Had a wonderful stay at Joyce's Guesthouse, the room was immaculate and well layed out. The host was very friendly and attentive. Tea & Coffee making facilities in a separate lounge area for guests. The breakfast was lovely with lots of extras.

We had an absolutely lovely 2-night stay at Joyce's Marian Villa this past week. Really wonderful, and truly the top notch of what I'd expect at a b&b - couldn't have asked for a better visit. Host - Anne was a lovely host and really made us feel welcome and at home. Anne was attentive and helpful suggesting must-see spots... More

With such warm hospitality, generous breakfasts and attention to every detail, Anne Joyce is the perfect hostess and would give any hotel a run for their money! Although not a big fan of B&Bs based on previous experiences, 3 nights in Ann's has changed my mind. She greets all her guests personally and shows them their room, talking through the... More

Nothing compares to the gentle warmth of this beautiful house. I have traveled a lot; staying at B&B's, guesthouses, hotels, hostels. Many are excellent. Joyce's was perfect. We had a long day of driving with some unexpected delays, so we didn't land on Anne until quite late. She was the perfect antidote to a long day - "You are most... More

We've just returned from a 3 night stay at Joyce's Marian Villa where I can say my previous conception of the B & B experience has been revolutionised. Everything was of the highest , most exacting standard - from the beautifully clean and aesthetically pleasing room with its sea view and spacious proportions to the self-indulgent breakfasts which can only...

I'd a lovely time in Joyce's. Amazing breakfast with delicious pouched eggs. Anne was a helpful host. Friendly staff. Very clean rooms. Get a room with a sea view. Achill is beautiful. Go to the deserted village. Lovely place called the Beehive café and Chalet for sea food.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June and it rained the whole time! This could have been awful but Ann made us so welcome and the accommodation is great. Our room was spacious with great views. We were able to watch huge waves breaking on the beach from the comfort of our room. Everything was spotlessly clean and the... More
