The Beehive Craft & Coffee Shop
In summertime, it seems that everyone in Achill is in The Beehive, Michael and Patricia Joyce’s bustling coffee shop, craft shop and restaurant. The Beehive is well-named, for this hive of activity never stops right through the day, starting with couples and groups and surfers who stroll in or drive to the shop for morning coffee and a good scone and jam. Then it's quickly on to family lunchtimes, with everyone surveying the blackboard to see what lovely things have been cooked for the day. Meantime, everyone grabs a chance to browse the shelves and find some nice crafts and smart surfy, outdoorsy clothes from the excellent selection. Michael and Patricia have steadily and surely expanded every aspect of their essential enterprise, and the laid-back vibe and the tasty cooking means the Beehive is a vital destination on Achill, and a don’t-miss! stop as you head northwards or southwards on the Wild Atlantic Way.
