Great weekend in Achill, Ireland may have lost the rugby but Pure Magic weekend more than made up for it!
Food was fantastic, accommodation warm and spotless. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Lots to do, great kiting and SUP fantastic alternative for less windy days! Super biking routes for those not into water sports! Will definitely be back, Go raibh mile maith agat!

We went to Achill as my boyfriend is found of kitesurfing, and this beautifull island is the perfect spot for surfers of all kinds.

We stayed in Pure Magic Achill for few days with my son, and had the chance to meet all the pure magic people.

1- The place is clean, comfortable, spacious, and each room has a specific decoration with an ensuite bathroom
2- You never feel like as if you were at someone's else place, but rather like if you were home
3- The place is full of life with a pool and a restaurant/bar/snack area. You may enjoy some live music sessions as well.
4- The staff is cool, very friendly, helpfull, and available, that gives the place a "magic"touch!
5- The genuine state of mind makes of Pure Magic Achill more than a common B&B, but a place with its own soul : an sp
6- The pizzas are among the best in Ireland, and the menu/specials have a magic taste, thanks to the chief "french touch" and the bread is fresh and daily home made.

So if you are a group, a family or single, if you are looking for a true and cosy B&B in Achill, I would recommand, without hesitating, Pure Magic; as it's more than an accommodation : it's a genuine experience

post scriptum : I have no family working there, no shares, and no interest in the buisiness lol

Recently stayed here for a stage weekend with a group of 30 somethings.
It was a great location and the staff were excellent. The food in the restaurant was excellent and perfect for our needs. Pizza and a few specials were the order of the day ....Very tasty indeed.
Lovely big open fire and they were good enough to out on the Ireland -Slovakia game for us. Also we were able to organise a bus for a pub crawl of the Island.
Breakfast was excellent as is helped by the fact that one of the owners is a pastry chef from France....Excellent stuff...
Rooms were comfortbale and all ensuite.

Would highly recommend this for a group going away for a weekend

Very welcoming establishment. Will definitely return. Alex who runs the lodge was very helpful. I didn't arrive till 2am due to unforeseen events and alex waited to greet me. Gary, the kite surfing guru, was more than helpful with getting me up and running.

The staff were really friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food, dinner and breakfast, were delicious. The beds were terrible and I hardly slept all night as I found the room so stuffy. Our room had fantastic views and our stay would have been much more pleasent if the bed was not so soft and lumpy. They have all the right ingredients for a great place and changing the beds can be easily rectified. I know they are only open a year as a hotel so hopefully this is something they will do.

It's not always easy to get everything right when you are holidaying with 2 adults and 3 lads (ages 10 to 15 yrs) but we managed to do just that on our recent stay at the Pure Magic hotel. Friendly and welcoming, warm and inviting from start to finish. We flew training kites on our first day and were welcomed back to the hotel with wonderful food and a fire lit in the bar/restaurant. Our breakfasts kept us going 'til late in the afternoon. We ate freshly cooked bread and fresh fruit salad every morning and even had French crepes courtesy of the lovely chef, Alex. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a great holiday. Achill has so much to offer - blue flag beaches, the breathtaking Atlantic Drive, walks and galleries - and now it has Pure Magic, too!

A great location, a great venue and great friendly service. It was kid friendly and obviously regularly used by some families. The only problem was that the mattresses in our room were way past their use by date and were terribly uncomfortable. Before staying again I would have to ask if this had been fixed (we let them know of the problem).
