Our weekend at the Water's Edge was just divine!!! Beautiful room, very, very comfortable with a lovely en-suite. Sinead is an absolute joy, all ways smiling and full of cheer. Very welcoming and all ways willing to get you whatever you need. Breakfast was just amazing, lots of choice, though our favorite was the traditional breakfast, served with a basket of homemade soda bread and freshly baked muffins, which were still warm and perfect with a cuppa while waiting for the fry. Have to say this is also in a great location as it stumbling distance from our favorite pub on the island, The Valley House, which is just fantastic as getting around on Achill without a car is a none starter. Great views, an awesome lake 300yrds which rocks on a North Westerly if you are a kite boarder and is unknown to all but a few! It is in our opinion undoubtedly the best B&B on the magical island of Achill. Thanks Sinead, you are the best! Gary & Lucy :)

Arriving on my bike after finishing the Greenway, I received a warm and thoughtful welcome, and the room was well appointed, comfortable and private. There was a good variety of breakfasts available and the host was tremendously well-informed about local history and geography, and local amenities. This was the best stay in a b&b I've had in years.

My best friend and I stayed at Water’s Edge for a couple of nights in mid September. We had a great time thanks to Sinead, the extremely friendly and welcoming owner of the B&B. Sinead made us feel at home, and gave us great insider tips of where to eat and where to go for evening events. She was very knowledgeable about the island itself and provided us with plenty of information about places to see.
Our room was nicely decorated, with a comfortable double bed and was very clean. A water pump (situated at the first floor) started every time we used water (opened the tap in the bathroom, flushed the toilet, ...); it was a bit noisy during the day, however it was always switched off in the evening, therefore during the night it was very quiet. Tea/coffee facilities were available in the dining room at the ground floor. There was a very good selection of food for breakfast and the full Irish breakfast was delicious (one of the best I have ever had!).
The B&B is located in a very nice and quiet area of the Island; and walks of different length can be done starting from the B&B.
Our experience at Water’s Edge was very positive and if we will be back to Achill we would definitely return to this B&B.

We were to spend just one night on Achill Island and we wanted a really good B&B. After consulting Trip Advisor we decided on Water's Edge - we were not disappointed. The owner, Sinead, was just as friendly and as welcoming as we had expected. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the ensuite, and the bed was very comfortable so we had a great night's sleep. Sinead takes pride in doing her very best to make her guests comfortable and well looked after. She made us the best breakfast we had throughout our holiday. If we return to Achill Island, Water's Edge will be our first stop.

I had the pleasure of staying a week in the wonderful 'Ocean View' in the Spectacular setting of Doogurt. The Accommodation was excellent. Modern and spacious on the inside (and spotlessly clean) quaint and characterful on the outside. It has all the mod cons, comforts and space to keep the kids happy after a day on the beach. The setting is perfect... only yards from the picture postcard beach; which lies at the bottom of a spectacular mountain which dominates the surroundings; and is very private..... not part of a holiday village. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful too. 10 out of 10.
