“Magnificent!”
Review of Keem Bay

Reviewed 10 January 2018

We drove to Keem Bay and then ascended the headland to the little stone hut on top for majestic views. Heading roughly north along the sea cliffs we followed the sheep tracks occasionally peering over the vertiginous sea cliffs to the ocean below until we were reached Achill headland. All the while Slieve Croaghan was peering down at us. A high peat bog was below in the shoulder between us and Croaghan and the coastline stretched north and south out of sight. Clare Island had a continuous wave of cloud washing over her and the far peaks a dusting of recent snow. We felt humbled by the experience.

Came across this gem by accident as we had just gone for a drive. It's the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Found it on a lovely bright sunny day and the water was crystal clear. Would definitely recommend a visit and bring swimsuit.

Keep bay is a beautiful beach set in a cove on the outermost reach of Achill Island. Quite often dolphin & seal can be seen near to the beach. Summer or winter it's a beautiful place to visit. Safe swimming & with spring water trickling down from the mountains the children have a ball. Not to be missed.

Bringing my wife and 4 young children on 4.5 hrs journey to get to Achill it was worth it alone to see Keem Bay.

If there was nice coffee shop it would be a gold mine but definitely worth this visit and children thrilled to see the seals.

One of the most beautiful spots we have in Ireland.

A beautiful place ... My wife and I visited on November 1st ... Such views and countryside. Definitely worth the journey from Westport (where we were spending a three day break) ... The entire island is in fact a wonderful place to experience!
