Achill Island, County Mayo

Ireland’s largest island, 22km long and 19km wide, is reached by a road bridge that can be raised for boats to pass through.

 

Achill offers the more intrepid visitor moorland, mountains, rugged cliffs and beautiful long beaches, and is a very popular spot for angling and water sports.

 

The Atlantic Coast Drive, a circular, signposted route from Achill Sound, by the bridge. The road goes to the island’s southern tip, then north around the rest of Achill. Between Dooega and Keel in the southwest, run the dramatic Minaun Cliffs and Cathedral Rocks. In the north is Slievemore, a mountain overlooking the village of Slievemore, which was abandoned during the Great Famine. Sharks can be spotted off Keem Bay in the west.
