We stayed in Achill House for two nights in August. We received a very warm welcome from the owner Helena. She was very pleasant, nothing was a bother for her and she treated us more like family than guests, which was nice. We also had the pleasure of meeting her adorable little daughter :) We stayed in a triple room...

We enjoyed 3 very comfortable nights at Achill House. The room was spacious, very clean and also quiet at night. The room was cleaned each day with fresh tea and biscuits provided. The landlady was very friendly. The B&B was in a great location for visiting Cork Gaol and the University but was a bit of a walk into the...

Helena is a wonderful host. She couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and leapt to the rescue after a car-hire disaster threatened to cancel our holiday before it had even started. Lovely large clean rooms, a great breakfast and the kind of open hearted welcome that money can't buy.

My niece chose this B&B to stay in as she was a student in Cork this past semester. So, I take no credit for the lovely time we had there. The owner, Helena, is a super-friendly, very helpful person and upholds the great reputation that Irish B&Bs hold. It's about relationship for her. We were there for a number of...

After being turned away from 4 other B&B's along the same road, we tried the Achill House for a place to stay. My wife and I stayed here 1 night. A ring on the doorbell and we were greeted by a younger woman, that didn't really introduce herself (still not sure what her name is). She stated that they had...

This is by far one of the nicest places I have stayed in in a while! You can tell that the place is family run, which is one o the things that I have always loved about Irish b&bs! Being greeted at the front door by the owner and her kid (who is the sweetest most adorable kid ever) and...

Stayed at Achill House for 9 days. A very pleasant place to stay in and an incredibly helpful staff. Excellent value for money to boot. City Centre location is another plus,being close to town and the Main University (UCC). Clean and pleasant too with an excellent internet connection. I would genuinely recommend Achill House to visitors of Cork.

Stayed in Achill House last weekend as I was attending a conference at UCC. I am a solo female traveller, on a student budget. My father gave me his card to book my two-night stay, priced at €110. I paid over the phone. After paying, I received a phonecall about five minutes after, saying that the B&B had been mistakenly...
