This cottage in Dooagh, Achill Island is in a fantastic location and was ideal for our visit. It is comfortable and has a fantastic outlook over the Atlantic Ocean which is only a few metres from the house. The kitchen equipment was sufficient for our needs but could do with updating, as could the heating available for chilly days and nights. There is an open fireplace which heats the sitting room / kitchen area and there is also an electric convection heater similar to those in the other rooms. Electricity is by a coin meter and I would advise that a supply of 1 and 2 Euro coins are taken when you go as it can run down quite quickly if the heaters are in use in more than one room for even a short time. There is a pub / restaurant nearby and several others within a short drive which provide great food. There is a small supermarket within a 5 min drive and a much bigger one 10 - 15 mins away at Achill Sound which has a good variety of produce. The owners live about 2 hours drive away but we were met on arrival by Frank who was very welcoming and passed on his local knowledge of where to eat out etc.
The house is cosy, clean, & comfy. The kids enjoyed the beach together with neighbours playfull dogs. We would love to come back some day.
