“A gem of a B & B”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Just spent a weekend here in the library room. The room itself is gorgeous, really pretty and cosy with lots of windows to take in the view. The bed itself is huge and really comfortable. The place is really relaxing and chilled and the breakfast was great, it feels really private and its such a novelty to have such an amazing unspoiled view from your bed.
The stormy weather just added to the ambience!
We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The library room is fab and very romantic

Unplanned but unforgetable visit to the magical secret garden of Achill Island led to a B&B night at the lybrary room of Bleanaskill Lodge. We had a wonderfull evening with the owners, thank you for that, Doutsje and Willem. We slept like a prince and princess. We woke up early enough to see the sun rising above the sound, reflecting the landscape as in a mirror. A little robin and some crows were the only witnesses of all that beauty. For breakfast you should ask for an Irish traditional one, you will not regret, unless you can't eat in the morning! ;-)

Room Tip: If you want to stay here, you 'll have to book long enough in advance, they have only two rooms...

My husband & I stayed just one night at Bleanaskill Lodge (& Achill Secret Garden). We're just sorry we didn't book a longer stay. The setting is out of this world, the library room in which we slept had stunning views, our hosts were lovely, the bed was sooo comfortable & breakfast delicious. Strongly recommended & we'll be returning

Parking very limited. Room was external to main house which obviously suits others given their reviews. Room was not to our liking. Shower and bathroom outdated and requires upgrading. Had to wait 20mins for shower to heat up!
Won't be rushing back.

Room Tip: To be honest we cancelled our stay so can't comment on sleep!

I stayed at Doutsje home with my huband for two nights. We loved the house, the "secret" garden, the warm hospitality of our hosts. We felt at home, had a super breakfast and a wonderful view from our room. We could see the sea go away and come back with the tide. The room was large, the bed very comfortable, full of books and everithing was simply perfect. I will tell my friends about Bleanaskill

My husband and I stayed in the library room for two nights and it really was wonderful. We would have stayed forever if we didn't have a flight home booked!

Doutsje collected us from Achill Sound as we do not have a car, and was very welcoming and friendly. The room was beautiful, well heated, with a very comfortable bed and beautiful views. The breakfast was delicious, with home made breads, and there was always chocolate and tea in the room with fresh milk in a beautiful tea set with a silver tray. It's those kind of details that make this B&B not just good, but excellent! The gardens are full of daffodils at the moment and the artwork everywhere is very inspiring.

We opted to join the family meal, and Doutsje asked if we wanted to collect mussels. She drove us down the coast and we had lots of fun mussel collecting then she cooked them up in a delicious sauce with heavenly side-dishes and a tasty cake for dessert.

This place is very special. We will certainly be coming back!
