About this location
The Western Ireland region
Co. Mayo has a wide variety of landscapes; an extensive dramatic coastline, glorious beaches, sweeping mountains, large freshwater lakes and blanket bog. There are a number of salmon rivers, of which the Moy is world renowned. The county is particularly well developed for holidaymakers and is a delight to tour. Marked walking trails of varying difficulty and length abound and the 40km Great Western Greenway from Westport to Achill Sound, via Newport and Mulranny on the disused railway is a stress free trail for walking and cycling with children. Bicycles are for hire in all four towns.
To the south of the county lies Connemara with its mountains and wild landscapes and jewel like lakes and Ireland's dramatic fjord, Killary Harbour, reached through the brooding Delphi valley.
To the east lies Sligo and Yeats Country and the impressive bulk of the table mountain, Ben Bulben.
Clew Bay on which lie the towns of Mulranny, Newport and Westport is one of Ireland's loveliest areas the bay being filled with green whale shaped islands on which sheep and cattle graze. At low tide much of the northern side of the bay empties out leaving foot access to many of the islands and allows the farmers and fishermen to drive their livestock and tractors over the seabed.
Mayo has an Atlantic climate, but there is plenty to do on a wet day and anyway the weather changes rapidly in summer and the sea is surprisingly warm in late summer.
There are plenty of attractions; the Ceide Feilds, the Museum of Country Life, Westport House - children love the activities there - and all the major towns have cinemas. Westport town is well worth a visit and is one of the most charming towns in the region. It has an 18 hole golf course and Mulranny a 9 hole gem among the dunes. Fishing is widely available on the sea, lake or river.
Tiernaur lies on the north side of Clew Bay where the tide goes out for about 2 miles leaving a vast expanse of sand and many islands accessible on foot. Croagh Patrick mountain dominates the southern skyline and Clare Island guards the approach to the bay and can be visited by boat on a day trip. The Newfield Inn serves food all day.
Mulranny, 3 miles away, is a charming small town with two small supermarkets and a hotel, the Park Inn, which has a good restaurant, leisure centre and indoor pool. Mulranny has a blue flag beach and a fascinating salt marsh, home to over 100 Brent Geese in winter. There is another fine beach across the golf links.
Newport, 6 miles away, has two excellent butchers and a small supermarket as well as other shops. It is a most attractive town with a navigable river estuary reaching into the heart of the town. Newport House has a top class restaurant in beautiful surroundings.
The Pirate Queen, Granuaile's Castle is just down the road and there is a slip for launching boats at Roigh Pier.
Tiernaur is a straggling community of farmers and fishermen off the main road; it has the wonderful feeling of remoteness yet is close to all modern facilities.
