A beautiful breathtaking area. A wonderful beach tucked away in a cove, surrounded by superb mountains. You are exposed to amazing views with constantly changing colours and so peaceful!

The last time I was in Keem the sun shone bright and it was the most stunning beach. People say when the sun shines you feel like you could be anywhere in the world on this beach but I disagree. Just look around, how green the land is, the windy Irish road descending on the beach, the sheep you dodged... More

It has to be one the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is a must see if you are on the west Coast.

This is a beautiful little beach with a stunning and kinda scary drive to get to it. When the sun shines you could be in any of the exotic beaches in the world. Fine, pale sand that continues out into the sea. If you go to the west of Ireland and have the time, the view onto the beach is... More

Keem bay is a must visit if you are in the Achill Island area. It is not just a beautiful, sheltered beach, but great snorkelling area and sensational walks on the hills surrounding the bay. Highly recommended.

It was a beautiful (albeit crazy) drive, and well worth it to see just how beautiful this area is! Definitely coming back again!

Keem beach is well worth the trip up over the mountain to the end of the road. You are greeted by a stunning yellow sand beach with stunning views out over Clew bay. It was almost deserted when we were there and we got to enjoy the beach and scenery to ourselves. There is a stream flowing in through the... More
