If you are trying to find Keem Beach it’s fairly straightforward – just get on the R319 from Mulrany and drive to the end of the road, literally.
Keem is at the very end of Achill island, tucked away in a lovely location at the foot of the surrounding mountains. In our view this is a much nicer beach and a better place to swim than its ‘big brother’ in Keel.
The beach itself is small but sheltered. There is a steep gradient into the water which is good for swimmers but be careful with children. The water itself is clear and inviting.
There is good carparking space and toilet facilities which were clean and well maintained when we visited.
Lifeguards are on duty in the summer and there are also a couple of picnic tables
Access to the beach from the car park is via a rough and steep path which is just about ok for buggies but not suitable for wheelchairs.
Keem is a really nice spot and in our view the nicest beach in Achill.
Blue Flag beach.
As above, get on the R 319 and don’t stop until you run out of road.
