We had an opportunity to take a last minute break on Achill Island and booked The Old Fishermans Cottage to enjoy the independence of a home away from home.
This is the perfect place to do so. The house has been fully but sensitively modernised and it is beautifully decorated with great attention to detail.
Booking was easy and we had plenty of information about how to get here, how to work everything and tips on how to enjoy the island etc,
We would definitely return here if we were to visit Achill again.
It was such a pleasure to stay in The Old Fishermans Cottage, the house was very comfortable, interior design spot on, and really great art and sculptures throughout - a real feel of luxury, a home away from home. As an avid art lover, I thought I had gone to heaven!! The Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful blue-flag Doogort Beach were our next door neighbours - the views from the house were outstanding. We absolutely loved it!
The cottage has been been renovated to a really high standard and we received a warm welcome. The location is stunning and we will definitely look to return in the future
This is a fantastic house with a real sense of peace and connection with the landscape. We really enjoyed the bank holiday weekend in Achill and were blessed with good weather. We have been to Achill many times and this house is a great addition to the area. It is a short stroll to a fabulous beach and it is in a quiet area with just a short drive to the busier parts of the island. David was very easy to communicate with and a bottle of prosecco in the fridge was much appreciated. I hope to return many times.
An absolute priveledge to have stayed in this cottage. Thank you David for allowing guests to be able to do so. Tastefully decorated, not cluttered, quality contents, towels, bedlinen, cushions and furnishings. Spotlesly clean and with the most amazing views out the kitchen window of the ocean, sunrises and sunsets and Slievemore mountain, not to mention the view from upstairs bathroom when showering. Sheep and cattle grazing nearby, birdsong, sound of the waves and a sleepy little village. The cosiest fire ever. Central heating as well. The complimentary prosecco was enjoyed down on the bench seat overlooking the sea....sheer bliss.Great location for Atlantic Drive, Keem and Keel beach, restaurants, cafes, grocercy store and butcher. It is the kind of cottage you fall in love with the minute you walk in and wished you owned it yourself, a sense of a warm hug. Simply stunning and David’s wonderful, friendly communication before and during our stay was brilliant. I felt so sad to leave. 10 star rating. (The sister cottage down the road “The Beach Cottage” looks lovely too).
We found this cottage just by accident and booked it with David the owner directly.
As soon we arrived we were impressed by the location, the stylish interior and the cleanliness of the cottage. My sister was speechless and we could not believe how lucky we were, finding this hidden gem. The cottage has a wonderful view to the sea and we were entertained throughout the day by the sheep who were grazing in front of the cottage. The place is fully equipped with everything you can think off, Wi-Fi is working in every room and even the fireplace can be lit on a cold night.
We loved the Old Fisherman Cottage and can't wait to come back.
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.
