Mayo boasts a stunningly beautiful unspoilt environment with a magical attraction for visitors.
Cosmopolitan towns exude charm and personality, as welcoming as the Mayo people themselves. The standard and availability of accommodation is excellent and the range of visitor attractions and activities expands each year. Unique highlights include The Great Western Greenway (a 42 km off-road cycling and walking trail - the longest of its type in Ireland!), and Croagh Patrick (Ireland's holy mountain) with the starkly beautiful National Famine Memorial at its foot and spectacular Views of Clew Bay and its many islands from the summit.
History comes alive at the world famous Ceide Fields in North Mayo where man's imprint on the land dates back 5,000 years, whilst the extensive Jackie Clarke Collection (one of the most important historical collections of Irish artefacts in the World) can be seen in the town of Ballina.
Quite simply, Mayo is amazing!
