Just a short drive from Twin Trees Hotel is the quaint village of Ballycastle.
Travel from Ballina towards Killala and you are halfway to the sleepy village of Ballycastle (total drive less than 30 minutes). It’s not so sleepy in the summer months, though, especially for the Healyfest music festival over the August Bank Holiday.
You can relax and unwind in the village or visit the rugged coastline close by.
The awe-inspring Dún Briste (The Broken Fort), or Downpatrick Head, is a 45 metre high sea stack which was severed by storms from the Irish mainland over 600 years ago. A short drive or a beautiful walk will take you there.
The area is the stuff of history and legend.
Head west from the village and we creep into the annals of pre-history. The world famous Céide Fields is a remarkable neolithic site which contains the oldest stone-walled fields in the world, dating back over 6000 years. An absolute must-see!
Follow the coastline west and you will reach Broadhaven Bay, a beautiful conservation area. Here too, you be able to see the Stags of Broadhaven, a group of jagged rocks which rise 100 metres out of the sea.
It is easier to follow the main road to Glenamoy and head back up northwest to the area rather than keeping as close to the coastline for this section of the journey.
