Perched off the coast of marvellous County Mayo, once you cross the bridge from the Currane Peninsula, Achill Island extends a welcome like no other.
The island is renowned for its breathtaking Minaun and Craughaun cliffs, beautiful Blue Flag beaches and wonderfully diverse terrain.
Explore the pretty village of Dooagh – with its curious beach known for performing a disappearing act after stormy weather – and its surroundings on this gentle looped route.
Showcasing plenty of Achill’s dramatic scenery and inviting seascapes, this easy Dooagh walk crosses streams and sandy surfaces, skirts the banks of the Owenavalley and Tenregee rivers and traverses spongy bogland too.
- Keem Bay, a stunning Blue Flag beach nearby, boasts incredible views.
- From Keem Bay, climb up to Saddle Head and watch the Craughaun sea cliffs unfold, all 668 metres of them.
