Photographer's Note

Achill Island boasts some of the finest beaches in Ireland, including no fewer than five Blue Flag beaches. The Blue Flag scheme is an international standard for beaches and marinas and is assessed on an annual basis. The criteria for qualification include water quality, environmental education, environmental management, and safety and services.

In Ireland the Blue Flag scheme is administered by An Taisce, the national body for heritage and the environment.
his beautiful Blue Flag beach is nestled in the valley between the slopes of Croaghaun mountain and Moyteoge Head. Accessible via a cliff-top road (a drive not for the feint-hearted!), Keem Bay is a perfect horseshoe bay and its Atlantic waters are perfect for bathing on a hot summer's day.
