The room was perfect. Easy to find and brilliantly located. Geraldine was easy going and friendly and the breakfast was really good!
Geraldine and her family were lovely. Rooms were large, en-suite and had coffee/tea facilities. We had a great time playing with buttons (the lamb who seems to think it's a dog!). Geraldine was very easy to get in contact with and had great tips about the area. Breakfast was plentiful and filling. We would love to stay here again when we visit Achill (beautiful island).
My husband and I felt so very welcome to Irish Achill Island and to Geraldine's B&B. Geraldine was a gracious host; accommodating to our needs and anticipating what we may need to ensure a wonderful stay.
The room had a beautiful view and breakfast was expansive and delicious.
We would recommend Geraldine's B&B to anyone who would like a cozy, intimate place to stay in the midst of the beautiful area of Achill Village.
Geraldine was a wonderful host. I made a mess of my booking but she was more then happy to have us stay on the correct night we wanted. Geraldine has a great knowledge of the island and was able to recommend us a wonderful fish restaurant 'The Chalet' during our stay. All in all a very nice stay! Thanks Geraldine
Rooms were clean and tidy, and warm. Lots of storage space for big bags, full length mirror and tv - these finer details were great touches. Geraldine was always helpful and supplied the best breakfast on our whole trip in Ireland - kept me going all day! Thanks Geraldine!
Highly recommend this wonderful b & b. Great location, Lovely hosts and plentiful breakfast! Be sure to try the seaweed bath too, it's excellent.
Geraldine is amazing. We were able to find the place which is located in an absolutely amazing part of the country. The rooms were well appointed, spacious, fresh/new linens and very clean. We were in an offseason so some things in the small community weren't open - however, Geraldine sorted out a dinner reservation for us locally at the last minute and also gave great suggestions of what to see in the short time we had in Achill. Having lived in the area for her entire life, she was truly amazing in her knowledge, helpfulness and openness to answer all of our questions. She was quick to answer any correspondence I had with her and also was accommodating to our group. We felt special having stayed there.
