The tour around the island

Tour around the island

On Wednesday afternoon, we went on a two-hour guided tour around the island. We drove along the coastline on the so called Atlantic Drive and made a few stops on the way.
Among the things we saw was Keel Bay where we made a short stop to look at the beautiful scenery and took some photos. Then we continued to the Deserted Village of Slievemore and saw the ruins of the former houses next to the highest mountain on Achill Island. We also saw the house of Heinrich Böll, the famous German Nobel Price winner. On our way back we drove past one of the castles of Grace O’Malley, the great Pirate Queen who met Queen Elizabeth 1.
