“Worth a day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Even in November, with low cloud, mist and drizzle, this was an excellent way to spend a day. Scenery is stunning. Well worth it.

“views to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

One of the best drives in Europe. Try to approach by taking the road to the left quite soon after arriving on Achill - it's signposted. This gives better views of coastline. Pick a stormy day!

“Scenic drive along the Atlantic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great drive with dramatic cliffs. There is a bit of history including prehistoric ruins and the the O'Malley Castle and a few opportunities to dine along the way.

“Atlantic drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The atlantic drive was a lovely experience. The scenery was truly amazing. We ended our drive at Keem beach. Even though the weather was not the best it would be very hard to take away from the beauty of the surroundings
