The ever changing sky and clouds above Slievemore Mountain viewed from Keel Strand.

 

No wonder the artist Paul Henry came on a weekend trip from Dublin, tore up his return ticket and stayed for many years painting Achill Island with all its features and moods. Keel is as good a spot as any to be inspired!

Keel Strand-Beach, Achill Island, Co. Mayo, Ireland

Keel, Achill Island, Co. Mayo, West of Ireland: Keel is a small village on Achill Island, County Mayo. It is famous for its 2 mile long strand-beach (Trawmore) which is good for particularly 'aerobic' swimming, surfing, sea canoeing and water kiting. The Beehive Crafts and Coffee Shop (left) serves up good refreshments. The scenery viewed from the beach is magnificent including the striking outline Menawn Cliffs below Minaun Mountain (3rd highest on Achill Island) and the 'fainter' Clare Island in Clew Bay to their right. Great picnic spot!

In the distance behind the beach is the tallest mountain on Achill Island, Slievemore (below, 672 m, 2205 ft high), which has a tendency to be cloudy on the top!
