Such positive surprise - nice and clean B&B with warm atmosphere and decoration. Great location close to cliffs highest in Europe with two sandy beaches nearby. Very friendly staff / owners and fresh tasty breakfast. Great disassembly point for cyclists and bikers and good starting point for bike trips.

My Husband and I enjoyed 3 sunny days on Achill Island in late May. Teach Cruachan is a comfortable, relaxing B&B with beautiful views and a delicious full Irish breakfast. Roisin and Michael are helpful and easygoing and lovely to chat with about Achill and life in general. There's a friendly Pub with food a short walk from Teach Cruachan...

Location was everything we could hope for, as was the accommodation. Generous tasty breakfasts. Plenty of advice when requested. Within 100 yards of Gielty's pub/café. Scenery outstanding. The beaches are beautiful and plentiful.

This was our first time at a B&B. Micheal and Roisin made us feel very welcome. They were fantastic hosts, helpful with suggestions on where to go to experience the beauty of Achill Island. Roisin's fabulous home cooked breakfasts fueled us up for the day(s) so we had energy to explore. They even had tips on where to stop on...

Hi Leonie, Thanks very much for your kind words - we're so glad you enjoyed your stay and the Irish wedding. It surely helps when the weather is as good as it has been (so far!) this year. If you ever make it over from Canada again give us a shout :) Kind regards, Roisin and Michael

Such a nice and comfortable B&B. Perfectly clean, great breakfasts and a pleasant, quiet room. Roisín and Michael were very friendly and helpful. Beautiful views of the sea and if you're lucky, you'll see the dolphins playing out in the bay.

Roisin and Michael are really welcoming. They seem to go the extra mile, made us tea on arrival, suggested places to go for the evening, for walks. The evening we got there a pod of dolphins came hunting in the bay, about 200m from our bedroom window. Have a look at the website, Roisin filmed them and the clip is...
