For the more adventurous Achill boasts no less than two adventure centres which offer the best in windsurfing, sailing, abseiling, diving and many other activities.

Watersports are popular all over the county. Whether on the coast or by the idyllic shores of Loughs Corrib, Carra, and Mask, freshwater fishing and angling are hugely popular. And whole those who like to fish do so there is a wealth of wildlife on the coast or in the lakes. Tours are available of favourite haunts of everything from otters to dolphins. The town of Westport is especially suitable for those with a love of fishing no matter what style or type you prefer.

Mayo also contains one of the world's most famous sites of religious pilgrimage in Knock. The Marian Shrine there is visited every year by hundreds of thousands of people and an airport was built to cater to the increasing number of visitors.
