Stopped here by chance while doing a driving tour of Achill Island. Food was gorgeous and very reasonably priced. Waitress was very friendly and recommended places to see we hadn't been to yet. Highly recommended.

From burgers to curries and soups, the food is fresh and cooked to order. Staff is friendly. Interior is warm and comfortable. Owned by several generations of the same family, Gielty's is definitely worth a stop for food or a... More

A very welcoming pub. Friendly staff, good food and great value. We stopped off for a bite of lunch with out two children. We were all made very welcome and all 4 plates were cleared. The good hearty portions were enjoyed by all of us. The owner spent time talking with all his customers while he worked. A lovely relaxed... More
