Achill Island

Linked to the Corraun peninsula by a bridge, Achill Island is depicted by a splendid mixture of stunning beaches, such as Trawmore Strand and Keem Strand and spectacular rock formations culminating in Slievemore (670m/2,200ft) and the Croaghaun (666m/2,190ft). Once poor and isolated, it depended on money sent back by emigrants. Today, tourism is its main source of income and surfing, sailing and sea fishing attract many summer visitors.
