“Best kept secret!”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I think firstly, I should acknowledge the super communication we had with our hosts, the Corrigan's, whom promptly emailed replies to questions or queries we had. Similarly, we were provided with contact details in the event, we ran into any problems making our way to Achill.
We booked for the half term week (UK) of 26-29 May. The directions we were given were excellent, we found our way to the cottages without any difficulty. We were warmly met on arrival and shown to our cottage. The cottage itself is modern, clean and had everything provided that we would need. Everything was explained to us and we were left with a very good idea of what to do and where to go on the Island. Our hosts lived not so far away (and not too near), so were always available.
With the Island measuring 15 miles wide and 10 miles long (at there most), you would think there wasn't much to do, wrong! The Island has 5 blue flag beaches, all very picturesque, very safe cycling routes, water sports, mountain climbing and horse riding to name a few.
As is customary in Ireland, there were many pubs and good happy people.
Definitely recommend it, though would prefer to keep it a secret.
Thank you to the Corrigans, we will no doubt see you again.

Stayed in the last week of May, 4 Adults and 2 Children.
These cottages are in a great position to explore Achill.
There is everything you could need in them and couldn't really fault them as per the other reviews. When we return to Achill we will definitely be staying there again.
Thank you Stephen and Rosaleen for making our stay so enjoyable and we hope to see you again soon!

“I never did less in my life!! A perfect place to rest and relax..”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I spent 10 lovely days in achill cottages alone and with friends. The design of the cottage incorporates both the old and new worlds .. Bright spacious and traditional too. Kitchen an bathrooms were modern and immaculate and I had a wonderful memory foam mattress on my bed. The stream outside the double doors gurgled merrily along as one achill day slipped into another and I was sad to have to leave today.

“Fantastic accommodation on Achill Island”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Achill Cottages are a fantastic place to stay on Achill Island. The house is well laid out and extremely we'll maintained. We are repeat customers and would highly recommend staying there. The owners live on site and are very approachable and helpful. We will be returning again later this year!

“Best hospitality”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

I'd highly recommend a stay in one of these cottages. They were well designed and fully stocked so you have everything you need for your stay. Stephen, the proprietor, was just fantastic. He could not have been more helpful and he really looked after us and made sure we had everything and that our stay was comfortable. He really was a great host. We are already thinking of returning there!

“Lovely, relaxing stay”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Visited the cottages in October. Weather was starting to turn colder but cottages were warm, bright and comfortable including an open fire. We visited with our three children aged from 5 to 12. The cottages had more than enough room and the open plan downstairs was excellent for having the family together. The girls enjoyed kicking a ball around the common area too. The wet room in the downstairs bathroom was always filled with wetsuits and stuff from the beach. The cottages are located in easy distance to Achill sound and all the beaches but is protected from the worst of the weather that can arise which was nice. The owner was very welcoming and could not have been more helpful. Would highly recommend the cottages to other families.
