“Excellent escape in Achill”
Reviewed April 8, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A beautifully renovated cottage, respectful of its heritage but fully modernised for cosy comfort. Great touches with lovely art and super comfy beds.
Perfectly clean and appointed with all mod cons (and excellent wifi!).
Great hikes and amazing landscape.

“An idyllic retreat!”

We spent a week in The Old Fisherman’s Cottage in mid November, not your typical season to book a stay on an island off the west coast, but my family and I wanted somewhere pretty that we could completely unwind and relax.

We came across David’s cottage online and it ticked all the boxes, offering stunning Atlantic views, home comforts and a fabulous location between two beaches - it lived up to its promise and more!

The cottage is beautifully decorated and you can instantly tell that so much thought and care has been taken in every single decision. It is precisely what you see online and delivers on everything!

David was such a welcoming host and added so many lovely touches to make us feel relaxed and at home.

We had the most amazing time and can not wait to book our return visit! Would highly recommend to anyone considering booking.

“A perfect place to unwind, get cosy, and forget the rat race”
Reviewed October 20, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had an amazing weekend here communing with the stormy ocean and the sheep! The cottage is gorgeous, very comfortable, and charming. The lovely woodburner and complementary bottle of prosecco meant we were warm,cosy, and relaxed despite the arrival of Hurricane Ophelia. Achill Island is stunning - we did a fantastic clifftop walk from beautiful Keem Bay which I highly recommend (details in the little drawer of maps and guides in the kitchen). And the Atlantic Drive from Dooega isn't to be missed either. David was a great host who checked in to make sure we hadn't been blown into the sea, and kept us informed throughout.

Vanessa,

Thank you for your lovely review, it's really appreciated. And I always think it's important to check my guests haven't been blown away lol!

I agree the Atlantic Drive around the south of the island is stunning but I'm ashamed to say I haven't climbed the cliffs up at Keem Bay (but I will soon)!

You and Jono are welcome back any time!

Best wishes,

“Absolute delight!”
Reviewed September 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Beautiful, clean and contemporary with a traditional feel.
On arrival at the cottage, I was taken aback by the views over the Atlantic. The cottage itself is a stunning little place, perfect for a romantic get away. (Can't wait to use the wood burner on a cold night.)
After being there for a few days, I felt my mind clear and I was relaxed and refreshed.
I'm looking forward to rebooking this place as the cottage is a real find.
Wonderful!

Hello Matthew,

Thank you for your lovely review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your time at The Old Fisherman's Cottage.

We're very lucky to have such a special location overlooking the Atlantic, after all these years we never take it for granted...staring out you can get lost in your thoughts.

We're really looking forward to welcoming you back at Christmas...morning walks on windswept beaches and coming back to a roaring fire will be the order of the day!

David

“Amazing place to stay!”
Reviewed September 11, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We were in Ireland staying at 9 different places and this was one of our favorites!
David was such a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. His property clearly reflects the love and pride that has gone into restoring this beautiful home...so tastefully decorated, with comfy beds, and the kitchen/ eating area was so bright and had gorgeous views right out to the ocean. Our kids loved the bunk room, and really did not want to leave!
Just a few second walk away is a beautiful beach, and a five minute drive is Keel beach. Also of note, we visited the small aquarium on the island and it was great, with lots of historical info about the island as well.
Do not hesitate to book this property, you will be so happy you did!

“Beautiful house in a stunning location”
Reviewed August 30, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just back from a wonderful family break at the Old Fisherman's Cottage. With the beach just down the road and sea views from many of the windows, it truly is a beautiful setting. We loved the decor and the style of the house which also managed to be a homely and cosy retreat from the elements. The kids loved it! Very much a taste of the west of Ireland - turf fires and sheep roaming free, all against a dramatic backdrop. Would love to go back!
