“Further away and worth it”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We went to see the penal alter (which is up the hill past the toilets, near the white house) but decided to come back. Stunning clear blue water, warmer than most due to the seclusion. Fewer waves than Keel, less jellyfish than on the north side of the island. I went snorkeling, saw crab, lots of fish, starfish, etc. The rest of the family swam and enjoyed the (rare) Irish sun!

“Scary road, fantastic beach”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Nice unspoilt beach - bring your own lunch! Beach is clean, car park quite small, can imagine on a hot day it may fill up quite fast. Scenery is amazing!

“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!
