The best B&B we have stayed in! The hosts treated us like family, we felt right at home. They were generous in supporting us to prepare for our daughter's wedding. Our bed was so comfortable. It was quit and peaceful and we woke to a breakfast most restaurants could not beat!! Try the scrambled eggs with Keem smoked salmon to... More

Maureen, it was a real pleasure to have you and yours in Teach Cruachan for this special occasion. We felt like part of your family as well, and it looks like it'll be a while before we have our own weddings to organise! We hope you'll make it back to Achill sometime :) Best wishes, Roisin and Michael More

For some reason the Irish Tourist Board only give Teach Cruachan 3 stars. From the minute you arrive you are given 5 star treatment. Our room (number 5) was one of the best I have ever stayed in, the breakfasts are superb and eaten in a dining room with lovely sea views. They do bike hire as well as accommodation... More

Frances, thank you so much for your kind review. It was lovely to meet you both, and we're delighted you enjoyed staying in the new deluxe room upstairs. Teach Cruachan is nearly 100 years old, so the other rooms are more 'cozy' than 'spacious'; we hope they're comfortable all the same. Enjoy the rest of your holiday as you head... More

House is beautiful, location is perfect - overlooking the sea. Bedrooms are spacious and tidy. The breakfast in the morn is beautiful and the 2 hosts can not do enough for you. Really can't rate this place highly enough - it was our second time staying there and we'll be back next year. 5/5

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.
