Ballycastle: McNamee's The Seaview Lounge and XL Store - Visit North Mayo

The Seaview Lounge is located in the village of Ballycastle in the Céide Coast, north Mayo. The Seaview Lounge is a family run business, in operation for over forty years on the Wild Atlantic Way. 

The business overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and Downpatrick Head, where legend has it that St. Patrick banished the snakes out of Ireland. The Seaview Lounge is also only five kilometers from the famous 6,000-year-old Neolithic site, the Céide Fields.

Relaxing environment

Enjoy a relaxed drink at the well-known The Seaview Lounge Bar where you will be assured of a warm welcome.   

The Seaview Lounge boasts old charm combined with modern facilities. There’s a quiet beer garden available to customers to bask in the sunshine. The Seaview Lounge can cater for all types of functions and events and serves snacks and bar food during the day.

McNamee’s XL

McNamee’s also run the ‘XL’ grocery store next door (the same premises ) – in 2019 the store was the Winner of 2019 Gold Retailing Standard Award. Each day the store produces fresh baked goods, and if, perhaps, time is limited, and you must see all of this wonderful and breathtaking North Mayo Coast then a quick snack from their hot and cold deli with coffee or maybe an ice-cream cone to go will leave you full and content to continue on your journey.
