Have visited Keem bay on several occasions and I never get tired of the sheer beauty of the bay as I approach it from the cliff road. It is a real inspiration. The beach itself is great as a private beach as it never seems to be busy. On one of the visits the local fishermen were pushing out their... More

A stunning high cliff road sweeps into this beautiful alcove of a beach, surrounded by mountains on all sides. Easily one of the most spectacular beaches in Ireland. Palpable sense of remoteness, at the edge of the Atlantic, with no bungalows or businesses in sight.

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

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

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
