“Stunning room overlooking the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Achill and the stay at the Stella Maris. We were very fortunate to book the suite overlooking the beach, a truly stunning view in a very comfortable setting. Very friendly welcome and a great breakfast. Definitely to be recommended, we'll be back.

Room Tip: Go for the suite, room number 6 if you can. Fantastic view of the beach.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

The location is great, views to the beach and close to several restaurants.
We had great rooms for a family, two together on one floor so it was very convenient as no other rooms closely.
The breakfast was excellent, very fresh and healthy, the pancakes were superb.
The downstairs area was very formal, personally I would have preferred a few comfy sofas and turf fire.

Room Tip: For a family two rooms together at the top of a flight of stairs was great

For a week long trip around the week of Ireland, Achill was our first stop. We decided to stay in B&B's which we don't normally do so was a little wary!

Wow, this place was fabulous! Located in Keel and is essentially on the beach! The large rooms are fabulous with gorgeous 4 poster beds and the place is spotless! You can come and go as you wish and Greg & Mary are just lovely people. We were also able to avail of a discount in the local restaurant by mentioning we were staying in the Stella Maris.

Breakfast was also lovely, would recommend trying out the pancakes! Yum yum!!

My husband & I spent several days at Stella-Maris in July of this year. We were there celebrating his sister's birthday and also to visit his father's homeland. We had a wonderful time, and Greg and Mary are very warm and friendly hosts. The room's view was to die for, it overlooked Keel Bay and the mountains. The yard has direct access to the beach. Greg and Mary could not have been more accommodating, greeting us with a bottle of wine upon arrival and giving us suggestions for dining in the area.

The breakfast at Stella-Maris was exceptional. Mary makes wonderful pancakes. If you go, you must try them.

If you are going to visit Achill, Stella-Maris is the place to stay.
