Greet you at the door friendly, perfect restaurant recommendation, quiet clean room, breakfast worthy of gobbling it all down, and an easy escape from Cork to the West. Loved it. Need an excuse to come back.

Achill House is a quick walk from the bus station if you don't have too much luggage, and a very short walk from the city centre. The house was spotless, with brand new fixtures in the small...

I had orginally booked in to stay with another B and B but found that it was no very desirable. I stumbled into achill house by acident when a very nice lady- Helena gave me a warm welcome. The room was well kept, cleaned every day and breakfast was always served very promptly. I will definately be back.
