Your home away from home, your relaxing retreat, your base for exploring and fun...
Hillside Cottage was renovated as self catering accomodation in October 2014. We have attempted to retain as much as possible the original features and character, while creating a modern, cosy, and relaxing home.
Hillside Cottage is a two bedroom house, sleeping up to six persons. It is most suited to maximum either 2 couples or for a family with up to four children and a baby.
Whatever your holiday - be it a romantic getaway, an active and adventurous exploration of the island, a quiet retreat, or fun-filled quality time with your family or friends - we aim to provide you with a comfortable and cosy home-away-from-home - a place to unwind and relax with all the conveniences you could wish for to make the most of your stay in Achill and the people you share that time with.
Hillside Cottage is located behind our own house in the village of Shraheens, just over one mile from Achill Sound. Shraheens is a quiet country road, with beautiful views of Currane mountain across the water on one side and of the low-lying hills which gave the area it's name on the other side: views easily enjoyed from this elevated site.
The cottage shares our driveway, but has it's own garden, patio and parking.
