Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Simply stunning. A hair raising drive leads down to a gorgeous secluded beach. Sand golden, sea blue. Nothing to do except take on the peaceful atmosphere. Wonderful!

  • So many beautiful beaches in Achill island but Keem beach is probably the must ! secluded beach with white sand and torquoise water. In the summer, arrive before 9am, could be crazy busy.

  • View and beach spoiled by the house which is being renovated right in middle of the view.
  • Not as nice as Keel Beach if your in the area but worth going to both amazing views
