Last summer we had the pleasure of staying at the Strand Hotel with our three children. It was such a relaxing holiday! There is a lovely, laid back, west of Ireland feel to the place. Children are happy playing on the beach and coming in for their tea (and no one complained when sand was everywhere!). Location wise, the Strand... More

We found this restaurant on a trip round Achill Island's Atlantic Drive. Signposted on the Drive down another road to Dugort Beach. The location is beautiful and a meal at the hotel can be followed by a walk on the beautiful sandy beach just a few metres in front. We were warmly greeted and brought a bottle of water while...

Located on Silver Strand in Dugort this may not be the most modern hotel, but the welcome we received was second to none! The room was clean and airy, and the service was excellent. Breakfast included cereals and a choice of 'full Irish' or the likes of scrambled eggs. We stayed Friday night and Saturday nights and there was live... More

Was here over the weekend and had a great time. We got lucky with the weather which made it even better here. Sitting at the foot of Slieve Mor right on the beach it's hard to find a better setting. Had a few drinks and food in the bar after conquering the mountain and would recommend the chowder. Then down... More

Stayed for one night in March at short notice. The hotel was quiet as it was off-season. The room was fine and it was obvious there's some renovations being done/planned. The cooked breakfast was world-class. Will stay there again if I'm back later in the summer.

We happened upon the Strand one evening and were immediately made to feel at home. Victor became our guide for the evening, happily engaging us in conversation, sharing stories about Achill and telling us about upcoming events and also making us aware that we had arrived in time for the Heinrich Boll Memorial Weekend. We had no idea who Mr... More
