We were staying close to this hotel and had two evening meals there, the first night we had the fish chips and mushy peas, really fresh fish that broke into large flakes, done in light beer batter, together with chips and mushy peas it's the reason I had the same two nights later but my wife had the baked hake, this must be one of the best hotels in Ireland, very pleasant staff with friendly service, no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to anyone.

Had the Atlantic Seefood Platter for dinner. Don't order it. Dry mussels, prawns from a jar, and the rest quite tasteless.

For a long time I have resigned myself to the influence that seasonal tourism has on restaurants, hotels and B&Bs. The economic effect of a short tourist season is that businesses can not invest as much in standards. So I have reviewed many places with that constraint in mind.
So, when I had dinner in Achill Sound Hotel, the high quality knocked my socks off. This is a hotel that charges real prices on its solid menu.
It was no surprise to see many Irish visitors come here to holiday. With this fantastic value on this jewel of an island, I will be encouraging friends and family to make the journey.
Achill Sound Hotel is a revelation.
Bravo to the Connaughton family for achieving this amazing standard at such a reasonable price. Businesses like this give Irish tourism a good name.

This is a great place to eat and drink. The food was great. The service from the staff was second to none. We had lunch and then dinner here and on both occasions the food and service was impeccable. The place is clean and tidy and the staff are brilliant. Go here for good food, good drink and a great service.

Had excellent smoked salmon and prawns salad for dinner in the restaurant. The personal service and advice given in a cosy atmosphere combined with the fast service to make this a great place to eat.
