The Valley House Hostel & Bar Reviews


The Valley House is a house full of character, atmosphere and history. A place where you can completely relax and take a break from the world. Take a walk in our grounds - through the woods or down to the lakeside. Or head out to the beautiful Golden Strand blue flag beach 10 minutes walk away. Play a round of Pitch & Putt and enjoy the magnificent scenery of Blacksod Bay to the north and the Nephin Mountain range to the east. Achill Island can provide you with many outdoor activities or you can just take it easy - it's your choice! Either way, come back to a warm welcome and comfortable accommodation at The Valley House. Have a drink by the fire in our own fully-licensed public bar. Play a game of pool or darts and join in a music session - everyone is welcome and encouraged to take part. We hope to see you soon in The Valley!
