Further details outdoors

The Mullet peninsula is an area of unspoiled natural beauty and mystique, which is becoming a very popular tourist location. Its latest attraction is an 18-hole championship links golf course at Carne, west of Belmullet. The peninsula is about 33 km in length and 12 km wide at the widest points, narrowing to about 400 metres in the region of Elly Bay. The trip from Belmullet to Blacksod Point (21 km) gives a good understanding of the nature of the peninsula: its west coast, exposed to the Atlantic, is wild and beautiful, while the east overlooks the inlet of Blacksod Bay. Along the way there is Binghamstown, Elly Bay, with its beautiful beaches, and Aghleam (Eachleim), a popular place for Irish language courses. The ruins of the successor of St. Deirbhile's 6th century church with its Romanesque west doorway, her possible grave, and some early cross-pillars can be seen at Falmore (Fál Mór) on the south-west end of the peninsula. To the south-east, there is a splendid view of the cliffs of Achill. Offshore, the uninhabited islands of Duvillaun More, Inishkea North and South (St. Columcille) and Inishglora (St Brendan, the Navigator) contain some very interesting remains of early ecclesiastical settlements including a number of finely incised cross slabs. Inishglora is associated with a celebrated fable in Irish mythology, 'The Children of Lir' (where a group of children were turned into swans and wandered the country for 900 years). the ruin of Cross Abbey, a small medieval church the foundation of which is attributed to St. Brendan, the Navigator, in the 6th century, can be seen west of Binghamstown. There is also an interesting early ecclesiastical site at Kilmore. The northern coastline contains the remains of a number of promontory forts. The Mullet peninsula is a popular location for sea-angling. It is also renowned for its unique bird-life, some of which deserve special mention. Termoncarragh Lough, now under the protection of the Irish Wildlife Conservancy, is home to the Red Necked Phalarope (admission to the reserve is by appointment only - for watchers that is, not birds..!). The islands of Inishkea are well-known bird sanctuaries. They provide habitats for a large colony of Barnacle Geese (winter visitors to Ireland), and Inishglora is home to a big colony of Storm Petrels. The Mullet peninsula is a Gaeltacht area with a rich heritage of traditional music, song and dance.

The trip from Belmullet to Blackpool point (21 km) gives a good understanding of the nature of the peninsula: its west coast, exposed to the Atlantic, is completely denuded of vegetation, while the east overlooks the inlet of Blacksod Bay. Along the way there is Binghamstown, Elly Bay, with its beautiful beaches, and Aghleam (Eachleim), a popular place for Irish language courses. The ruins of the successor of St. Deirbhile's 6th century church with its Romanesque west doorway, her possible grave, and some early cross-pillars can be seen at Fallmore on the south-west end of the peninsula.

Belmullet

BELMULLET TOWN

Belmullet town, about 1200 people, was laid out around 1820. It is unusual in having two major bays in Blacksod Bay and Broadhaven Bay heading up at each end of the main street and connected by a canal running through the town. The town serves the commercial and administration functions of the Erris region and is the centre for shopping and recreation for a hinterland population of some 12,000 people. It is well served with shops, banks, bakery, cafes, hotel and guest houses, hospital, garages, cinema, dance-hall, community centre, airstrip, hairdressers, swimming pool and twenty public houses.

MULLET PENINSULA

26 km by 16 km from Blacksod point on the south to Erris head in the north, it offers miles of secluded beaches and coves. It has many and varied archaeological sites. At Annagh Head there are gneisses which are some 2000 million years old, the oldest yet recorded in Ireland. The similarity of the rock type and structure to that of the eastern seaboard of North America, Newfoundland and Greenland, leads to the conclusion that they were once joined, torn apart when the Atlantic opened up 200 million years ago. It is also a well known area for many rare birds especially on the islands of lnniskea and Innisglora.

At least two Spanish Armada ships sailed into Blacksod Bay - the 'La Rata Sancta Maria Encoronada' and the 'Duquesa Santa Ana'; the 'Santiago' foundered in Broad Haven. At the summit of Glosh Hill stands a signal tower, built by the British during the Napoleonic Wars early in the nineteenth century to protect the coast from attack. There is one position in Erris where it is said that you can see four lighthouses. Eagle Island, which was first lit in 1835 is situated off Doonamo Head where the rock scenery is beautiful in this vicinity and worth a visit if you are in the mood for a walk. At the southern tip of the peninsula is a beautifully built of cut granite lighthouse at Blacksod. It was built in 1864 by Bryan Carey of Belmullet and now also contains a helicopter port to service this coast. Twelve miles out to sea is Blackrock lighthouse built in 1864 which was a very lonely place for the light-keepers especially in olden times. Finally in the northern mouth of Broadhaven bay stands Ballyglass lighthouse which guides the boats into this bay leading to Belmullet. Those lighthouses show the maritime importance of this coastline in earlier times.

