Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the second time that we have stayed at Stella Maris. What can we say, it was just wonderful. The owner Clodagh is a lovely lady and nothing is too much trouble, we were made to feel very welcome.
The breakfast options are top class and freshly prepared each morning. I can highly recommend the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon - delicious.
The views from our bedroom and the breakfast room are amazing. The beach is literally at the end of the garden and even in the height of August with amazing weather it was very peaceful with not many people on it. It’s a great place to chill and have a swim.
The rooms are of the highest quality, you even get a posh coffee machine, which is nice.
There is a lovely pub ‘The Amethyst’
At the top of the road (3 minute walk) which serves top quality food.
If you are thinking about booking a room here, I’d say just book, you won’t regret it.

Stella Maris is a fabulous B&B and we would definitely return next time we visit Achill Island. The location is perfect and it has its own pathway down to the beach. Mary was a fabulous host and took the time to greet us by name every time we spoke to her, also gave some excellent recommendations about eating out. The rooms are immaculate with everything you might need. The complimentary breakfast pack was perfect and we really enjoyed the view from our room out over Keel. We stayed in the Junior Suite which was lovely. Would highly recommend Stella Maris. Thank you Mary!

Stella Maris is beautiful B&B located steps from Keel Beach with the most amazing views of the Cathedral Rocks, Minaun Cliffs, and the distant Clare Island across the outer Clew Bay. The rooms are wonderfully adorn, clean and comfortable. The owners are very helpful and accomodating. Morning breakfast was outstanding.
One of the best places to explore Achill Island and all its beauty, and meet the friendly local residents. Be sure to stay a few days.

We stayed in a triple room at the Stella Maris B&B for 2 nights, and we wished we had booked for longer. We had a lovely bright room with tea and coffee making facilities. The room was really clean and had everything we needed. We had a large window in our room which had gorgeous views of the sea. There is a shop, takeaway and a couple of bars within walking distance of the b&b. And at the end of the garden, there’s a little walkway leading you to the beach. It’s literally less than a minutes walk from the b&b to the beach. We got a breakfast packed dropped at the door each morning which set us up nicely for the day. The hosts were so accommodating and friendly. Would definitely recommend this b&b and I will definitely be returning in the future.

We had a wonderful two night stay. The owner is very friendly and runs a very nice B&B. Breakfast was delicious and a great start to our day. There was no problem accommodating special requests for breakfast. Achill Island is a treasure to discover and this was the perfect starting point

We had a nice one-night stay here in a clean and cozy room with a beautiful view of the ocean and Minaun Cliffs. Lobby area really ornate! Owner and staff were lovely and welcoming. Lots of breakfast options that were delicious. Location in Keel was perfect, and access to the Keel Strand was a plus. (Especially when some local sheep greeted us.) And a tip - the Ár Bia Mara food truck is a great option for lunch and dinner; check their hours.

I'm sure there are a number of good options on Achill but clearly Stella Maris is one of the best. Accommodations are excellent: large well-outfitted rooms with very nice bathrooms ensuite. Everything sparkly clean. It's right on the beach, with its own private gate. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. And the breakfast, a combination of menu and continental, deserves a special mention.

Location was beautiful and walkable to the beach. The room was perfectly clean with nice linens and decorations. The coffee maker was a nice addition. We walked the beach and went to the local town. The host was kind and they made breakfast early for us to get on the road.

Room Tip: Most restaurants in town were closed out of season. We found a nice place a short drive away.
