If you thought Ireland was a slow paced, laid back and sparsley populated place then western Ireland is even more so, and then some. But for those seeking solitude and adventure in their surf trips with the edge of wilderness and ruggedness then this is the place. You can also get across to Achill Island from here by bridge. Achill Island is Irelands biggest offshore island, there're a few places to stay there and surf breaks at Keel, Dooagh and Doogort.
