#5 of 7 B&Bs / Inns in Achill Sound
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.

Can't recommend this place enough. We were staying in Achill and could not find anywhere open for dinner (,2nd WK September). We landed here and on first sight were not confident. Walked in and we were warmly greeted by the owner lady. We had a drink and ordered fish and chips and a baby bowl which arrived quickly. The male owner arrived and also warmly greeted us and stopped for a chat. The fish came out and it was beautiful. So moist and fresh. The prices were also very reasonable. Would recommend this place to anyone in the area, we will for sure be calling here again.

We have spent a wonderful week in Achil and dined at the Achill Sound Hotel. Peter and all his staff were so welcoming and great fun! They also looked after us so well. The food also was very good and we didn't want to dine anywhere else. We have taken away such happy memories and hope to stay at this hotel in the near future. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Charming country family run business. We stayed Saturday night. Room clean and comfy. Great staff. We had dinner in the bar and food was great. Evening music and roaring stove fire. What more could we ask for! Peter and his family are very welcoming and show Irish hospitality at its best. Many thanks.
