I was there at 8 am on a fine summer's morning. It was like something out of the Caribbean. Beautiful aqua-marine waters surrounded by sea cliffs on two sides. The drive back is certainly a memorable one and watch out for your first introduction to...More

This is a must if you go onto the island. Travelling up to the beach is quite an experience if you have a fear of heights!! But well worth persevering to reach a secluded haven where the only sounds are the wash of the waves...More

Few places like this are left as our Earth becomes more crowded. Many of the beautiful places are too remote to visit. While remote, Keem Bay is a place you can, and most certainly should, visit! Tucked away on the far side of Achill Island...More

It’s a beautiful place to visit! Stunning views and beautiful walks. We were delighted with the ocean and the mountains around us, but also with all the sheep just hanging around all over the place.
