This beautiful spot at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way has so much to offer – from blue-flag beaches to the mesmerizing bogland, stories of Pirate Queen Grace O’ Malley in Westport House to isolated bliss on Achill Island, you can hear Gaeilge spoken in a quaint rural pub, and then the next day find yourself in a cosmopolitan town such as Castlebar.
Let’s go to County Mayo!
