The Old Fisherman's Cottage has been our family home for many generations and has recently been renovated making it the perfect island home.

Located in the sleepy village of Dugort the cottage is set between two beautiful beaches and backs right on to the Atlantic Ocean. A truly rare and stunning setting.

We had an opportunity to take a last minute break on Achill Island and booked The Old Fishermans Cottage to enjoy the independence of a home away from home. This is the perfect place to do so. The house has been fully but sensitively modernised...More

About the neighbourhood
There are some excellent places to eat on the island and lots of pubs to enjoy a tipple listening to some traditional Irish music. In Dugort we have two pubs, one at each end of the village as well as two highly recommended restaurants.

A visit to Achill Island is the perfect antedote to a busy urban life, the only traffic jams here are caused by the sheep and the most stressful part of the day is waiting for the Guinness to settle.
