Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Mayo / Achill Island / Dooagh / Keem Bay
Escape the bustle of travel with a visit to Keem Bay, considered one of the most beautiful places in all of Ireland. Once the site of a basking shark fishery, the bay now serves as a great snorkeling spot with a Blue Flag beach--meaning it has met strict standards for water quality, safety, environmental education, and information. Historical and natural landmarks surround the bay itself, including an old British army lookout, a booley village (used in the summer to house young family members who bring their cattle to graze on the hillside), and Europe's highest cliffs in Croaghaun. There is little for food or drinks to purchase here, so consider bringing your own. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Keem Bay and many more Achill Island attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Achill Island trip maker site.

Absolutely beautiful beach, drive in is a experience as you the pleasure of admiring amazing views. Road is bit narrow so be careful and mind the people traffic around you. During summer there is a beach guard and some facilities available, truck food with something warm to ear. Definitely magnificent place and location.
Beautiful beach, golden sand and clear water surrounded by cliffs. Decent amount of parking. Public toilets available set back from beach up the hill.
