  • "We Ioved our week at Kevin’s beautiful house."

    Incredibly spacious, and, as we were in the main a slightly older family group, having a bathroom each was a real bonus. Kevin was an amazing host who responded immediately to any queries or minor issues we had. We spent the week walking & swimming and catching up with family over delicious food ( and a few drinks !!) Thank you Kevin for a fantastic stay

  • "Kevin's House was a very spacious and comfortable holiday home with lovely views."

    It had everything we needed and it was just a short walk to the sea and an even shorter walk to the track through the lovely quiet and beautiful Irish boglands. Great for walking the dog. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Siblings from Ireland, America and Australia came together in Kevin’s house and couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The view was outstanding and facilities awesome. Kitchen was super. Thanks for making our holiday a memory to treasure.

  • "In a very stormy week, this house was all you would want, mainly being always warm!"

    Some great lanes around the house for walking the dog and the scenery of course is terrific. We intend to return.

  • "This house was perfect for us and our dog, if a little large for just the two of us."

    Wonderfully situated to explore Achill and close to beaches for dog walks. Incredibly well equipped, great instructions and an attentative host available on the phone. We really enjoyed our week and will be back in the future. Thanks Kevin.

  • "Really lovely house in gorgeous location."

    The owner was very friendly and helpful. We felt that the listing description could have been a little more accurate though as there was no mention of the quite deep ditch running the whole length of the one side of the garden which was an issue for our very small dog and a hazzard for young children. There was also no mention of excessive energy usage or rubbish left being charged for - although this wasn't a problem for us. We were also surprised to read on arrival that dogs had to be kept in the utility room overnight or in crates - not detailed before hand but we had a crate anyway. Having said that - we really enjoyed our stay and would rebook the same house if we stayed in that area again

    There is not a point I could take from it. Spotless, lovely area and Kevin is lovely to deal with. Got list finding house , our fault, and Kevin was at the end of the phone to help us. House is spacious, comfortable and a lovely quiet area. We will be back again. Don't forget to try the Diner takeaway before you leave.

    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!!

    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 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

  • "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!

ACHILL ISLAND, COUNTY MAYO

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.
