    Take it you have all been to the "niteclub" The Achill Head.

    The beaches are great spots for beach combing for women during the summer.

    Absolutely not - away from all the pollution, traffic jams, etc. Lovely beaches, great scenery, mountains, etc ... it's a different pace of life to what we're used to but I don't pity them .. well except maybe in winter ;)

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,994 Redhairedguy


    Me, my cousin and my friend, cycled to Achill from gaway.

    We camped out for three nights on the beach, and got quite drunk.

    oh... and we went surfing too.... Always with the surfing

    I've been to Achill three times.The first two times, I hated it.

    But it kind of grew on me like some kind of infectious disease. Now, I love the place and have fond memories.... of the bumper cars!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,861 ✭✭✭ irishgeo


    ahh the bumper cars. Havent been on them in ages. Might see if they are around in the summer.

    Tell me about it!

    Also, don't forget the massive spinning wheel thing, (what the Hell are they called anyway?) with the weird strange man who loves to hear children scream! (shudder)

    Achill is such a fab place - fantastic beaches and some A1 scenery.

    There is a pub there called Lynotts... between villages of Cashel and Bunacurry - it is tiny, very old trad features - and the Guinness is absolutely yummy there!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,861 ✭✭✭ irishgeo


    Lynotts - no tv , 20 people would fill the plac and the guinness is good because the barrell is underneath the bar. No big long pipes for it to travel through or sit as the case may be.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,677 ✭✭✭ BrookieD


    Yep Achill is the best, I have been going there maybe 10 times a year for the last 6/7 years, Inlaws are there in Keel village and dooega, infact i am going again tomorrow for the long weekend till tuesday and will be taking more photographs. must say if you know Achill then The Pub at Dooega is the best great drink all the time.

    Achill is also very nice in the Winter, I am there most New Years and could not have a better time anywhere else, very freindly people :D

    Achill is savage on the August bank holiday weekend, travelled up from the city (Castlebar!!!) last year. Decided to go for a little walk bout half six in the morning to go the shop (which definately wouldn't have been open!) and next thing I know it's about 3 and a half hours later and im still walking, about 12 miles down the road, past Polranny!!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 517 hacktavist

    HA! I'd hardly consider it a city!
