Just stayed one night but wished we had time to stay longer. Anne was warm and helpful, the whole place is immaculate and the view from our bedroom window over the bay to the hills beyond was just perfect. And then we had breakfast - home made jams and preserves to die for. Eric and Lynne could not recommend more... More

We had a simply fantastic stay last week on Achill Island at this beautiful guesthouse. The owner Anne was simply delightful and couldn't have made us more welcome. Of particular note, the guesthouse was just immaculate - crisp laundered linen on the tables, soft fluffy towels, sumptuous soft duvets and pillows, artisan teas and a cosy fire. We travelled with...

Great location a short stroll from Keem Strand, awesome breakfast, and good clean accommodation. Have stayed before and will do so again. Good value for a sole traveller, made very welcome by the host Anne who is wonderful. Kieran C. Stayed 2 nights September 2014. Should have stayed longer!

When we arrived we received a warm welcome and were shown to our beautiful room. The owner, Anne, is friendly and welcoming. The room had a spacious bathroom & is spotless, beautifully decorated and with a fantastic view down to Keel beach. The breakfasts were great with a large selection of delicious fresh foods, everything from the traditional Irish grill... More

Stayed at Joyce's Marian Villa for 3 nights in August. This guesthouse is a classic example of an old traditional family home that has been modernized. Achill island is lovely and Joyce's is well situated for beach access and exploring the island. The "Full Irish Breakfast" was a true feast. Would highly recommend staying there.

Joyce's Marian Villa was an awesome place to stay. The room was absolutely spotless and was beautifully furnished. We stayed here one night and spent our time playing Scrabble beside the turf fire, enjoying the complimentary tea and biscuits. The place had such a lovely and relaxing atmosphere. The owner was so friendly and the breakfast was delicious. This was... More

We stayed here for a night in July 2014. We were very impressed with how the room was decorated - simple, yet very tasteful and relaxing. The views from our window were magnificent. The guesthouse is at the top of a picture perfect laneway which will bring you down to one end of the beach (beach is several kilometres long... More

Just back from an overnight in this Guesthouse, have to agree with the other reviews, the place was outstanding, quality all over from start to finish. Ann was a wonderful host and the room if a little bit on the small side had everything you could want including a really comfy bed. Breakfast was top notch and whatever you want... More
