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!

This is quite simply the most beautiful beach I've ever been to. My first trip to Achill this April and I'm Irish. It's an amazingly beautiful place. I can see why the Wild Atlantic Way is so popular now - what took so long!

This beach at the far end of Achill Island is really beautiful. We visited on a clear but windy spring morning and the views heading towards it were fantastic. It wasn't very busy and I imagine if you visit here on a sunny day the beach would be amazing.

Another fab beach to visit on Achill. Unreal scenery and the rocks and boulders on the beach really make it different. Definitely recommend a visit

Who on earth gives this a poor rating because they can't get a mobile signal!!!! The best beach on Achill Island with an absolutely stunning drive to get to it and glorious golden beach. The views are fantastic whether it be hot or cold but if you do get a hot day then there is no better place to be... More

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.
