Just a village, and 150 residents are almost all of 2 families, which function as clans of another era. You can go and return from Westport in the day, dine in the unique pub attended by a very communicative native, and you find out of everything that happens on the island. Highly recommended.

  • A beautiful island to explore on foot and is still a hidden gem for the most part. The scenery from the lighthouse is breathtaking, with Achill Island, Croagh Patrick and the north Connemara shoreline all merging together into one sweeping vista.
