Stayed here with our daughter for two nights at the weekend. Arrived to a warm welcome from Sinead & a lovely cup of tea. Our room was beautifully decorated, spacious & spotlessly clean with gorgeous sea views. Sinead was a wonderful hostess, offering plenty of advice on how to make the most of our short stay on Achill. We were...

Sinead runs a thoroughly modern, and exceptionally clean and well-appointed, guesthouse in a lovely part of Achill Island. My bedroom was tastefully decorated, with a large and comfortable bed, and ample storage. The bathroom was gleaming, with lots of hot water, and a seemingly unlimited supply of towels. Breakfast, chosen from a restaurant-worthy menu, is delicious. The french toast, with...

We were so lucky to find such a wonderful B&B with such a delightful hostess. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived. The room was spotless and nicely appointed - such attention to detail. A selection of breakfasts are made to order and served with home made scones and brown bread. The shower pressure was very good....

This is a great new B&B. Pleasant rooms, drinks on arrival and a very knowledgeable host. The rooms are ample and lightly decorated. A choice at breakfast from simple scrambled eggs to full Irish. Located in a new house with plenty of parking.

We stayed at the waters edge one blustery evening in November. I believe it was the only option open in Achill at the time of year, but we were not disappointed. Our room was comfortable and cozy. We especially liked the windows and skylights with lovely views. Sinead was kind and accommodating and a wonderful host. She gave us great...

Sinead's house is lovely and so is the host herself. What a fun and bubbly person to welcome us to her home. We were 3 adults to occupy 2 spacious, wonderfully decorated bedrooms. They were bright and comfortable. The bedrooms were not en-suite. That didn't matter at all though since we were the only ones using the bathroom in the...

We spent a weekend in this really lovely B and B. The house is modern with every convenience and is spotlessly clean. A great base to explore Achill and with Sinead's guidance and helpful advice we had a brilliant time exploring the fantastic coastline. We will certainly be back!
