We LOVE Achill and have been coming here for years but it has been difficult to find really good comfortable accommodation. All that wild western weather can make it difficult to get a nice warm, comfortable house at busy times. And sadly for such a beautiful place, some rental properties are in dire need of an upgrade. So it was always a hit and miss affair getting the right place...Then the clouds parted and Achill Shore View dawned!! A gorgeous house with wonderful hotel quality beds and bed linen and towels supplied. The views are gorgeous, and there's lovely silvered decking outside to enjoy the warm sunshine (yes, it does shine). When it doesnt shine, there's so much to keep you happy indoors. A generous well-fitted kitchen with loads of equipment to suit even the fussiest cook. A big dining table to enjoy long breakfasts or a good game of scrabble at. A tempting Japanese soaking bath for a long thoughtful read. A gorgeous lounge with squashy sofas and footstools and a huge tv/dvd. Its so well thought-out and it's obvious that careful consideration has been given to the comfort and relaxation of guests. From extra towels for the beach, to the welcome pack of tea, coffee, wine and biccys, to the huge selection of dvds, books and games for that inevitable rainy day, nothing is found wanting. I highly recommend Achill Shore View. Unfortunately, I also am regretting that all of you now know how great a house it is, because it will make it that much harder to book at busy times. But hey, enjoy!!
Achill island is for the traveler who wants a rugged, outdoors oriented vacation.
Unfortunately the weather was prohibitive with fog, mist, rain and high winds.
We appreciated the vast video library and the house's modern décor. Recommend that you book during season though.
Amazing house which is accessed by a private road ,property itself is gated very handy if you have small kids or pets in our case two dogs and there is also a really good secure dog run .the house itself is very comfortable and you feel at home right away which we did ,great kitchen and large living room great bedrooms and the master bedroom has a window from which the views of the shore is magical which is only a few meters away my oldest son had the attic room which in his words was like a little apartment which had its own bathroom with a Japanese style soak bath .
the house comes with plenty of dvds and games and its own library of books so there is plenty to do after a day of touring around achill and beyond .to the side of the kitchen the outside space is brilliant with a good decking area with seating and tables .we really enjoyed our time at this house and cant wait to return it is an ideal base for touring the area with the beautiful town of westport not far away .i just wish we could have spent more time here if you are looking for accommodation in achill you have found it .......
Highly Recommended. From the moment of first contact with Amanda we got Excllent Service. This continued on arrival when Vincent met us on arrival.
Shore view is Must to stay in. Clean. Comfortable with Peacefull Surroundings. Stunning views. A Real feel of Home.
Kitchens to suit a Master chef yet easy to operate by a Layman like me.I can not Speak Highly enough of Vincent the House Mgr and the owners Amanda and Derek Coffey. Go there. Stay There. This will be everything you dreamed of in Holiday Accomadation. Enjoy The Wild Atlantic way all round you even from your Living room and Bedroom windows.
I am not related in any way to anyone connected with this property. I will be staying here again and again so book early.
This was our third stay in the achill shore view and once again it didnt disappoint. As always the house was spotless clean and very comfortable. The weather wasn't so good this time but it didn't make any difference to our weekend. The house is the perfect place to hang out when it's raining. Loads of space, board games and dvds to keep the kids entertained.
Id highly recommend a stay here
The location was superb, the cottage was fantastic, a perfect break for myself and the family. If I could give it a higher rating I would!