EACHLÉIM (AGHLEAM)

From the gaelic Each (horse) and Léim (jump), folklore has it that a horse leapt from the western end of the townland to the east, and the land between was thus named. Ten miles south west of Belmullet, close to the unspoilt beaches of Mullagh Rua and Elly, this vibrant Gaeltacht area is steeped in tradition and culture. The Ionad Deirbhile - Eachléim Heritage Centre - gives a friendly and informative glimpse at life here in times past. Named in honour of the sixth century St Deirbhile, according to tradition she rests at nearby Fál Mór, and water from her well is said to have curative properties for eye complaints. Custom also has it that if you can pass three times through the small east window of her Chapel, heaven is your reward; another says that passing seven times means you will not die by drowning.

Ionad Deirbhile, Eachléim (Aughleam)

THE ISLANDS

Off the coast to the west lie the beautiful islands of Inis Glora, Inishkea North and South, and Dubh Oiléan Mór, on all of which monasteries flourished in Early Christian times. St Brendan the Navigator (who sailed the Atlantic in a leather boat) had links with Inis Glora, as did the fabled four Children of Lir, doomed to wander the waters of Ireland for 900 years as enchanted singing swans, spending their last 300 here before regaining human form and withering to dust.

The Inishkeas had a thriving fishing community until disaster struck on 28th October 1927, when ten fishermen were lost at sea. There were two survivors, and the Islands were abandoned shortly after. St Colmcille founded a monastery on Inishkea North. A whaling station was set up by the Norwegians in 1907 on Rusheen, a tidal island east of Inishkea South, and the remains are still evident today. The Inishkeas are internationally important with respect to birdlife - half of the Irish wintering population of Barnacle geese make these islands their home.

THE MAINLAND

GLENCASTLE

This, being the ancestral homeland, has its own page. Select it on the left.

BANGOR / BELLACORICK

On the way from Ballina or Castlebar the most notable building on the journey is the ESB power station at Bellacorick. This is a major industry in the area combining the product of west bogland by Bord na Mona to produce electricity. This is indeed an indigenous industry in every way. Further on is the village of Bangor Erris, set amongst the foothills of Nephin Beg mountain and the valley of Owenmore river, which is very well known for its salmon fishing.

GEESALA / DOOHOMA

Branching off to the left, west of Bangor, is the road to the village of Geesala. A modern hotel built as the 'Ostan Synge', now the 'Teach Iorrais' is prominent on the right. Further on around the southern coastline is Doohoma village with fine guest houses and modern lounge bars. This area was the basis for the world famous 'Playboy of the Western World' by J M Synge.

CARROWTEIGE / PORTURLIN / GLENAMOY

A vast area of virgin bog is situated north west of Glenamoy with a beautiful and interesting coastline. Porturlin, a small fishing village with a very active fishing fleet, is situated here. The cliff scenery viewed from the seaward side is fantastic, 'lit by a slanting sun' in the summer evenings. A thickly populated coastline stretches around Carrowteige and which is also a genuinely Irish speaking area.

INVER / PULLATHOMAS

Turning north at Barnatra the road leads around a coastline which could be said to be the finest in this area. Through Inver the road climbs higher overlooking Broadhaven Bay and overshadowed by the mountain of Glengad. This rough coastline facing the Atlantic was the holiday home for the Children of Lir for 300 years according to the legend.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What to Do!

WATERSPORTS

For the Watersport enthusiast or a traditional family picnic on the beach, Erris offers superb locations. The two main bays, Blacksod and Broad-Haven have miles of golden sand and gentle sheltered waters while at the more exposed Annagh Beach there is an excellent surf.

The area is renowned for Scuba Diving, Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Sailing, Canoeing and there are many safe beaches for children. Swimming, Windsurfing and Canoeing tuition is available in season, and boat trips to the islands off the coast are available on request, weather permitting..

GOLF LINKS

Possibly the most challenging 18 hole championship links golf course in Ireland, Carne is open to non-members, and visitors are most welcome. This unique course offers the unexpected twist - tactics change from the sheltered hollows to the hills and slopes, and all with a magnificent backdrop of sea, sky and mountains.

There is a 9 hole golf course at Binghamstown on the Peninsula, and a fine 9 hole pitch and putt course at Belmullet.

SEA ANGLING

Belmullet has taken its place among the leading names in sea angling centres in Europe. The Belmullet Sea Angling Club was founded in 1964, its objective - to promote sea angling as a sport for sea anglers and to provide an information service. The results were most rewarding and it is now known that almost any species of sea fish known to inhabit the waters around the British Isles can be caught at Belmullet. Thirty five varieties were caught in 1984. A major fishing festival is held here every year in the middle of August.

