A stunning high cliff road sweeps into this beautiful alcove of a beach, surrounded by mountains on all sides. Easily one of the most spectacular beaches in Ireland. Palpable sense of remoteness, at the edge of the Atlantic, with no bungalows or businesses in sight.

But having said that, it would be a special place anyway, as t's beautiful, quiet, tranquil. Well, certainly was n September 2002 and this month of November 2016. We heartily recommend this place - but not when we're... More

Got to visit here for the first time and immediately fell in love with this place. It was late evening when I arrived with very few people here which probably helped. Do not miss this place.

The beach here is beautiful and I could imagine during the summer days it gets very crowded. It is located on Achill Island which is part of County Mayo you can drive to it easily. There are a few little abandoned structures on and around the actual beach which adds to its charm. I visited when there was a huge... More
