Apart from a somewhat minor issue which the very charming French man sorted out with minimal fuss, this stay was perfect. It could be that Achill is just beautiful and this added to its charm, but I think it can rightly claim itself as being magical. All the rooms are in the style of the places where the owner has...

This is a hideaway from generic mass tourism at the foot of a mountain on an island on the west coast of Ireland. I have read some negative reviews and can only conclude that those who wrote them (entitled to their opinion of course) would be better off staying in the fluffy world of perceieved comforts where towels match curtains...

We were recommended to go here, and not sorry we did! Lovely atmosphere inside and bundles of kids books/toys dotted around to keep our 4year old happy while we waited for food. Pizza and pasta dishes were delicious and service was quick. Would eat hear again next time we visit achill.

On first impressions we were a little sceptical but as soon as we walked in the door and were met by François our Pure Magic trip began. A beautiful setting with lake views and mountain views and wandering sheep. The bedroom was clean and spacious with plenty of hot water. Beds were lovely and comfy too. We had lunch on... More

My daughter and I stayed here and we both loved it. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. Definitely an alternative b&b experience. The restaurant there is great and they make a mean pizza. During a trip to Achill that was a bit of a washout with the weather, this was a definite... More

We chose Pure Magic Achill as the venue for the second day of our wedding, with over 60 people during the day, and a large number staying overnight (mix of singles, couples & families). The place was perfect and everyone who stayed had a great time with lots of positive feedback. The day turned out really well. The cosy pub... More

We stayed 3 nights with our 10 year old daughter in a family room. It was clean, had a gorgeous view and came complete with sheep alarm clocks. Breakfast was plentiful. We ate dinner there every night because after all these years we realized, this is the only restaurant on the island we like. We can't say enough about the... More

This is a must visit, whatever the trip. If you are passing by you can grab a coffee or pizza, if you want a romantic meal or a family friendly restaurant it is perfect for that too or if you want a proper break away there are few places where that offer what pure magic offers. The people are amazing,... More

I just wanted to say a belated thank you to Bruno at Pure Magic in Achill for creating the most incredible St. Honoré cake for my husband’s birthday in April. I was looking for something simple and tasty and what we got was outstanding. He made this cake, named after the French patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs, so... More

The best food we had on Achill island....that's what the kids thought!!! Lovely seafood chowder, amazing pizza and the brownies were delicious. Definitely going back. Remember to book to avoid disappointment. Also do take away pizza.
