They even made a Peat Fire for us! Lovely views of the Atlantic from our room! The owners were knowledgeable about their island and about the hikes! It was all great ! We would go back with our children to see the cliffs!

My husband and I stayed for two nights at "Teach Cruachan" and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners Roisin and Michael were more than helpful. I would highly recommend this B&B and with a bit of luck we will visit again.

I stayed at Teach Cruachan on 26th and 27th June, 2015, with my wife and 10 year old daughter. We had a great time. Roisin and Michael are a lovely couple, friendly, helpful, approachable and excellent at their job. Teach Cruachan is immaculately clean, with very comfortable beds, and breakfast is delicious. Keem beach is less than 2 miles away.... More

Teach Cruachan was our favorite B & B during our 6 weeks in northwest Ireland. The location, room, views, hosts and breakfast were top-notch. We would stay there again and highly recommend this B & B to anyone going to Achill Island.

As most Irish B&Bs, this was spotless, welcoming and nicely placed on the Island. The smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast were not only delicious but well presented too. Would return without hesitation.

We started our two week stay in Ireland at TC on Achill Ireland. Our hosts were friendly and outgoing and were a font of good info on sights and restaurants. The room was very comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. A great two day stay!

Stayed here in March. Roisin and Michael were the perfect hosts. We were greeted by Michaels sister Kathleen on arrival with a pot of tea and biscuits, (nice touch.). Breakfast on both mornings was delicious. As it was very stormy the views from the bedroom and dining room overlooking the sea was incredible. Will definitely be back again.

The B&B is in a very quiet surrounding at the vety end of Achill island, incl Ocean view. Roisin made us feel at home. Breakfast was plenty and delicious. Esp the salmon. This is def a place to come back. highly recommended if you visit Achill.
