Nestled between Dugort hill and Slievemore mountain this picturesque Park is situated in a sheltered and scenic part of Achill on the North side of the Island. We cater for touring caravans, camper vans, tents, rental and private mobile homes.

Established in 1968, Seal Caves extends to over 7.5 acres with mature hedgerows and trees throughout. The Park stretches up Dugort hill with varying levels and offers panoramic sea views of Dugort Beach and Blacksod Bay. It is located along the Wild Atlantic Way and set in one of the most attractive and unspoilt areas of the West of Ireland. It is a well placed touring centre for all parts of Achill and West Mayo.

Sandy banks and soft sand dunes lead down from the Park to Dugort Blueflag Beach. The Beach is nearly 1 mile long of clear silver sand and is pleasant to play and bathe on. Sea fishing is possible from the rocks near the beach and at the pier nearby. A Blueway kayak trail is located directly on the beach where you can paddle from Dugort Beach along the trail to the Golden Strand Beach past the seal caves and bird colonies. Boat trips run regularly from the pier to the seal caves, Innishkea Island and Croaghaun Cliffs. Slievemore mountain has beautiful walks and is rich in history. The Achill Mission or the ‘Colony’, Megalithic tombs, the Deserted Village and Heinrich Böll’s Cottage are all located on or adjacent to Slievemore mountain.

Seal Caves is located on the Greenway and on the National Cycle Network. Other places of beauty and interest on the island which are within easy reach of the park include – the aquarium, Martello tower, Keem Bay, Minaun Heights, Atlantic Drive and Kildavnet Castle. The deep clear water that surrounds the island makes it an ideal spot for angling and deep sea diving. Ballycroy National Park is a 30 minute scenic drive from Achill.

We hope you will try a holiday at Seal Caves, every effort will be made to make your stay an enjoyable and carefree one!
