Summer is in full swing, so here are our top ten tips when visiting County Mayo with the family!



Ten Things to do in County Mayo

  1. Visit Westport House – Okay, we may be a little biased on this one putting it at the top of the list 🙂
  2. Climb Croagh Patrick (or what the locals call ‘The Reek’) – Not for the faint hearted, but the views at the top are completely worth it!
  3. Cycle the Great Western Greenway – What was once a train line running from Westport to Achill, has now been transformed into a stunning 42km cycle route. A great way to get some fresh air with the family!
  4. Visit Achill Island – Ireland’s largest island.
  5. Visit Downpatrick Head and the Céide Fields – Older than the pyramids of Egypt!
  6. Visit the National Museum of Ireland & Country Life – situated in the stunning grounds of Turlough Park
  7. Take a boat trip through Killary Fjord – Probably one of the most stunning and scenic tours you will ever do (if we do say so ourselves).
  8. Pay a trip to the beautiful Ballycroy National Park – 11,000 hectares of Atlantic blanket bog and mountainous terrain, covering a vast uninhabited and unspoilt wilderness dominated by the Nephin Beg mountain range.
  9. Visit the setting for the famous film ‘ The Quiet Man’ – Cong is one of the most picturesque villages in Mayo.
  10. Go swimming or build a sand castle – at one of Mayo’s many gorgeous blue flag beaches including Bertra, Old Head, Mulranny and Carrowmore.
