Beautiful beach.. One of the loveliest in the world... Steep enough drive up to it but well worth it.. Public toilets available too

If you go to Mayo, a visit to this beach is a must, the drive up to it is brilliant, and just a great beach for everyone, water bloody freezing though, but hey, that's all in the fun! One person gave this beach a 'terrible' rating because there was no internet coverage on their mobile phone! How sad, they should... More

It was a rainy windy day when we visited Achill (Ack-ill) Island, so we didn't get to enjoy the beach but it was a beautiful place to stop and absorb the wonder of the ocean meeting the shore. It was wonderful to hear the waves washing over the beach, surrounded by high cliffs and brooding clouds. Atmospheric to say the... More

This visit onto Achill was a curiosity detour when travelling north on the Wild Atlantic Way ... turned out to be a great one. The road out across Achill Sound is of good quality and the views are simply stunning. The greenway cycle path mirrors your route .. albeit a little slower ... definitely one for the future.

This is the best beach on Achill- small but perfectly formed. After a short walk on the beach, climb up to the top of the cliffs for a spectacular view and further walking if you feel like it. Bring food and drink as there are (thankfully) very few facilities here, just a small van selling sweets and lemonade. Well worth... More

Drove all over the island today - misty and slight rain, but stunning scenery at Keem, Keel and all points in between. Watch out for the sheep on the windy roads!
