Bervie Guesthouse, Achill Island
Bervie guesthouse is a wonderfully restored coastguard station on Achill Island, off the west coast of Ireland in the County of Mayo. It is situated on the south-facing beach at Keel Strand, and has stunning unbroken views across kilometers of unpolluted golden sand, overlooking the majestic Cathedral Cliffs of Minaun, with the islands of Clew bay on the horizon.
John and Elizabeth carry on the tradition of great warmth and hospitality established by generations of the Gallagher and Barrett families on Achill. Many of their returning Irish and international visitors are the children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren of guests who first enjoyed the Bervie in the early part of the last century.
