Achill Island is Ireland’s largest island and it is accessible from the mainland by bridge. The island represents the west coast in miniature form: majestic mountains, clear lakes, expanses of bogs, long unspoilt sandy beaches, picturesque villages and the highest sea cliffs of Ireland. The Atlantic Dive, boasting some of the most impressive views of the Atlantic, goes along the south west coast of Achill. This coast road along the cliff edge has fantastic views of Clew Bay. On Achill’s west side lies the secluded Keem beach, a sight to behold coming down the cliff-top road.


One of the most impressive stretches of coastline along the Wild Atlantic Way is just a stone’s throw from Downpatrick Head. Dún Briste, the lone sea stack, 50 metres high, stands bravely in the roaring Atlantic. A wonderful sight. Between Downpatrick and Benwee Head you will discover many more awe-inspiring cliffs, some over 100 metres high
