Depending on how you define sea cliffs, Achill Island’s Croaghaun Mountain could hold the title of the highest in Europe. At over 600m, it is double the height of the Cliffs of Moher in Co Clare and even taller than Co Donegal’s Slieve League which advertises itself as Europe’s highest. An extremely scenic drive to the car park at Keem Bay on the western edge of the island will take you to the foot of Croaghaun… then it’s all uphill on foot from there. Watch out for sheep droppings.
