A mad construction up behind the main road in Achill. Turn left at the church and keep going past the barn and then on and right. Free to enter, marvel at how the ancient Keeltions managed to construct such a wonderful thing in the middle of nowhere. Mad, fun, wonderful, glorious. Worth an hour of your time.

This is an odd place to find in the middle of nowhere , or almost. Achill island is a beautiful and wild place, but this concrete circular construction , which was apparently built as a protest against banks /big business after the crash of 2008 ( I am with the builders of this on that point !), seems totally out of place to me. It is an oddity , so worth a look for that, and as it is on an elevated site , there are some grand views from up there. It is marked on Google maps so can be found that way, but walk up there as the road turns into a track that will ruin a normal car. It is a mystery how this was built in such a short time, as it is huge, but so goes the story.

Built illegally over a weekend, this strange construction has become part of Ireland’s mythology. Look out for the signpost, it’s not easy to find.

Surprised there are so little reviews on this. It was awkward to find, as it isn’t meant to be there so obviously the council has no signposts, but there are a couple of shoddy local low lying signs directing the way. Search YouTube for my video for some raw directions (In Search ofAchill Henge). Google maps takes you most of the way but doesn’t pin point exactly -keep going up that hill, past the barn building and to the right. Love it. The way in which it came about, the randomness of it and the fact that it still stands... it’s all great. Bit of fun, bit of a f you to the powers that be, but also pretty imposing. It’s bigger than I thought, like quiet impressive when you consider how they would have gotten any kind of machinery up there, dig out the ground, for the blocks up there. But yet it really belongs there. I’m delighted to see that it still stands, it’s something special and should be utilized more by the council.

On the directions note DO not drive all the way up. We drove even part of the way (to the barn building) and that was a bad idea (our bumper broke haha), but I’m disabled so couldn’t make those hills walking. If you’re relatively able bodied, park at the main road and hike up. Make a day of it. Stunning views that high up too.

We looked hard to find Achill Henge on the Island after 2 false starts.
On the top of a small mountain...surrounded by bog with a bog road leading up to it.
The road is rough stone and should not be driven in a car.
Leave the car down by the large shed on the way up.
Consider this.....
A mass concrete structure made in precast sections in a circle maybe 130 ft diameter with capping stones on top.
Looks like the real thing.
So....
This builder gets his buddies drunk in the pub and says
Lads....I was thinking about doing something the next bank holiday weekend. Do you wanna have fun ?
The bog had to be dug out for concrete foundations....on top of the mountain.
A road to be dug to get the diggers and the concrete trucks up there.
And it all had to be done in a weekend.
"Who.s with me lads"?
The most outragious....audacious....crazy stunt ever pulled off......EVER.
The courts have been trying since 2012 to have it removed but the builder says it is a Garden ornament and does not need planning permission.
A MUST SEE.
Rough ground surface for walking .... not for toddlers or 80 yr olds.
On the road from Keel Strand to Keem Strand.
Ask locally for directions.

I can see very little reason for the existance of the Achill Henge.

It is a pile of concrete pillars in a field above Achill. A nice walk to get up to it and an amazing view once you are there. No more than that.

You can only walk there. This takes about 15-20 mins according to your fitness levels. There is no other way of getting to the dubiously named "attraction" There are some amazing examples of quartz rocks on the walk up.

You cannot go into the Henge (through the pillars) very easily as it is built around a large fragmented crop of disjointed rocks. Just to make the whole look that bit more Soviet, it is covered in grafitti.
