Kite Surfing and Stand Up Paddling

If it’s Kitesurfing or Stand Up Paddling (SUP) you’re after then look no further than Pure Magic.  Francois and his fully qualified team will get you out on Keel Lake or one of Achill’s beaches where you’ll be up and away in no time! 

Achill Experience Aquarium and Visitor Centre

Experience island life both past and present at the Achill Experience.  Learn about the sea creatures in the waters of the island.

Diving and Snorkelling

Due to its temperate and unpolluted waters Achill is a great place for diving.  Achill Dive Centre offers PADI recognised courses for all abilities so why not take your first dive during your time here on the island or just head out to sea for an hour or two of snorkelling.  All equipment provided.

BoatTrips from The Pier

Boat trips from the little pier at Dugort to Croghaun, some of the highest sea cliffs in Europe! And best of all...its'd not unusual to be fined by a pod of dolphins.

Surfing, Kayaking, Coasteering

Nowhere on Achill is more than five minutes from the sea so its not surprising that this really is a great destination for watersports enthusiasts.  There are a handful of schools and adventure centres offering their own variety of activities including surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, bodyboarding and coasteering.  This is the place to get wet!


Achill is a really great place for cycling as the roads are quiet and predominantly flat, but if you fancy more of a challenge then try the ride up from Keem Bay!  Safety gear provided with all bikes.

Horse Riding and Pony Trekking

Based in Keel, Calveys Equestrian Centre offers horse riding and pony trekking for all abilities.  So whether you’re looking to canter across a long sandy beach or for a more gentle trek along the island’s quiet lanes this is the place to go. 


Gerard Mangan is a qualified Failte Ireland tour guide and offers walks to some of Achill’s more hidden spots like Annagh Bay and Croghaun
