|Lying off the west coast of Mayo on the west of Ireland, Achill Island is Ireland's largest island. It has some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery in western Europe. 57 square miles in area, Achill Island boasts the highest sea cliffs in Europe and has been a haven for artists, archaeologists and historians for many generations.
With a mild and temperate climate this gem of the atlantic coast of Ireland has been a tourist location since the first bridge was constructed at Achill Sound, Achill Island, in the 1880s.
Achill Island boasts beaches to take your breath away, links golf courses, hotels, pubs, restaurants and outdoor activity centres. With traditional music and 'craic' (great times!) on hand, Achill Island offers complete relaxation for its visitors.
Call in to us at Achill at any time if you are travelling to Ireland. My Shop is located 300 metres from the bridge at Achill Sound, on the right hand side.
