Achill Island (Irish: Acaill, Oileán Acla) on the Wild Atlantic Way in Mayo is the largest island off the coast of Ireland. It has a population of over 2,700. Achill is attached to the mainland by a bridge. It was first completed in 1887, replaced by another structure in 1949, and subsequently replaced with the current bridge which was completed in 2008. Early human settlements are believed to have been established on Achill around 3000 BC.
