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 – probably my favourite location in Ireland so far. This magnificent seastack is approximately 50 metres tall and stands just off Downpatrick Head, Ballycastle.
Belleek Woods, Ballina, the perfect place to walk, jog or cycle. There’s even a fairy forest.
The River Moy, Ballina. One of the most popular salmon rivers in Ireland.
The Salmon Festival. Every July Ballina comes to life with a week long festival and something for everyone.
The Carrowteige Loop Walks. A choice of cliff walks overlooking the Wild Atlantic Way.
Lacken. Located between Killala and Ballycastle. Clifftop walks and coastal views.
Killala. A pretty seaside village with a round tower that’s over 1000 years old.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to places to see in North Mayo. For more suggestions check out the fantastic Mayo North website.
