If you're in Achill, make sure you get to Keem. It's stunning rain or sunshine. It's not to be missed

My wife and I came here just over fourteen years, shortly after we became engaged. So it's a special place for us! But having said that, it would be a special place anyway, as t's beautiful, quiet, tranquil. Well, certainly was n September 2002 and this month of November 2016. We heartily recommend this place - but not when we're... More

Got to visit here for the first time and immediately fell in love with this place. It was late evening when I arrived with very few people here which probably helped. Do not miss this place.

Keem Bay is very beautiful. It is a small bay with a beautiful beach. What is even better is the drive to the Bay along the high cliffs. We were visiting Achill Island for the 2nd time in 5 years but this time we brought along 4 family members. It is well worth your while to check out this beautiful... More

The beach here is beautiful and I could imagine during the summer days it gets very crowded. It is located on Achill Island which is part of County Mayo you can drive to it easily. There are a few little abandoned structures on and around the actual beach which adds to its charm. I visited when there was a huge... More

This is a pretty little bay with a nice sandy beach at the end of the island. It has a bit of history too, as there was a basking shark fishery here in the first half of the last century. There are some information boards that tell the interesting history.

Keem beach is amazingly beautiful, as is the rest of Achill. The walk up to Moyteog Head is well worth the effort. Steep at first, it isn't too bad overall, and you can take a less steep approach too. Then walk over to the highest peak of Achill Head....just gorgeous. I highly recomend this trip to the edge of the... More

Went there on a windy day in October but the sun shone and it was so clean with light white sand. It was a really beautiful place with a beach as good as any you would find in any corner of the world. surfers were riding the waves some being dragged, skimming over the blue sea by large kites.

Keem beach is stunning. In the car park there is a van selling fresh waffles and boxty - traditional Irish potato cakes. Delicious hot and buttery after a walk on the beach.
