The beehive is great if you need to rest and relax while visiting Achill. I don't think the prices are way over the top but just a little above the norm. I love to pop in get a coffee sit outside and just enjoy the views that are well worth paying a little extra for.

On our trips to Achill Island, we have eaten here twice, usually for tea and a dessert item. Although the food has been good, I would have to agree with others that it is way overpriced. The desserts are not unusual or expensive to make, so I am not sure why the prices are high. If you want a snack, fine, but be prepared to pay more than expected.

The last time I went to the Beehive was end of September and it was the only place open in the afternoon for coffee and cake. My parents were over for a visit from Germany and they've seen a lot of the island and had coffee in plenty of places all over the country and they were shocked how expensive a simple cup of coffee was. We had cake as well and it was very average, dry and not the biggest slices. I had ice cream and it was covered in little ice crystals.
This was however not my first visit to the Beehive, this year in March I was there on a warm sunny day sitting outside with a lovely cup of ice cream and loved it. Didn't have coffee or cake so didn't notice the high prices.
The general setting is nice, it's basically eating in a crafts shop, one can see the ocean and cliffs from the terrace.

I had lunch at the Beehive...the food was delicious, but quite expensive for what it was. It was cold in the dining room, which when thinking of a coffee shop/bistro, you think warm...not the case.

We had lunch here one day. The food was fine but the cost of it was crazy. The crab salad was expensive for what I got, there was so little crab in.
