  • Croaghaun (Iers:Cruachán) is een berg in County Mayo, Ierland. Met zijn 688 meter (2.257 voet) is het de hoogste zeeklip in Ierland en de op twee na hoogste in Europa, na de Hornelen in Noorwegen en Kaap Enniberg in Faeröer. Croaghaun is de meest westelijke en hoogste bergtop op Achill Island. De klippen liggen aan de noordelijke zijde van de berg. Als gevolg daarvan kunnen deze alleen gezien worden vanaf zee of na een wandeltocht rond de top van de berg. Ze maken deel uit van een serie rotswanden die starten bij de Baai van Keem en een keten vormen rond het vrijwel onbewoonde noord-westen van het eiland. Zowel Achill Head en Saddle Head maken hier deel van uit. De reeks loopt door tot Slievemore. Op verschillende plaatsen lopen de rotswanden vrijwel loodrecht de zee in. (nl)
  • Croaghaun (Irish: Cruachán) is a mountain in County Mayo, Ireland. At 688 metres (2,257 ft), it has the highest sea cliffs in Ireland and Great Britain as well as the third highest sea cliffs in Europe (after Hornelen, Norway and Cape Enniberg, Faroe Islands). Croaghaun is the most westerly peak of Achill Island, and its highest mountain. Its cliffs lie on the northern slope of the mountain. The cliffs at Croaghaun can only be seen by hiking around or to the summit of the mountain, or from the sea. They are part of a sequence of sheer rock faces which start south of Keem Bay and loop around the uninhabited north-west of the island, by Achill Head and Saddle Head, and east to Slievemore, occasionally dropping vertically into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The Croaghaun cliffs are home to two families of peregrine falcons (RTÉ, 2008). September and October are the best time to see the fastest creatures on Earth here, as they teach their young to fly. Metamorphic, quartz-laden gems may be observed, along with Mediterranean heathers and the waters of the Atlantic. It is common to see shoals of bottle-nosed dolphins and basking sharks, once a source of revenue for Achill Island (BBC, 2009). Porpoises are found in large numbers. Killer whales, humpback whales, and other whales have been sighted. (en)
