This white sandy beach sprawls between the slope of Croaghaun Mountain and Moyteoge Head while being set in a wonderful horseshoe-shaped bay. Located on the western edge of Achill Island, Keem beach is protected physically by the steep mountains on the left and right and metaphorically by St. Patrick’s blessing. If Irish legends are to be believed, when St. Patrick set his eyes on the gleaming beach at Keem, he prophesied that no one would ever drown in its waters. In the present times, the beach is made safe by lifeguards thereby making it an ideal place for swimming on a hot summer day.
