Our recent cycling trip to Achill was made complete by staying in this wonderful guest house. Anne was so welcoming and made our stay very memorable by her wonderful attention to very detail - the peat fires were lit when we arrived and kept burning beautifully until we arrived in after our evening meal, the decor is most beautifully colour...

This is a very special bed and breakfast! A real hidden gem, this was our second visit. Ann is a delightful hostess who made us feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble! A real beauty spot just beside the sea. Our room was very clean, comfortable with a spectacular view! Thank you and we highly recommend a visit!!

This was a gorgeous place to stay after a long day of cycling along the greenway from Newport. Anne gave us a very warm welcome and encouraged us to make ourselves at home in the two guest sitting rooms. The bedrooms had been well designed, very comfortable, luxurious beds and a view of the sea. The breakfast was possibly the...

Lovely B&B, fantastic breakfast and Ann was an amazing host in every way. I stayed with my sister and mother, we arrived late and Anne ensured that we had tea and a place to relax after long journey. A special thanks for going above and beyond the morning of the Achill quest race.

We spent two restful nights in this marvelous small inn which has been in the family for generations. Ann welcomed us and treated us both like royalty and family. She is a lovely person who truly enjoys catering to the needs of her guests. Her many kindnesses such as helping us book ahead, find dining options, and suggesting itineraries were...

The entire B&B is very roomy, cosy, well appointed but discrete, with a huge sun room that would be most welcoming on a stormy day. Our room was spacious, elegant without being fussy and offered a spectacular view of the bay and the cliffs beyond. The B&B is on a quiet lane a stone throw from the beach. Also, few...

Absolute fabulous stay. Anne was so kind and helpful, she couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was excellent, plenty of options which was good as we needed to be healthy before our race. Great location and rooms were very clean with great views.

Lovely accommodation. Great breakfast. Anne makes everyone so welcome. Very spacious rooms which were immaculately clean. Stayed there on a number of occasions over the years. Good location in Keel, close to all Achill amenities.

I could not have asked for more from my stay in Joyce's B&B. (Well, perhaps the delicious breakfast three times a day!) This B&B is located seconds from the Atlantic, a mere stroll down a scenic lane to beautiful Keel strand. With the window of my room open at night, I could hear the comforting hum of the waves. The...
