We arrived at this unique and tranquil haven after our cycle from Westport to Achill and we were not disappointed! The library room with sea view was stunning and very comfortable. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was better than any hotel, with homemade brown soda bread and apple cake...delicious. A very memorable and enjoyable stay.

Absolutely lovely. We stayed in the Garden Room, off the main house. More like a little apartment than a B & B room (although the breakfasts provided with the cost of the room were delicious!) Definitely a unique experience, not one to miss. We stayed here the last couple of days of our trip, and agreed that it was the... More

We arrived very tired from our cycle across the Greenway and were greeted with a beautiful house and location. Wilhem immediately made us feel at home and went above and beyond by offering to give us a lift to the village. Our room was lovely with a view of the sea. The bed was really comfortable and it was so... More

Was blown away by this idyll in Achill. The welcome couldn't have been warmer and the website does no justice to the room we stayed in. The breakfast was generous beyond expectation and the lift we got to Keel from our host typified the level of commitment to ensuring we had a restful and restorative time after completing the Greenway...

Just spent a weekend here in the library room. The room itself is gorgeous, really pretty and cosy with lots of windows to take in the view. The bed itself is huge and really comfortable. The place is really relaxing and chilled and the breakfast was great, it feels really private and its such a novelty to have such an... More

Unplanned but unforgetable visit to the magical secret garden of Achill Island led to a B&B night at the lybrary room of Bleanaskill Lodge. We had a wonderfull evening with the owners, thank you for that, Doutsje and Willem. We slept like a prince and princess. We woke up early enough to see the sun rising above the sound, reflecting...

My husband & I stayed just one night at Bleanaskill Lodge (& Achill Secret Garden). We're just sorry we didn't book a longer stay. The setting is out of this world, the library room in which we slept had stunning views, our hosts were lovely, the bed was sooo comfortable & breakfast delicious. Strongly recommended & we'll be returning

Parking very limited. Room was external to main house which obviously suits others given their reviews. Room was not to our liking. Shower and bathroom outdated and requires upgrading. Had to wait 20mins for shower to heat up! Won't be rushing back.

I stayed at Doutsje home with my huband for two nights. We loved the house, the "secret" garden, the warm hospitality of our hosts. We felt at home, had a super breakfast and a wonderful view from our room. We could see the sea go away and come back with the tide. The room was large, the bed very comfortable,... More

My husband and I stayed in the library room for two nights and it really was wonderful. We would have stayed forever if we didn't have a flight home booked! Doutsje collected us from Achill Sound as we do not have a car, and was very welcoming and friendly. The room was beautiful, well heated, with a very comfortable bed... More
