We enjoyed our visit to the island. Our first day we experienced a full gale and the seascapes were spectacular, something we are very glad we experienced if only for the photo opportunity. Wonderful unspoilt scenery and lovely little harbours.
The house was everything as advertised, and more. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and the local supermarket was only a 5 minute drive away.
The local restaurants were very good and served huge portions.
A drive to the top of Minaun was rewarded with a wonderful view of Keel Strand and Keem.
We will definitely be visiting the island again and have no hesitation in recommending Achill Shore View.

Really enjoyed our few days in Achill Shore View. House was fantastic & very well equipped. It is the perfect place to go to if you want a bit of peace & tranquillity. The weather was wet & windy but it didn't matter, it was lovely to look out at it from the cosy sitting room. Plenty of books, games & DVDs to keep us entertained the the wifi was really good considering the location & weather. Mobile phone signal was a bit hit & miss but didn't bother us. Would definitely consider returning in the future.

We spend a week in Achill and fell in love with the house and the island. The house is beautiful, so peaceful with amazing views. It had everything you could need, and was even beautiful in the rain!
We have 3 young children and the secure garden was great, the donkey at the end of the garden was a highlight & being able to walk down to the stone beach with the 3 boys was just great. Couldn't recommend this house enough, none of us wanted to leave.
There was plenty to do on the island, the aquarium although small was so interesting and the boys loved it / the fairy forest in Valley house was great fun / the beaches are spectacular & kayaking on Keel Lake ..amazing!
Cannot recommend enough for a relaxing break away with simple outdoor fun!

This is our second time to stay in Achill Shore View and once again everything was perfect! The welcome pack is a wonderful touch, the teabags, milk and biscuits were much appreciated at the end of a long journey! Everything in the house is of high quality from the furniture to the bedding and towels. Everyone slept well and found the house so comfortable just to hang around and chill out in. I cannot recommend this house enough. We will definitely be returning!
Thanks to both Anne and Vincent for making our stay such a pleasure.

We had a wonderful time staying here in Achill Shore View. The house does not disappoint with fantastic views and everything you could want. They have thought of everything here, the kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of games and dvds to keep everyone entertained if the weather isn't great. The kids had a great time playing in the garden which was safely fenced in. They also enjoyed going for a dip just minutes walk from the house.
The only negative was that there were a lot of insects on the deck at night (not the fault of the house of course!!) so I would recommend bringing some insect repellent or citronella candles.
I would highly recommend a stay here. We are already booked for another stay!!
