During the summer we took a trip to Achill Island and took the winding high clif road to Keem beach which is always worth it. It is like a tropical beach but in Ireland. When I showed people the pictures they actually taught we were in another country other then Ireland. Great hidden beach.

The drive down to this hidden cove is like looking down to a cove on a deserted island, it is just beautiful. On a good day it is just like driving into Earlie beach in Australia. Basking sharks still come into this bay when they are around and they used to provide a great bounty to the locals who used... More

This place is amazing. A must see when in Achill Island. This gem of a place is just hidden away. An amazing drive to it with views that would take your breath away. As a photographer I was just in awe of this place. At the bottom you have Keem Bay Adventures. The two guys who run this are amazing.... More

The drive to Keem Bay is an experience all to itself. A little scary, but very scenic. Must be experienced to bee appreciated. Wonderful little beach.

Having driven to achill we went in search of a nice beach! Whilst driving we saw a sign for a "Blue Flag Beach" and were delighted when we came across a sign post for the aforementioned! We drove for 5 kilometres before we saw a sign for the beach or Tra in Irish. What we saw was an inlet with... More

The drive down to Keem Strand is an experience in itself, the beach and azure water look more like they belong in the Med than the Atlantic. Simply stunning
