A friend & I had a bite to eat here after she registered for the Achill Roar adventure race. It was very busy that evening. She ordered the vegetable soup & I ordered the seafood chowder. My friend made no complaints about her soup. My chowder was severely lacking fishy bits. I was very disappointed as personally I think you... More

Whether for a personal treat or bringing a group out, Gieltys is the business. The new menu has something for everyone and I particularly enjoy the Vol au Vents or Clew Bay Burger, depending on which mood takes me. Strongly recommend.

The bar man in Gieltys was friendly, chatty and welcoming. The food was delicious, 8oz burger very good. We sat in the bar and our window seat had a great view of the ocean on a wild windy day. Gieltys seemed to enjoy a nice flow of tourists during the hour or so we spent there. Next time we'll visit... More

A friend and myself visit here on the 14th of August for a late lunch while I was showing here around the island. My family have been coming to Achill for years and Gielty's was a regular stop after a day at the beach. However, to say that I am embarrassed and shocked is to say the least. We sat... More

Me and my family dropped in at this marvellous place after coming from a beach. It was quite crowed but comfy and warm. With a variety of interesting choices such as the pasta of the day in which my case was the heavenly homemade lasagne. Every bite was heaven at sight! Also a main option of beverages such as coffee's... More

Popped in for a coffee with the family and was delighted with the range of food and drinks on offer. The staff were friendly and helpfull. The cakes are too die for and the Lasagna looked incredible.

Went twice over a weekend and was very disappointed, was looking forward to Gieltys as the reviews were so good. But the service on our first visit was very poor, slow and the staff seemed uninterested. Food was only ok, nothing exceptional and expensive. The second visit was a shambles, went for a quiet pint on my own. Stood at... More
