Trip Planner : Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Mayo / Achill Island
Dramatic rocky cliffs, rolling green hills, and a meandering coastline buffeted by a wild ocean make a trip to Achill Island one of the best opportunities to snapping memorable photos of classic Irish landscapes. Connected to the mainland by a road bridge, the island--the largest off the coast of Ireland--has a remarkable history dating back to the arrival of Neolithic people as far back as 6,000 years ago. Today, an Achill Island holiday offers a chance to visit ruins of castles and abandoned villages once controlled by the mighty O'Malley clan, for centuries the island's protector from foreign invaders. Achill Island is in County Mayo. Customize your holiday with our Ireland day trip app to create an adventure that suits you.
