There’s nothing to see in North Mayo

Following on from my Sligo post which has had thousands of views I’ve decided to do one about North Mayo. This stunning part of Ireland has also been omitted from the ‘Fill Your Heart With Ireland’ Global campaign by Tourism Ireland. So here I am to show you that there’s nothing to see in North Mayo.

Dun Briste

Dun Briste – probably my favourite location in Ireland so far. This magnificent seastack is approximately 50 metres tall and stands just off Downpatrick Head, Ballycastle.

Belleek WoodsBelleek Woods, Ballina, the perfect place to walk, jog or cycle. There’s even a fairy forest.

River MoyThe River Moy, Ballina. One of the most popular salmon rivers in Ireland.

CarrowteigueThe Carrowteige Loop Walks. A choice of cliff walks overlooking the Wild Atlantic Way.

Sculpture and Lacken StrandLacken. Located between Killala and Ballycastle. Clifftop walks and coastal views.

Killala HarbourKillala. A pretty seaside village with a round tower that’s over 1000 years old.
