If you fancy a break from Achill’s beaches then Lough Accorymore is an attractive alternative. Situated between Keel and Keem beaches, Accorymore, as the name suggests, is a corrie lake situated at the base of the cliffs which lead up to Croaghaun mountain.
The lake has a lovely, tranquil feel to it and is a soothing contrast to the nearby, usually busy beaches.
Like all lakes it needs to be treated with caution, so be extra careful getting in and out and watch out for submerged rocks.
This lake is located off the R 319 past the village of Keel and on the way to Keem strand. Before you get to Keem the lake is signposted to the right
