots of parking available . Really comfortable room & warm too.
Only suggestion would be put a smal breakie menu on tables for people so they know whats on offer.
Would defo return.
