This pretty B&B, hard by the road as you come into Mulranny, en route to Achill, has always been a landmark in the village, serving in times past as the Garda Station, the Post Office, and then a home-from-home for traveling guests. And now, in the super-professional hands of Sarah and Nicolas, it is once more a landmark for travelers along the Wild Atlantic Way. The view from the rooms, out across Mulranny Beach and Clew Bay and towards Croagh Patrick, are jaw-dropping: an immensity of blue, white sand, and rugged hills. At night time, in this dark sky region, the skies appear particularly immense and magisterial. You could sit in a chair and watch the tides and he stars and do nothing else and it would b an unforgettable experience. Nick and Sarah take care of everything for guests, with excellent breakfasts that feature Achill smoked salmon and Kelly’s superb pork products and, if you are biking the Western Greenway – and, of course, you are biking the Greenway – then you can order a super picnic to take along for the ride. Mulranny House is hard to beat as a destination for exploring the northern part of the WAW, with Achill Island, Ceide Fields and Westport all on your doorstep. In fact, Mulranny House, is hard to beat, full stop.
