“A day well spent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We headed to Achill Island for a self drive and it turned out to be one of our favorite days. We started by stopping for lunch at Ostan Oilean Acla right before the bridge. A very nice restaurant with lots of character. The island itself is beautiful and we drove all the way to the coast. A little narrow road at the end, but what else is Ireland? If you enjoy scenic drives, add this one to your list.

“Achill Island Walk - The Deserted Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I did a walk through The Deserted Village with a group, Gerard was our tour guide. We were offered two options for the track and informed about the condition of the walking path. It is recommended to wear waterproofs and carry raingear with you. Gerard was a welcoming and extremly knowledgeable guide, we stopped at several points in the tour for listening about the history of the place and slowly everything merged together and we got an idea about the "bigger picture" of the processes that happened at that place. I personally found especially his attitude of showing more than one perspective in his explanations about historical events in Achill good.
I would totally recommend this tour!
