Beautiful Mayo Beaches and the Bog

- Posted on: 27/06/2022 - Claggan Island Mayo TWINTREECMS01

The beaches in Mayo North really are second to none. Whether you are looking for beautiful clean white sands for a leisurely picnic, a refreshing swim, fun with the family, a refreshing walk or an afternoon surf, the area’s unique and tranquil beaches won’t disappoint you. And sometimes, you’ll even have them all to yourself!

Escape the hustle and bustle and take some time out to visit our fabulous blue flag Ross Beach near Killala, a 20 min drive from the Twin Trees Hotel. As you approach, on the right you'll see a sandy beach and the stretch on the left offers a haven for children who love nothing more than exploring the rock pools and spotting the sea life.

While the tide is out, a 5km looped walk will take you around the coast, past the Coastguard Station and onto a stunning Beach, a real local secret, before bringing you back along the quiet road to your starting point. Do check the tides in advance however!

If you haven't taken one of the Twin Trees & Leisure Club's packed lunches, you can visit the fabulous wild bog-lands of Mayo North, the 'Ceide Fields' for lunch.   This is a short drive from the beach and where you can also see the megalithic tombs & stonewalled fields extending over hundreds of hectares dating back almost 6,000 years.  This is the most extensive Stone Age monument in the world, consisting of field systems, dwelling areas and megalithic tombs over 6,000 years old.

The award winning visitor centre is set against some of the most dramatic rock formations in Ireland. A viewing platform on the edge of the 110- metre-high cliff will help you make the most of the breathtaking scenery. Tel: 096 43325 Email:
