Newport & Achill
Visit Newport & Achill
Achill Island and the Currane Peninsula, on the west coast of Co Mayo, are among the most remote and scenic areas in Ireland. Some of the local roads that follow the coastline of Achill, and which boast some of the most spectacular views of the area, have been designated ‘The Atlantic Drive’.
With its Atlantic location, five Blue Flag beaches and breathtaking mountain landscape, Achill is the perfect spot for outdoor activities of all types, including hill-walking, cycling, surfing, windsurfing and sea kayaking.
