This hotel is very easy to find and the perfect place to stay when visiting Achill island. It is family run and is all that traditional Irish hospitality has to offer. The family are extremely nice and couldn't do more for us. I will recommend to everyone I know and I will stay again

We stayed here for one night in May 2016. If your looking for a modern hotel then this most definitely isn't for you. The rooms are like stepping back in time to the seventies, cramped, a bit dingy and a tiny bathroom. A positive is that they are clean and have everything you need. The hotel is family run and...

Popped in for a drink after a long cycle ride. The bar is part of the hotel. Staff very welcoming and the bar is authentic Irish decor and hospitality. Worth dropping into. Serves a good range of food too at very reasonable prices. Also, right beside Achill Tourist Information Office.

We stayed in Achill Sound in September and entered into the hotel bar one evening for some food and drink and we enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff so much, that we went back again.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights during the summer and overall we would say that this hotel reflects the attitude of Achill Tourism as a whole. Achill is a beautiful place to visit but those in the tourism industry have never heard of going the extra mile. Unanimously they whine that their season is short and therefore investment...

Whilst on holiday in the local area we visited the hotel restaurant on two occasions. The menu had plenty of choice and we enjoyed our meals. We found the staff friendly and welcoming. The hotel is in a great location with a beautiful outlook.

The staff make this hotel ! ... Very outdated ... needs a serious make over ! Rooms are small, dark, dreary & cold ! .. However views from the room are beautiful...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Achill Sound Hotel, or in the Irish language, Ostan Gob A'Choire. Peter and Loretta Connaughton, and all of the Connaughton family, assure you a famous warm welcome to the friendly and relaxed Achill Sound Hotel. The hotel is located just over the bridge from the mainland, and in the heart of Achill Sound, the main Achill village. Close to the village shops and amenities, the Achill Sound Hotel is one of the most popular hotels on Achill Island. For nearly a century we've been offering affordable accommodation, great home-cooked food from our bar/restaurant and the ideal location for exploring Achill and the surrounding areas. We are a family hotel and add a personal touch to brighten your stay from all the family and staff. Enjoy a pint in the bar, share a song or a story and feel part of the family and the village. We have a range of double, single, twin and family rooms to choose from. All rooms have TVs, and are en-suite. From here in Achill Sound you can also explore the rest of the beautiful island with its stunning Atlantic vistas, towering mountains, cliffs, unique plants and animals, intriguing and sad history, cosy pubs, safe and scenic bicycle greenway all the way from Westport, and perfect blue-flag beaches. At once windswept, barren, wild, lush, rich and beautiful. An adventure seekers dream, or a quiet Irish paradise to escape the busy world. Come visit Achill. The hotel has plenty of safe and free parking as well as storage for bicycles and packed lunches for exploring the island. ... more   less
