“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

This is a good place to go for a coffee as there is a good view of Keel beach. There is a gift shop on site also where you can pick up some nice crockery, books and clothing also. Staff are v nice and there is good coffee and food, however i would agree that it is a little bit pricey for the times that are in it.

“Lovely People, Decent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

A lovely place in the centre of Keel. I definitely recommend a stop here for a lunch and a coffee. It might be slightly pricey but atleast you know what you are getting.

“A definite must for lunch on Achill!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

What a fantastic spot for lunch. All of the food is homemade! I had an amazing butternut squash soup, and it was probably the best butternut squash soup I've ever had! Their desserts looked fantastic as well! We sat at a cute table by the window with great views of the sea. There was also a very nice shop as well with cute clothes, pottery and handmade soaps. Excellent spot for lunch!

“Even better than Avoca!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is such a great coffee shop/ bistro/ store- great food and even flat whites! I really hope it stays.

Keel is a fab surfing / beach resort and Achill just the best place I've ever been (family connections may make me slightly bias!) but it really does need better restaurants- the Beehive really sets the standard.

“Nice place for a coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

The beehive is great if you need to rest and relax while visiting Achill. I don't think the prices are way over the top but just a little above the norm. I love to pop in get a coffee sit outside and just enjoy the views that are well worth paying a little extra for.
