It wasn't really busy, there were some tables in use but there were others that were free. I noticed that some of the tables hadn't been cleared but anyway we found a clean one.... More

This place was a sad and forlorn tip the last time I was here in 2010 or 2011 but it has been VERY substantially refreshed since. Very good lunch and nice friendly ambience about. The staff told me that new management came in in 2013. Ignore all reviews older than 2013 as they are not representative of the current situation... More

The Achill Head Hotel is the best value on the island for a consistently good lunch. Mussels for €5.50, soup & sandwich combo served with side salads for €6, huge, gorgeous Irish breakfast served until 4pm. It's clean, friendly staff! Highly recommend!

You could eat off the floor, the tiles were shining. The selection of food was very good. We had a steak, chicken stirfry, chicken bap, chicken curry... More

Out for a couple on days doing photography of the island and night photography. Blessed with the weather and also blessed that Gillian allowed me to stay the night before they officially opened for the summer. Breakfast was brilliant and enjoyed the evening food. Will go back again thats for sure

I love visiting the Achill Head Hotel,the location is just perfect, the Management and staff are pleasant, welcoming and can do enough for you. The food is fabulous and the home made brown bread and apple pies are mouth-watering. I also love the fresh fish and I suggest you try the Sea food Platter you will certainly enjoy it.
