“Fantastic Ocean View Cottage Halloween Break”
Reviewed November 5, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

3 intrepid walkers stayed at Ocean View cottage at Dugort, Achill Island over the Halloween break. The cottage far exceeded our expectations as it was fully equipped to meet all of our needs. The layout was excellent with good use of natural materials throughout. Stunning views and close proximity to the beach. The hot shower and open fire were a great draw after long walks each day. Very relaxing time in wonderful surroundings. All credit due to the owner of this cottage. We will certainly stay at Ocean View again.

This review speaks for itself and cannot be surpassed. It encapsulates the spirit and the character of Ocean View and indeed the whole of Achill Island, which is world renown for its natural amenities both in quality and number. People who participate in a variety of challenging physical activities deserve the comforts of a well equipped modern and fit for purpose unit on their return to base. Well done to these intrepid walkers. Please come back soon …..Achill Island needs you!

Val met us on arrival and was very helpful. The accomodation is tidy , functional and set only a short distance from nearest beach. It has all necessary ammenities and preparing food in the kitchen with cloud topped mountains and beaches outside the window was such a pleasure. The Island itself is jaw droppingly beautiful with mountains, beaches and plenty of secluded spots available to just lie back and absorb the stunning landscape. The whole family had a wonderful time and enjoyed walking, cycling, relaxed drives around the island and dining out. The food was good in almost everyplace apart from The Strand Hotel in Dugort. It took 30mins to take our order and then an hour more for it to arrive and wasnt worth the wait. Daughter just wanted chicken nuggets but got a mixture of nuggets and scampi, myself i ordered chowder and it came lukewarm with a skin on top as if it had been reheated and contained crab sticks instead of fresh. This I am glad to say was the only negative in what was a wonderful break in a wonderful setting. .

It’s always nice to learn that the visitors had such a positive holiday experience during their stay at Ocean View, Dugort, Achill Island. It really is a “stunning place" and it’s good to know that they were, for the most part, very impressed with what is generally available in the surrounding area.

Absolutely perfect accommodation. Has everything you could need to make your home from home, spotlessly clean, perfectly situated for exploring Achill, and so close to the beautiful Dugort Beach you can walk.
Val was an absolute pleasure to deal with, welcoming and friendly.
Great Value and would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.
Will definitely be back!

Located, as it is, in the midst of so many natural amenities hopefully adds to the overall sense of satisfaction. Cleanliness, availability of adequate utilities and services, ease of access and general user friendliness completes an attractive holiday package. It's always good to know that the guests recognise and appreciate this.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

From the off set Val was helpful and welcoming and we appreciated his help finding the house and his friendly tour of all it had to offer.The house's location is fantastic and with a little explore we came across three stunning beaches. The views on local drives were amazing and in terms of getting away Achill Island is a haven. The house is modern, clean, bright and cosy. All facilities were great, it felt like a home from home. Great value for money - we'll be back!

Our aim is to create a pleasant, safe and enjoyable environment for both adults and children alike. Easy access to all the natural amenities in the area is definitely a major advantage and providing indoor facilities which are clean, user friendly and fit for purpose adds to the sense of guest satisfaction.