SHORE FISHING

Shore fishing is particularly good all round the area, both on the Atlantic coast and inner coastline of Blacksod and Broadhaven Bays. There are some recognised spots from which large catches have been taken, while there are more inviting and interesting places which have not yet been fished.

FRESH WATER ANGLING

Carrowmore Lake, the Owenmore, the Owenduff, the Munhin and the Glenamoy rivers are well known salmon and trout fishing rivers. Licences and ghillies can be got by arrangement from local hotels and guest houses.

BIRD WATCHING

The beaches and coastline of Erris are home to a variety of bird species throughout the year, making the Barony of Erris especially interesting for birdwatchers. Cormorants and a wide variety of Gulls are some of the more common birds to be seen.Several varieties of shearwaters, petrels, skuas, gulls, terns as well as puffins, choughs, gannets and kittiwakes can be found in the coastal areas. Inland you may well see a peregrine falcon, a merlin or even hear the elusive corncrake.

CÉIDE FIELDS - Achaidh Chéide

The Céide Fields Interpretative Centre illustrates one of the oldest structured farming communities in the World. This excavated site offers a chance to appreciate the life of Europe's early ancestors. The finds were preserved under bog for 5,000 years and are renowned throughout the archaeological world as the finest and earliest of their kind.

Ceide Fields - Fianna / Ceide / UCDublin

TÍR SÁILE - North Mayo Sculpture Trail

This land is riddled with the marks of mans' passage through 5000 years of settlement - so many that an old tomb, a dolmen, will be destroyed for a new road; a farmer quietly removes uncovered ruins to gain more 'useful' land. And yet to celebrate Mayo 5000 in 1993, from Ballina through Ballycastle to Fallmore, fifteen contemporary sculptures were created by artists from Denmark, Japan, Great Britain, the USA and Ireland (modestly, built to last another 5000 years). Many question why they took such great lengths to imitate the monumental efforts of the past - following the footsteps of the gods - but as my mother says 'a man can move a mountain today, and tomorrow it will be back'. It could have been a supermarket or a fast-food chain, to record how our society is progressing. These modern 'follies' do however provide an excuse to travel miles of rugged coastline, covering areas of unspoilt beauty, breath-taking scenery along some of the remotest areas of the coastal strip of North West Mayo.

WALKING

The quiet beaches on both sides of the peninsula are ideal for walking at low tide (consult tide time-table beforehand) and for taking in the panoramic view. Slieve Mór and the Cruachán Cliffs of Achill are clearly visible to the south, and much of lowland Erris can be seen to the east.

This environment offers many contrasts of terrain. The walks at Belderrig Cliffs rise 1,002 feet from the sea and follow the coastline for miles. The challenge of the natural structure of these cliffs for abseiling and mountaineering must be confronted. They also provide a natural habitat for many marine mammals and sea birds.

The Bangor Trail, the original road to Castlebar, is a spectacular walk and passable all year round. The unique undisturbed boglands, largest in Europe, the hills and slopes of rural farming communities and the many secluded coastal trails enchant the visitor. With noted equestrian facilities and many pony trekking trails in the area, this natural landscape seems all the more beautiful when viewed from the back of a mount. The real joy of exploring Erris is the solitude and sense of oneness with an undisturbed environment.

The BLANKET BOG

This living, breathing, unspoilt bogland is the largest in Europe and teeming with, wildlife and flora. The stillness and peace here is disturbed only by the sound of the Corncrake. Many species of wildfowl stop here on their migration from the Arctic, Canada and Greenland. Flora is abundant and there are varieties found here originating in the Arctic, South West Europe and North America.

TOURING

Erris is on a number of Tour Operators' itineraries - but if you've read this far, you will already have the impression that the best way is to walk the road and see what's around the next bend. There is far too much, and if you take a tour, you will leave with the yearning to come back and see more.

HERITAGE

On entering the area from the east you pass over the musical bridge at Bellacorrick. Here, if you run a stone along the top of the bridge you make music as fellow travellers have done for almost 200 years. This is an ancient land where many fables and legends were written. Evidence of man's existence on this fossilised landscape dates back before 3,000 B.C. The land is dotted with Megalithic tombs from neolithic times, Iron Age cliff forts, sites of castles from the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries with the well documented arrival of the Spanish Armada off Blacksod Bay in 1588.

The remains of the children of Lir are buried at Inishglora. According to the famous Irish Legend these four children were transformed into sweet-singing swans, doomed to wander the waters of Ireland for 900 years, before arriving at their final resting place in Erris.

