This is a great family run establishment. The proprietor was born in this 100 year old house. And yes it is small but it was very clean up to date and charming. They were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. It felt like we were staying with family with out all the drama! 😛

Hi Jeff, thanks so much for your very nice review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. We'll have to work a bit harder on providing a bit of drama, we try to give the real 'home away from home' experience..LOL! We hope to see you again some time. Best wishes, Michael and Roisin More

A great location with wonderful hosts in a laid back west coast area. The views of Clare Island while drinking a cup of coffee after breakfast were amazing. Sitting having late afternoon tea with a sandwich in town and looking at the cliffs and bay while 4 sheep walked down "main street" was another experience

Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Seaview room with excellent view of the mountains and Clare Island. Good walking and sightseeing. Near to Keen bay which is well worth a trip. Bathroom a little small but overall a fantastic place to stay.

Such positive surprise - nice and clean B&B with warm atmosphere and decoration. Great location close to cliffs highest in Europe with two sandy beaches nearby. Very friendly staff / owners and fresh tasty breakfast. Great disassembly point for cyclists and bikers and good starting point for bike trips.

My Husband and I enjoyed 3 sunny days on Achill Island in late May. Teach Cruachan is a comfortable, relaxing B&B with beautiful views and a delicious full Irish breakfast. Roisin and Michael are helpful and easygoing and lovely to chat with about Achill and life in general. There's a friendly Pub with food a short walk from Teach Cruachan... More

Location was everything we could hope for, as was the accommodation. Generous tasty breakfasts. Plenty of advice when requested. Within 100 yards of Gielty's pub/café. Scenery outstanding. The beaches are beautiful and plentiful.

This was our first time at a B&B. Micheal and Roisin made us feel very welcome. They were fantastic hosts, helpful with suggestions on where to go to experience the beauty of Achill Island. Roisin's fabulous home cooked breakfasts fueled us up for the day(s) so we had energy to explore. They even had tips on where to stop on... More

We had an incredible stay at Teach Cruachan. Definitely will be booking there again for a stay on Achill. The location is great and we felt extremely welcome. The owners are very helpful. They even did a bit of emergency sewing for us!!

Hi Leonie, Thanks very much for your kind words - we're so glad you enjoyed your stay and the Irish wedding. It surely helps when the weather is as good as it has been (so far!) this year. If you ever make it over from Canada again give us a shout :) Kind regards, Roisin and Michael More
