The Achill Head Hotel is the best value on the island for a consistently good lunch. Mussels for €5.50, soup & sandwich combo served with side salads for €6, huge, gorgeous Irish breakfast served until 4pm. It's clean, friendly staff! Highly recommend!

I love visiting the Achill Head Hotel,the location is just perfect, the Management and staff are pleasant, welcoming and can do enough for you. The food is fabulous and the home made brown bread and apple pies are mouth-watering. I also love the fresh fish and I suggest you try the Sea food Platter you will certainly enjoy it.
