Surrounded by the sea and swimming fish at high tide, the elegant and unique rooms at Bleanaskill Lodge boast stunning, panoramic views. The lodge is home to the tranquil, 3-acre retreat of Achill Secret Garden. Individual touches such as private garden entrance, a four-poster bed, or a wall packed with old books can be found in each room at Bleanaskill. You can relax in the super king-size bed, or enjoy the views from a comfy chair overlooking the window. Surrounding the lodge, the Secret Garden has been tended since 1875, and features a number of trees planted from that time. The garden is divided into separate sections, with a pretty water lily pond, a herb and vegetable garden, and 3 different flower borders throughout. Guests benefit from free entrance to the garden. The village of Achill Sound is 2 miles away, with its shops, pubs, and modern amenities. You can cycle or walk through the scenic, surrounding landscape, or take a ferry to Clare Island from Cloghmore, less than 5 minutes’ drive away. An extensive breakfast menu can be chosen from, and guests can make use of special offers at a local restaurant for evening meals. The spectacular Greenway ends in Achill just 2.5 miles from the B&B at the Atlantic Drive on the way to Cloughmore. Bicycles can be stored in the garage during the night.
