Achill Island felt a bit dead when when the Achill Head Hotel was closed in the last couple of years on our summer holidays but we were pleasantly surprised to find it opened this July. The bar is a fantastic space and the new owners are so warm and welcoming. Our family is made up of a 4, 12, 18...

We visited the Achill Head hotel for a late lunch I think we were there around 3.30pm. We decided to avail of their bar food menu. It wasn't really busy, there were some tables in use but there were others that were free. I noticed that some of the tables hadn't been cleared but anyway we found a clean one....

This place was a sad and forlorn tip the last time I was here in 2010 or 2011 but it has been VERY substantially refreshed since. Very good lunch and nice friendly ambience about. The staff told me that new management came in in 2013. Ignore all reviews older than 2013 as they are not representative of the current situation...

The Achill Head Hotel is the best value on the island for a consistently good lunch. Mussels for €5.50, soup & sandwich combo served with side salads for €6, huge, gorgeous Irish breakfast served until 4pm. It's clean, friendly staff! Highly recommend!

You could eat off the floor, the tiles were shining. The selection of food was very good. We had a steak, chicken stirfry, chicken bap, chicken curry...
