The food at the Valley House Bar & Restaurant is amazing. Choose any dish in the menu and you won't regret it! The chef is truly talented. So is the owner with his Guinness pouring skills (probably the best Guinness you get in Ireland). Also:...More

I can't really describe with words how nice it was to eat in that place, but I will try anyway. The first time we went I had the special chicken-and-avocado burger which was truly amazing, tasting so soft with the chicken which had marinated all...More

Valley House is off the beaten track in Achill. It is not down on the "main drag" in Keel, but tucked away in the quieter northeast corner beyond Doogort. We (a family group of 5, 3 "pescetarians") were staying 3 nights at the associated Hostel...More

Usually as a vegetarian you're left stuck with very boring unimaginative options but this place was such a great surprise. Tucked away with cosy indoor seating and lovely courtyard outdoor seating. Food was excellent.. Really well thought-out menu catering for everyone. Highly highly recommend.

Had a beautiful, tasty meal here last night with lovely server followed by a super creamy pint in the bar. The idea of a "good room" for adults only is music to my ears! Only reason I scored 4/5 was wine list was a bit...More
