The area and getting around

Ireland's highest sea cliffs!

Located on the western tip of Achill Island on the north face of Mount Croaghan, the massive Croaghaun Cliffs are the highest sea cliffs in Ireland. The site is considered one of the unique places in County Mayo and is 687 metres high, making it the third-highest in Europe. To get to the top it will take you about two hours, depending on your pace, but it's completely worth the climb to enjoy the views of the Atlantic Ocean. Croaghaun Cliffs are also home to Ireland's highest lake, Bunnafreva Lough West, which provides a place to relax.

Keem Bay: One of Ireland's most beautiful beaches

Stretching for 3.5 km, Keem's secluded beach is one of the most beautiful in all of Ireland and one of County Mayo's most prized gems. It lies in the shadow of Croaghan on the western tip of Achill Island and is surrounded by magnificent, jaw-dropping mountain scenery. The white sands and contrasting turquoise waters make it an ideal spot for surfers and swimmers. The transparent waters are also so clean that it has been awarded the Blue Flag. Keem Bay is also a paradise for other sports such as diving and windsurfing.

Travellers and activities

County Mayo for hiking lovers

Croagh Patrick is undoubtedly one of the best places in May if you love walking. Nicknamed “The Reek”, Croagh Patrick is the fourth-highest mountain in the county and has a tricky climb to the top. However, it offers some of the best panoramic views in Ireland and plenty of places to rest if you need to. It is also considered Ireland's holiest mountain. But If you're looking for something a little less challenging, Erris Head Loop Walk is a spectacular walk and conservation area of about 5 km. Alternatively, the glorious Wild Nephin Ballycroy National Park also has trails to suit all levels of walkers.

County Mayo for cycling lovers

With 42 km of traffic-free cycling lanes, the Great Western Greenway is a great choice for cyclists. An adventure along this stretch allows you to enjoy views of the Nephing Beg Mountains all the way to Croagh Patrick. The Greenway now takes cyclists from the town of Westport to Achill Island, Mayo's most popular cycling destination. Achill has narrow lanes with few cars, while Westport offers three routes of between 8 and 24 kilometres. The Clew Bay Bike Trail is also popular with experienced cyclists and runs through some of Mayo's most attractive towns along the coast of Clew Bay.

County Mayo is the third-largest county in Ireland and its name originates from Mhaigh Eo which translates as “Plain of the Yew Trees”, one of Ireland's few native evergreen trees.
