The Nephin Drive is a lovely, scenic route that takes you through the stunning Nephin Begs Mountain Range as well as the towns of Westport, Castlebar and Newport.

An enjoyable looped route of about 85km, predominantly along quiet country roads, you’ll get up close and personal with the rawest, most undiscovered of Mayo’s landscapes.

The route brings you close to the lovely Wild Nephin Wilderness Park,  and the stunning mountain ranges of beautiful, remote Keenagh – a walker’s paradise. Should you wish, you can park up and enjoy a tour of the visitor centre, or you can stop off for a nice lunch or coffee in any of the towns or villages.
