We went there for a weekend getaway and we really enjoyed our stay. We received a warm welcome from the lady who owns the place who kindly directed us to our rooms and told us about the surrounding areas. The place was perfectly located close to the beach and the rooms were absolutely clean and very cosy. However, the lovely... More

If you're visiting Achill, be sure to stay at Joyce's. The location is first class and the welcome from staff (especially Anne) makes you feel at home from the off. My group arrived after midnight for the Achill Half Marathon and Anne stayed up to welcome us even though she had to be up for early breakfast a few hours... More

My mother and I stayed at Joyce's Guesthouse for three nights in May, and only wished our plans had allowed us to stay longer! Our twin room with a sea view was comfortable and attractive; it was especially good to have lovely woollen blankets on the beds, along with a couple of extra cozy throws for a little warmth while...

We had a great time in this b&b. Anne is a wonderful hostess, who told us lots about the area. The room was cosy and clean, had a comfortable bed, and has a bathroom en suite. We could make use of the lounge with fireplace, which actually felt like home, and tea and biscuits were plenty. Breakfast was simpy amazing,... More

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
