Have the Scampi in the Chalet

We have been to 10 countries on three continents and easily the best Scampi is served in the Chalet. Light as a feather and deliciously fresh. A must visit everytime we are in Achill.

I was really looking forward to visiting Achill and in particular trying the local seafood, well the Chalet didn't disappoint weather in the food or the stunning views. The decor is a little tired and a bit old fashioned and it could do with an update. The restaurant is more expensive that most of the other restaurants we visited, however... More

We ate there twice during our holiday. The menu was varied but the seafood was hard to resist even for our non fishy palates. We had fish both evenings and our guests had steaks. It was all excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful regarding places to visit. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone near Achill Island.

Average is a Harsh rating... I'd say good but not very good. Our party of 4 adults and 3 kids all enjoyed our meals. The Oysters were excellent, worth the visit alone, a clean and refreshing burst of the sea. The rest of the starters were all enjoyed. The fish main courses were all good, the ingredients were undoubtedly fresh.... More

We were a group of 4. 3 had fish for starters: crab, smoked salmon and mussels - all of which were oohed and aahed over. I had garlic mushrooms which were good but regretted not having the crab when I tasted my daughter's. The smoked salmon also had 3 big juicy prawns on the plate and was snaffled up in... More
