We stayed here over the weekend while we were taking part in Achill Quest and it was perfect I loved the house very clean and warm, not to mention the stunning location with the beach a few minutes walk from the house, the Owner was lovely and we enjoyed chatting with him, He gave great directions and met us at the house. I would highly recommend this lovely house we will be back for sure.
Thanks again from Niamh and Paul
Took my gorgeous girlfriend to achill island for her 50th and we loved it . . Ocean view cottage was lovely and overlooking the beach and mountains . Owner gave us directions over the phone and met us there very helpful . . Would come back again . Richard and Rebecca . . .
We were met on arrival by Val who gave a very thorough introduction to the cottage. The cottage itself was great, clean, tidy and fully stocked with all the possible amenities required.
The floor space is quite large, we had a toddler with us who enjoyed the open plan element to use while playing with his toys. The screen in the bedroom was quite useful also.
The location of the cottage was a perfect base for early morning walks on the beach and an easy walk across the strand to the pub in the evenings.
The only downside we had was not with the cottage but it seemed that the Island had all but closed down with shops, restaurants and coffee shops in the area mostly all closed for the season and bars not serving food. (2nd week of September).
We will for sure be back to Ocean View Cottage but perhaps in the summer next time!
Thanks to Val for being a good host and being thorough in all aspects with follow up phonecalls etc.
Loads to do in Achill! Absolutely perfect for walking, cycling, swimming...Ocean view is overlooking a beautiful beach and within easy walking distance of good venues for a meal and a drink. The Strand Bar and Pure Magic in one direction and Mastersons in the other direction.
The valley House is worth a visit and again is within walking distance or a short bike ride of Ocean View. The Valley House has an interesting history and a lot of character. We had a very relaxing beer in the courtyard on a beautiful sunny day, they serve food and there is a craft shop on site with local hand crafted gifts.
After a warm welcome the owner showed us the house. It is spacious and well furnished. The two floors are connected by an open staircase.
On our next visit in Achill Ocean View will be the location of our choice again.
