"redheaney's Achill Island!" Castlebar by redheaney

Castlebar Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 37 photos

Sorry! Though I have been to Castlebar, I was a little disappointed to be unable to locate ACHILL ISLAND (which is about a 45 minute drive from C'bar) and that would be the main purpose of this page! It is an Irish treasure on the Western coast of Ireland, and a truly wonderful place to visit. There are activities abounding, for both the active traveller and the more laid back one... from fishing in the Atlantic (with local fishermen, who arrange trips for visitors)... windsailing & canoeing on the local lake... golf - on a very unique (somewhat different!)9-hole course... there is something quite special about playing a round of golf with sheep! There are spectacular views and magnificent scenery on Achill Island... beaches (for when the weather permits!) Excellent restaurants and a vivacious nightlife! Depending on the time of year that one visits, would determine how much is going on, with regards to the "nightlife." During peak seasons, there is an abundance of nightly entertainment - with live bands in most pubs and the nightclubs are in full swing practically every night of the week. And during the off-peak season, you might still find some pub-bands playing, though the clubs are still hopping, with locals still requiring their own entertainment!
