About the Aquarium

If you are looking for things to do in Achill then our aquarium should be at the top of your list as the Aquarium consists of 16 tanks exhibiting varieties of fish to be found in waters off Achill which is on the Wild Atlantic Way. We also house a selection of tropical fish from around the world. Our touch tanks allow you to get up close and personal with starfish, sea urchins or scallops.

We have Clown fish “Nemo” and Pacific Blue Tang “Dory” as well as “Hank” the Octopus. Our Piranhas and Lionfish are dangerous in the wild but beautiful to see up close.

Our history boards detail the history of the Shark Fishing industry in Achill during the 1950’s which during that time was one of the largest fisheries in the world
