Superb
Very comfortable and well located property. Plenty of parking space - we had 4 cars and no problem with parking space. I can recommend a visit to Achill Island Distillery which is a 2 min walk from the house, and the nearest pub is 2 min drive away. The house is quite large and suitable for larger groups. Overall we had a very nice time.

Perfect house for large groups
This is a fantastic house for a large group, 14 of us got together here for a family reunion and had a wonderful week. There is a huge amount of sleeping space, two large living rooms and a kitchen large enough to seat all of us. When the weather is up to it the two picnic tables are perfect for having meals outside. Communication was terrific and they were very amenable to specific requests such as cots and high chairs for infants. The house is in a central location perfect for getting to all parts of the island. Highly recommended!

Brilliant
I stayed here with my family of 13 in total, the house had plenty of room and the views are just unbelievable. We stayed for three nights and the only problem we had is that is wasn't long enough. Mairead and Vincent where very friendly and helpful, I would recommend anyone to stay here, a great house in a brilliant location.

Great stay - lots of room for large groups
We were a group of 6 adults and 9 kids and had a fabulous week stay at Avondale house. There is plenty of room to accommodate large groups. Everyone had a blast and we packed so much in - surfing lesson, paddle boarding, pub quiz and lots of trips to the beach. The house was really comfortable and we had great nights in with kids playing board games and having fun. Thank you 😊 Also the hosts are really nice and made sure we had everything we needed.

Exceptional
This is an exceptional property which is clearly run by people who understand the concepts of comfort and cleanliness, and care about the needs of holidaymakers. We had 6 adults and 6 children staying for a week. The location is at the centre of Achill Island, giving easy access to the various beaches and facilities on the island. The usual items such as bed linen, towels, and duvets are supplied, but in addition there were items like salt, spices, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, and much more there when we arrived, which was very handy, and in my experience unusual. Everything works without any additional effort on the part of the occupants - hot water constantly available, heating, showers, kitchen appliances etc., and there is plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans and other kitchen essentials to cater for large groups of people. And it was exceptionally clean. The house is very large and the rooms are also spacious. Two sitting rooms allowed for a 'child free' sitting area. There is a generous size garden too which catered well for the children. We had such a large party of 12 that we were concerned as to whether the house could accommodate all of us in comfort, but it certainly did - it was perfect. We will be back.

Excellent House for large group!
I've just returned from staying at the Avondale House in Bunacurry with an additional 13 people ( ages 2-75) and would like to thank Mairead and Vincent for a wonderful week in a wonderful House on the amazing Achill Island. This is our 2nd year at the Avondale House and I can't speak more highly of its facilitaties and location. All mod cons and plenty of room to accommodate a large group like ours , close proximity to numerous of spectacular beaches and a plethora of great places to eat and enjoy a pint! Looking forward to booking this place for 2023! Highly recommended 👏

Walsh Family Reunion
Hi Mairéad Recently arrived home and just wanted to send a quick note to thank you (and Vincent) for allowing us to use your beautiful home over the last 9 days or so. The house and garden were perfect for our needs and we all had a really nice time visiting Achill - a really beautiful place in all weathers. We had a lovely time on mum’s first anniversary with our Achill aunties, uncle and cousins helping us to mark the occasion. We will all recommend Avondale to anybody visiting Achill in the future and hope to return again ourselves, perhaps on another anniversary. On behalf of myself and the rest of the ‘Walsh/Cooney’ clan thanks once again. Regards Liam Walsh
