The Old Beach Cottage, Dugort

'My friends and I immensely enjoyed our time at The Old Beach Cottage in Dugort. I actually don't think I can put into words how fantastic the location of the cottage is. I have never stayed in a better one - just steps from the beach, and at the foot of the imposing Slievemore Mountain. Before arriving, I wasn't sure which part of Achill we should stay in, but Dugort was absolutely perfect for us, and I would come back here every time. We climbed Slievemore Mountain on a sunny day and that felt like an amazing accomplishment. We cycled the Greenway on an even sunnier day - how lucky. We swam on the beautiful Dugort beach (in wetsuits) and we walked to Pure Magic for delicious pizza. We visited the church and The Cottage Cafe and the art gallery.  And then the Old Beach Cottage itself - Wow. It was like a magazine. What wonderful decorating taste.  All the beautiful little touches!!! We had a spectacular time, and hope to stay here again, or maybe in the Old Fishermans Cottage. Achill is wonderful, and this is the absolute ideal place to enjoy it from. Sabine was also lovely. Thank you so much for everything!'


'A most beautiful cottage that surpassed all our expectations'


'Photos just don't do it justice... this place is just truly amazing'


'What a beautiful escape by the sea ... '


'Well what can I say? From the moment I laid eyes on this gorgeous little cottage I knew I was in for a magical holiday... all I could dream of and more'


'A charming and quaint cottage.  It reminded us of the cottage where Cameron Diaz stayed in the film 'The Holiday''


'What an amazing location.  The cottage has a remote enough feel to give you the sense of getting away from it all but close enough to everything you might need on the island'


'I would advise anyone to book this a fabulous location, right at the beach and the views are just spectacular'


'This was exactly what we were looking for; an escape from stressful city living in the Wild West.  We did have rain on one of the days but this was actually our favourite day - curled up in front of the fire with books and hot whiskies listening to the wind and the rain outside.  Perfect!!!'


'The cottage was perfect and right on the beach.  We will definitely stay here again'


'Wow!!! I have stayed at various locations in Achill but for me this was the best by far'
