“Keel Strand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We loved going to Keel just to watch the surfers. WOW, some great ones..
For a quiet time, drive right along to the far end of Keel Strand and relax under the Minaun cliffs. Your only possible companions would be the sheep!

“Very Family Firendly”

Wind surfing, surfing, body boarding, etc, very good and safe Blue flag beach. We are frequent visitors to Achill Island and never miss the opportunity to walk this very clean and long stretching beach.

“:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

This beach is definitely worth a visit. When the sun is out, it's brilliant to dip your toes in and watch the surfers. It's a decent sandy beach near one of the busier parts of Achill, kids will love it.

“keel beach and Dookinella”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

No visit to Achill Island is complete without a visit to Keel Beach Whether you come to surf swim or just to sit and watch the waves you will not be disappointed. My favourite place is Dookinella.At the very end othis almost 3 mile long beach,right down under the magnificent cliffs of the Minaun Mountain you will find a place of peace and quiet,almost like a cathedral.I find it a place where you can sit quitely and hear your soul.Indeed further out along the cliff face are the Cathedral Rocks. only visible from a boat, There it is said ,if the wind is right,and you are attuned, you can hear the great symphonies of the wind and waves Truly a place of healing and peace.
