Absolutely a breathtaking journey to the beach and the surrounding area is top class. There's a little tea and chipper van there with a few picnic tables for just to sit back and take it all in

We drove the length of the island. So worth the trip. The cliffs are beautiful. The Keel beach is very large and offers a great view of the cliffs. We drove to the end of the highway and walked out to the cliffs. Awesome views.

Keem really is a gem of a beach ! The water is gin clear and well sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds. Do not be scared to have a dip. It feels freezing at first, but splash yourself all over and you soon become comfortable...More

Good start point to explore the cliffs! Nice hilly walk (about 3 hrs) around the coast (heads) and back under the mountain or through the valley. Really nice beach too, water super clean.

This is a beautiful little cove on Achill Island. The drive there is stunning. The water is cold but it's Ireland, not Italy. The kids put on their wetsuits and didn't care!

Beautiful drive to keem beach. Spectacular beach on the western part of the island. One of the highlights of the wild Atlantic way.

We had only a day trip to enjoy Achill Island, and our final stop was Keem Bay, literally at the end of the narrow, cliffside road. Spectacular views, nice sand beach, and protected bay for swimming and kayaking. Lots of families on a weekday, and...More
