About the Aquarium

Maidir leis an Uisceadán

Get up close to the animals that call the waters off Achill their home at the aquarium.

Mayo’s only aquarium consists of 16 tanks, exhibiting a variety of fish found nearby, plus a selection of tropical fish from around the world. Our open top tanks allow you to get a perfect look at catsharks, crabs, thornback rays, starfish, sea urchins and many more, including ‘Nemo’ the Clownfish, and ‘Dory’ the Pacific Blue Tang.

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