Peter, the proprietor of this hotel, is a friendly, hospitable host. The food is good and the portions generous and very well priced. Well worth a visit if you are travelling to Achill.

Fab place. Room was small but fine for us as it was a late booking of one night as we travelled around. Staff were great in the hotel and bar. Food was lovely. Would be happy to go back.

The Barman/owner was such a highlight, what a lovely welcoming man. Food was simple but super tasty, fresh and good for value. Perfect stop for a bite and interesting local conversation. Champ the springer spaniel was another delightful highlight!
