Pure Magic is not a hotel, not a bnb, not a hostel nor a guesthouse... Pure Magic is just Pure Magic: a simple place, charming building where we welcome simply new friends who come and enjoy Achill. Food, Music, Watersports. Our rooms are various sizes with a unique theme which the room is named. The price is based per person and please see the kids policy to avoid any incorrect pricing. Our restaurant is now open 7 days a week from 5pm - 9pm. We are not a fully licence premises but we do have a selection of lovely beers & wines available.
