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.
