A beautiful pub and coffee shop offering excellent food at good value. The warm open fire is very welcoming and the food matches. The portions are big and hearty and will provide you with a well deserved stop off on your way through Achill. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food is excellent.

Hospitality, Food and Surrounds Charming and Excellent! The owners Michael and Paul were very accommodating and personable. Lovely banter and chatter, and the food was awesome! Staff were very friendly and welcoming ~ You leave there with a feeling (to quote my late Da) "It's soo Nice to know Nice People!" x
