“Even better 2nd time round!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I have just returned from visiting Stella Maris over the May bank holiday weekend. I first stayed here back in June 2010 and I can honestly say it is even better second time round! The rooms have recently been updated and renovated and the result is pure luxury! We stayed in Room No.6 which is a mini suite and has amazing views onto Keel beach. This room is a little bit more expensive than the others but it is definately worth the extra money for the extra space and the views! Like other reviewers have mentioned the breakfast at Stella Maris is excellent and with so much to choose from, it is nice to have the option of a fresh healthy breakfast (fruit pancakes, fresh fruit, yogurt, porridge, cheeses, breads, scrambled eggs & salmon) as well as the 'full Irish' option. I have stayed in other B & B's in the Keel area and the only reason why Stella Maris is not No.1 is because they are not open all year round! I am already planning my next trip to Achill and Stella Maris!

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for the Suite (Room No.6)!

We stayed 3 nights, in this b&b. Our Hosts were very friendly, and gave us good ideas on where to visit, eat and general things to do. great location, only a few meters from the beach. Lovely 4 poster bed, with fantastic sea-view!! Loved the fresh fruit at breakfast, also Mary's pancakes are divine :)
Highly recommend this for your stay.

The lovely, delicious and unforgettable pancake with honey and fresh fruit (extra-sweet strawberries, bananas, kiwis and grapes) is worth the trip in itself! Add a fantastic location overlooking Keel beach in the heart of unspoilt and stunning Achill Island and the kind welcome we had at Stella Maris and here you have our absolutely positive experience at this B&B!!! If you like opulence and baroque-style you will love the surprising richness of decor in the living room (golden frames and cloths, marble columns, big golden chairs, ornaments...), if you are on the essential style, don't care and go forward to your room: you'll find a spacious and comfortable one offering you a splendid view of Minaun Cliffs!!!

We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. There was room for us to store our bikes and the guest house is right at the end of the beach so there was plenty for us to do. The rooms are gorgeous and the breakfast is just fabulous!

Not only was this B&B beautifully kept but it's location on Keel Beach was wonderful. It was also a convenient walk to a good restaurant and the local Pub. The price was great too. We stayed at many places for the same rate but none even came close to this.

Parents stayed here. Food was fab and as much as they wanted. Staff were friendly and helpful. Some might like the "look" of the main room other might night but it is different. ;) The main bedrooms were nice with some great views.
