We had heard about Ferndale from a friend during our trip to Ireland and called a few days before arriving in Achill to reserve a table. We were absolutely delighted with the experience and it is an experience not just a simple matter of an evening meal. Jon and his staff have created something truly unique. The choice of dishes on the menu, mixing the straightforward with the very exotic was impressive but not as impressive as the flavours that blew us away. We were so impressed we asked to come back the following night and had another very memorable evening with outstanding food, wine & service. One word of warning, if you are looking for traditional Irish cuisine, this is not for you. A must for all lovers of fine dining. Keep up the great work Jon, we'll be certainly back to visit you next time in Ireland!

We were delighted to spend an evening at Ferndale - definitely the best experience in Achill. The hosts were extremely friendly and generous. Lots of little extra touches that were so appreciated. A few of the dishes were expensive but when you add in the extra bits and pieces a night very enjoyable indeed! Would definitely recommend

There are a few words to describe my experience in ferndale amazing, romantic, relaxing, exciting and delicious. we stayed in their themed rooms and omg it was just sooo relaxing and worth every penny. we will definately be back and for 2 nights the next time. Well what can i say about the food, to start oh my god i died and went to food heaven no seriously, the thoughts and love that the team in ferndale put into their food is something out of this world and that is an understatement. over all the food was amazing and definately the best meal we have ever eaten and the service was just excellent and unforgettable thanks to John and his team. if you like to be adventurous with your food or not Ferndale is a great experience to be had.
