The sun doesn't have to shine in Mayo to have a good time this May, and with such a variety of festivals & shows already planned for May, all you have to do is book your accommodation at the Downhill House Hotel for a memorable holiday.
Spring is well and truly here! With it comes a packed calendar of events happening around the county. We're eager to get our fill of culture, excitement & adventure this May.
Longer evenings and warmer weather will provide the perfect excuse to get out of the house and do something special, whether it's a hiking trip, a literary festival or a family picnic in a national park.
But don't stop there - it's onwards & upwards from now on, as we put some spring in our step with brighter days and (fingers crossed) a hint of sunshine...
