Hidden gem
Achill Heritage Centre is located in Bunnacurry, County Mayo. It is a living history timepiece, displaying old photographs, memorabilia, historical documents and artefacts that span over 200 years of island life.

The Achill Heritage Centre in the heart of Achill Island can transport you into the early 1800s. The interpretive visitor centre tells the history of the island and the story of the people who lived here.

Learn how the bogland of Achill was turned into arable land to sustain life on a hostile barren island that once was dense with trees and where eagles soared. See how it was transformed over the past 200 years and how outside influence slowly changed the way people lived and farmed.

The Achill Heritage Centre provide a comprehensive genealogy service from an extensive database of records. They also offer guided walking tours of the Slievemore Deserted Village and the Monastery at Bunncacurry.
