Interaction with guests
Hillside Cottage is located just behind our house, but you have a private driveway, parking and garden. We prefer to let you do your own thing, and you can access the cottage without even needing to meet us if you prefer... but we are more than happy to help and answer any questions if you need us.
Other things to note
For the comfort of future guests there is no smoking inside Hillside Cottage, nor are pets allowed inside. Unfortunately Hillside Cottage is not readily wheelchair accessible due to the nature of it's origins as a traditional Irish cottage. You can find our website for more information through the Achill Tourism site.
