Positive Reviews

Warm, friendly staff

The warm, friendly owner greets you at check-in and is there for you during the duration of your stay. She is knowledgeable about the city and is happy to point you in the direction of restaurants, bars, pubs and shopping as well as the most popular tourist destinations.

This is a non-smoking hotel

All of the guest rooms here are non-smoking which suits those who don't imbibe just fine. It's nice to know that you won't be accosted by the acrid smell of stale smell of stale, second hand smoke your room.

A great central location

Achill Guest House is centrally located which makes it easy to get around the city. The property is close to the bus and train stations as well as many of the area most popular local attractions and there are dozens of restaurants, bars and eclectic shops within a stone's throw of the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Things can get noisy

Because this B&B is located in the centre of Cork, things can get noisy, especially at night. If you're looking for a quiet stay, be sure to book a room at the rear of the property, as the side street is as noisy as the one that fronts the property.

Some rooms are smaller than others

Some of the guest rooms here are rather small which could be a problem if you need extra room to maneouvre, have a lot of luggage or are travelling with more than one person.

Parking is limited

Although Achill Guest House does offer free on-sire parking, the car park is rather small. This can mean you might have trouble parking, especially during peak season and on weekends, so be sure to make a car park reservation when you book.
