Achill Island Sea Salt is a family business founded in 2013. Using a combination of traditional methods and modern technology, we slowly evaporate the sea water to leave behind pure, white, sea salt flakes. The soft salt crystals melt instantly into food, creating an intense flavour. Our vision is to create long-term, sustainable jobs on Achill Island and promote the area as a food experience destination.
Údarás na Gaeltachta aided Salann Mara Acla/Achill Island Sea Salt by helping to develop a unique visitor centre and salt production facility. This was officially opened by the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring TD in Bun an Churraigh. The Achill Island Sea Salt Visitor centre, offers an educational behind the scenes tour of their unique sea salt production facility, a long-forgotten tradition which existed on Achill Island up until the 1800s. The visitors centre and sea salt production facility is located in an Údarás na Gaeltachta facility in Bun an Churraigh, Acaill.
