  • Unreal views Breathtaking Lovely drive A great coastal drive for all the family Weather was fabulous 
  • Worth doing this drive from Mulranney to Achill. Stunning scenery. Lots of places to pull in and appreciate the beauty of the west of Ireland 
  • Very nice ballad in this island lost but very accessible by a small bridge. Great pictures to do!
