Beautiful bay views and basking sharks
Along your way to Keem Bay, stop for a hearty meal at Gielty’s Bar and Restaurant. As the road twists and turns, Croaghaun mountain comes into view, painting a clear picture of just why Keem Bay is known as one of the most picturesque and tranquil coves in Ireland. Look closely and you might be lucky enough to spot basking sharks in the shallows…
Last seen in 1984, Dooagh beach reemerged from its watery slumber in April 2017, after a stormy ocean blessed the bay with golden sands. In July of each year, Achill celebrates its rich heritage and seafood splendour with Féile na Mara (The Festival of the Sea). The Gourmet Greenway food trail culminates here in Achill, celebrating artisan food producers throughout the Great Western Greenway.
