We recently had lunch at The Beehive restaurant in Keel, Achill Island and it was extremely good. The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The only problem was that it closes early which was disappointing as it was the only place open in Keel in March. Nothing opens before Easter apparently which is a pity.

Very good customer service and very clean place. Great cuppa coffee. One of those places you want to spend an hour or more over a cup of coffee or tea.

We stopped here for a coffee. It's a really nice craft shop with a good range of stock. The cakes are superb. The staff are extremely friendly and the views from the terrace outside are super. Worth a stop and support the local economy 😉

When is was on Achill Island I decided to visit The Beehive and it was very busy. Especially in the summer it is very busy so it is hard to find a table. The food tasted lovely however it is extremely expensive which is a huge put off for me as I am poor and not earning £100,000 a week.

We always drop in to the Beehive when down at Keel beach. The pastries and cakes there are always spot on. They also do a more substantial lunch menu which we have had on occasion, which is more on the salads and Paninis side than the meat n two veg that I would err towards. Some really nice craft goods... More

A warm and friendly greeting in a beautiful cafe surrounded by tempting things to browse and buy - my idea of heaven. This was topped off by a slice of excellent orange and almond cake and really good coffee. The owner was bright, cheerful and happy to share her knowledge of local happenings. Service was perfect. Highly recommend that all... More

Achill Island is about as far west you can get in Co. Mayo without getting your feet wet and it was cold fresh morning when we all arrived there and just wanted to have a lovely hot coffee and fresh scones before we started to explore the Island and we found this in The Beehive, in Keel on Achill Island....

Stopped for a cuppa but found so much more. Great craft shop/cafe we had scones and crumble tea coffee and hot chocolate all tasted great with a lovely outlook over the water. Would recommend during visit to Achill Island.

I had a lovely baileys... More
