My husband, adult daughter and I stopped here on our trip to Achill. There was something for everyone's taste, and we all enjoyed the food. The waitress, a young-ish student-age gal, was polite and capable. I also loved the local artwork on the walls. This...More

Questions & Answers
I totally understand the situation with students it is the same in all rural areas. Unfortunately after trying a few places in Achill during our visit there you unfortunately seem to have been left with some of the worst. They have no interest in customer service or friendliness just seem to be clocking in their time to get paid at the end of the week. It makes the customers experience much more enjoyable if you have friendly staff who take a genuine interest in the customer. My family were so warmly welcomed last year the children looked forward to going back to see the nice lady who spoke to them , she even gave them a hug when they were going. I really hope you get your staff sorted soon or you may be left at the end of what is a very short season scratching your heads wondering what went wrong. Thank you for taking the time to reply to my query and I wish you luck for the remainder of your season.
