Many routes are also accessible via mountain bike, while horse riding is offered from numerous locations across gentler terrain.
The Wild Atlantic Way is a stunning road route to follow if you'd like a scenic drive with breathtaking views of the Irish coastline. It's hilly in places, so the route is ideal to do in a campervan or car, but taking it more slowly by bicycle is highly recommended. There are numerous viewpoints, great beaches and attractions to stop off and see along the way.
Guests still seeking adventure will find numerous points across Achill Island where they can enjoy water sports, such as kite surfing, canoeing, kayaking, and scuba diving. All these fun activities are on offer at several places across the island.

We found Keel Sandybanks Caravan Park very good. The facilities were of a high standard and very clean. The park is located very close to a lovely clean beach. beside the park is a lovely childrens play ground. The park is also very close to shops, restaurants, take aways and pubs. We would definitly go back to this caravan park again and will be recommending it to all our friends.

The sand banks is a great site for touring vans and tents.The beach is a two minute walk from the site and is a blue flag beach great for wind surfing,swimming ect.There are some good fishing areas close by both fresh and salt water and some good traditional music pubs just a few minutes walk. You can hire a mobile home on site but these are of a poor standard and need upgrading. a great place for kids with a fun fair next door.
