I'm a big fan of this place! Really friendly atmosphere, cosy surf lounge, one can watch surf movies, lots of live music. Food is simple but really good - we had pizza, which was fantastic, baked hake and seafood risotto. Pizza was really great!! I definitely recommend!

Had dinner here, food was great, had hake on a bed of mash and it was really good. My friends had the stake and lamb, all of it was great, would definitely go back. Staff were very friendly and service was great. They also do really nice pizzas Highly recommend a visit.

From the welcome at the door from owner Francois, the service from the super friendly staff, lovely pizza and live music (including some impromptu jamming with other diners), we had a great evening at Pure Magic - it definitely lived up to its name!!!

Strayed upon Pure Magic by accident. Its a charming, warm and welcoming with a sort of continental theme to it. Food was fab and staff very helpful. Well worth a visit if your staying in or around Achill.

Apart from a somewhat minor issue which the very charming French man sorted out with minimal fuss, this stay was perfect. It could be that Achill is just beautiful and this added to its charm, but I think it can rightly claim itself as being magical. All the rooms are in the style of the places where the owner has...

This is a hideaway from generic mass tourism at the foot of a mountain on an island on the west coast of Ireland.

We were recommended to go here, and not sorry we did! Lovely atmosphere inside and bundles of kids books/toys dotted around to keep our 4year old happy while we waited for food. Pizza and pasta dishes were delicious and service was quick. Would eat hear again next time we visit achill.
