We've been to Ireland many times, enjoying the amazing natural sceneries, sheep (!), fuschia hedges, and windy days from many venues. But Achill is special: quiet, uncommercial, head-clearing. The Old Beach Cottage is unique: cozy, elegant, comfortable, and a relaxing very private cottage from which to enjoy the Irish landscape and in which to settle and rest. We were there during the tail end of an Atlantic hurricane (Helene), and the first named storm of the season (Storm Ali) -- both storms produced gale force winds and rain. We always go to Ireland with the expectation of changeable weather and the possibility of storms, but our week on Achill was a bonanza of interesting weather. The wood/peat stove and the noisy winds made for an A+ visit. The location is superb -- the ocean and a great beach for walking is across the road. Note that the owners make reserving easy -- they are very responsive to any needs.We intend to return next year.
The old beach cottage is heaven on earth! We had a 3 night stay in August and fell in love the second we arrived! Surpasses any 5 star hotel in Ireland. The old beach cottage is a dream and it's location is incredible. The cottage, and the location leave you breathless!
It really was an experience never to forget.
The cottage has everything you need, it's warm, and clean and the decor is to the highest standard.
Already planning when to return next year!
A most Beautiful Cottage, surpassed all our expectations; Online pictures do not do it full justice....tastefully decorated to keep its character and so clean & spacious. Host made us feel so important throughout booking and arrival to be met and welcomed with a lovely bottle of Processo chilling in the fridge added a touch of class to experience. We are family of 2 adults & 2 kids; so very family friendly;kids loved all the details ,books, guitar plus cards & board games all went down a treat;looking out at free roaming sheep in the morning and walking the beach across the road from front door. Holiday of fantastic memories.
Achill Island is wonderful and the cottage is in a great location! Just a few steps from the cottage, across a small road and a grass area, and you’ve reached the beautiful beach. The location is also great as a base for days out to explore Achill’s amazing landscape. The cottage has everything you need and is clean and comfortable. The owner and housekeeper are friendly and helpful, with great communication both during the booking process and our stay.
We booked the Old Beach Cottage for a week in June and we are so glad we did. This place is truly amazing. The cottage is beautifully decorated and presented. Photos just don't do it justice. This was our first trip to Achill and certainly won't be our last. Achill has the most stunningly beautiful coast line and beaches you will ever see. We look forward to staying in this little gem again soon
We were blessed with amazing weather and a most fantastic time here - right across the road from the unspoilt Dugort beach, the Atlantic ocean, local entertainment at The Strand Hotel. The cottage itself is beautiful - tastefully modernised whilst retaining its original features and all the memories of times gone by. Excellent communication from the hosts and memories that we'll never forget. Thank you most sincerely - we'll definitely be coming back again some day!
