Very good place and staff are welcoming. The house are located not far from the town center and just walk five minues and you are in the center. The breakfast is very delicious and you can take it until 9:30. I recommend.

Achill house is a nice and cosy B&B. The owner is extremely friendly. They serve a continental breakfast, not a traditional irish, but very well garnished. The room was small, but nice, with hairdryer.

Me and my wife booked one double room for one night to visit the city. I was unhappy with the place for the parking policy that they have. The place has only 4 parking spaces available! If you want to have one of them you have to mention it when you make your booking. Be aware that if you use... More

We were traveling in Ireland and booked the Achill House B & B. Not fancy, but it was clean and comfortable. The owner and staff were very helpful and we enjoyed the two nights we stayed there. There are no lifts, so if you have trouble with stairs let them know and they will assist you with your luggage. I... More

We stayed one night on our way from Dublin to Kilkenny and found the B&B comfortable and clean. The breakfast is unspectacular - packets of pre-packed cereals, toast, fresh fruit and one could have a cooked breakfast, which we did not take. We were welcomed and given good advice as to what to do and where to go for an... More

This was the most over rated over charged place we had the misfortune to stay in all of Ireland or anywhere else.The parking is was very difficult to say the least and necessitated us parking in another property. The breakfast was ordinary and the place generally looked as if it needed a good clean.

I recently stayed at Achill House for 4 nights while attending a conference at UCC. It was a 5 minute walk across to the campus and an easy walk into the centre of the city. The room was comfortable and well-appointed. I appreciated the free Wi Fi having come from a major hotel chain which had charged daily rates for... More

I recently stayed for one night B&B in Achill House as I was attending a course in UCC. I was made to feel so welcome that it was like a home from home. The service was fantastic. The 2 ladies were so friendly and helpful. They stored my luggage for the day of my course, gave me tea and toast... More

It was a nice place, but hard to get to. The wifi worked perfectly, and our room had a beautiful big bathroom. Very clean and friendly people. However we had rented a car and had to park across the street, not many restaurants around and the beds were old. That may just be a personal complaint as I found them... More
