The visitor center is a modern building with lovely views on Achill island and the bay from the windows. Downstairs you will find a wonderful introduction to the flora and fauna found in the National Park, but also to the region's cultural heritage. it is very interactive: for example, there is a soft rug to stand on that recreates the soft grounds in the bog. There are also buttons to press in order to listen to the sounds of wild animals found in the park, puzzles, and things to lift. We had a lovely lunch at the Cafe upstairs from which we could enjoy views on the mountains and the bay. Finally, there is a very easy trail (stroller-friendly) with lovely views on the area. A few panels give more information on the views or the plants alone the trail. Make sure to plan your visit so you can take the guided tour on the trail (once a day, it was at 2:30 pm the day we visited).

A great centre; the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable and the building itself is a lovely light filled space, whatever the weather. The centre sits next to a small hill with a walkway up to a plinth where there are some good photo opportunities. Their in-house cafe Ginger and Wild serves really good quality food, with many organic and gluten free options. The best quiche I have ever tasted, and the cakes alone are worth a visit!

Stopped here as part of our National parks touring. Did a quick walk on one of the trails around the info centre.
Lots of great hikes in the park if you are set up for it and had plenty of time. The info we got from the main counter was terrific. Bit of a display to look through.
Really lovely cafe upstairs called ginger and wild. Best carrot cake!
