Great location, Super friendly welcome and lovely breakfast all at a great price. Rooms are very spacious and there is ample parking. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance too. I will definitely go to Achill Guest House again!

Okay fine place to stay when going to the BBC Good Food Show. We arrived late, due to a delayed flight, but fortunately that was not a problem. We didnt spot the place the first time we drove by, but found it on our second trip down the road.

Stayed here with my husband, two daughters & baby grand daughter. Nothing was too much trouble for Mary. We arrived early, after an early morning 2 hour drive, as we were going to a wedding nearby. Mary gave us a family room for us to get ready in, as our rooms were not quite ready. Our own rooms were very... More

Fantastic last minute arrangements following recommendation from a friend. Very accommodating when plans changed at last minute. Room was great, very comfy bed, beamed ceiling, large flat screen tv, complimentary toiletries and tea/coffee. Room was on ground floor and door direct to outside. Will be staying here when in area again - thank you

Stayed here for the first time for 2 nights when visiting the gadget show at Birmingham NEC at the weekend. Friendly owner Mary gave us a choice of large doubles upstairs and was very welcoming with instant info on the village and places to eat. Knowel is an excellent location for the NEC as it took 10mims to drive there... More

Just returned from 5 nights at the Achill. I understand they are updating the guest house but our room was shabby and grubby. Mary is a lovely lady and the breakfast was great and very good value but our room needed a good clean. The only very small bin in our room was still full of previous occupants rubbish. It... More
