  • "We loved our stay at Purteen!"

    The house is spotlessly clean with high quality fittings and furniture. Lovely views from every window and a seating area outside too to enjoy the views from. Lots of room in the house to either get together as a group or to find a quiet spot for some peace. Our kids especially liked the upstairs room with tv to chill out. It's a 2 minute drive down to Keel from the house (or 10 -15 minute walk) where there are cafes/restaurants, a couple of pubs, a lovely beach and a well stocked little supermarket. And about 10 minutes drive from the gorgeous Keem beach which we were lucky enough to visit on a sunny day - stunning! The Achill Aquarium is just up the road also and well worth a visit. The house owners were lovely and made us feel really welcome. It was easy to contact them for any info as needed during our stay. A fabulous house and area and we look forward to staying there again!
