“Very Weel Kept Beach”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

The beach is wonderful. Its near shops and hotels. There is a caravan park on site. The are also many surfing/kayak groups parked on the beach offering lessons.

The beach itself is in wonderful condition. Well worth a visit.

“Very nice scenery, but away from it all”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

After biking, we felt energized enough to drive out to Achill Island, the most western point of County Mayo. During the summer it’s filled with vacationers who rent cottages and play on the wide, sandy beach. After “summer season” at the end of August, the island is a desolate place but still has great views of the ocean. Keel beach area was wide and sandy and windy and cool in September, but loved the scenery, almost by ourselves

“Lovely”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

The starkness of the beach is awesome. Getting there is a treat on the high, narrow, sheep crowded road! It was very rainy and windy when we were there so we didn't get to play much but even then it was a wonderful sight.

“Breathtaking scenery”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

From the moment I arrived on Achill Island I fell in love. The scenery is magnificent and varies from different areas of the island from long sandy beaches to high mountain cliffs.
