Achill Island, on Ireland’s wild Atlantic coast, boasts a 9-hole links course in a spectacular location on the sandybanks in Keel. This golf course is open to the public, with reasonable green fees and also a weekly rate available for holiday makers.
For family fun there is a crazy golf course next to the Chalet restaurant in Keel.
The village of Mulranny, 20km from Achill, offers another 9-hole links course in a magnificent coastal setting.
Indeed, Achill provides an excellent holiday location for a golfing break in the west of Ireland, offering easy access too to the 18-hole championship course at Westport and the highly-regarded 18-hole course at Carne, Belmullet, in north Mayo.
