an all round excellent experience from the greeting you on arrival to the time you leave very refreshed from the experience, the owners make you very welcome and always have time for you no matter how busy they are, the afternoon tea is an old fashioned treat that has been lost elsewhere but retains its charm here, the scones, jam ,cream plus the beautiful china make it a real treat not to be missed

We stayed here 2 nights. We arrived during the dinner service but despite the hosts being very busy, they welcomed us very warmly and attentively. The hotel is beautifully situated and our sea view room had a truly good sea view. The backyard of the hotel opens right on to the beach. The room was comfortable with a better bed than we had most places (most places we stayed had firmer beds than I like; this was soft without being overly soft). The food was good and we enjoyed our stay here very much. We would definitely stay here again.

we came to the bervie on our honeymoon - I was born in ireland and was introducing my new wife to the country - and we were so lucky to go to keel and find the bervie. if I could take someone to ireland and show them what was special about irish people - I would take them to the bervie. the people are lovely, really beautiful beaches and walks - we even went swimming in may. they cook beautiful food, play great music, and keep a wonderful mood of gentle humour and interest going with their guests. Go there! can't recommend it enough.

We were only there for one night and even though the weather wasn't great we really, really loved. It is a total gem and the island is so beautiful. The best breakfast we had our entire stay in Ireland and we were there for 18 days. I would love to go back when it is warmer and stay there for several days. Beautiful, breathtaking scenery and the accommodations were as close to home as you can get. Lovely rooms and plenty of spaces to curl up with a good book and just look at the ocean. The have a laptop in the back room (all glass windows) overlooking the ocean for anyone to use. The rooms are immaculate! The owners (elizabeth and john, I think) are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet. By far, one of our favorite memories of the entire trip.

The Bervie Guesthouse has a spiritual quality that fills you with love. From the moment we walked in we were greeted with such welcoming that it felt that we had come home. The family history indeed danced before our feet and enveloped us with safety and a longing for more. We could have stayed a lifetime and we felt that we did. The food was outstanding and the little extras, meeting our peculiar needs were deeply appreciated. Elizabeth is a very special person, whose hospitality is of the truest kind. John added the life of humour and service that made our visit so enjoyable. The staff, all of them, are beautiful souls who give angelic touches. We can't wait to return and enter the gates of this sacred place again and again. We are so grateful.

On our first trip to Ireland in 1996 we found the Bervie by chance through the recommendation of a local gentleman we met. We loved it then and we loved it on our most recent trip. Elizabeth and John are fantastic hosts and go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and at home. We love the Bervie - the room, views and food were all excellent. This place is magical! We were there during a storm but still had a fabulous time and enjoyed the beauty of Achill Island. The Atlantic Drive was spectacular. A place not to be missed on any trip to Ireland!

What a magical place. Liz and John (prop) are so welcoming and friendly. The accommodation is atmospheric, very comfortable and a home from home with a uniquely Bervie style. I cannot stress how superb the food was both for breakfast and dinner. We will be back at least once a year for our Bervie "fix"!!
