Island

Ireland 2019

Achill

Achill is the largest of Ireland's Islands and has been connected to the mainland by bridge, so we did not need to worry about ferry times, we just drove straight on to the island.

The Tower House at Kildavnet, known locally as Grace O’Malley’s Castle, is some 40ft (12m) in height and has three storeys.

When you arrive on Achill Island you will find yourself surrounded by stunning scenery, right on the westerly edge of Europe and bang in the middle of the Wild Atlantic Way

Sea Cliffs in Co. Mayo

Achill is the most mountainous island off Ireland.

I could just move in...

Achill has enjoyed continuous settlement over a 5,000 years period.

Interesting rock faces...

β€œBe like the cliff against which the waves continually break; but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it”.

Go visit Achill to discover more of the magical island...

    Love this! Would like to go explore Ireland with the lads but don’t do ferries (see @jordanfoy’s ferry story as we have a πŸ’― similar take on ferry travel! πŸ˜…) so it’s never happened. But the landscapes... πŸ™ŒπŸ»

    Yup I have had some horrific ferry rides but mostly it’s good and tranquil. I am going to tiree soon not looking forward to the long boat journey but I flew to Ireland - it was the quickest flight ever! Up and down 😊

    Yep, flying to Ireland is definitely the way to go! (Just wish I could fly with the lads - if I could we’d be exploring all over the place!) My last ferry ride to Ireland - the one where I said, NO MORE EVER - I felt so ill that I was lying on the floor. Richard was in seat, reading a paper or something, not understanding how I could feel so awful. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ So that was the end of me and ferries over the Irish Sea! Good luck with Tiree... hope you get a calm day...
