Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our stay at Teach Cruachan was excellent. The location is perfect and the view spectacular. But most of all, the friendliness and helpfulness of Roisin and Michael and their family was what we enjoyed most. We had to leave very early in the morning for a meeting with friends in Kerry and so we settled up the night before and told Roisin that we would just help ourselves to a bowl of cereal in the morning so not to disturb her. But she got up before dawn and fixed us eggs and smoked salmon. That's what we call going above and beyond. We highly recommend Teach Cruachan.

We were warmly welcomed by Roisin and Michael. We were offered coffee/tea on arrival and told to make ourselves at home. Our room was lovely. Beautiful views, clean, comfortable.. all we could ask for. Breakfast was lovely and my husband is still talking about his mackerel breakfast… fit for a king!! We hired bikes from Michael and it was lovely to know there was no rush returning bikes at a set time. Everything was made easy for us and thank you both for your hospitality.

We had a fantastic stay with Roisín and Michael. We stayed in room 6 which was large and modern, beautifully decorated with a fantastic view of the sea. We had our infant son with us and they could not have been more accommodating. Breakfast was delicious. Teach Cruachan is in a great location on the island with an easy walk to a few restaurants.

Had a lovely 2 night stay at Roisin & Michael’s beautiful B&B. Communication was easy and fast, they accommodated our very late arrival. We had the most delicious cooked to order breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and comfortable and the lounge was welcoming and inviting. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the beauty of Achill Island and the hospitality of Roisin & Michael. We’ll be back!

We had a lovely stay with my husband for two nights at Teach Cruachan. The location is perfect for exploring Achill Island and its beauty. Our room was spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. We loved the sea view. The breakfast had many options to choose from, and everything was delicious, served with a warm smile. The coffee was very good. You could also make tea in the dining area when you wanted, which was a nice touch. Roisin and Michael were so welcoming and helpful as hosts. You can really tell they care about their guests.

Roisin and Michael are the most welcoming hosts I’ve met. They will go above and beyond for their guests to make sure you have a lovely and comfortable stay. Roisin is also a fab cook so breakfast isn’t a disappointment!

The guesthouse is so lovely, beautiful views, bright, clean, modern rooms. Roisin and Micheal were excellent hosts and breakfast was delicious (have the french toast, so good!). Dooagh is between Keel & Keem beaches. Very beautiful spot. Will definitely be back.
