Achill Island is located in the west of Ireland and connected to the mainland by a bridge at Achill Sound. Our closest airport is Ireland West Airport Knock, a 90 minute drive away. The airport offers convenient and low cost flights from many destinations within the UK and Europe. Aer Lingus and Ryanair currently offer flights from as little as £50 return.
Alternatively there are regular ferry crossings from the UK with the high speed service taking just 2 hours and the conventional crossing of 3.5 hours. It's a very pleasant 4 hour drive to Achill from Dublin.
