“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

My wife and I had the most wonderful three night stay at the Stella Maris last month. The levels of comfort, cleanliness, quality and friendly hospitality were just amazing. Mary and Greg really were the perfect hosts. They were so helpful and friendly. We had a suite with the most comfortable four poster bed and loads of space, not to mention the breathtaking views from the large windows. Breakfast at the Stella Maris was a delightful experience and there are a number of choices for other meals, all within a short walk of the Stella Maris. Keel is the perfect location on Achill Island and the island itself is one of the most relaxing and scenic places I have been to. There is something really great about being on an island, yet having a land bridge to the mainland, meaning that it is easy to explore some of County Mayo's other attractions. Having said that, with Achill being so beautiful, we did not want to stray too far away. We hope to be back to the Stella Maris before too long.

Room Tip: I would imagine that all the rooms are just great, but we would want to go for a suite again next ti...

Stella Maris is the very best B&B I have ever stayed at. The rooms were clean, spacious and luxurious. The bed was very comfortable and the view looking out to Keel beach was breathtaking. Breakfast was delicious with several options and very tasty--especially Mary’s homemade bread. Mary and Greg were very friendly and made us feel at home. They were always asking if we were fine and if there was anything else we wanted/needed. I look forward to another visit to Achill and I will be sure to stay at Stella Maris. Bridget

Even though we were only in this wonderful B&B for one night, it was an exceptional experience. The hospitality of Mary and Greg, the style, decor, location, comfort, hospitality and the top-rate breakfast made our stay exceptionally memorable. We'll definitely be back. Margaret and Tony.

My wife and I spent 4 days at Stella-Maris in June. We had an excellent time. Greg and Mary treated us like family. The room's view was to die for. Overlooking Keel Bay and the mountains. The yard has direct access to the beach and we enjoyed several long walks on the beach. Greg and Mary could not have been more accommodating, greeting us with a bottle of wine upon arrival and giving us suggestions for dining in the area.

The breakfast at Stella-Maris was 'as advertised' by other raters: that is, wonderful. Mary makes wonderful pancakes. If you go, you must try them. The full Irish Breakfast prepared by Greg was great as well.

If you are going to visit Achill, Stella1Maris is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for Suit 6, the view is wonderful!!

When I walked into the entrance room, I was lost for words. We had just come back from the stark reality of the deserted village and were met with such oppulence and elegance that it took my breath away. The rooms are very spacious and have great views. Not far to the beach. Breakfast offered many choices, but is only served from 9 to 10 am.

We turned up without a booking and were made to feel like family returning home! Greg and Mary were just so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was to die for and the room was so incredibly comfortable and luxurious we decided to stay an extra night. We had a brilliant time on Achill island, so much to discover, the locals are friendly and the dinner at the bistro across from stella maris was delicious. Thanks again Greg and Mary what a beautiful B&B! Kerrilyn and Steve Reynolds.
