My husband and I stayed at The Bervie during one of the most warm, sunny weeks that Ireland has enjoyed since 1960 which made our stay even that more bright and cheerful. Elizabeth greeted us like she had known us forever. Our room overlooked The Strand and the breeze was delicious. The bed was comfortable and breakfast was delectable. The only draw back was the small bathroom. The Bervie's location was great - within walking distance of several pubs and restaurants and of course, The Strand.

We arrived at Achill Island shortly before dark on Halloween. Since the tourist season had ended, most of the hotels and B&Bs were closed. Fortunately we were directed to the Bervie Guesthouse which was remaining open for another week. The friendly owner, Elizabeth, took us to a cozy room in the part of the house that had once been a coast guard station. The view of the ocean from the large window was breathtaking. A short walk across the lawn and down the stairs brought us to Keel Strand where we took a long walk. Over a delicious breakfast the next morning, we decided to book the room for a second night. Elizabeth and her husband John were extremely helpful, assisting us in making telephone calls and recommending a pub for dinner. Our entire stay on beautiful Achill Island was wonderful and we will definitely return to Bervie during our next trip to Ireland.

Our stay at the Berive was terrific. Elizabeth and John are superb hosts, not only welcoming us on our first day, but wishing us well when we left. The food was fine, the room small, but quite adequate and clean. What really sets this place apart, though, is the oceanfront location. Anyone who loves the sea will love the Bervie. We look forward to returning for a longer visit.
