Achill Island, Co Mayo

Lashed by the wild Atlantic ocean Achill is one of Ireland's most spectacular and beautiful places as well as our largest offshore island. Connected to the mainland by bridge a visit to west is not complete without making a trip to Achill Island.

Achill Island features sheer cliffs, soaring hills and mountains, secluded lakes and remotes beaches with five of these beaches holding Blue Flag status. This unique landscape is ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities including surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and scuba diving to hillwalking, fishing, golf and many more.

A visit to Achill can be as active, or as relaxed, as you choose. Achill offers over a dozen quality restaurants with fresh Atlantic seafood a speciality - and its pubs and bars provide a traditional Irish welcome.

After a busy yet relaxed day at the Mills stay or visit The Harlequin Hotel in Castlebar.
