The starter were surprisingly filling and extremely tasty, again went with... More

I visited this restaurant yesterday evening while on a short stay on Achill Island with my husband. I found the staff very friendly and efficient. We had the steak and the seafood mix with salad. They were both excellent and the Bread and Butter pudding was the best I've ever had. You really need to book here, as it's a... More

Superb seafood, with some luck even caught by the owners' own boat. We had a delicious chowder as a starter and salmon as our main course. The lot sprinkled with a nice Chardonnay. Pity the restaurant was fully booked on the second night of our stay.

The food was amazing. We had a group of 14, ranging from 2 years old to 74 years old, and everyone found something they liked. Our meals included hake, lobster, shrimp, fish and chips, monkfish, chicken, chowder, crab claws, etc. Every plate was cleaned and every dish was thorougly enjoyed. The owners are locals and take pride in their community,... More

On a search for some good seafood we found this gem after a day at Keem beach. The menu was full of choices that all sounded amazing. A great wine selection as well. The restaurant itself was lovely inside and provided an amazing ambiance for a great night out. Dress was casual but the experience was top of the line!

We started our 2 week trip to Ireland at Achill Island - a beautiful place. Upon recommendation of B and B owner (Teach C.) we visited the Chalet for dinner, and returned the next night. Two of the best seafood dinners we have had in our travels - (we spend a considerable amount of time on the coast of Maine).... More
