We stayed here for 2 nights in early August, and we were so glad we picked this nice B&B. The owners were so helpful, they gave us a map and showed us the best places to visit. Achill is such a beautiful place, we had no idea!! Our room was really clean and comfortable, with a big bed and a... More

Great stay at Teach Cruachan. Lovely B&B with delicious breakfast! Michael and Roisin are very helpful and super hosts. B&B is a short drive from beautiful Keem beach and excellent base from which to explore the island. Highly recommend to others.

We stayed for two nights in this B&B 27-28/06/14 I chose this B&B because it offered a large family room. We booked this as we like space and that is what we got. The room was light, airy and restful with velux windows looking out onto the bay. The bed and bedding comfortable.Everything was spotlessly clean,the breakfast was good and... More

Achill is definitely worth a visit and this is a fantastic place to stay. Small and perfectly formed and good value too. Very friendly staff and a nice breakfast. Rooms are simple but enough space and a decent bathroom.

Hi Ben, thanks so much for taking the time to review Teach Cruachan - it's great to get good feedback. We particularly love your comment, "small and perfectly formed". They say that about Tom Cruise, so it's a great compliment (though he has a while before he reaches nearly 100 years old)! Hope you make it back to Achill some... More

My family spent two nights in Achill and absolutely loved the Teach Cruachan! My room faced the ocean and was incredibly clean and comfortable. The place is walking distance from several pubs and in a great location to explore Achill. Roisin and Michael were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had several options and all were delicious. We loved that we... More

We were only in Teach Cruachan a few days but if felt like we could stay forever. The hospitality was superb and our hosts Michael, Roisin & Michael Junior could not have done enough for us. Bedroom was excellent and had a beautiful view over Dooagh Bay and breakfasts were also excellent and kept us going for a 4-5 hour... More

First things first, Roisin and Michael are the perfect hosts. Both work hard to make you feel like a special guest in their home. Roisin is brilliant in the kitchen and Michael is wonderfully funny and personable. Our room was large and airy with windows facing towards the sea. Breakfast was beyond filling and fabulously delicious. Watching the dolphins play... More

We spent a full weekend at this lovely B&B. This place has been running for many years so everything is very professional. We took the sea view room which, though faces the front parking, also has great sea views and not noisy at all. The room is basic but comfortable, plenty of hot water and excellent wifi. Breakfast is very... More

Ann & I returned to Roisìn & Michael's lovely comfortable home for a quick stay & were not disappointed. Very comfortable room with a sea view & every facility. Breakfast was top quality & plentiful too. Their lovely welcome & hospitality was worth our 660km road journey from Dublin & back. Their home in Dooagh, Achill, makes a great base... More

Our first stay on Achill and we picked a gem of a B&B. Roisin and Michael were great. Breakfasts were excellent. The only thing that didn't cooperate was the weather!! Still we had a great time for our two days at Teach Cruachan. The views out the front of the B&B are fantastic, especially when the clouds lift!! We were... More

Thanks a million for your lovely review! What a pity you couldn't wait in Achill until the weather picked up, because it's been glorious for the past week! Delighted the dolphins made an appearance for you. They were around yesterday, but no sign of them today yet. Hope to see you again sometime in the future, Roisin and Michael More
