Pleasure principle: A view over Achill Island

We were on Co Mayo’s Achill for less than a day and a half. The weather was stormy. We had brought a baby and a toddler with us. On the face of it, it might not seem like a reason to make a place special. And yet it is.

We went there for New Year’s Eve 2017. We never go anywhere for New Year’s Eve, least of all with babies. But there was a bit of a freebie at a festival and people do odd things for something free.
