Due to COVID-19 restrictions The Achill Experience has been reduced to Aquarium only on a pre-booked 45 minute slot basis. These timeslots must be pre-booked online in advance.
Come to the Achill Experience, immerse yourself in our history, learn about the deserted village, see our rebuilt “Boley House” of times past, touch and feel the displays and understand how people lived.
Visit our Aquarium, the first in Mayo stocked to the brim with fish native to our waters, understand the fishing traditions and seasons. For those following Nemo and friends we have some special treats, our Tropical and Amazonian tanks will let your mind run wild.
Achill is steeped in history, wander the corridors and read the snapshots of Achill’s past that we have produced in a range of display boards telling the stories of religion, emigration, employment, hard times and good times.
We are proud of our artists in Achill – read about Paul Henry, Robert Henri, Heinrich Boll & Graham Greene among others on our tablets and our walls, indeed rent an offline tablet and let It take you on a guided tour of our parish using the map of Achill as you route planner.
The Achill Experience has so much to offer – just come and enjoy it!
Wheelchair accessible. Credit cards accepted.
