We stayed for 2 nights and had dinner on both nights. We arrived early and only had a short wait for check in. The room was nice & cosy but a bit noisy on the first night. Breakfast was great & the evening meal was just delicious. Friendly staff & good service 😎

I booked this by looking online. We were looking particularly for hotel. We were dissapointed with our experience there. I read other negative feedback on trip advisor and would say our experience is similar with the hostess. I think the staff are fine - although the hostess and hosts need to review their own customer service attitudes. The place is... More

We stayed here while at Achill and had dinner here one night too. The hotel is in a great spot, right on the beach and walking distance to everything keel has to offer. Our meal here was brilliant - we were looking forward to fresh fish and we weren't disappointed with the menu - from lobster to the biggest seafood... More

Great food, attentive service, wonderful view of the strand and Menaul hill. Site should be listed in restaurants too because its great restaurant is not even listed among the 18 on the island, which is a disservice to this establishment. I cannot provide this comment any other way in the iOS app.

Keel has a white sand beach that is only a few minutes' sauntering walk from this hotel. What could be better? We got a room that looked out over neighbours' smallholdings, one of which sported a racing pigeon loft. This really seems far from anywhere - and we like it! The restaurant meal we had here one evening was really... More

First the service is really great. The people are super nice! The food is good also and you wont be able to finish your dishes... So much good :-p For 20 euro you can have a two courses menu and for 26 a three courses menu. Go quality/price ratio!

Myself and my partner had dinner here for the first time, even though we come to Achill regularly. We both went for the vegetable soup for our starter and then the chicken pasta as our main course. The food was delicious and the portions were of a good size - i couldn't finish my pasta or even think about dessert.... More
