The Achill Archaeological Field School, founded in 1991, is a Training School for students of archaeology and anthropology.

Located in the west of Ireland on Achill Island in County Mayo, the Field School is involved in a study of the prehistoric and historic landscape at Slievemore, an area rich in archaeological monuments that span a 5000 year period from the  Neolithic to the Post Medieval.

Academic Credit for overseas students is provided by the National University of Ireland at Galway, with whom the School has formal linkage.
