Newport and the Wild Atlantic Way

Post by In1 Solutions on Blog

After exploring Achill Island, you can head east, past Mulranny and into Newport.

The village of Newport nestles in Clew Bay at the mouth of Newport River. Its sheltered harbour is a welcome stop for any boating enthusiasts.

The Great Western Greenway glides through Newport too so it is a haven for cyclists and walkers. The traditional pubs and cafés are the perfect places to relax and rest before you take in the sights of the local area and the Wild Atlantic Way.

Rockfleet Castle is just a few kilometers outside the village. Built in the mid-16th Century, Rockfleet Castle once belonged to Grace O’Malley, or Granuaile, The Sea Queen of Connacht.

Otherwise, stay closer to home and take the Heritage Trail around Newport before heading back to Twin Trees Hotel, about a 40 minutes’ drive away if you head towards majestic Nephin.
