    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

The property

Enveloped by the beautiful, wild landscapes of Achill Island, with enchanting, mountain views and in close proximity to the sea, is Kevin's House.

This modern, detached property offers the ideal getaway for families, a group of couples and friends looking to experience a fascinating part of Ireland, with its secluded coves and stunning landscape scenery.

You can wrap yourselves around the open fire in the front sitting room and catch up on your day, or you can use the second lounge off from the kitchen to relax, which boasts dual aspect windows and French doors to the garden, ideal for enjoying the outdoors all-year-round!

The fully equipped kitchen offers integrated units and a modern flair, with a breakfast island and dining area, so you can whip up something delicious and get everyone together for a family feast after a day exploring the island.

As well as the well-appointed family bathroom, the ground floor also boasts two double bedrooms for your choosing, one with its own en-suite shower room.

Climb the stairs to find a spacious double room with a cot for an infant and lovely Velux windows streaming in the natural light, offering rural views of the towering Slievemore, which is Irish for large mountain.

Next, you have a beautiful family room with a double and a single bed, again serving you the same fabulous vistas through the window.

Finally, another double with an en-suite shower room awaits your arrival, with a built-in wardrobe and matching bedside tables and lamps.

The enclosed garden surrounding the property offers a large lawned area to the rear for picnics beside awe-inspiring views, the perfect opportunity for a family photograph, while the front has a gravelled area and plenty of space for parking.

You won't be stuck for things to do on the island, with its Blue Flag beaches offering golden sands for sandcastle building and sunny strolls, many opportunities for watersports and fabulous walking country.

Travel further afield to the bustling town of Westport and see it come to life with traditional music, thriving pubs and bars and many restaurants catering for a variety of tastes.

Stay at Kevin's House and truly make the most of this enviable location and many attractions of the region.

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. Visit the Deserted Village at Slievemore, or the Tower at Kildavnet and discover some of Achill Island's history, or just over 30 miles away lies the town of Westport, on the mainland, ideal for a day out. A lovely island, with endless possibilities.
