Food consistently good. Staff friendly & accommodating of children, dieting adults etc. Pleadant, practical & cosy feel rather than 'lap of luxury'. Does a children's entertainmant night Wednesdays 7-9 in summer.

In August, this is a busy place where you may need to wait a bit for a menu or service. I ate at the bar twice and was happy for the free wifi as the staff were moving quite quickly and casual chats weren't really possible.

We arrived here late and we taught we would be lucky to get food. We were made feel very welcome and served up healthy sized portions of delicious food. We were extremely satisfied and the service was outstanding especially from the Brona who was very friendly and didnt mind sharing some tales of life on Achill Island.

The food was good and the shuttle service for guests is the best! We used it to come back and it was fantastic. Great idea.

We popped in a few different times over the month for some quick pub grub. Staff were friendly and catered to dietary needs. Food is fine if you're looking for a quick bite to eat...nothing fantastic but then again we did finish it all! More than likely would return for food again and a lovely glass of white wine!

I ate here after a day cycling around beautiful Achill. I had dinner and desert. The food was delisious. Leaving an empty plate says it all. The staff were lovely and friendly. Will definitely be back again
