Great food and a warm welcome

The food was wonderful,incredibly fresh and served with a smile by the friendly staff. We would definitely eat here again if we are fortunate enough to be in the area

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

We were really looking forward to a night in the Chalet based on all the great reviews we read. While the service was very good, the food was disappointing. Starters were limited and mediocre. We then had the fish trio which consisted of over cooked fish and a dipping sauce which was supposed to be a citrus sauce but it... More

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.
