Achill Tourism Launches Xplore Achill app

The Annual General Meeting of Achill Tourism on 19th April was the official launch night of the Xplore Achill app, a new interactive guide to Achill Island and the Curraun Peninsula.

Available via Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, the app is part of the Xplore Local platform which has brought benefits to multiple towns in Munster as well other areas such as Castlerea and Galway. Xplore Achill is the first location in Mayo to feature on this platform.

The Xplore Achill app has been made possible thanks to the support of a number of groups and individuals, principally First Choice Credit Union, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Cllr. Paul McNamara, and Failte Ireland. Representatives from these sponsors were very welcome guests at the launch.

To download and install the app, visit your preferred app store (Google Play or Apple App Store) and search for ‘Xplore Local’. Download and install the app, then select ‘Achill’ as your default town. The app is also available to view on the web – see
