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.
