We drove this coastline as recommended by friends and it is really gorgeous. Make sure you have time, we were a bit rushed, and to be honest I wish we were on a bicycle or motorbike the road and scenery were so great.

Our drive to and around Achill Island came highly recommended by our B and B hosts and we're so glad we took them up on it. During this drive you'll meander through mall villages, beautiful scenery and stunning seascapes. Be sure to drive all the way to the end of the island, get out of your car and walk the... More

It has been a few years since I was last in Achill and it still is magical place to visit. Hopefully next year the family will rent a house out there for a few weeks hols. It is very family friendly and a beautiful place to visit. I know my grandchildren will love it.

This drive is amazing to go on. Many stops to go to and experience some fantastic views. One thing you will definitely need is a map as I got lost on the far side of Achill and found it very difficult to get back off the Island, bt besides from that was very enjoyable and a great experience!

This drive was included in our tour, and whilst a pretty drive, not quite sure why it was included?? Couldn't see the purpose of driving through here. Would have preferred to have more time in Galway. This was something that I wouldn't have felt cheated by had it been missed.

We had a pre-arranged tour bus for our group, but I think one could also drive this if they want. Absolutely gorgeous country
