Really nice stop for family’s and water sport enthusiasts. Known in area for its great fresh pizza and chowder. Take away is possible if you are camping or if all tables are booked out.

Book in advance if planning to go, it can be very busy.

It’s approx 2.5k from keel camp site, if one wants to cycle ( more uphill on way to restaurant), easy downhill ride on way back to keel.

Nice playground for kids outside to entertain while waiting for pizza or for early finishers!

Visited Pure Magic twice over the Summer. Once in early June. Was quiet. Food was ok. Lady who seemed to be running the restaurant was quite unfriendly and very mean to a young waitress that she seemed to be training in. Visited again in August. Thought I'd give the place a second chance. Extremely disappointed. Extremely unfriendly front of house(same lady). Very rude. She looked at us in astonishment and said 'where do ye think ye're going, not booking, on the busiest week of the year?'. Was a Wednesday the week after the bank holiday. They couldn't take us but when we asked if we could get a take away pizza and eat it on the picnic tables in the garden she said 'no, not usually'. Going to Achill over 30 years with loads of family there too. Very disappointed. Thankfully there's a nice few more restaurants on the island to go to.

Thank you for your opinion, sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. Sorry if you took comments personal as it was meant to be a bit of humor. As for "TAKE AWAY" usually there would be no problem but as it was very busy and other guests were waiting for there table to be ready there were no benches free.

Pizzas seem to be the speciality but there are other choices on the menu. The food was good the service seemed a it slow but it was busy. Price wise its not as competitive as some other places on the island for similar food - but overall an enjoyable experience.

This is such a cosy place with lots of European inspiration. Pizza is great as is the Irish craft beer.
The staff are always charming and though sometimes they may seem a little inexperienced but it's in a really good way. They care about the place.and the experiences of the customer.
Charming and cosy

I’ve been to Pure Magic a few times now and the food is always excellent. There’s a lovely laid back vibe to the place with it’s “surfer dude” background. Great for pizzas and burgers etc but be warned, if you are in a hurry this is not the place to come unless it’s off season. The wait, however, is worth it. Relax, have a beer and chill dude!
