One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. the drive down seems a little hairaising - but evencoaches made it. We went on a September day but I am sure that in summer the beach would be irresistible.

great spot to forget about life's troubles for a while and just gaze upon the ocean. Peaceful beach, serene and clean. There was a food wagon there so you can get a nice hot cup of tea or coffee and a snack

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

30 years since my last visit and my memories were spot on with the breathtaking beauty of this beach..its so worth the drive over the Croaghan to catch a glimpse of the clearest water sparkling in the sun..a place that will capture your heart..
