Welcome to the Achill Sound Hotel, or in the Irish language, Ostan Gob A'Choire. Peter and Loretta Connaughton, and all of the Connaughton family, assure you a famous warm welcome to the friendly and relaxed Achill Sound Hotel. The hotel is located just over the bridge from the mainland, and in the heart of Achill Sound, the main Achill village. Close to the village shops and amenities, the Achill Sound Hotel is one of the most popular hotels on Achill Island. For nearly a century we've been offering affordable accommodation, great home-cooked food from our bar/restaurant and the ideal location for exploring Achill and the surrounding areas. We are a family hotel and add a personal touch to brighten your stay from all the family and staff. Enjoy a pint in the bar, share a song or a story and feel part of the family and the village. We have a range of double, single, twin and family rooms to choose from. All rooms have TVs, and are en-suite. From here in Achill Sound you can also explore the rest of the beautiful island with its stunning Atlantic vistas, towering mountains, cliffs, unique plants and animals, intriguing and sad history, cosy pubs, safe and scenic bicycle greenway all the way from Westport, and perfect blue-flag beaches. At once windswept, barren, wild, lush, rich and beautiful. An adventure seekers dream, or a quiet Irish paradise to escape the busy world. Come visit Achill. The hotel has plenty of safe and free parking as well as storage for bicycles and packed lunches for exploring the island.

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,

Stopped in for lunch and we were really disappointed. While the young barman was lovely and very helpful the food was really bad. I had the prawn and salmon salad and it consisted of frozen shrimp, a few leaves, 1 slice of pepper and half a cherry tomato! The smoked salmon was

Dear David, We do regret that you were disappointed in your meal. While we understand that a particular dish cannot please everyone, our smoked salmon salad is consistently one of our returning customer's favourite menu items. We have never before received a complaint regarding the quality of our brown bread. Nevertheless, we are happy that you enjoyed the service, and wish that you had made us aware of your disappointment, as we could have brought you a different dish. We hope that you change your mind about trying us again. Kind regards, Achill Sound Hotel

Visited here with my family and not one of us left disappointed. I can recommend the Sunday roast, healthy portions of meat and vegetables and the gravy added a nice flavour to the whole meal. And for those of you that have a sweet tooth, the dessert menu has something for

We would highly recommend this place for a quiet drink and bite to eat l, but also somewhere to have a drink and a chat and some amazing food. They are not lying when they say they do the best fish and chips. Our 1 yr old was a big fan of the pasta as you can see and they are
