We stayed here earlier this year for a bankholiday weekend. Our hosts really made us feel at home- nearly part of the family! Clean, cosy and great location. Breakfast was good too. Highly recommend to anyone staying in Achill

Breakfast very good. Owners were very helpful. Pub close by, good pub food, close enough to walk. Beautiful view from breakfast room, Looking directly at ocean. Don't miss drive to beach, road narrow but worth the drive.

Nice quiet room, though a bit small. Excellent Irish breakfast. Very friendly hosts. We came without a car, and our host took us to a restaurant 5 km away when we arrived after 8 pm. He also took us to a beach where we could relax an walk around.

First visit to the Island and a great start, staying at the B&B. Michael and Roisin, the owners could not have been more attentive and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The location is ideal and near to all amenities. The breakfasts were enjoyable and the Apple Pie, was delicious. Wifi is available.I will... More

Great location for this wonderful B&B on Achill Island. Roisin and Michael (the owners) are two of the nicest people you could meet and are such a wonderful team, catering to all the whims of their guests. Nothing seems to be a bother and you can tell they really love what they do. The house itself is spotless, the bedrooms... More

A spotlessly clean bed and breakfast, nice rooms and crisp linen. Very fast wifi here. Michael the owner was especially nice and very helpful. Unfortunately the weather on the island was just awful during our time there which really made our stay in Achill a bit miserable. Returning to Teach Cruachan each evening was a blessing for us.

This is a lovely B & B in a beautiful location and Michael and Roisin were very welcoming and friendly. The room we had slept the four of us very comfortably and the view is magnificent. PS. The sausages were gorgeous.

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
