“Very relaxing stay-Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

We stayed here for a couple of nights in the family room, which had a double bed and a single bed in- it was very comfortable indeed and had a lovely en-suite. We highly recommend this B + B, as we were made very welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We had use of a kitchen and lounge area which was very nice of the hosts. This B+B is ideally placed for Keel and touring the beautiful Island.

Margret and her husband are excellent hosts. The breakfast is very delicately. The rooms are tidy and comfortable. The B&B is situated close to the sea. The beach, the pub and a little supermarket are only a little walk away. And last but not least, to mention Daisy, the best dog in town :-). This wasn´t our first visit and we´ll surely come back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2008

Having an extra day in the west of Ireland, we decided on a whim to visit Achill Island in early February. We arrived at Fuchsia Lodge late in the afternoon. Despite our unannounced arrival in the off season the proprietress, Margaret Lavelle, welcomed us to her home and B&B with a pot of hot tea and cookies.

We were given an antique filled upstairs-room with a view of the harbor and beach in Keel. The room appeared to be recently remodeled and included a modern, private bathroom. No tub, but the shower was a real luxury with steamy hot water and strong water pressure. The towels were large and fluffy and warm. The house was spotless, quiet and very comfortable.

Breakfast in the morning was one of the best we had in Ireland. A basket of fresh fruit garnished our table in the morning. A hearty traditional Irish breakfast was made to order and delicious.

Margaret is very knowledgeable about Achill and directed us to a few sites and walks on the island. She was also able to tell us which pubs would be open mid-week and off-season, which was invaluable since there aren’t many restaurants on the far end of the island and most were closed.

When it was time to leave in the morning, Margaret and her very well-behaved dog walked us out to our car and sent us on our way. Simply a delightful stay.

One note – there is no ATM on the island. Make sure you get cash just as you cross the bridge on to the island.

  • Liked — The welcome and wonderful view from our room
  • Disliked — The room was a little small - but adequate
