About County Mayo
Get ready for awe-inspiring scenery and a wealth of historical attractions
Mayo stands out as one of Ireland’s most scenic counties. But while you may gasp in awe at the craggy coastline that’s been lashed by the powerful Atlantic, make sure to remember that there’s a lot more going on in Mayo in the West of Ireland.
Ceide Fields are the oldest known field systems in the world (almost 6000 years old), Croagh Patrick is where Ireland's patron saint fasted for 40 days in 441AD, and Achill Island is a stunning spot on the edge of Western Europe bursting with history and awe-inspiring sights.
And if all that wasn’t enough, there’s an abundance of charming villages to visit from beautifully situated Westport to the peaceful town of Cong.