The vibrant community of Erris has nurtured many famous playwrights, poets and musicians. Riocard Bairéad, the poet who lived and wrote here, is commemorated annually at Éigse Riocard Bairéad. The Straw Boys, an aspect of cultural life unique to Erris, can be seen entertaining in traditional Irish style at Weddings and other important festive occasions bringing life and luck. Join in 'Féile Chlann Lir' in late July/early August, a must for street theatre, Currach Racing and the craic. The centuries old 'Lá an Logha' on the 15th of August marks the traditional return of family and friends from abroad to celebrate this very unique local festival. There are cottage crafts featuring Aran knits, lacemaking, jewellery from hand made gifts using natural materials from the immediate area.

Meet the people in everyday life, in the shops, on the beach, at their festivals or in the many pubs where spontaneous music sessions and lively conversation will warm the heart of any visitor. Accommodation in the area is varied. Choose from Hotels, Guesthouses, Town and Country Homes and Farmhouses. Self catering holiday homes are also available. Everywhere you visit or stay you will find the highest of standards and a warmth that will be with you long after your visit has ended.

"Fantastic location to explore Erris"

We stayed at island view house in early June and the weather was lovely, helping to make the gorgeous views from the house look like something from a brochure. The house itself had everything you could think of and more. Paul we would like you to thank your mum, dad and aunt rose for making us feel so welcome. We will definitely try to book island view house again when we return to Belmullet

Dear Peter, thank you so much for the lovely review and for choosing Island View House, we really appreciate it! I will send on your best wishes to all and hope to welcome you again in the future, many thanks Paul

"Utterly splendid"

Amazing views from the house and surrounding areas. House is perfect for what we needed. Elderly mum loved the peace and she thought it was great to have bathroom and bedroom on the ground floor, and she loved rifling through the book shelves! Toys and books in the house also kept the kids (3 and 5) entertained. Apparently there's a great european golf course nearby but I don't like golf, which is a shame! Massive empty beaches were great for the kids to run about on, as well as for the dog, and I personally loved the great walks and nature trails, as did my wife. We'll be going back. Weather can't be guaranteed but it is the west coast of Ireland after all. If you strike it lucky it's amazing, and even if you don't it's still great. PS The welcome pack was a lovely touch!!

Thank you Pietro, as our first Italian guests it was a pleasure to meet you all, hope to see you in Belmullet for a Guinness in the future, slan.

"quality time together"

The house was a bit larger than we really required, but the location and space both internally and surrounding convinced us it was worth the money. If travelling with kids or family take plenty of activities, stay for two weeks not one, and hope for good weather!

Wow, many thanks for the great review, hope to see you again in 2015! Paul

"The perfect space for my extended family"

A beautiful, comfortable home to stay in while visiting for a wedding. We had peaceful walks on the beach, and stunning sunsets to enjoy while we sat and talked into the night in the cozy family room off the huge kitchen. I would absolutely stay here again. Paul was a most gracious host, and having his Dad right across the road was a comfort if we needed anything. Fantastic time in Belmullet!

Hi Katie, thank you so much for your kind words, hope to see you back in Belmullet some day, all the best..

"Well appointed - excellent property for entertaining - great location too"

We were treated really well by the family who even helped us retrieve lost luggage at the Knock airport and bring it all the way to the house (a significant journey). Nothing was too much trouble. We were met at a local landmark and escorted to the door and thereafter every effort was made to ensure our stay was great. The house itself was like a show home but well furnished, homely and spacious. Very clean and highly recommended! Great communication and helpfulness throughout the process.

Many thanks Emma and family, it was a pleasure to have you stay as our guests at Island View House and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future, have a great Christmas and Happy New Year..

"Ireland Gem"

We stayed at Island View House with family and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The house is immaculate, in a great location with magnificant views. There were 6 adults in our party and we did not feel at any time that we were crowded as the house offers plenty of space. The beach is beautiful and we had it to ourselves whenever we visited. You can walk no problems but if you are less able then you can also take the car. A car is deffinitly advised as its a long walk to the nearest shop for a paper (which is a shame). We would stay again and would reccommend it to anyone wnating to visit this area.

Many thanks Sarah, it was a pleasure to welcome you as our guests and we hope to do so again in the future.

"Beautiful place"

We were made feel very welcome on our arrival. The holiday cottage had everything we could possibly need, everything was clean and tidy and the cottage was very spacious with gorgeous views. We were blessed with lovely weather which made it all the more enjoyable. We only wish we could have stayed longer but hope to be back.

thank you Kathleen, so glad you had a good time, and hope to welcome you again in future.

"Ideal family location"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Island View House for many reasons; the location and the views; the quality and size of the house; the amenities in the house;the regular and prompt contact with the owner who was so helpful; the beach at the end of the road and the welcome pack which was indeed very welcome at the end of a long journey. This is the perfect retreat for a family who want to spend some quality time away from the hustle and bustle.

Thank you to all the Holmes family, fast becoming regulars! best wishes..
