We had meals and drinks here on 2 different occasions and were made to feel very welcome. Can highly recommend the turkey and ham dinner in particular and Peter, the owner, pours a perfect pint of Guinness! Definitely worth a visit.

Stopped for lunch after 17k cycle from Mulranny. First impression wasn't great as the interior is extremely dated but as it was the only sit-in place to eat on a Sunday afternoon, we had very little choice. Staff were very friendly and helpful - sat...us at a table 10min before opening time. We were pleasantly surprised with the food - simple but fresh and home cooked traditional dishes. Kids pasta and the Achill smoked salmon salad was plain but tasty. He had a roast of the day which was again simple but tasty.More

Great place to stop, staff very welcoming and friendly, creating a nice atmosphere which is tough in these Covid times. Very helpful when we had questions about the area, top notch service and the food was tasty and generous. We enjoyed the picnic tables at...the back in the sun with our two little people, lovely memories to take with us. Thanks to the team :-)More

Stayed elsewhere on the island but booked in for dinner here one night. First and foremost the staff were brilliant, every detail was important to them to ensure that we had a wonderful experience, this was even more impressive in the current climate. Food was...great, fresh and filling all for a very reasonable price, main attraction was the welcoming atmosphere. Would strongly recommend.More

The food was great and credit to the young staff, they were very professional especially during this unusual time. Special mention, We had a very helpful waiter (I'm sorry didn't get his name), he was absolute credit to the hotel, very competent at his job....We felt very safe when getting food in the bar and we left the bikes outside with no issue.More

We came here for lunch, and were pleasantly surprised by the food. Moreover, the service was very nice, and exceedingly helpful. Even though it appears slightly dated, everything has a place; old currency, funny facts and gadgets. Would highly recommend for food. We definitely will...come back on our next tripMore

We stopped in for a bite to eat on Friday 10th, (my wife, myself and 4 children). The service was 1st class and the food hot, fresh and delicious, clean plates all round. The gentleman who looked after us was just brilliant as were his...staff! I appreciate these are different times but, but if you get the chance visit the bar, support local business, and have a great meal!More

Hello Yes its a Quiet Hotel that Opens All year ex Xmas. A Warm Welcome you will get in an Old Styled Irish Hotel. But Do Phone before you Travel to Achill just in case there is a Funeral on.
