About Achill Experience

Faoi Taithí Acla

Your Perfect Day starts here!

Achill Experience!

Who we are! Achill Experience is Mayo’s first and only aquarium. Where you will come face-to-face with all your favourite fish and sharks, that’s right sharks!

Our passionate tour-guides will engage you and your family of all ages during your 45-minute slot.

The ship-wreck tank is sure to ignite your senses!

Do you know where the phrase ‘daylight robbery’ and ‘Boycott’ come from? Make sure you check out our visitor centre to find out. This side is self-guided. Allowing you to spend as long as you like or as time allows.

What are you waiting for?! Book now! The only all-weather indoor adventure in Achill! (Not that it ever rains here of course!) Click below on the link to get started!
