Secluded beaches, indigo waters and sheep spotted hills; the Bay Coast weaves between Mayo and Galway in a bountiful display of Ireland’s inherent beauty. Drive across the road bridge to Keem Strand on Achill Island, with its towering sea-cliffs, exposed mountains and sweeping sandy beaches and stop off at Killary Harbour, which forms a natural border between Galway and Mayo, in the heart of Connemara. Ringed by mountains, the fjord is often speckled with dolphins.
There’s history and culture too: elegant Georgian Westport House; the stronghold of legendary pirate queen Grace O’Malley on Clare Island… and Connemara’s Derrigimlagh Bog – where the world's first transatlantic flight landed.
The bay coast has been waiting for you.
