Things to do


Crystal waters, mountainous islands, Blue Flag beaches, and protected parkland decorated by mellow blanket bogs, bubbling streams, and rivers where salmon and sea trout flourish.

In County Mayo, where the southern and western reaches of the Wild Atlantic Way Surf Coast melt into the northern expanses of the Bay Coast, you’ll find a land of vivid wild beauty, capped by Mweelrea - its highest peak - in the south, and hemmed to the north and west by the roaring Atlantic.

In this distinctly western yet individualistic Irish county, organic artisan restaurants spring up next to ancient castles, and adventure-seekers find thrills in glacial landscapes in the company of stone age monuments. Mayo is home to the Great Western Greenway, Ireland’s longest off-road walking and cycling trail, its largest offshore island (Achill) and incredible sights like the sacred mountain of Croagh Patrick and irresistibly island-freckled Clew Bay.

From coastal Westport’s bustling streets to the Gaeltacht town of Belmullet, there are places to visit and things to do in Mayo that will surprise and delight every type of visitor with every type of taste.
