i stayed at the Stella Maris two years ago with my two children during a wet and chilly summer. None of that mattered. We loved our accomodation-Greg and Gary provided a home from home-comfort, warmth, hospitality and a great breakfast!. i especially loved the location- so close to Keel beach with gorgeous views of the sea and Minaun cliffs.
Last week I invited a good friend and her two children to join us for five days. My friend is returning soon to her native Nepal and I wanted her to experience the wild and uncontaminated beauty of Achill.
Thankfully, the weather was brilliant and show-cased my favourite place in Ireland in all her abundant glory. Our stay at the fabulous Stella Maris served to assure a great holiday. Lovely rooms, an amazing relaxed atmosphere, wonderful hospitality and a delicious choice of beautifully cooked breakfasts.with lots of fresh fruits , cheeses, yogurts jams,- you name it, Mary provides it.
Mary and Greg also have a lovely garden fronting on to the beach and I have particularly fond memories of swinging gently on the carved garden seat in the warm late evening breeze with my children and gazing up at the mystical cloud formations draping over Slievemore.mountain.
My friend and her children were equally impressed with their experience and she intends to spread the word.Thank you Mary, Greg, Nicola and Helena for making my stay so enjoyable. See you next year if not before!!!
