The views are amazing good for a little hill climb and is not a part of the blue way so has snorkels run from keem beach which are fantastic the water may be cold but you will be pleasantly surprised with the fish you can see

We drove to Keem Bay not knowing what to expect and were just following the road signs. Unfortunately it was a day of heavy mist and rain, so the drive up the mountain was pretty scary as we couldn't see a thing(not even the road!). But wow, when we came down the other side, what a sight rewarded us for... More

Lovely beach with soft sand and water running off the mountain down onto the beach. Surrounded by hiking trails leading to breath-taking views.

Breathtakingly beautiful & no developments. Perfect! There are lifeguards at weekends in summer. Caution: water gets deep very quickly & only one narrow, steep road in & out!

Keem is at the western end of Achill Island, and is reached by a narrow and twisty road that offers stunning views of the Atlantic. A must see beach. A climb from the car park up to tall sea cliffs is for the athletic minded. Good climbing boots are necessary.

Nice beach, protected against the winds from the Atlantic, lots of wildlife (seals, dolphins) so bring your binoculars!

Blue flag beach and a blue beech taboot -- life is good when you arrive here... Not for the faint hearted as the drive there will give you minor strokes.
