We were lucky with the weather and it was a spectacular drive all the way to Keem. After checking in with Roisin we took her advice and drove around to Keem Bay. Feeling energetic after a couple of hours in the car we walked to the top of the mountain where there was an old artillery post. It was a... More

We could only stay on Achill Island one night on our whirlwind tour of Ireland. Teach Cruachan is a lovely B&B with cosy, well-appointed rooms, beautiful views of the ocean and gracious, helpful hosts in Roisin and Michael. The breakfast was excellent, especially given how ravenous we all were after all the climbing and walking we got up to on... More

Achill Island is simply breath-takingly spectacular & showcases the very best of the landscape that Ireland is best known for - wild coastline, rugged beaches, mountain & incredible cliff views onto the Atlantic ocean (next stop 3400 miles away is the US!) around cosy green fields & dark bogland, stone walls & lots of sheep!

This B&B is the birthplace of Michael who, along with his wife, Roisin, provide a warm and welcoming experience at Teach Cruachan. We stayed for 2 days (September 7 and 8) and enjoyed the views, the diing area and lounge. Even got a peek at their sweet dog. The beaches on Achill Island are awesome and I didn't want to... More

Hi Joanie, it's very nice of you to review Teach Cruachan, and we really enjoyed having you here. Cindy the Golden Retriever loves it when guests find her in her doggie zone. She doesn't usually get to meet the visitors, but typical of her breed she loves people as much as we do. Hope to see you in Dooagh again... More

I can only confirm other reviews that Teach Cruachan was a wonderful stop on our month long tour of Ireland, our only regret is that we only got to spend one night, I look forward to when we can return for a much longer stay.
