County Mayo Coasts & Bays

Post by Marketing on Events & Festivals

You can happily lose yourself among bay after brilliant bay in gorgeous County Mayo. With Mweelrea – its highest peak – perched in the south and those invigorating Atlantic waves cradling its north and western edges, this landscape extends quite the invitation.

Get to grips with some long-gone cultural heritage in The Lost Valley, Louisburgh. With its ancient village ruins and undisturbed landscape, it’s an unforgettable way to learn more about The Great Famine and starkly brings the hardship endured to life. Also home to a working farm, visitors get a true taste of west of Ireland rurality and of course, mesmerising natural scenery. Considered ‘lost’ because access to it was treacherous until the late 1980s, this lush valley has been in the Bourke family for more than a century.
