My first time in Achill Island, traveling with my mother and sister. They had a twin bed room, and I had a single. Lovely view out the front of the room over the sea looking south. My room was small but had all one needs from a room for the night. Rooms were en suite and beds were comfortable. Nice...

Teach Cruachan is a perfect place to stay on Achill. Dooagh is quiet and peaceful but with a couple of pub options for dinner that make for pleasant evenings. Michael and Roisin are wonderful hosts who take great care of their guests - from breakfast to resources on hikes and recommendations about the island. I will happily return!

Our visit to Achill and our stay at Teach Cruachan could not have been better, we were sad to leave and all planning a return trip.

Loved the location with a great view of the sea from the breakfast room. Also enjoying being able to use this room and living room area at any time and being able to make tea/coffee when you wanted to. Within walking distance of 2 pubs, one with great food and staff.
