This is a little Jewell on Achill island. We recently visited this beach and were amazed by the natural Beauty and clear water. I believe it gets busy in the summer time but it's worth a visit.

We lov3d this beach. There is many holidays home for rent and the landscape is stunning. We will be back soon. And the people from Mayo are very friendly and helpful.

This beach is a must see when in Ireland let alone achill. It is simply beautiful. Take a climb up the hills if you are feeling energetic and it's not wet as it gets slippery. We happened upon a beautiful naming ceremony which we thought was a great idea. The water is calm and crystal clear

Well worth the mountainous drive to this lovely secluded beach. It's a lovely picture postcard moment. Very pretty indeed. However the cliff drive is not for the nervous driver. It's a narrow high road with many sheep who seem to have a death wish!

There were people paddling in the water, but I didn't see any brave souls actually swimming as it was in March and the water would have still been very cold I would imagine. The scenery is spectacular and there was a mobile... More

Beautiful views, clean beach, there was a vendor there that you can get snacks and hot/cold drinks. Great for walking and sea shell finding.

Beautiful, paradise-like beach surrounded by the hills and cliffs. We were truly spoilt by the weather and even though it was March, we felt like on exotic sun holidays. The views are breathtaking, the Bay seen from the way on the top Croaghaun will truly amaze you!
