County Mayo is located in the West Region and is also part of the province of Connacht. County Mayo is the third largest of Ireland’s 32 counties and is the second largest of Connacht’s five counties in both size and population.
Castlebar and Ballina are the two most populous towns in the county. These are followed by Westport, a popular tourist town, which has some 5,000 residents. The fourth largest town is Claremorris, a market town.
The county has experienced perhaps the highest emigration out of Ireland. Initially triggered by the Great Famine and then in search of work in the newly industrialising United Kingdom and the United States.
Westport is one of only two planned towns in Ireland and is attractively located near the sea with Croagh Patrick as a stunning backdrop.
Amongst its outstanding features are the elegant tree lined streets along the Mall River, the bustling shopping streets with lively shop and pub fronts and the busy weekly market at the octagon, the central square.
Just a short drive from westport, towards and beyond Louisburgh, you will find beaches which are among the most beautiful, biggest and safest to be found anywhere in Europe. Most are signposted and very uncrowded.
