  • "Excellent holiday."

    Lovely home from home. Was perfect for our extended family of 10 (6 adults - including grandparents, 4 kids and one cute dog). Would recommend this house and destination for a break from routine.

  • "We had an amazing stay at Kevin's House, Achill Island."

    Kevin and his parents (who look after the house) were lovely friendly helpful people. Nothing was too much trouble. We had booked for the 10th October until the 18th and my partner ended up with appendicitis, I rang Kevin to see if we could move dates instead of cancel and he was very understanding. We got to Achill Island on the 14th and were to stay one week, but we loved it that much and thankfully the availability was there we were able to extend our stay! The house is beautiful, very well kept and spotless. It is also fully equipped with all the appliances and facilities you need while on holiday. There is plenty of space for everyone and beautiful views out the back. Gorgeous place! There is numerous beaches within a short drive, Keel Beach is a beautiful big beach for a good walk and there is a childs play park beside it. My four year old Daughter loved it. Keen bay has some views on the way down to it, definitely worth a visit. We arrived just before the restrictions hit so everything was closed so we never got to any pubs or restaurants but we look forward to trying these on our next stay at Kevin's House. We cant wait to come back!!

  • "Our entire party of 10 had a fantastic holiday."

    The weather was beautiful so the mountain climbers could climb while the rest of us enjoyed the various beaches. I couldn’t say a negative thing about the house. It was perfect. We shall return!!

  • "On arrival we had a visitor who drove in straight to the back door , refused to tell me who he was and then physically pushed me aside and walked straight threw the kitchen to see who was in the house , turned out to be the owners father , he arrived Again unannounced when my Niece was alone in the house under the pretence of collecting rubbish and made her feel uncomfortable , he then told us to be out by 10 when check out is 10."

    30 , we felt we where being watched constantly which made it quite uncomfortable for all of us , this definitely needs to be dealt with as it’s unacceptable

  • "The house is fabulous and reasonably priced."

    There was so much space for 2 families it never felt cramped. The only slight issue we had was that there weren't enough kitchen utensils. But that was a such a small issue in a great house with a great garden. I would go again!

  • "The house is huge and is in a great location to explore Achill."

    The directions were spot on, the location is peaceful and there is a lovely 10 minute walk to the beach. Kevin was very helpful and friendly and keen to sort out any issues quickly. The dishwasher and washing machine and drier were a huge plus and the fire with turf supplied was brilliant for a very wet and windy “summer” break! If I can give some constructive feedback I would say that for a party of 11 there isn’t nearly enough cutlery or crockery and the pots and pans were not really up to standard and really need to be replaced. Finally the large upstairs bedroom has no blinds on the velux windows which is difficult with young kids

About the location


Westport 33 miles.

At 57 square miles, Achill is the largest island of Ireland, and lies off the west coast, in County Mayo. The island is linked to the mainland by the Michael Davitt Bridge, making it easily accessible. Boasting five Blue Flag beaches, Achill has some of the most beautiful, secluded, remote beaches in Ireland, but watersports are always easy to find. Try surfing, windsurfing, canoeing or kayaking on one of the beautiful beaches, enjoy a horse ride along the coast, or simply take a stroll through the sand. With its beautiful mountainous landscape, Achill Island provides great walking, and the Atlantic Drive, 40km of coastal scenery, is perfect for cars and bicycles alike.
