I literally could not fault this B&B one bit! We had such a lovely stay and Sinead was so welcoming and also very helpful when we were planning our evening out. The french toast for breakfast was the nicest I've ever had - definitely worth a try!

It's in a great location for exploring the island. The host Sinead gave us great tips for where to visit she was very welcoming and knowledgeable on the area. The room was lovely and the breakfast was awesome! Choc chip French toast! Yum! I'm a veggie and there was plenty of options to satisfy me.

Really enjoyed our night at the B&B. It was super clean, comfortable and a great location. You definitely need a car though. Breakfast was really great with a very generous selection and Sinead was a lovely host. Would definitely go back and possibly stay for longer.

We'd never been to Achill but Sinead gave us lots of great tips about what to do and how to go about doing it. Such a great B&B with nicer furnishings and breakfast than any of the 4* hotels we've stayed in since! Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Achill.

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... More

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.... More

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.
