We all had a wonderful time in Achill, this is the second time that we have stayed in the cottages and we will be back again. The cottages are centrally located and have every amenity a young family might need, you do get comfortable very quickly and it just seems too short a time before your packing all your things up!. Stephen is very hospitable and the children always look forward to the jellies he gives them on departure.....and we do too!

I think firstly, I should acknowledge the super communication we had with our hosts, the Corrigan's, whom promptly emailed replies to questions or queries we had. Similarly, we were provided with contact details in the event, we ran into any problems making our way to Achill.
We booked for the half term week (UK) of 26-29 May. The directions we were given were excellent, we found our way to the cottages without any difficulty. We were warmly met on arrival and shown to our cottage. The cottage itself is modern, clean and had everything provided that we would need. Everything was explained to us and we were left with a very good idea of what to do and where to go on the Island. Our hosts lived not so far away (and not too near), so were always available.
With the Island measuring 15 miles wide and 10 miles long (at there most), you would think there wasn't much to do, wrong! The Island has 5 blue flag beaches, all very picturesque, very safe cycling routes, water sports, mountain climbing and horse riding to name a few.
As is customary in Ireland, there were many pubs and good happy people.
Definitely recommend it, though would prefer to keep it a secret.
Thank you to the Corrigans, we will no doubt see you again.

These cottages are in a great position to explore Achill.
There is everything you could need in them and couldn't really fault them as per the other reviews. When we return to Achill we will definitely be staying there again.
Thank you Stephen and Rosaleen for making our stay so enjoyable and we hope to see you again soon!
I spent 10 lovely days in achill cottages alone and with friends. The design of the cottage incorporates both the old and new worlds .. Bright spacious and traditional too. Kitchen an bathrooms were modern and immaculate and I had a wonderful memory foam mattress on my bed. The stream outside the double doors gurgled merrily along as one achill day slipped into another and I was sad to have to leave today.
