The large peninsula, which is very nearly an island, lying between Achill and the mainland of Mayo is called Corraun (Ir. Corrán Acla, 'sickle of Achill'). The name may refer to the shape of this hill or perhaps to the promontory Gubnahardia, near which the village of Corraun is situated. Corraun is part of the parish of Achill. For a walk on the S slopes of Corraun Hill, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk M.   Corraun Hill is the 492nd highest summit in Ireland.

A view of Corraun from the south west
by wicklore  21 Jul 2014
This view of a dark and brooding Corraun in the background contrasts sharply with the bright green grass, white sands and aquamarine water of sunlit Achillbeg island, just across the narrow sea to Corraun's south west. Knockletragh, 452m, is just visible as it pokes its rounded summit over Corrauns left shoulder. Bungalow Bliss is visible all around Corrauns southern flanks.
