Anvil House B&B

Reviewed April 7, 2013

We decided to go back to Achill Island over Easter and there were never any doubt where we wanted to stay! Fortunately Katherine and Ciaron had a room for us this time too. I know we have reviewed it before but it is worth mentioning again because this must be one of the best B&B’s in Ireland. And if you are thinking of walking or biking around the island or along the Great Western Greenway it is perfect. Great rooms everything is clean, fresh and Katherine’s breakfasts are amazing :o)

Having visited Achill for the first time to attend a funeral was delighted to be recommended Anvil House. Friendly welcome, shown to spotless rooms with a single and double in each. Wonderful en suite and under floor heating. Breakfast has to be a 10 out of 10 too. You seriously would not get better at a 5 star hotel. I asked Catherine how long they had been open as everything looks so new and to be told over 10 years was to say the least a shock, well Catherine is obviously doing something right. 10 OUT OF 10.

We (2 couples) stayed here in April and found it great. We cycled from Westport and were knackered when we got there. Lovely clean room with good bathroom and good facilities. Lovely large breakfast the next day set us up for the cycle back to Westport. Town itself was very quiet in April and it was not easy to get a bite to eat but that's nothing to do with with B&B and we were trying to eat quite late, circa 9pm.

what can I say, only a five star service. The best accommodation on achill island. The breakfast is to die for. worth staying!! Catherine and Ciaran very nice people..plus the accommodation very comfortable, clean, very spacious room for the children. It was reasonably priced.Plus there's not much noise in the B&b at nite time either which means you get a good nights sleep. fantastic!!
