After taking in the beautiful views along the winding cliff edge drive towards this beach as you turn the last bend to see this wonderous sight unfold onfront of you it is difficult to believe keem beach has been kept hidden for so many years.It is one of Irelands only untouched beaches there are no houses nearby only mountain and cliff edge clear water and clean sandy beach i will be bringing my kids here for many years to come

“fantastic beach - a real hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

On a clear day this must be one of Ireland's best journeys to a beach. There are great views. The beach is clean, the toilets clean but a bit of a walk from the beach. There is a lifeguard service and great climbs all around for the energetic. Bring a picnic - there is a candy van but he's expensive.

“You must go there!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

We were staying on Achill island for our holiday. Visited keem beach twice. Words cannot describe how stunningly beautiful this place is. Most photographs don't do it justice either. The views from the beach on a clear day are just breathtaking. The road to the beach is great fun but not for nervous drivers. Only downside is that you need to bring everything as there are no shops etc, but this is only a tiny problem compared to the experience of going there. GO GO GO!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

The views are amazing good for a little hill climb and is not a part of the blue way so has snorkels run from keem beach which are fantastic the water may be cold but you will be pleasantly surprised with the fish you can see

“Absolutely stunning”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We drove to Keem Bay not knowing what to expect and were just following the road signs.
Unfortunately it was a day of heavy mist and rain, so the drive up the mountain was pretty scary as we couldn't see a thing(not even the road!).
But wow, when we came down the other side, what a sight rewarded us for our perseverance!
Absolutely stunning beach, even on a rainy day.
