The beach itself is beautiful and you'd mistake it in pictures for somewhere in the med! We climbed to the top of the croaghaun mountain that overlooks the beach & definitely weren't disappointed! Worth the climb for sure.

Keem Bay on Achill Island takes perseverance to find. It is at the end of a long dead end road that unhelpfully is not marked as a cul de sac. In addition, you have to drive along a narrow steep bendy road that has nothing to stop you steering over the edge of a huge drop into the Atlantic Ocean.... More

Words can't do justice to Keem Bay, but photos come close. Absolutely beautiful beach and a must-see if you're on Achill Island.

For a nice day of beautiful scenery and lovely clear water this is the spot. The beach is clean and to just sit there and relax was fantastic

It is so worth the meandering drive - it is like a haven at the end of the west. Absolutely stunning as you drive down the circuitous route to excellent facilities. There are very vigilant lifeguards who leave absolutely nothing to chance. It has silky soft sand with little streamlets running into the sea. It is a very sheltered beach... More

This is well worth the journey.Visited there while on holiday in Achill. If the weather is fine it is amazing. Would loved to have had the chance to swim in it but weather too cold. We did climb the hills behind it to croaghaun cliffs which are breathtaking and I would recommend this although its a tough climb you will... More

We toured out to Achill Iskand for the day and a friendly local advised us to "just keep driving" and we would find Keem. Abc what a find - great beach with great surroundings. Unspoiled!

I've lost count how many times I've been to Keem. I was introduced to it before moving to Ireland three years ago, and it's still my very favourite place in the West. My partner and I plan to marry there; logistics will not be easy, as the narrow road leading to it (a sort of sheep-avoidance obstacle course) hugs the... More
