“Amazing food to match the amzing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

This really is a great experience, the food is a little bit away from the norm but is amazing.
The view alone is worth a trip to this restaurant.
Laid back atmosphere where you can enjoy the food drink and the view on this amazing island.

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Ate here on a Thursday night with my wife. We had a wonderful experience as well as a splendid meal. The food was top quality, interesting, very varied with lots of choice.
Initially, it might seem expensive but add in the complimentary drinks and courses (we got 2 - a beautiful mackeral pate with home made scones and also a breast of quail) and the fact that you are left in peace and not rushed then it is great value for money as well as a fantastic experience.

Jon, the host, was very chatty without being obtrusive. We loved it so much we are going back to stay there for 2 nights with 2 more dinners included next month!!

Also, how could I forget - the view is amazing and you will go a long way to get one as good.

“Arabian night's in Ireland..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Everybodies entitled to an opinion but we couldnt find any fault with ferndale guesthouse,from the comfort,food and Jon's magnificent hospitality and quirky sense of humour! One feels adventurous staying here and its certainly first class compared to other places we've stayed in. All the bedrooms are themed and we stayed in the Arabian room which had the comfiest bed we had ever slept in! Jon's cuisine was very interesting and the fusion of spices used were very creative,I had crocodile,kangaroo,ostrich and bison steaks which i enjoyed immensely as it was new to me! My partner 'Melanie' enjoyed the wild boar and swedish pasta very much!! there was also an extensive range of wines to choose from which would cater for any taste bud and jon's expert knowledge to help you choose was very helpful..It was a nice friendly family run atmosphere and we would like to thank Jon,Heidi and alex not forgetting 'Mowgli and Balou' for a very pleasurable stay on Achill island... ....We will be back!!! Mick + Mel.
