“No 3G no Internet bad communications on Achill island”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

If you need to keep in touch, even occasionally, with your emails , business or private, holiday elsewhere. Even text messages can take many hours after being sent to arrive on your phone. There is no 3G, ( 4G now available on top of Mount Everest !) so no Internet access in Achill for the visitor . Even mobile phone coverage is at best dodgy.

“Beautiful - and we saw dolphins!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

A truly gorgeous little beach - certainly the prettiest on the island (so we thought). We were very lucky to have it to ourselves - the upside of a cold, blustery winters day! The highlight was to see dolphins swimming in the bay.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Well worth a visit. At the very end of the island road but lovely, secluded beach. We didn't have the chance to walk up to the cliffs but several people did. Out of season when we went but obviously a surfing beach at the right time.

“The new Ireland for all your outdoor needs”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We spent a week in July, camping in the caravan park beside the beach; the weather was fantastic (which helped add to the experience). The camp site was very well run, very clean, with great facilities including a games room for the kids and all the comforts of home when it comes to washing and drying etc. The facilities around, are all you want if you like the outdoors, beach for surfing and belly boarding or just plain swimming. The lake offers sailing, wind surfing or kayaking. The roads around are great for cycling and the road surface is generally good, roads are OK for kids to cycle on as long as they are with grownups. The hills are fantastic for walking with loads to see off the beaten track. You can drive around in the car to see more, but stop and enjoy the many views. The local shops are well stocked and the local bars and coffee shops, restaurants are good value.

Go by car to the west end of Achill Island. You will meet there a place like paradise. Exciting view from the car. Than you can go down by it, take some swim and enjoy time rhere.
