“Fantastic accommodation on Achill Island”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We were three adults and got a beautiful newly renovated room upstairs with a gorgeous ocean view. The hosts are very nice and helpful and breakfast is delicious. It's a great location for experiencing Achill Island - the end of the road with a beautiful sandy beach and several hiking opportunities is just a ten minutes drive. We were able to stay only for one night but could easily imagine to spend a week there.

It is like a postcard scene, white washed farm houses and sheep grazing not only in the fields but on the road. The B&B has unobstructed views of the "wild Atlantic coast" and the rooms are quite and extremely clean. Roisin is a delightful host and makes you feel at home.

Familiar atmosphere. Great scenic view and very helpful and friendly hosts. Open-handed hospitality and a delicious and varied breakfast. Thanks to Michael jun. for playing the pipes for us! I wish I can see Europe highest cliffs next time - but was very lucky to see the Dolphins!

Room Tip: Every room will be wonderful!

Hi Ursula, Thanks so much for your valued review. We're so glad that your dad brought you to Achill Island when you were a child and you treasured the memories so much that you decided to bring your son to Achill. Between the great weather and the hunting pod of dolphins, you were lucky alright! We hope to see you in Achill again some time in the future...maybe with a Grandchild :).
Best regards, Roisin and Michael

This place is fantastic, the view is the real appeal here. Unobstructed views of a field of sheep with the ocean, mountains and cliffs in the background. Breakfast is very good, cooked to order. Indulge at least one morning and order the French Toast, made with brioche and to die for! They rent bikes too and it's a wonderful starting point for a cycle. It's about a 30 minute walk to Keel but there is a pub 2 mins down the road, so really it's got all you need;) Gracious and attentive hosts. The rooms are pretty average, very clean and homey and if you can request the front rooms with the views. Highly recommend this place and will return!

We were lucky with the weather and it was a spectacular drive all the way to Keem. After checking in with Roisin we took her advice and drove around to Keem Bay. Feeling energetic after a couple of hours in the car we walked to the top of the mountain where there was an old artillery post. It was a strenuous walk but we were up for the challenge and the views from the top were breathtaking. Our rooms had views straight out to the ocean. They were comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was delicious. Thankyou Roisin and Michael for a memorable stay.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a great view of the ocean across the road.

We could only stay on Achill Island one night on our whirlwind tour of Ireland.

Teach Cruachan is a lovely B&B with cosy, well-appointed rooms, beautiful views of the ocean and gracious, helpful hosts in Roisin and Michael. The breakfast was excellent, especially given how ravenous we all were after all the climbing and walking we got up to on the island during our stay.

We would definitely recommend spending time exploring Achill Island and Teach Cruachan is a very comfortable base from which to do so.

Hi Leah,
Thanks a million for taking the time during your travels to review Teach Cruachan. It was lovely to meet you all during your family trip to Ireland and we hope you'll make it back over from Oz again. It's a good thing your phone fell screen up on the mountain, or you'd be remembering Croaghaun for all the wrong reasons :).
Kind regards,
